La Cité V

Depicted? It is at least a quarter of a block in the inner most city – at the very core of my city and that would be Stockholm. Function? The sole function is to park auto carriages (cars) in the center of the city. Mind you, this was engineered – to funnel traffic into the… Continue reading La Cité V

The Word

As I suspected the “camera-cover-saying”: Ällerbätsch! Turned out to be hard to translate. But, I can say this much; it is Bavarian and it is somewhat cheeky if I interpreted the interpretation correctly. Again, I’m not a German speaking person at all. Languages are truly fascinating things. There’s a lot more to all of them… Continue reading The Word

I have read it and it was a gift from my grandmother on my (not 100% sure) 15th birthday (when I indeed had ambitions). I did not give it much thought at the time (I was fifteen or so, I did appreciate the gift) but now when I’m not fifteen any more and my grandmother… Continue reading L’Iliade

Will The Difference Ever Be Understood?

It is something that should be readily understandable and as clear as the most pristine flood water – like in the North. What now? – The simple question is this one: what is the difference between “old-school” and “history”? Primarily, (for me in any event), is musical and I’m confident in my belief that it… Continue reading Will The Difference Ever Be Understood?
