halfway

The bridge will only take you halfway there, to those mysterious lands you long to see. Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair, and moonlit woods where unicorns run free. So come and walk awhile with me and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known. But this bridge will only take you halfway there. The last few steps you have to take alone. Shel Silverstein

Tara

Durmitor is a mountain in the northwest of Montenegro. The most special part of the Durmitor National park is river Tara with its deep canyon, at some points over 1300m deep, making it the deepest river canyon in Europe and second in the world just after Grand Canyon. Canyon is UNESCO World heritage Site, and enlisted in world's ecological biosphere reservation. The waters of Tara River are drinkable all the way. Đurđevića Tara Bridge was built between 1937 and 1940 in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and at the time of its completion, it was the biggest concrete arch bridge in Europe. This is a 64MPx composite of three vertical X-Pro1 panorama shots taken half an hour after Halfway photo when the mist had almost gone.

A NASA-funded study by New Zealand scientists has discovered that our planet's clouds have gotten lower in the past 10 years. The study said the average height of clouds in the earth's atmosphere declined by around 30 to 40 meters (100-130 feet), or by one percent. Fewer clouds at very high altitudes contributed mostly to the height differences, but the exact reason is still undetermined. ... I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it. J.D.

Babylon

How many miles to Babylon? Three score miles and ten. Can I get there by candle-light? Yes, and back again. If your heels are nimble and light, You may get there by candle-light. Borges' most iconic short story is the one called "The Library of Babel" about a race of people who live in a cosmos that is bizarre indeed. The universe in which these people live is a vast, apparently endless honeycomb of interlocking rooms, each one with two hallways that connect it to other rooms on the same level and a spiral staircase connecting it to rooms both above and below. Every room's walls are occupied by bookshelves that are full of books. Fun with infinities. If our universe is flat and infinite, then it has infinite matter. So take any probability, if it is finite, then it has occured an infinite number of times. So if the universe is infinite, then no, not everything would exist, but everything that is physically possible would exist provided that matter was distributed throughout the universe. Due to quantum fluctuations and other random events, anything that could theoretically happen on earth or in space would by necessity happen because it would come up in infinite space. There is a world exactly like this one except that you wore a different color shirt today. Whatever the probability.. say 1 in 10 to the trillionith power, it is finite and that means that there are infinite copies of me in the universe. So, there is a world out there in which this picture was taken. Sculpture "Birocracy" author: Marko Pejčić

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime. Ray Bradbury Fahrenheit 451

On March 16, 1975 Deep Purple had a concert in Belgrade as the first western rock band to play in venues seating thousands of fans. Members of a Serbian and former Yugoslav rock band Smak bought the tickets and went to the concert to see their idols for the first time. Just before the gig, manager called them and told to bring their instruments as they will perform as the opening act. They played only three songs. Legend says that after hearing Radomir Mihajlovic Tocak and his fingerpicking and vibrato, Deep Purple delayed the appearance on the stage and were very angry because they had to play after Smak opening act. Ritchie Blackmore said that he was so nervous after listening this guys guitar solo that he emptied the contents of a bottle, full of local brandy onto the surprised manager. No deep purples in this photo, just a reddish Belgrade jungle sunset as a hommage to the most emotional Stratocaster in this time-space continuum. Be sure to listen really loud.

Hommage to Дании́л

Blue notebook № 10 Once there was a redheaded man without eyes and without ears. He had no hair either, so that he was a redhead was just something they said.He could not speak, for he had no mouth. He had no nose either. He didn't even have arms or legs. He had no stomach either, and he had no back, and he had no spine, and no intestines of any kind. He didn't have anything at all. So it is hard to understand whom we are really talking about. So it is probably best not to talk about him any more. Дании́л Ива́нович Хармс In this building, in this very room, a yugoslav movie The Harms Case was shot in 1988

The existence of forgetting has never been proved. Inside my head - at least that's where I imagine it - there's a little room where I store memories. A room like the stacks in a library. And to understand the working of my own heart I have to keep on making new reference cards. I have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases... so, even without a God, I'll live forever, here in my own private library on this pale blue dot .

Runcible Cat

The first practical application of runcification was in 1871 when Edward Lear noted that a runcible spoon could be used by owls and pussycats. "They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon," from The Owl & The Pussycat. In subsequent years Lear applied the principles of runcibility in other fields: "He has gone to fish, for Aunt Jobiska's Runcible Cat with crimson whiskers!" Modern students of runciosity believe that it may have been inspired by the word "rouncival" (apparently meaning gigantic).

so what!

