PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 4.

How are you, people? I hope you’re having a hooping Sunday. To round up this series, here is more art from the botanical garden in the south of Tuscany last summer. After two poems in April, inspired by this visit, last week we started our stroll through this exhibition called ENDGAME (after Samuel Beckett’s play)Continue reading “PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 4.”

Happy birthday to me

Here is an overview of past birthdays since today is one such. Yes, it happened: in the early hours of today I got the best present that no money could buy. In the first half Luka Dončić scored 27 points, the same as all of the Suns combined. It only got worse (for the latter).Continue reading “Happy birthday to me”

PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 3.

Good to see Marsha back in the PPAC saddle. Here is more art from the botanical garden Corsini. After April when two art pieces from the exhibition “Endgame” inspired two poems (Boy with Deer and Hanging Tree), today I show you more artistic interventions in the Botanical Garden Corsini in Porto Ercole as viewed lastContinue reading “PPAC: Botanical Garden Corsini 3.”

Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me. I promised Friendly Friday Sarah to do my best in finding leading lines in my photos, but then I got distractedContinue reading “Friendly Friday leading cat lines”

Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy

I set out to find green doors in my archives and immediately had 50 photos from one year alone. That’s why today Italy, Slovenia next week. Last week K. mentioned in a comment to my post that she liked green doors and I was reminded of the green door post I did once before. IContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy”

Bottlebrush progression

May is the month when bottlebrush (Callistemon) starts to bloom around here in Tuscany and one bush is conveniently placed in a garden just behind our home. This is how it went last May. And if you are impatiently waiting to flower, think about what Denise Riley wrote about it in the essay “Lyric Shame”Continue reading “Bottlebrush progression”

A man on the roof

Last year at this time I was going slightly mad. What else is new, eh? Here he is, unassuming, innocent, spotted and shot from far away for being a novelty. I lacked impulses so much that five minutes with a man on the roof meant the world to me. And this year that I couldContinue reading “A man on the roof”

Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem

Because it’s Thursday, because my friend asks me what doors mean to me, and because we are to shape up our poem today – the shape can be only one. Prompt 28: “Write a concrete poem. In brief, a concrete poem is one in which the lines are shaped in a way that mimics theContinue reading “Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem”

Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile

A post with a heart of light and gold today, since the Mavericks won so mercilessly last night. Who’d say that the most joy I’ll be getting will be from a 23-year-old Slovenian having fun playing basketball in Dallas? I almost wrote another poem for Luka (following this one) but that would be an exaggeration,Continue reading “Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile”

Day 24: Body of work

Today I woke up, read the prompt, fell back into dreams, and awoke with the first part of the poem. It is also the birthday of my elephant-loving friend without a single elephant in my post and the election day in Slovenia. Prompt 24: “Hard-boiled detective novels are known for their use of vivid similes,Continue reading “Day 24: Body of work”
