Thursday Doors 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana

A memory of a summer day with perhaps not as many doors but with the kind of urban sights that I miss the most. I’m a city girl, no way around it. My tenth year in rural Tuscany finds me relaxed, still marvelling at the pine-green and sky-blue palette that surrounds me, and yet piningContinue reading “Thursday Doors 24/11/22: Urban Ljubljana”

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”

August 2021

I’m still here, just less so. It’s the time of month to look back a year and re-experience my last year’s August. How are you? I miss you and your blogs. I’m still in Slovenia, waiting for the basketball Euro Championship to begin (and end) before I return to Tuscany. It is a completely differentContinue reading “August 2021”

July 2021

Before July runs away from us, here is how this month went by last year in twenty images. I’m not pleased with my levels of creativity here in Slovenia at all. I’ve needed three weeks to come up with this post, July for my Calendar 2021. Mostly it’s because my body is using all theContinue reading “July 2021”

Last photos of June

Isn’t this a case of good timing! While there may be only flowers as the last photo on my camera, my phone provides something special. First, the flowers: And here are my last two photos on my phone since I didn’t pack my camera to The Game on purpose. I knew I’d be otherwise occupied.Continue reading “Last photos of June”

Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial. Mercurial Nine is the times you cried for my love. Eight times I said no and cried back. Seven was not even when six cameContinue reading “Mercurial”

Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste

I made it! With this post my one year of daily blogging is complete. With this post we have made the full circle of one year together. Thank you for all your visits and words! I’ll be posting less from now on through the summer but will still drop by, for example on Thursdays. BeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste”

Team spirit

Just a recent poem today with some unrelated orange photos to make the Suns feel better. Team spirit Can you feel it? Sing, singe, synergy. Team spirit – knowing that nothing beats synergy – trumps teen spirit – thinking you are the only one who can. So what if now you can only sway insteadContinue reading “Team spirit”

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.”
