The road taken

A little bit too hasty, perhaps?

Good!

The task on for Weekly Photo Challenge this week was a bit tricky. A good match!
Lot’s of things goes very well together, but my mind went blank.

Then I cooked. Just plain spaghetti with tomato sauce. Simple enough! But if that doesn’t go well together – what does?

The sauce is made of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tomatoes and spices.

Red chilipaste, some broth, oregano, salt, lemonpeppar… Just boil, mix together, spice it enogh to your own taste. I also added som fresh spinach.

Then enjoy with spaghetti. In my case, glutenfree.

It’s 8 PM and all is well

That is! The switch from domain-blog to a not-domain-blog seems to have gone fine. At least as I can see it from here.

Everything is still in place, and the only thing I don’t know for sure or can see, is if you still can reach me. There’s still the same amount of followers so I hope so. Now when I intend to start take photos again. And add here… in this blog…

Don’t know why I worried, but I didn’t know for sure if…

I have made up my mind

I will remove ordibild.com. The domain, that is. Not the blog itself. So if everything goes the way I want, tomorrow the name of the blog is www.ordibild.wordpress.com (instead of http://www.ordibild.com.) So if you’ve lost me you can find me there.

rainday9aIf everything goes totally wrong, I’ll still be at

So I hope for the best, that everything will still be here tomorrow. All posts, images, pages – you! If the theme changes – that doesn’t matter. I can easily choose any theme I like. I’ll do this sometime today, probably in the evening. I have some tasks I will attend to during daytime.

rainday8aFirst, though, I’ll download an export-file if I loose any content in the process. I think – I hope – the only thing that will change is the name.  But I won’t know for sure until all is done. I guess, if I have to use the export-file to import the contents back, the featured images wont be featured any longer, but I can live with that. I think.

Why am I a bit nervous? After all, if it’s lost. it’s lost! It’s not the end of the world! Is it? No, it isn’t. I know that! But still!

rainday1aI wish WP would provide sufficient informtion about things, about what actually happens when you do this or do that. But no.

As very common, manuals are written by those who know, to adress others who also already know and also understand the things that aren’t written.

But thanks Godess this isn’t Google!


And the images are without any meaning at all…
To the text-content…

There is something on my mind

For four years now, I’ve had this Domain registration on this blog together with a privacy protection. In all 26 USD/year. I don’t want to have that any longer, I don’t want to pay anything at all to WP any longer. Not that 25 USD is the end of the world, but there are other things I rather would spend it on.

The main reason though, that I want to remove this domain upgrade, is that I think WP due to its “enhancements” has made blogging more irritating and time consuming. It’s not easier to move around, the “improved editor” is hopeless, and the app is… okay practical to use for scrolling through the reader…

I shouldn’t complain to much perhaps. Despite the “enhancements” WP still might be the best blogg-host, compared to other options – not  that I know of every option there is. (And as long as I won’t encounter wordpress.org) But I don’t want to pay for this upgrade any longer. It isn’t worth it! The only noticable and visible change is the name. With the domain this blogs name is: http://www.ordibild.com. Without it’s called http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com. So!!!!!!??????

And the privacy protection part? I can’t notice any difference from my other blogs! Maybe due to a strong password which I change now and then, and that the mailadress I have here, only is connected to WP and never use anywhere else?

But how do I do to get rid of it?

img_2386

I must say! It’s D.I.F.F.I.C.U.L.T to find information. First of all to find any information, second to find a clear concise information about this particular question. After hours of searching, the only thing I found was that I could remove ordibild.com, but nothing says if I still will have http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com? I think so, but can I be sure? Will I still have my posts and my images? Will I still have YOU – my wonderful skillful followers? Or will everything be removed???? All of it????

I have been pondering, should I instead manually delete Words&Pics the ordinary way? Just poofff bang bye and gone forever the entire blog? And instead focus on my other blog where I write more? The blog A new beginning? (Haven’t written much lately, moved to another city, you know, will be back on track)
Or should I just remove “ordibild.com the domain” and hope for the best! Taking a chance all the content still will be there and that none of you will lose me, and therefore I lose you.

Let me have a day or two to reflect on this a bit more. Somehow I’ll remove the domain. And I hope, if lost, we all can find each other again. There are ways!
I’ll be – if possible – at http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com or – if the other occurs – at A new beginning where I in that case will post both images as well as written some-things.

And after all – I’ve just started A New Life! In my original hometown! I’ve already reconnected to some of my old friends AND have met new ones! In less then three weeks. Sometimes it feels funny, awkward, to change what eleven years have done to me, into not the old me, but into a new me. So now I’m picking myself up, dusting myself off, getting myself together, leaving the bad things behind, embrace the learnt lessons-  and start my life again, new and refreshed. In a much better place,

That, I think, is a good match. After all that has happened and to all that now will happen. 😀

In my solitude…

… when the helpers are gone and I’m all alone in my new apartment.
Taking it slow with some bottled water, freshly brewed coffee and
home-made chocolate mousse.

