Blur.

 
Cold, cold heart, originally uploaded by Tomaz Celestina.


My days are turning into a severe blur. I have to prepare a 60 minute radio broadcast with a working title "Slovene politics in 2009", meaning I need to listen through tons of footage and browse through tons oaf articles and newspapers. Well, I have to finish it till Thursday, so at least I know it will be done by then. Plus banks and skiing and Egypt and trying to sort it all out before we leave and... winter we had during the weekend is definitely gone. Temperatures have leaped above freezing and cold rain is pouring. Snow is slowly disappearing and... well, ok, I'll stop whining. A few more days...

And I still haven't had the time to start flickring properly, I mean going through your photostreams, commenting, favouriting and all which seems to be thing in Flickr. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by those first few days, not least because quite a number of people from my f-list also use Flickr. Anyway, the picture I am posting today is a few years old, taken on a lovely mountain just outside Ljubljana. The story connected to it isn't such a pleasant one. Igor's company has a pretty, pretty mountain hut on there and Iggy and I wanted to spend the weekend there. We got there in a total snow blizzard, it was cold as hell and the chair-lift wasn't working so we climbed up the darned mountain for nearly two hours, just  to realise that someone had misplaced the keys. We got a set that could open a nice apartment down at the coast. So, back we went, with heavy backpacks and all. :))))

And picture is a part of Flickr set, called Country, containing various shots from Slovenia. And now back to Slovenia in 2009 and, later on, when I come home sometimes in the evening, I'll take care of my inbox and all notifications that started piling there. Again.

Take care of yourself, T.

I love that mountaintop shot, in spite of the crazy story behind it. It tells a tale of intense cold and wind...

You'd love it here, Cor. And once in Europe it's just a tiny jump to come to Slovenia. :)

Sounds like you have a lot on your plate coming up so stay sane! Also, I am really enjoying your photos on flickr, even if you believe you have not gotten as involved there. I am not one of those who goes on every day to update photos or to browse through others, but I may if you keep putting your gorgeous work there...

Thanks, E! :) Yes, a lot is piled up, but I think I will deal with it all the way I should.

Yes, Flickr is still new. I still need to get used to it all. And, yes, I surely will post more stuff there soon.

Gosh that picture just looks frigid...and the thought of preparing that 60-min radio broadcast of Slovene politics sends the chill right down into me lol

*Sends many warm hugs*

And frigid it was. :) Well, I like radio stuff a lot, it was just a bit too much during the past few days. :)

That photo looks surreal. :)

Sorry to hear about the crazy weekend story... it would set almost anybody else bitching and moaning, and you are posting smileys. :)

PS: RIB
So you have to write your own copy? I thought newsmodels just read off the teleprompter. In your case: a copy a professional writer hands you? LOL

*ducks* :-.D

I so know what you are talking about. I was once lost in a fog there for 6 hours. And I know how it is walking there in a snow. I guess you were pretty pissed ... but still it is really one of the nicest place on the planet. I'm quite sad that Telekom sold the cottage there and ended our traditional visits.
