Memories

Strasbourg, a november night 2017.

This time of year always remember me of a never finished song from long ago:

When ‘No’ isn’t an answer

The Ceres Well in the danish city of Aarhus.
Commonly known as “The Pigs Well”.
Donated to Aarhus in 1941 by Ceres which was the local brewery.
The sculpture was created by Mogens Bøggild.
Except from winter so it’s a fountain – and very well visited in the middle of the city.

Ever since I was quite small I have been crazy about this sculpture.and actually still is.
Every time when we visited Aarhus, so my mother was towed along to these piglets.
One time when I was about 3 years old, my mother met a friend there.
While ‘the girls’ talked, so I took the opportunity to bathe in the fountain.
I was told that it was forbidden territory for small naughty boys.

The worth visiting Thursday’s Special themes created by Paula
The inspiring theme this week “Forbidding

Inspiration the hard way

Q 38

We always talk much about inspiration, hopefully we will continue this way.
But perhaps often we get the perception that inspiration is a path
where we meet beautiful maidens and handsome guys which even get Adonis to fade.
Where roses are hot red, honey are sweet and the kisses are fabulous.

Weekly photo challenge, 3th version of the theme “Inspiration“.

But in fact inspration can be a matter of life and death both direct and indirect.

Q 35

This stout american guy, 91 years old, at a green northwesterly french lawn inspires me.
He’s come back to remind his first visit to this place – exactly 70 years ago.

Times changes, sometimes even for something better,
but still we have to remember taking care of each other.

Not to be wise in hindsight, but to learn from the history.

Q 37

Guess I been forgotten now

Old photo from Airport Enrico Forlanini very close to the italian city of Milan.

Daily prompt “Don’t you forget about me” – alternative version of the theme.

Traffic centre as ports, railway stations and not least airports has always attracted me
because I have always loved to travel, so they are as magnetic as tempting sweet shops.
An airport I miss is “Airport Enrico Forlanini” also called Linate Airport of Milan.
It isn’t closed but most of the international flights, now done from Milan-Malpensa Airport.

Have an old school friend who was “abducted” by a beautiful local girl from this area
when I visited them in the 1980s and early 90s – so landende the ‘drake’ at this airport.
Later was a structural change so Milan Malpensa Airport got the leading foreign traffic.

Remember clearly my visits at Airport Enrico Forlanini as memorable.
Many people have a doppelganger, one which unknown believe is you when they see you.
At that time every time I was in this airport – so I got an accidental storming attention
because many thought here was Alan Sorrenti, a very popular Italian singer
kiss on the cheek from a lot of sweet Italian girls, once also had a big hug of a female cop.
Few were surprised about my blue-green eyes, they thought they were brown.

A non scary experience if I must be honest – but funny and charming.

Direct train from the past

Five Photos, Five Stories (IV)

Cité du Train, a french railway museum in the city of Mulhouse
with several rail station environments which creates nostalgic moods.

The past is never where you think you left it
*Katherine Anne Porter – american journalist, essayist, author and political activis*

Probably so we remember the past as we want to remember it.
like forget all the bad things and remember only all the good things
or forget all the good things and remember only all the bad things.?

The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
1) Post a photo (or more) each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo.
It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetryor nothing more than a short paragraph.
It’s entirely up to you.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge.
The nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation.
This is supposed to be al fun and it isn’t at all a command performance.
Challenged by the happy and very talented girl behind the blog “Soul’n Spirit

The wonderful swedish blogger “Kerlund” is an inspring creative photographer
eye for the surroundings, it would be interesting to hear the stories behind her photos.
So hopefully she will be tempted to catch this line and create her version of this free style.?

Portrait of joyful darkness

Years ago I spent a period of time in this city because of education, a wonderful city
for a awhile since I had returned to visit a good old friend at the local hospital.
We spent the time looking out the window from the 12 floor and talk about old memories.
Fortunately, as the dusk was lowered over the city of Viborg
some would jokingly say that the stories deserved this light
Good memories emerge from the darkness when we see the light.

Inspired from the always worth visiting Paula’s Thursday’s Special this week *theme*: “Portrait