Sympathy for the Devil‬

I shall sit down,' replied the cat, sitting down, 'but I shall enter an objection with regard to your last. My speeches in no way resemble verbal muck, as you have been pleased to put it in the presence of a lady, but rather a sequence of tightly packed syllogisms, the merit of which would be appreciated by such connoisseurs as Sextus Empiricus, Martianus Capella, and, for all I know, Aristotle himself.' Your king is in check,' said Woland. Very well, very well,' responded the cat, and he began studying the chessboard through his opera glasses. And so, donna,' Woland addressed Margarita, 'I present to you my retinue. This one who is playing the fool is the cat Behemoth... Mikhail Bulgakov The Master and Margarita

Lamento über Belgrad

Jan Mayen, mein Srem, Paris, meine toten Freunde, Kirschen in China, all das erscheint mir noch, solang ich hier liege, schweigend, wach, sterbend, erkaltet, ein Scheit in der Asche. Aber, das sind nicht mehr wir, nicht das Leben, nicht die Sterne, sondern Ungeheuer, Polypen, Delphine, sie werfen sich über uns, eine Flut, sie reiten uns heulend: „Staub, Asche, Tod ist’s.“ Sie rufen, russisch: „nitschewo“ – und spanisch: „nada“...

for the last bohemian

Skadarlija is a vintage street, generally considered the main bohemian quarter of Belgrade, styled as the little Montmartre. It is less than 400 metres long, yet is one of the most famous streets in the town. Restaurants there are proud of their lists of worldwide celebrities and epicurians who visited them over the decades. Even Alfred Hitchcock ended his diet in Skadarlija. But this is not a photo about Skadarlija, although the place is the same. It's about the gentle touch of Košava, famous Belgrade wind which starts in Romania, follows the Danube through the Iron Gate where it gains a jet effect, continues to Belgrade and moves far south to Bulgaria. And, of course, it's about Belgrade girls.

Up home we wear a hat like that to shoot deer in, for Chrissake, he said. That's a deer shooting hat. Like hell it is. I took it off and looked at it.

rules

The Universe is very, very big. It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules. Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever. Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies. Rule number two: Everything lasts forever. Craig Ferguson Between the Bridge and the River

the banquet

According to Aristophanes in Plato's The Banquet, in the ancient world of legend there were three types of people. In ancient times people weren't simply male or female, but one of three types : male/male, male/female or female/female. In other words, each person was made out of the components of two people. Everyone was happy with this arrangment and never really gave it much thought. But then God took a knife and cut everyone in half, right down the middle. So after that the world was divided just into male and female, the upshot being that people spend their time running around trying to locate their missing half. Haruki Murakami Kafka on the Shore

introibo ad altare dei

The twentieth century began in Dublin on thursday 16 of June 1904, when stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. That was, of course, the very first sentence of the most important novel ever written. The twentieth century ended on saturday 4 of august 2012, when speaking to Brazilian newspaper, Paolo Coelho said: "Today, writers want to impress other writers. One of the books that caused great harm was James Joyce's Ulysses, which is pure style. There is nothing there. Stripped down, Ulysses is a tweet." And he also said: "I'm a modern writer because I make the difficult seem easy". He makes difficult seem easy.... And here is the twenty-first century, the era of global blunting and the reign of idiots, their long-awaited time: the golden age of the average, the marginalized majority who finally got the historic opportunity to be heard and to judge. Pressed with imposed shame for centuries, that majority is now free to finally say that Joyce is complicated and incomprehensible as incomprehensible is everything more complex than the form of status on some social network. So, here we go again: "Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him on the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned: ________ " What did Buck Mulligan intone? a) "Introibo ad altare Dei." b) "Paulo who?" c) "Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find treasure." Paulo Coelho has 5,554,877 followers on Twitter, but I prefer this Paulo Coehlo than real Coelho anyway: https://twitter.com/PauloCoehlo ps. I have to admit that once I was given The Alchemist to read by a friend. What an alchemy it was, if by that you mean turning perfectly good ink and paper into undiluted shit.

