Thursday’s Special: The Spirit of Wisdom

In the language of alchemists, calcination is the destruction of ego and our attachments to material possessions. It is usually a natural humbling process as we are gradually assaulted and overcome by the trials and tribulations of life, though it can be a deliberate surrender of our inherent hubris gained through a variety of spiritual disciplines that ignite the fire of introspection and self-evaluation.

Relic – a Menhir from Filitosa

I just love WordPress challenges – just when I think I have nothing to show there I find something to fit the challenge in course ;)

My regular blogger friends have already witnessed my fascination with beautiful Corsica, but I haven’t shared anything from the most famous Corsican Neolithic site yet – Filitosa.

Will you have a look at the terrific entries for this week, please:

Black & White Sunday: Soaring into the Sky

Standing prominently on Montmartre (the Hill of Martyrs where the first bishop of Paris was beheaded) the Basilica of the Sacred Heart marks the highest point of the city and on a clear day offers the most beautiful view stretching to 50 km radius. Regular visitors of my blog could see the photos of the Basilica from different angles as well as some breathtaking views captured from its soaring towers. This black and white capture is the last picture in my Sacre Coeur collection, but I am sure some day I will go back for more.

Thursday’s Special: Blooms with Fire

 

burning

The inspiration for this post came from the beautiful tune I have attached here which is the score from the film Frida – Frida Kahlo was a brilliant Mexican artist, better known as the wife of Diego Rivera, famous muralist. Rivera is one of the reasons I have been wishing to visit Mexico for a long time, but this will have to wait for some other life time. Please, enjoy the song and try not to burn down your house in the process ;)

Black & White Sunday: The Look

This Sunday I decided to go with a bit of sepia for a change. If you think you’ve seen this stunning mug before, you are right :D Here is the first photo of Hugo that I posted some months ago.
