friday's feast

april 4 2008


Invent a new flower; give it a name and describe it.

It's the dehedriam.
It's a wonderful flower consisting of a whole bouquet of miniflowers in white, light blue and soft purple.
When the flower grows older it doesn't get droopy, but it slowly colours from soft pink to whine red. Then the leaves close and form the protection for the growing seeds.
In winter the firm stem, spreading in little branches holding the flowers, can carry a rather large load of snow, which has lead to the alias: the winter-pom-pom-flower.

The fragrance resembles the summer evenings joy of honeysuckle.


Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice.

Someone who jumps in my mind: Kiri te Kanawa.
She'll be visiting my country soon, to receive a prestigeous prize. I wish I could attend her last concert here.
But I can spend my money only once, and as you know, it goes to the children.


On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how clean do you keep your car?

Haha...We don't have a car.
I keep my bycicle as clean as the rain keeps it.

Main Course

How do you feel about poetry?

I don't like all poetry.
Often people use the concept of poetry as an excuse to launch a chaotic meaningless mess of words on internet or elsewhere, just like some people throw paint to a flat surface and call it a painting.

It's not so that I need to understand everything what is said, but it should trigger a special feeling.

I love the moments when I feel like writing poetry and the poem itself takes over and surprises me.


What was the last person/place/thing you took a picture of?

I remember! That was the snow at easter!
It was so amazing to have snow those days. The large amounts that swirled through the sky. It was awesome!

You can see it here.
