Elements of nature ~ Het voorjaar en de zomer, voor mij de meest inspirerende tijd van het jaar. Stedentrips, avondwandelingen, groen, natuur, architectuur, de zon en het schouwspel van schaduw. Wat is jouw favoriete tijd van het jaar?
I want you to know
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
Carrying a small white wedding album filled with examples of his Subway work, on requesting to take someone’s picture, he would often bring this out to convince the subject of his intentions. Other times, the moment would be too perfect and Davidson would photograph without permission, explaining himself after the image was safely imprinted on his film.
Valetta Views, Malta.
Malta boasts an abundance of natural attractions, from sandy beaches with crystal-clear waters to interesting grottos with picture-perfect formations. Architecture buffs can enjoy the narrow, photogenic streets of either the old or the new capital city, whilst fans of religious edifices can visit the numerous, impressive churches scattered all around Malta. Historians can explore exciting artifacts from the Neolithic Age, while foodies can delve into diverse culinary treats with flavors from around the world.
And then there is Valetta. And Valetta is awesome.