A Perfect Day for Bananafish

"You just keep your eyes open for any bananafish. This is a perfect day for bananafish." "I don't see any," Sybil said. "That's understandable. Their habits are very peculiar." He kept pushing the float. The water was not quite up to his chest. "They lead a very tragic life," he said. "You know what they do, Sybil?" She shook her head. "Well, they swim into a hole where there's a lot of bananas. They're very ordinary-looking fish when they swim in. But once they get in, they behave like pigs. Why, I've known some bananafish to swim into a banana hole and eat as many as seventy-eight bananas." He edged the float and its passenger a foot closer to the horizon. "Naturally, after that they're so fat they can't get out of the hole again. Can't fit through the door." "Not too far out," Sybil said. "What happens to them?" "What happens to who?" "The bananafish." "Oh, you mean after they eat so many bananas they can't get out of the banana hole?" "Yes," said Sybil. "Well, I hate to tell you, Sybil. They die." "Why?" asked Sybil. "Well, they get banana fever. It's a terrible disease." J. D. Salinger

Kafka on the Shore

I’m free, I think. I shut my eyes and think hard and deep about how free I am, but I can’t really understand what it means. All I know is I’m totally alone. All alone in an unfamiliar place, like some solitary explorer who’s lost his compass and his map. Is this what it means to be free? I don’t know, and I give up thinking about it.

Stupid Ending

Ask questions, no, screech questions out loud - while kneeling in front of the electric doors at Safeway, demanding other citizens ask questions along with you - while chewing up old textbooks and spitting the words onto downtown sidewalks - outside the Planet Hollywood, outside the stock exchange, and outside the Gap. Grind questions onto the glass on photocopiers. Scrape challenges onto old auto parts and throw them off bridges so that future people digging in the mud will question the world, too. Carve eyeballs into tire treads and onto shoe leathers so that your every trail speaks of thinking and questioning and awareness. Design molecules that crystallize into question marks. Make bar codes print out fables, not prices. You can't even throw away a piece of litter unless it has a question mark stamped on it - a demand for people to reach a finer place.

With an amazing regularity I keep seeing one and the same dream. It seems to make me return to the place, poignantly dear to my heart, where my grandfathers house used to be in which I was born 40 years ago right on the dinner table. Each time I try to enter it, something prevents me from doing that. I see this dream again and again. And when I see those walls made of logs and the dark entrance, even in my dream I become aware that I'm only dreaming it. And the overwhelming joy is clouded by anticipation of awakening. At times something happens and I stop dreaming of the house and the pine trees of my childhood around it. Then I get depressed. And I can't wait to see this dream in which I'll be a child again and feel happy again because everything will still be ahead, everything will be possible...

Ancora adesso, nelle terre di Carewall, tutti raccontano quel viaggio. Ognuno a modo suo. Tutti senza averlo mai visto. Ma non importa. Non smetteranno mai di raccontarlo. Perché nessuno possa dimenticare di quanto sarebbe bello se, per ogni mare che ci aspetta, ci fosse un fiume, per noi. E qualcuno - un padre, un amore, qualcuno - capace di prenderci per mano e di trovare quel fiume - immaginarlo, inventarlo - e sulla sua corrente posarci, con la leggerezza di una sola parola, addio. Questo, davvero, sarebbe meraviglioso. Sarebbe dolce, la vita, qualunque vita. E le cose non farebbero male, ma si avvicinerebbero portate dalla corrente, si potrebbe prima sfiorarle e poi toccarle e solo alla fine farsi toccare. Farsi ferire, anche. Morirne. Non importa. Ma tutto sarebbe, finalmente, umano. Basterebbe la fantasia di qualcuno - un padre, un amore, qualcuno. Lui saprebbe inventarla una strada, qui, in mezzo a questo silenzio, in questa terra che non vuole parlare. Strada clemente, e bella. Una strada da qui al mare. Tutt'e due immobili, gli occhi fissi su quell'immensa distesa d'acqua. Da non crederci. Sul serio. Da rimanere li una vita, senza capirci niente, ma continuando a guardare. Il mare davanti, un lungo fiume alle spalle, la terra, alla fine, sotto i piedi. E loro, li, immobili. Elisewin e Padre Pluche. Come un incantesimo. Senza neanche - un pensiero in testa, un pensiero vero, solo stupore. Meraviglia.

to throw a stone at Charlotte Mayhew

"Would you like to know how Charlotte got those nine stitches?" I asked suddenly, in a tone of voice that sounded perfectly normal to me. "We were up at the Lake. Seymour had written to Charlotte, inviting her to come up and visit us, and her mother finally let her. What happened was, she sat down in the middle of our driveway one morning to pet Boo Boo’s cat, and Seymour threw a stone at her. He was twelve. That’s all there was to it. He threw it at her because she looked so beautiful sitting there in the middle of the driveway with Boo Boo’s cat. Everybody knew that for God’s sake—me, Charlotte, Boo Boo, Waker, Walt, the whole family." I stared at the pewter ashtray on the coffee table. "Charlotte never said a word to him about it.
