November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. Let’s start with a photo that my uncle in Ljubljana sent me almost three weeks ago, of his Japanese maple in all its November splendour. Next, today is theContinue reading “November 2021”

Thursday Doors 25/8/22: August 2021

As I was choosing photos for my most recent 2021 Calendar post, many doors obediently popped up, begging me to make a Thursday Doors post with them. Who am I to say no. Here they are then, the majority from Ljubljana, a few from Maribor, Slovenia’s city #2, and the last five from Italy toContinue reading “Thursday Doors 25/8/22: August 2021”

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”

May 2021

The selection was not easy, but here are twenty photos from last May for my Calendar. Frankly, I could easily post nothing but twenty photos of poppies, twenty of other flowers, twenty of animals, or twenty from my two day trips. Here is a bit of everything then. May is possibly the prettiest month aroundContinue reading “May 2021”

Day 30: Magic cento

Today is the day to finish things and maybe start new ones. We had another amazing April, my fifth, in the company of Maureen’s prompts and all the poets and their poems. My last poem is for you all. Prompt 30: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a cento. This is a poemContinue reading “Day 30: Magic cento”

Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal

Today is the Liberation Day in Italy, and in my poem two ladies of the marshes are fighting for my body and soul. I have a nice memory from last year’s Liberation Day. We drove to the lagoon again after being locked into our municipality for ages, but the supermarket was closed and we wentContinue reading “Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal”

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”

Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Why is it that some things end up together? And why don’t I shoot the doors in Slovenia the same way as in Italy? First the poem, and then the doors with an invitation to write about them. Prompt 21: “This prompt asks you to write a poem in which you first recall someone youContinue reading “Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

Day 13: Stream of a con

How about some random thoughts about a calf and how amazing things are going to be? Prompt 13: “Today, in honor of the potential luckiness of the number 13, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that, like the example poem here, joyfully states that ‘Everything is Going to Be Amazing.’“ Stream ofContinue reading “Day 13: Stream of a con”
