Roman Pictures

08/07/2017 17:15

Being in a gloomy mood I looked through a file with some photographs I took one evening in Rome, some months ago. I had forgotten about them, though the solitary feeling they provided harmonizes well with the grey and rainy dusk lingering outside my window here in Hässleholm. 

I began taking the photos while I walked down to our magazine where I often sit and write, there I ended up looking at some pictures in the art books I have laying around, before I decided for an evening stroll in the neighbourhood, watching the grafitti. A perishable art form that gradually disappears, as I hope my melancholy mood eventually will do as well. When I came home I gave our fish some food and went to bed.

Some friends of mine use to complain that my blog entries are too wordy, so here I give you one with almost no words at all:

A pleasure of mine is to listen to CDs while I am alone in the car. Alone? Well, it means that I am able to listen with a concentration that cannot be achieved when the rest of the family is around, particularly since they are not so particularily fond of some of the sounds I occasionally like to...
Ett av mina glädjeämnen är att i bilen ensam lyssna till mina CDskivor. Ensam? Jo, då kan jag nämligen spela sådant som kräver koncentration och som i allmänhet inte uppskattas så livligt av den övriga familjen, men som emellanåt fascinerar mig  ̶  exempelvis Schönberg, Webern, Penderecki...
My wife and my daughters tell me that I do not get enough sleep. They know and have read that we humans should sleep for at least eight hours, if we do not do it we are threatened by Alzheimer's disease and senility. I assume they are right, usually I do not sleep for more than six hours. However,...
Hans Adolph Brorson, präst i den sönderjyllandska staden Tønder, skrev 1734 psalmen Jeg går i fare, hvor jeg går, vars tredje vers beskriver dödens visshet: Jeg går til døden, hvor jeg går og ved mig ikke sikker, ej nogen dag og time, når han har mig alt i strikker; et lidet åndefang kan ende...

Min hustru och mina döttrar säger mig att jag sover för lite. De vet och har läst att vi människor under varje dygn bör sova åtta timmar, gör vi inte det hotar Alzheimer och senilitet. Möjligen har de rätt, oftast sover jag inte mer än sex timmar. Drömmer gör jag dock varje natt och jag ser fram...
Especially Americans seem to have a romantic view of Paris as the capital of love, art and good food, at least if you believe the image of the French capital created and supported by Hollywood  ̶  La Ville Lumière, Le Gai Paris. My first experiences of that town were not...
Speciellt amerikaner tycks ha en romantisk uppfattning om Paris som en kärlekens, konstens och den goda matens huvudstad, i varje fall om man får tro den bild av den franska huvudstaden som har skapats av Hollywood  ̶  La Ville Lumière, Le Gai Paris. Mina första erfarenheter av...
Sometime in the late seventies, I and Rose went to an auditorium in the university town of Lund in southern Sweden, to listen to a lecture and watch colour slides presented by Erich Anton Paul von Däniken. The hall was filled and the atmosphere was expectant. The crowd was mixed; enthusiastic UFO...
Någon gång vid slutet av sjuttiotalet befann sig jag och Rose på Spartas auditorium i Lund för att lyssna till ett föredrag och se ljusbilder presenterade av Erich Anton Paul von Däniken. Salen var fylld och stämningen förväntansfull. Publiken var blandad; entusiastiska UFO-nerdar satt med sina...
