Or humans interference?
… once in a while
again and again
in the time of summer
the old table
the ultimate ending
endings includes a beginning
a new morning
new green leaves
what about the table?
it may seem as if we are framed
but go outside the frame
and you will get a new perspective
maybe even see – the whole
there are no frames
we just think so
and there is no death
I kind’o prefer this one ….
…over this wide boring one…
You kind’o get me, don’t you?
looking up, I can sometimes see blue sky
when it’s not all cloudy and raining
looking up, I can sometimes see birds flying
when they aren’t sitting in a tree, chattering about something
looking up, I can’t see where I put my feet but it doesn’t matter
since I have my head above the clouds anyway
and above the clouds the sky is always blue
It’s just an ordinary summer day,
with boringly endless sand
and the sun hidden in southwest.
The water seems to be mostly grayish.
Dark clouds are heaping up from the horizon,
and there’s a chill stroking down your spine.
Nothing seems to be what it really is.
And now, you may choose the most suitable explanation…
Jubilant and thankful! For the summer, the richness of the nature, the beauty. Life. Creativity. Fantasy. Love. Being thankful never stops!
Maybe even for catching a cold? A real cold for once with all normal ingrediences! Though it isn’t particularly fun to spend days in bed instead of on the bike or on the patio, reading or writing. But it will pass!
Sunday afternoon when this cold begun, I got a very distinct feeling this cold was actually very good for me. That it was helping my body to set things right. Help it heal further, both psychologically and physically. Living with stress for years and years isn’t good at all, and I’m realizing more and more that things happens when the stress is gone! A lot of things are happening in the body because of the release!
There are hours and days with total peace and happiness, feeling relaxed and enjoying life. But also hours and days with depressive symptoms, crying, fatigue, anger, despair. And that sore throat/bronchitis thing for more than a month. The ischial pain down the leg that is still haunting me. And days in between not feeling good at all. And now this cold. The whole thing is surprising, fantastic, awful, wonderful…
What makes me going, even through the bad days, is that I know I’m going through a huge change. And during a change – or a healing process of any kind – one does feel worse before it’s settling down and one starts to feel better more permanently. So – actually – I’m getting better!
AND! This cold now shows that my immunesystem is now functioning as it’s supposed to do. It’s reacting normally! This is the proper way to handle a virus infction! With fever and all! And hopefully for no more than a week or so.
The pictures are from my “bikewalk” this Sunday, before the cold.
I went back to the rapeseed field. Just had to see if it was in full bloom. Not quite it was, but almost! And the summer-ish fragrance was there.
But should I get home in time before the rain started pouring down and making me soaking wet? After lunch the clouds had been building up, and the wind was increasing so at first I didn’t know if I could bike to the field at all. But I wanted to, so I dared myself.
Yes, I did! I managed to bike against the wind, and I did get home again in time. Actually! It didn’t rain at all here, but I saw the shadowy curtains on distans while still on the bike on my way home.
And the weather changed! It got colder and overall more windy after this. So… now it’s more like it should be in May! Spring! Not like in the hottest time of summer.
That’s today, I mean, May 10th, but five years ago.
It was a mere coincidence! If there is such a thing…
I browsed my photos a couple of days ago and picked some that could do well to “Earth”. And now when I had edited this one, considered myself to be satisfied with the outcome, and drag it into WP – that’s the moment I realized todays date is May 10th. Just like the day I took this photo 2011.
What I mean by this chit-chat? Well! Nothing really. At least I don’t think so. It was, and is, a lovely day. But I haven’t been out in the woods and seen any anemones this year. Yet. So much to do, so little time…
One of the most summer-ish fragrances – for me – is when the rapeseed fields are in full bloom. And in just a couple of days, maybe already tomorrow thanks to the warm, sunny weather, this field will be all intense yellow.
The fragrance! Spicy, thick, tender, wonderfully overwhelming…
I’ll keep my eyes – and nose – on this field for some time now. Unfortunately it won’t remain in full bloom for long – so better use every available day now to bike there, and just enjoy.
… Elsinore Castle?
Actually! The real name is Kronborg, a castle and stronghold in the town of Helsingør, Denmark. It was William Shakespeare who immortalized it as Elsinore in his play Hamlet.
It was built in the 1420th and has now been added to UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites list (2000)
“The castle is situated on the extreme northeastern tip of the island of Zealand at the narrowest point of the Øresund, the sound between Denmark and Sweden. In this part, the sound is only 4 km wide, hence the strategic importance of maintaining a coastal fortification at this location commanding one of the few outlets of the Baltic Sea” (Wikipedia) (I was too lazy to write this in my own words)
The picture was taken some years ago from one of the huge ferries that crosses the sound. And of-course I, before publishing it here, had to let it have a “pick-me-up” in my favorite editing program, Pixlr.
Me like having fun!!!!
Apropos Denmark and Helsingør, I would like to have a small chat with my Swedish friends here. Hope you don’t mind. (Not a secret, just switching to my native language for a sec.)
Min svenska blogg har fått liv igen, och det tycks som att jag faktiskt postar inlägg någorlunda regelbundet igen. Utan att det känns som att jag inte har några idéer; det känns inte tungt; och det är helt utan mögel i badrummet! 😉
Det vore roligt om ni vill komma och göra min trogne läsare där sällskap. Jag har inte nån exakt plan för vad som kommer att publiceras, men lite mer personligt verkar det bli – lite “nära vardagen”, nära där jag bor, och nära det jag gör.
Så även om jag inte direkt kräker ur mig noveller (ännu – inte i nån högre grad i alla fall), har jag åtminstone så smått börjat skriva igen. Vilket är fantastiskt!!!! Men just nu är det inte frågan om VAD jag skriver, utan ATT!
Bland annat kommer jag att berätta om Fjäderpennan… och så blir det en del bilder… och… säkerligen en del om mat… och… tja, det blir det det blir!
Så jag hoppas verkligen få möta er på “Min ostyriga penna”, vilket jag även misstänker kommer att peppa mig i mitt skrivande. Förutom att det vore väldigt roligt!
Kan man säga att jag är på väg hem?
