|Ruzinov summer 2016|
I started to think this week, about where is the oldest tree in Bratislava. I know it's not in my neighbourhood. According to a friend who is a botanist and was born in Bratislava it is probably in Sad Janka Krala or the cemetery at Kozia Brana or possibly Horsky Park.

The axis of the Earth’s rotation is not perpendicular to the plain of the Earth’s orbit round the sun. It is tilted at about 23.5 degrees.The tilt means that the northern and southern hemispheres are angled towards the sun for part of the year, and away from the sun for another part of the year. This is why we have seasons.

Ideas can fall into your head sometimes as lines of words and flashes of imagery that are seldom said or seen.
Life moves along regardless of if you join in and take off with it, or try your best to slow it down in an attempt to understand.
Love hits you unexpectedly and its power is overwhelming, it touches your existence with such delicate fingers as it finds all your strengths and weaknesses.
Inspiration is a flower that if you are really lucky blooms for you once in a lifetime.

A certain kind of song saddens and beautifies life with its courage and truth and longing.
Just as we are more than the sum of our years, some songs are much more than melody and words.
And they are like a trigger for memory to seduce us with.

Reading the book “Dylan on Dylan” today I came across an interview Bob made with Sam Shepard called “the short life of trouble” for esquire magazine. In the interview Bob talks about his influences among them Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and James Dean and he also talks about the near fatal motorcycle accident he had in Woodstock in 1966.
