Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Revisiting tonight this blog of my late sister (in a late hour of the night, too), I find that my first post here, from August 16th, 2016, precedes directly my last one, published just a while ago. Both of them speak about the same —or almost—… Eight months and ten days ago, three days after… Continue reading Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – [A forcible republication of my first post here]

Angry, Surly and Revolted (but much in Love) – Ari’s Fashion (XII)

Dressing more or less this way, yes: oversized clothes (two sizes over), no underwear, a lot of makeup and nail polish, and no words for anybody. Heck you all -especially You-! Ari Fontrodona – (Very long ago… :/) – Surly and Revolted, but much in Love by ari-shej featuring blue denim jeans – Save

A Pictorial Tribute – Delvaux’s “Ari”, and a sort of family portrait

– – The first time I watched “Rosine” -an oil by the surrealist Belgian painter Paul Delvaux, from 1968- I said to myself “this tall, slim girl with the red hat and the fan looks very much like Ariel”. As a matter of fact, quite a few women in Delvaux’s paintings of the two last… Continue reading A Pictorial Tribute – Delvaux’s “Ari”, and a sort of family portrait

‘Sun Bath’ by Martin Lewis – as never seen before

As an appropriate follow-up of my recent post on Martin Lewis in my own blog: INVISIBLE FORMS, I show here what my sister Ari did with one the best engravings by this artist: Sun Bath; a work that she absolutely loved in every aspect… except for one of the two figures illustrated in it. So,… Continue reading ‘Sun Bath’ by Martin Lewis – as never seen before

Stately walking down a tree, like an elf

It’s not Lothlórien, of course, and these are not Mellyrn-trees, and the model is not Galadriel, but this is a photo without tricks or hoax; the girl elvishly walked down the trunk, barefoot, in part with the aid of a flexible branch that she was handling. When I shot her here, she was some 2.70… Continue reading Stately walking down a tree, like an elf

Beautiful legs and feet – like a heart

It is common to figure a symbolic heart with the fingers of both hands, but not as common to do it with the legs -and not as easy either, if they are very long and straight, like Ari’s. But here is a double try… (Notice that the feet are supposed to figure a smaller heart… Continue reading Beautiful legs and feet – like a heart

Ka merav pala tute – Moriré per tu – I will die for you

This is one of my favourite poems from “Dukh” (Pain), by Hedina Tahirović, 2007. Beyond its intrinsic literary merit, the book is also a milestone: the first collection of poems ever witten in Gurbet Rromani (Gurbetcko Rromano). Besides helping to divulgate it, my aim is to provide a translation into Catalan, which is my other… Continue reading Ka merav pala tute – Moriré per tu – I will die for you

Three Rromani poems on pain and sorrow (… what else?) (II)

This post continues a previous one with the same heading on my translations into Catalan of some Rromani poems from “Dukh” (Pain), by Hedina Tahirović Sijerčić. (For an introductory explanation and a concise biographical note about the author, please follow the link above.) Dukhalipe O dukhalipe vulisarilo mrni odji, odji tasavel pes. Sar te phurdav… Continue reading Three Rromani poems on pain and sorrow (… what else?) (II)
