Spring is not on its way yet obviously.
Back to winter.
The plot thickens. The spaceship passengers now seems to be ruled by a dictator that blames a few people for the memories central destroyment. They have to hide deep down in the spaceship. They try to explain their innocence by inventing every kind of language they can think of to make the angry mass understand, but it is like blind-man’s-buff.
In their room deep down in spacehip they try sending their messages with the language of trees and plants, but that’s doesn’t seems to help either. They see it all so clear but cannot make the angy masses and the dictator to understand anyway.
I can’t wait to read the next verse of this exciting poem that I get the inspiration to my drawings from. It’s a dark story about mankind, but very important if we ever learn from it and do different than they do in the poem.
Do you have a challenge for your self?
This series of drawings is my challenge. So far I made 31 out of 103 drawings, so I have a bit left before I reach the goal 😉
I repost an old post. I live much of my life in my mind. It’s like traveling through universe. I find many art ideas there on my journey. So this poem I find very beautiful and well written/Anna
I read a blogpost on HarsH ReaLiTy/have you ever if you ever, http://aopinionatedman.com/2015/01/20/have-you-ever-if-you-never/
that made me think of another poem.
This poem i found in a book about the Shakespeare era. A great inspiration for me and maybe also for you. Enjoy!
I think the poem celebrates introversion. Learning more about celebrating introversion go see the TED-talk with Susan Cain. This is one of my paintings dealing with the questions introvert/extrovert. I call it And the winner is?
In the post Make a puzzle calendar I told you about the idea of making a puzzle calendar.
No the puzzle is finished.
Global warming isn’t always bad…
I found these in the forest today
I gave them to a friend as an early Christmas present or whatever. You actually can give people little gifts no matter what day it is. Never mind if it’s a gift holiday, a birthday or something else day. Just give the gift when you feel like it 🙂
Today it’s Anna Day in Sweden. You can read more about Christmas traditions on Anna Day here, if you find out how to translate the Swedish text.
The tradition says the Anna day is the time to start preparing the lutefisk and it’s also the day for Christmas beer brewing. These days I think most people buy prepared lutefisk and don’t brew their own Christmas beer. Many doesn’t even eat lutefisk today, so it’s old traditions. Though they still live in the meaning I get to hear every Anna Day that it’s time for the lutefisk work.
But I got something much tastier today 🙂
First saffron bun for this season. In Swedish we call them Lussekatt. A direct translation of that would be Lucy cat. We eat them at Christmas, but the real saffron bun day is December 13 when we celebrate Saint Lucia day.
I wish I could send you a sample of this delicious bun through my blog, but we’re not there with the technology yet.
If you haven’t noticed it yet. It’s Friday!
And in my head this old tune turned up.
Yes I grew up as a teenager in the 80’s and the show Fame was one of the few shows with music in Swedish television. Back in those days we only had two channels and no VHS recorder. So everytime the show was on I watched.
I thought it was amazing. It was rather fun watching this little cut from the serie now, but I doubt I would find it amazing if I watched the whole series today. But back then we hadn’t much to compare with.
Yes I know this is a cover, but I was too young to get that so this is my memory of the song. I smile when I hear this song. I hope The song can make you all smile too 🙂
This Friday I open the wp pub, where we all can meet in the comments field. Say what you want. Bring a song or two with you. If you cant paste the YouTube links to your songs in the comments, just name the songs and I find the link.
Despite all sorrows around me I feel very light in my heart today. That’s weird but very nice. When you believe in goodness in people I think you can feel joy no matter what. That’s amazing 🙂
Pub is open for everyone and we never close
