Just an F-Blog #70. Weekends of June.

Okay, I will spare you the details of totally crazy time, work-wise. I will also spare you the details of thinking about leaving LJ, because it seems to spin in ever smaller circles. Same titles, same poses, same drama, same phrases, same problems, same patterns. I open some journals and I can pretty much guess what the post is going to be about. I mean, shouldn't we all finally move on a little bit with our lives?  I will also spare you the details of how I feel that this parallel cyber universe just doesn't offer that much thrill as it used to have. And I don't have only LJ in mind. I have pretty much moved away from all chats/sites/programs/etc and really focused on here and now, physically. I will see where it takes me. Maybe I just need a break. And a vacation.

And it's funny my "online thoughts" are like that, because my "offline life" is great. Or maybe that's the reason?

Any way, here's a photo blog about two weekend in June. One spent at Matjaž's summer house in Bela krajina, which is the most southern part of Slovenia, and a day spent at my parents. I guess that right now I am much better with images than with words.

I am giving you a selection, the rest is, of course, flickr'd.

Great pictures! Love the one where everyone is in the same room and "socializing" on all their gadgets to everyone in the world exempt who they are in the room with. And the pile of iPads, iPhones, smart phones etc. is a real sign of the times. The rest are just beautiful!

Sign of the times, indeed. But are these times really good? :)

It's like a pendulum, I suspect. Even The Other Place is quieting down as people get over the nonstop "OMG I found my best friend from high school who I now can't stand because she's a right-wing nutjob!" I've been using LiveJournal are more of an actual journal for a while now; thus, my updates are more sporadic. I truly do want to use it as a Life blog rather than a "Live" one; life, of course, gets in the way.

I personally hope you'll continue to post your lovely photos here, whether you say much or not. Whether you post at all or not, I am thankful for the opportunity to get to know you (every inch of you—swoon!) and don't think your disappearance here means a complete disconnect. (Still, you never did tell me what you thought of my zine... hint.)

I agree with ^^^^

Personally, I look forward to your posts - one of my absolute highlights is finding your words and pictures here on LJ. I've come to love Slovenia and hope to visit someday thanks to your posts. Don't give up on us completely! I still find the LJ community quite fascinating - so many interesting and fascinating people and places.

I, too, look forward to your posts. I find the less frequent some people's entries are, the more substance there is in them. That's a nice trade-off. I'll never get to Slovenia in this lifetime, but I feel as though I know a lot more about it than I used to, for which I thank you.
A couple of questions re: the latest gorgeous pictures. What's Ricky doing in the first group shot? What a goof! Also, at your parents, is that a fireplace built into the stonework, and who did the stonework ? Was it there when your parents acquired the place?

Ricky was probably smelling some flowers..... The air was rich with all the scents.

And, yes, it's a fireplace and my father did it all. In 1974 when they bought the land there was practically nothing there.

OMG love the New Life! :)

LOL I know what your posts are most likely going to be about too, but I still enjoy them.

Whatever you find in my journal (plants, silkworms, volunteering with gay teens, Sofia Pride, my endless dental treatment or yet another unsuccessful attempt to start a new job - if I even bother to write about the latter), at least it's not the unforgettable Madhouse anymore. :)

Madhouse was.... something better. :)

I really enjoyed the photos! I am sorry to hear that you are struggling with whether to share your life electronically or not.

My frustration is that I want "in person time" but seem to be struggling to find local groups of friends that can fit me in their (active) schedules.

I hope it was a relaxing respite from life, despite all the gadgets coming along. :)

Well, I guess I will share more of it, once I get back on LJ track. :)

And I guess a lot of "in person time" is also partly to blame I can't get around posting more.

And gadgets were.... just a little plus. LOL

hugs
