Thursday Thirteen #3

13 dots about me:

OK since I’m not at home and my internet access is very limited until after Christmas (7th Jan) when I’ll be back I have to use for this week T13 something I wrote long time ago for my BC profile *blush*.
So this week more-less will be copy/paste action. Sorry.

So here is piece of who I am in 13 dots:

1. There are three rivers in my life. I was born and spend my childhood on one and now I live on the other two. Each of them has died few times and was born again. Now I'm waiting their latest resurrection.

2. I love movement; rivers and rain, storms and wind.

3. One of my favorite writers said:" The inner side of the wind is the one which stays dry while the wind is blowing throughout the rain". I'm always trying to feel it.

4. I don't like symmetry especially in space around me but I do like balance in everything. That's why I started to learn language in which the weight of the book is moving from my left hand to the right one during the reading.

5. I like left side more than right.

6. Thursday is my day.

7. I love plums and lilies.

8. I can't stand superficiality; my huge preoccupation is to avoid this global transformation into supermarket zombies capable only to buy.

9. I say what I mean and expect the same from others.

10. Wine is my drink and bitter is my flavor.

11. I can't make music or paintings but I do know to enjoy in them with all my soul. I love Van Gogh but also Jackson Pollock; I love Rachmaninoff but also little younger artists such as REM, ex Talking Heads, PJ Harvey, RHCP...etc.

12. The most perfect piece of something ever made by one man is Michelangelo's Pieta (1499; Marble, St.Peter's, Vatican); it is on the very final frontier of perfection, one step behind that frontier could be only God himself.

13. I love people. My greatest achievement is that, in spite life I've succeed to not learn to hate.

I saw that Pieta! It was wonderful!

Lotus Reads said...

Wow, Milan, what a cool Thursday Thirteen, it's so nice getting to know you!

Like you, I love movement - mountains are not for me! :)

Interesting observation that you prefer the left side over the right, is that because you're left-handed? Or is that too simple an explanation? :)

St. Peter's is on my list of places to see before I're lucky to live in Europe, access to these wonderful works of art is so much easier.

Great post, I have enjoyed reading it!

Angela Oh that's great!!! I wasn't that lucky but I'll go someday, I don't have any doubts!
So lotus St. Peter's is one of places I'm dreaming to visit too.
And no I'm not left-handed, I just love left side more than right... don't have some strong explanation, maybe because of heart or politics or simply I'm finding right side boring ... I'm always pick left paper with exam questions or whenever I have to chose between two sides ... that's how I don't have big dilemmas :)

Celfyddydau said...

That is a very interesting list. I'm like number 11

Unknown said...

Cool list.

My 13 are up too.

Frances D said...

Beautiful list.
It's almost like a poem.
Thanks for sharing.
Take care,

Hi, darling!! Happy TT!! And Merry Christmas, if I don't talk to you before then. Love the rivers bit; Pittsburgh is a city that sits on three rivers.

No wonder we get along so well...

bookish lore said...

That was just wonderful, you've made my day! It's definitely an excellent post.

Should you need help with Spanish I'll be happy to help you (or confuse your rather. It is my native tongue, but I'm no expert :)

Oh, and my favourite dot is # 13!
