Almost Easter

Tomorrow it’s Easter. So the spring is nearer than when we last met. Finally.

- As you can see, it’s spring already. The long awaited and almost forgotten. 

- You wish. 

Tech Beauty

February 27th 2018 by araukara

Our technical environment is expanding all the time. Luckily beauty can be found there too. 

We have a challenge of both seeing and creating beauty. Let's face it. 

Tulip

Saw a tulip in the snow
she smiled and told me
to get my coat
or I would freeze
for the winter
was not over yet. 
 

Publicity

January 5th 2018 by runekani

Write your testimony
in obsolete language
with non-excisting letters

write it on pine bark
with lukewarm water
using a bucket as a pen

shout it out while diving
on a deserted coast
near a village long ago forgotten

whisper it to everyone's ear
when everyone's deaf and dead
and buried in the dust of time.

Then turn around
and we'll shake hands
and stare each other in the eye.

Fruit Glyphs

December 13th 2017 by runekani

Peculiar how nature writes ancient glyphs and hides them for an open minded to find. 

 

Boat Asleep

November 21st 2017 by avokado

The winter could be time for rest. We could gather our strength like boats sleeping by the shore line. Later the time will come for being active. But not today. 

Old Beauty

September 4th 2017 by runekani

So often beauty is found in something old and ragged. And in living and peculiar.

We are all living and peculiar. And soon we will be old and ragged.

Ecological

Hey, let's all be biodegradable. And we are! How fun is that?

Sleep

June 28th 2017 by runekani

There might be plans to be discussed or opportunities to be siezed, but if you are too tired, nothing works. Creativity fails, brain slips into standby mode and routines fill up the sky. 

lack of sleep means lack of creativity

When tired enough even sleep gets worse. Overdriven thoughts are harder to calm and dreams have darker shades in them.

Propably the core of the problem is not appreciating the gift of ...

Colours

June 14th 2017 by avokado

Mainly what we strive for is colour. Pleasant, comforting or vitalising. 

 Sometimes we find it, sometimes not. 

Dreams

June 13th 2017 by avokado

Recently I've mainly been interested in sleeping. It's the easiest way to travel, to get away, to disappear for a while. For some reason the waking world has lost quite a bit of it's glamour. Hopefully temporarily.

just watching the ducks

The life around has slowed down. It's like being forgotten in a park. I'm watching the ducks and the ripples on the pond, but there's no other movement. 

How to make art of that? ...

Borrowed

June 1st 2017 by runekani

We are taught to be unique and thoroughly individual. But what do we do? At the best we combine or rephrase what we've seen and heard. Sometimes even reconstruct. But an original idea? That's seldom heard of.

borrowing borrowed ideas

Borrowing borrowed ideas, that's what we mainly do. Is that ok?

Illusion

May 30th 2017 by runekani

The material world around us consists of tiny particles far away from each other, and empty space in between. And those particles are made of even smaller particles, which in turn are made of nothing.

the world around seems ridiculous 

So teaches us physics.

The social world around us is made of conventions, habits and significances based on themselves. The mental world is mostly unknown.

Doesn't sound ...

Solar Power

May 28th 2017 by avokado

I have a dream about a noiseless house. The ventilation would be powered by gravity, and electricity would be produced by solar power. The house would be near the sea where tidal range is high. And I would have a little garden there. 

I think I run on solar power myself. In the months of lousy weather I loose power and gain inner sadness. Now it takes time to recharge.
