What I have yet to decide is the name of this blog - shall it still be a Skerries? (I might talk of the Skerrie universe some time, or what it might have been, because I'm not sure it ever became what was intended.)
On another note, the blues andgreens of the movieThe Guardhave lingeredwithin. It has agood Almodóvar goes Twin Peaksfeel visually. It'sthe second filmthat I've watched in a short time that has doneWesterns ina new setting. I like.
Every cafe should have a cute monkey dog that keeps the customers warm and that listens to our ramblings without judgment or input. This little fella wrapped Emelie around its paw during our visit a cold autumnal evening.
Monkey face ansikte is so much more than a beginners English insult - it'sa track too. Possibly my favourite Cynthia track.
Today is a difficult morning. Petty practical things aside, it seems our tiny home might be under invasion. Our bodies have been marked.
"...it was like we was both back in older times and I was on
horseback goin' through the mountains of a night. It was cold and there was snow on the ground and
he rode past me and kept on goin'. Never said nothin' goin' by. He just
rode on past...
And he had his blanket wrapped around him and his head
down and when he rode past I seen he was carryin' fire in a horn the way
people used to do and I could see the horn from the light inside of it.
'Bout the color of the moon.
And in the dream I knew that he was goin'
on ahead and he was fixin' to make a fire somewhere out there in all
that dark and all that cold, and I knew that whenever I got there he
would be there."
These buildings and streets are long gone, and I wonder, is it sentimental to grieve the demolition of Klara? It happened before I was born. Is it the demolition that gives Klara its magic? What would it be without it, is impossible to say.
I prefer these winding streets to today's Sthlm city center.
And Klara is far more beautiful a name than City.
History in short (very short):
1933 Sthlm arranged for an international city planning competition. Legends like Alvar Aalto and Le Corbusiers competed. (Studying contemporary aesthetics I was told Le Corbusiers upon visiting Stockholm said that everything should be torn down except for the castle - that is a square box.) 1952 the demolition began, in the 70's the new city center was finished.
In Colombia Maria broke a blossoming twig off of a plant winding down the side of a house. It was a Dancing Lady, each flower the size of a woman's nail, and I fell in love a bit. In circles of precision it's called Oncidium Cheirophorum, but it's a name I think you should say quietly.
On another note - I hope it's no mood breaker - I google:d myself for the first time since marriage and name change.
1. Filmbasen 2. Vimeo 3. Facebook 4. Grafiskt forum 5. Hitta 6. Pinterest. It's okay.
Today is a Monday. I've dreamt eerie dreams of keeping ladybirds alive in crowded streets and woke up with a sense of their stench inside of me. Yesterday I watched Apflickorna - She Monkeys. Stepping out of the cinema a loud part of the audience seemed to be in unison that the movie was incomprehensible. The dialogue bad! What - was that the ending?! I didn't get anything! ( Ja ba va de slutet - ! Ja ja fatta ingenting! ) People were so upset I kept thinking wow, you had quite a cinematic experience right now, didn't you?
