Falling & Rising

Yosa Buson one of ”the big five” (Basho, Issa, Buson, Chiyo-Ni and Shiki) – was born in Kema Settsu, where several waterfalls can be seen.

Waterfalls are beautiful – also poetic, dramatic and a fresh nature phenomena. But – there always is a but – I wouldn’t live close to one. Just think – never a quiet moment!  No I prefer visiting waterfalls and enjoy them – get inspired. Now thinking about the beautiful Brudslöjan – The Bridal Veil – between Sweden and Norway. I visited it once skiing – it was all frozen at that time.

Just came home after an evening with Scottish contemporary dancers. Some days ago I enjoyed dancers from Netherlands. So I am in a good mood. Swaying on my cloud-look-alike surfing board on every named waterfall this minute on Internet. So beware – I will visit yours!

The first Scottish performance today was extraordinary! Also funny. The audience – and of course I – was so amused. First part they performed as if they were the instruments in an orchestra playing classic music. Adorable! And the funny part about birds seducing each other in a human-look-alike flamboyant way. I took that scen with me home smiling all the way.

I didn’t meet ”my” favorite choreographer this night. Imagine he is too busy with the premier to soon take place which he told me about last time. He looked really tired then. I’m looking forward that performance in a few days. But – there always is a but – before that I have other events to attend. My schedule is fully booked.

I don’t know why I choose this opposite-kind-of-water-fall …. rising water …


I only use my own photos here and … so sorry ….  I don’t find any falling water only rising. Here is a really strong one:

Far & Close

I wonder – like Rodriguez – often about a lot of things from … how the brain works … about similar structures in nature … both built up and movements … to how the universe works … about why the ‘great wall’ exists there far out …

Now I wonder why is it ‘hideout’ and not ‘hidein’?

out in space
tasting all of everything – with love
in my heart

From what I wonder about to what I’m fascinated about … I’m so very much fascinated about ‘far and close’ … in pictures … photos … picture makings … imagination … I often struggle to keep ‘far and close’ in mind … with me. As well as ‘whole and detail’. That suits perfect in all subjects. Politics as well as … you name it!

Today I will ‘hideout’ and enjoy Scottish dancers and then I will go and ‘hidein’ at home sweet home.