The purpose is…

… to repurpose. But while remaining in the land of Nothingness & In-between, I could reuse a photo and make it into something else. Still an image though…

Words of Wisdom

I reblogged this from my other blog – A New Beginning –  where I write about This & That. More words than images over there! You’re very welcome to visit! 😀 ❤ 😀

A new beginning

I’m on Facebook mainly to find wise words and encouragements, (the rest is free to go somewhere the sun doesn’t shine.) Today I found this, published by Truth Teller.
https://www.facebook.com/TruthTeller29/?hc_ref=NEWSFEED&fref=nf

Actually! I heard recently on my meditation/discussion-group, that the intelligence quote is descending throughout the world. Particularly in the western hemisphere and among youngsters. I have no numbers or statistics on this, but generally speaking I think it’s true. Just watch how many who think Facebook  and Twitter always delivers facts, always are true, and how many who are connected to these kinds of media lots and lots of hours! Who live through Internet

It also seems to be more and more kids that quit school without even basic knowledge in reading, writing and maths. And many – way too many – won’t even try to think for themselves. Don’t they want to learn something for themeselves? Do they only want to get what they need, served on a…

Calmness & Gracefulness

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

It isn’t the first time I realize that I prefer warm colors over cold, light over darkness, even though I also want contrast both in light/dark and warm/cold. I realized now when I added the images, that three of them very much resemble each other. I guess that’s a part of my personal style. As for the meditative and spiritual… thing.

I’m happy that I seem to have started to play with images again, despite the fact I don’t presently take any new photos. So this one I’ve found in my foto-library from april 2008. It’s taken in Borås which I visited at that time. (Once upon a time I was born there…)
The staty is situated in the river Viskan, (river?!?!?), and the wall behind is the old Cinema-building, Röda Kvarn. (Red Mill; Moulin Rouge. 😉 ) I haven’t the faintest idea what it is used for nowadays. In 2008 it wasn’t used as cinema any longer, but I’ve forgotten what was in there instead. Some kind of theater?

The original

The original photo

So this is the original photo. Not a particularly good one technically speaking. I realized after a while, that that camera was pretty – LOUSY! Even my not-so-advanced cell phone at that time (not an iPhone) took better photos. My iPhone 5 now is excellent compared to that old HP. And I’m more and more longing for a real camera. … though I haven’t decided yet which camera I want. And don’t have that kind of money now. Need some stuff for my new apartment first.

The only thing I did with this before playing around with filters, was to crop it a little bit and slightly enhanced light, contrast and sharpened it with an easy hand

And here is a photo of the Cinema building “en face”.
(In 1968 when I moved away from this city, there were no such huge buildings. Time flies and other worlds are born… )

All by myself

I still write in english, once in a while, not only in swedish…

Featured Image -- 20940

A new beginning

No, it’s not difficult at all, to live in the land of Nothingness. Partly, of course, because I know it won’t last forever.

But don’t think that Being Alone Doing Nothing, is literally Being Alone Doing Nothing all the time. I still shop for food, cook, eat, have contact with people. I just don’t engage myself in any must-do-ish or have-to-do-ish tasks. In almost no tasks at all, actually. Not been writing much, done next to nil blogging, not been taking any photos. Haven’t made my bed for ages…

the alchemist One of the few I’ve read lately. Have read before a couple of times – and I still like it.

I have been reading some, but not the philosophy literature I intended to read. Too much engagement, I realized. For now. And those books I have read, have taken me long time to read.
I have been watching quit a lot of movies…

Living space

In the middle of everything.

Just wondering… is this house still there? Nine years have gone since I visited this area. What does it look like in the summer? When the trees and bushes are green, how much of the house can you see from the road? And the people who live there? Do they only live there during the summer, or all year around? Questions arise in my mind, I won’t get any other answers than my imagination gives me.

It seems to be nostalgically romantic, doesn’t it?

Still lying around

As it happens… I also write! And in english. Welcome!

A new beginning

It’s quite an odd feeling, to be in this nothingness just waiting for time to pass. It’s not bad! On the contrary, I have my suspicions it’s rather good! You learn to just “be”, to stay in the Now. If you can’t spend time alone with yourself, then you might be…  quite frustrated. But I can, I like it, I need it! But not every day endlessly.

I do some things, of course! I shop for food, cook, eat, meet friends once in a while. And I spent one whole afternoon after New Year with one of my daughters. She drow 80 kilometers to meet me. And we just kept on talking and talking while walking and window-shopping and having coffee together. It was wonderful!

Yesterday my friend Mac helped with throw away some garbage that couldn’t fit in the ordinary garbage bin. A couple of outdoors wooden chairs that almost…

A New Path

Am I on a new path?
I would say so. New place in life – recently retired. And soon, a new place to live in… on… at… whatever…
A new city to live in, though it’s actually old and well-known to me.

I throw away things. Give away some. I clean up among photos and files on the computer. Getting rid of the old, letting the new come in.

Soon there will be a new year. 2017. Every New Years Day is seen as a chance for letting go of the old, and letting in the new. Promises are given and there is hope. At least for a while.

30-maj-2009-30Do I have any promises for the new year! No. But I have a sincere intention to write more. To finish those novels and short stories that are worth finishing. And to write new stuff. I intend to write more on the blogs as well. At least for the time being. Then, what’s supposed to happen – will happen. Just wait and see.

Now I have this blog with mostly images. I also have the blog where I write in swedish, and less than a week ago I started new blog, where I’ll write – and write in English. Havn’t figured out yet if I should have a specific theme like food och something, but I guess I would handcuff myself if I decided to focus only on one topic. That wouldn´t be me then! So I see it as a kind of diary, a place for me to ventilate thoughts and events in a somewhat personal way – not being personal, though!

And Please! Consider yourself very, very welcome!

The new one in English: A new beginning
