Thursday Doors 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran

Here are the last doors from Piran for this year as a goodbye, with some weather, music and Luka news. Today I left the coast and after a two-hour drive in heavy downpour arrived in Ljubljana in the centre of Slovenia, where I get to hear Konstrakta live with her band in a couple ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran”

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”

Thursday Doors with a view 30/6/22: Piran

Today’s doors, all taken this month in Piran, come with some sort of view, be it of the sea, of the town below, through the arch, or in a reflection. Welcome to join me on a stroll through Piran with the views I get on my dog walks. And the doors, the doors are alwaysContinue reading “Thursday Doors with a view 30/6/22: Piran”

Thursday Doors 9/6/22: Piran

This is the first door from Piran. After I’ve been here for a week, 55 door photos are waiting already. I was especially glad that Dan was on holidays last week since exactly on Thursday I was travelling to Slovenia where I am now and will stay for three months. It was the shortest andContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/6/22: Piran”

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”

Day 11 & April 2021

Today I look back a year and show you last April in twenty images for my Calendar series, and in the poem talk to a giant floating island of plastics, as one does. Prompt 11: “Following up on yesterday’s love poem, I have for you another deceptively simple challenge. Today, I’d like to challenge youContinue reading “Day 11 & April 2021”

Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction

I knew this day would come: Today I just must post the poem which I wrote on Thursday, because my love for Luka is stronger than any rules. This post will be interesting to you if you love basketball at least a little. If not, you will learn something about me: I’m a fan. LoveContinue reading “Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction”

Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.

This is the last door post from the open-door day last May when I visited three properties south of Siena in Tuscany. But first, two images and a poem. The first was shared today by a dear friend with this quote: When a great moment knocks on the door of your life, it is oftenContinue reading “Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.”

Thursday Doors 17/3/22: Castello Poggiarello 1.

On an open-door day last May I did a lovely three-garden tour near Siena but only posted doors from the first garden. What was I thinking? Is St. Patrick’s Day a sign of spring? Because yesterday it happened over here: First I saw the first rows of processionary moth caterpillars, then I heard the firstContinue reading “Thursday Doors 17/3/22: Castello Poggiarello 1.”

Bestia and beasties

Here is another stroll through my last March with the emphasis on animals other than birds (which already got a recent post). This post is to honour Sunra Nina (here is her recent Poem the Wind Blew Over) who was hopping around my blog for a while and today happily announced that she Finally CaughtContinue reading “Bestia and beasties”
