A llama, totally unexpected!
While I was just on a walk with a friend, we spotted this llama!
And that's what I am going to use for my
RUSSIAN WORD OF THE DAY:
ЛÁМА -- llama (English, español) and Lama (Deutsch).
FEEL FREE to put the name of this animal on YOUR language!
There is a funny rhyme about llama in Russian, by the famous poet Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893-1930): Этот зверь зовётся лама.
Лама-дочь и лама-мама.
(This mammal is called llama.
Llama the daughter and llama the mom.) #llama#лама#russianwordoftheday#wordoftheday#ig_captures#russianlanguage#russianlessons#animalkingdom#вмиреживотных
Portret. פּאָרטרעט is Yiddish for ‘portrait’. In German, פּאָרטרעט is (das) Porträt. In Hebrew, דְּיוקׇן (‘d’yokan’) is ‘portrait’. The background image above is ‘Portrait of a Nice Jewish Boy with Peyot’ by Isidor Kaufmann (22 March 1853-16 November 1921). Isidor Kaufmann was born in Arad, Austria-Hungary (now in Romania) and died in Vienna. His most noted paintings refer to subjects of Jewish (often Hassidic) life in Galicia (see post 29 April 2018). One of his oil paintings, ‘Der Besuch des Rabbi’ (‘The visit of the rabbi’), was originally owned by Kaiser Franz Josef and is now in the possession of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, but not on public display at the moment, according to the website. (khm.at) Isidor Kaufmann was awarded the gold medal for his oil painting ‘Der Zweifler’ (‘The Sceptic’) at the ill-fated Weltausstellung (‘world fair’) in Vienna in 1873. (Source: wikipedia.org) Another famous painter, who also dedicated his life to depicting Jewish life in Galicia was Maurycy Gottlieb (21/28 February 1856-17 July 1879). Another famous painter born in Austria-Hungary was Egon Schiele (12 June 1890-31 October 1918). He was a protégé of Gustav Klimt. Egon Schiele died at the age of 28 in the influenza epidemic sweeping Europe at the time. Maurycy Gottlieb had an even shorter life. He died at only 23 years of age and tragically because of a broken heart. However, both were prolific in the short time they had on the planet and their art will be enjoyed by generation upon generation to come. Both Egon Schiele and Maurycy Gottlieb will be the topic of future posts. (Background image credit: judaica-art.com) Next post Tuesday: London 23:00
Today. BOOK. I don’t read a lot of books but if I do, it has to be something absolutely amazing so it grabs my attention and takes me on a journey. I also like to read peoples stories, especially if they are funny. I have a few faves. Don’t tell mum I work on the rigs is a fave and I’m nearly finished Marching Powder which is fantastic and I loved Perfume and managed to make my way through a Kafka. I am definitely a writer though and this talent surfaced back in 2010 when I began blogging and my love of writing grew, even though I haven’t sat down for a while and put pen to paper so to speak. I’ve been told a couple of times by fortune tellers that I should write a book. I started a writing project back in 2014, which I shared on my blog and people have suggested that it would make a great book, so I started editing it with the intent to share it online. I then decided that there has to be a better way to share this. What I have decided to do, given that I already have this book is to read it – not in a kindle kind of way, but in a sit down and share my story kind of way while I film it and then I will share it on you tube or some other platform. I think my story and journey is one that has and will continue to inspire others to believe that anything is possible, even in the hardest of times. And that the story of our own life should be the greatest book of all.
I envy no one; but, if there is something I kind of envy it is people with no mental illness. Sometimes, I wonder how much productive I would be if only I could control my brain, my thoughts, but this is my battle, and I fight it every day—I hope to get it under control one day instead of getting controlled by it—depression.
