Flower Chemistry with Minimalux

I’ll admit it. Chemistry was not one of my favourite subjects. But it was better than math. And those experiments in the chemistry lab (with reagents, foaming substances and changes in colour) were interesting, no matter how unscientific our mind was at that stage.

Today, the closest I would get to Mendeleyev’s periodic table and to laboratory glassware is via Minimalux‘s sterling silver-plated vases and Primo Levi’s The Periodic Table.

Stacking Books and Zines

A new year ahead.

For now I’m fictionally stacking books and zines. I look for new perspectives and original narrative voices, expecting to gain insight into the undercurrents of unconformity and creativity.

The Great Enigma

Looking over the reviews on The Great Enigma collection of poems published by New Directions. Tomas Tranströmer is the poet, and from the little poems that I read his poetry is indeed exquisite.

Abstracts, perceptions fold into nature and cement into beautiful imagery.

Weekend Reads: Dervla Murphy

I don’t remember how I came across Irish writer Dervla Murphy. I have never read any travel writers before, but the titles of her books made me curious. Almost all of the places she visited and wrote about are off the beaten track places like Ethiopia, Nepal, Laos, Cuba, South Africa, Madagascar, Peru, to name only a few. When asked about her travelling she candidly said “I simply can’t imagine what it would be like to never have travelled. I wouldn’t be the person I became.”

With this in mind I took up “Silverland: A Winter Journey Beyond the Urals” and I was immediately drawn in.
