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.

We are tilted

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 Life Love Inspiration

                                                     Athens         2016

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.

certain songs

                                                   Bratislava       2004

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.

after a rain storm

I love the smell after a rain storm
they way the birds sing together
and how the trees stand perfectly still
drenched in water and refreshed

into the sun

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.

two words

The ancient Greeks had two words for time.
1) Chronos: chronological, sequential or linear time.
2) Kairos: time revealed in its depth dimension.

for my brother

                                                                                       Bratislava           2016

We live with a sense of belonging somewhere, even when alone and far away, this sense of belonging lets us know without any real accuracy, direction or distance, not where that somewhere is, but that it exists.

People were not that interested in the ruins of this 5th century BC citadel, it seemed that they had walked to the top of this hill overlooking Athens to add to their growing archive of selfies
