Summer time



Time for me to slow down .
I have books to read ,
waves to dive into ,
family and friends to visit ,
 long days to enjoy .
So I'll come here on blogs only from time to time .
Maybe once a week,
maybe more , maybe less .
I don't know yet .
 
I wish you a long , blissful
 and beautiful summer !
Bye !

AVE !

HELLO !
 


Sometimes ,
modern art has a special meaning .
 

 
 
It becomes a link between past and future ,
between dream and reality .
 
This Etruscan Man seems to be wondering
about a way to cross the Mirror .
A mirror , or time ?...

Wednesday Doorway

 
The Church SANTA MARIA MADDALENA
was built during the XVIIth century .

 
The painting showing Maria Maddalena was added in 1742 .

 
 In 1866 and 1906 ,
last sculptures  were added
around the door .
 



The Church is standing on the small
Piazza Del Popolo .
You're walking in narrow streets ,
 and suddenly ,
it's there ,
just round the corner ..
like a good surprise !

Faraway waves


Dreaming to sail
or
sailing to dream ..
 
I made both  .
Never could choose .
Life did for me ..

Books Festival

 
While I'm writing ,
a storm arrived over the city ,
and I'm glad to have visited the festival this morning !

 
A lot of writers were there ,
a crowd of visitors and tourists ..

 
.. But my favorite corner remains the one
where to find old books !

Natural paintings

 
I can easily imagine a Big Paintbrush ,
 somewhere up there ..

 
painting lines ,
 spots ,
and playing with colors ..

Walk !

 
To find your way ,
 will you look down ,
and follow cobblestones ?..
 
 
 
..or look up ,
and follow small pieces of sky ?..
 
 
..if , and only if ,
 you're somewhere where you can see it ..
 
 
 
Or maybe , you'll just keep walking ,
following walls and steps ..

 
.. until you'll reach a place
that will be like a breath ..?

Wednesday Doorway(s)

 
Bordighera has two faces :
A modern side along the sea ,
 and an old part ,
nested inside of old walls .
 
 

Many doors will allow you
to enter into that part of the city .

 
Some are simple ,
like holes in walls ..

 
.. Some are decorated ,
maybe once more important .

 
All of them will lead you into an other world ,
made of long history ,
of narrow Streets ,
 of pebbles under your feet ,
of rich silences ..
 
 
Will you follow me into this
aged but beautiful
beating  heart ?

Italian panorama

 
It's  9 o'clock in the morning .
Temperature already reaches 29 ° .

 
The city is lying under your feet .
Like a Lady thinking it's too early to wake up .
 
 
 
Blue sky and blue sea match perfectly .

 
The skyline seems endless .


Far away  westward  ,
you can guess France , Monaco , Menton ..



Welcome to Italy !
Welcome to Bordighera !

Don't ask !

 
It's Modern Art ,
I won't pretend to have keys ...

 
The ... hmmm .. "artist"  is Ben .

 
On the Mirror :
"Pebbles have no ego "
 
(Me thinking : artists have for two )
 
On the pushchair :
"I have nothing to say "
 
(Me thinking : I agree on that point.
So maybe you should  keep staying mute )

 
Well , anyway ,
this is my contribution to WEEK-END REFLECTIONS ,
