“Wait In Line”

I can’t shake this feeling
At the end o’ each day
That I keep on working hard
But all I do is get paid
Though I keep believing
There’s a light up ahead
‘Cause it’s only getting darker
And I could stay in my bed

It’s a fight
It takes so long
But I’ve learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

I walk home in the shadows
I carry my cage
And I hope they notice
What I brought to the stage

‘Cause it’s a fight
And it takes so long
But I’ve learned to hold my own

So I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I watch
As they steal my time
I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

Ooh whenever it gets inside
It gets so hard to hide
Whenever it gets inside
Ooh I know you’ll turn out right
Giving it all my life
I know you’ll turn out right

And I stand
And I wait in line
With a heavy head
And this bottle of wine
And I vow
As they steal my time
I know one day I’ll get mine
And I stand here and wait in line

I stand and I wait in line
I stand and I wait in line

The flying doubt   2 comments

I love to fly. I really do.

For some time now job has given me an opportunity to fly quite often which is nice and on the other hand quite demanding. There was a time when I was thinking not to unpack at all after a trip, but rather just to take my bag with me on tomorrow trip without packing again. Now the balance is created so there is no crazy flying anymore.

Nevertheless I want to share a story which was for me quite surprising. Everything happened a while ago. Like I said – I like to fly – so it surprised me even more why there was a doubt and what on earth – or should I say in sky 🙂 – possessed me to felt that way. I felt a little fear that was crawling into me and that was not a funny feeling. But after it – something more – and a lot of it…

Anyway, without further ado, here is it, and here is how it happened. What is interesting that I wrote it on my cell while flying, I wrote it just the way it come to me..

So here it goes..

Are you ready for lift off? Are you ready to be push or to be pulled? Looking forward to it! Can wait! Go!

1

Yes up we go! Could you see the airplane shadow on the ground?

2

Oopsss! Did we start that U turn already?! Seams kinda quick..

3

Leaving the runaway behind us…

4

Still working on those 180 degrees.

5

Into the clouds.

6

Expecting rough weather captain? Well yeah, kinda…

7

Quick flash on the beauty of hope..

8

Stop rocking the boat! Turbulence! Why are we bumping up and down so much? The questions are popping, odds, purpose, all the big ones.

9

Wait a minute. Maybe, after all…

10

Oh you little faith you…

11

You want beauty, well the way is through storm! Like in life…

12

Snow, still thinking skiing? Na, above clouds! Flaying home!

13

14

Sea above clouds? Above horizon? Snow, sea? I need to check my eyes :)..

15

16

You want me to draw something with the wing?

17

Who’s playing tricks on me know! Another lake in the sky? Enough – descent – home!

18

Turbalance, fear, hope – e.g. quite a bumpy ride :)…

With crows on my tail   Leave a comment

Despite the low temperature I decided to escort the penultimate day of the year with a run. Because of all the obligations in this year I was unable to play and do sports as much as I wanted and needed to.

After a first few meters I felt so fulfilled which was a confirmation that I didn’t make a mistake.

There is something primordial in running and general in mobility. Despite the cold and just a few passers-by the run was really nice and special.

I was accompanied by with so many crows and strong northeastern wind that counted every bone in my body, it was quite cold.

However, as it happens in life, at the end of my jogging the sun welcomed me.

I wish you all a Happy New 2016!

Health and happiness, but above all, I wish you that you do what you love and what makes you happy!

Cheers!

Why?   1 comment

I could never understand the need of certain people for the profits which is for them ahead of everything. For their own earnings they are able to destroy everything and everyone around them, but they do not understand that they are also tearing apart our only home – Earth. This kind of selfishness is destructive on so many levels, but this one – which is repeated every year at this time – especially grieves me.

Of course, this is not the worst thing that could be seen in this world of so many unfortunate sorrows. I do not want to even think of much worse cases, but this really bothers me, probably because I see it and witness to this violent act every year again and again.

Every year at Christmas day you can see remains of what was a day earlier goods for customer with many gold coins in their deep pockets.  A large number of pine trees that are not sold on Christmas Eve are just lying around – with the exception that in recent years they are neatly arranged in a pile.

This scene gives me the creeps. The pine seems like random victims of a senseless and unnecessary disaster. Why – and why so many?

IMG_4139

Victims randomly stack up

As you can imagine the majority of pine trees that were left behind was the most expensive ones – which is confirmed by the price tag on one of them.

The Price tag on Christmas

Greed. Human greed. Such a terrible thing!

Makes me sad…

Miles for a Smile   Leave a comment

Yesterday I was supposed to meet with my friend for the pleasant conversation with the specialty of hops – beer… I was looking forward to spending time with him and asking my thousand inevitable questions about the length of the boom, the joints, the sails and the forms of boards for windsurfing.

I knew that the questions will create create a new blue turtleneck sweater on the neck of my friend who will – as always – neatly and patiently give the answers to my newbie questions and fascination of the sport, which – for me – has no equal. After all what else can beat the wind, sea and blue sky with silence and submax heart rate and uncertainty of return…

Ah yes, blisters on the hands and bloody feet ☺️, but more on that topic some other time.

But after ten meetings, and the last one which was maintained for up to 5 pm, and of course was the most difficult one, and at the same time brought me to a strange disappointment – the one on a matter of life and truth. Well, you can say that it is strange for a guy at my age to get such disappointment, but there you go, I guess I am the sort of romantic one who still believe in wright and wrong, and humanity..

Unfortunately, I had no strength left to socialize and all I was capable of after that kind of meeting was to put on running shoes and set off on a run to remove from my head all those nice people who surround me every day for eight and more business hours, testing my limits – over and over again, and each time a little more, each time a little further.

I started to run a little disinterested but after a while all together went in another direction. It was pleasant to see the fade version of everything that is not essential, and time has become important, but inversely. It was not important to run quicker and faster but longer and unencumbered, with free mind..

Mile after mile and a collage days come into mind..

It was my first 7.5 miles and I was smiling!

So when in doubt – and if you can – try jogging, but do not stress yourself too much about how, when, times and all the other questions, just go there and give it a go. It will do you good!

Long Night of Museums   4 comments

In Croatia, as elsewhere in the world, for some time is very popular action called Long Night of Museums, a time when more than 100 museums across the country open their door from 6 PM to 1 AM for free.
People love to come and visit five of six museums in one night and you can see large crowds and a long tail of visitors waiting to come in museums and look around.

I visited one of the museum and that would not be anything unusual if I was not welcomed by a special guest who joyously welcomed me! The museum staff happily explained to me that the special guest was the first visitor who has waited outside of the museum doors to be let in.
You can already guess who it was, furry little creature, cuddly face, who bumped in each visitors feet with intention to be cuddled. He got himself a little milk and was purring contentedly and just seeing in the visitors. Needless to say that the kitty was the real star of the exhibition and soon everybody becom friendly with our new host :).


Well, until the next opportunity my colorful, furry friend...
