Last year I spent almost two months in Slovenia, and July was one of them. Here it is in twenty images for my Calendar 2020.
Surprisingly, I spent the entire July in Ljubljana, with only one day-trip to Piran. One night I went to the centre for a protest poetry reading, one night to the street concert by Zajtrk with amore, who came from Italy to join me at the end of the month, and bestia. There were two family birthdays and some meals and chats with friends. I was having regular electro-ultra sound-laser sessions for my calcinated feet, and that was about it.
I was walking bestia around my hood, remembering how I lost the lovely green grandma-knit cardigan in some bushes, my daily 6-minute walk to primary school, my after-school basketball with guys and a rare girl.
When I went to buy ingredients for the cake I made for my sister’s birthday, bestia untied himself and followed me into the supermarket where a cheerful employee brought him to me on the leash and I couldn’t believe my eyes. Apparently a motorcycle starting up near him spooked him so much that he untangled himself and ran into the shop after me. Lucky me!
Here is some of all that in twenty photos for my calendar series. The duo Zajtrk (meaning “Breakfast”) I introduced on my blog when I translated their best song “I’ll make paradise“. This was my first post-pandemic concert and it was beautiful. I love their energy! Guess who sang along the loudest. Here is the song again as the soundtrack for this post.
I wish you culture, art, quality of living, good air, good earth, no solar storms, family. Life.
