This wall is located in Literatu Street in Vilnius Lithuania. The Literatu Street Project or also known as the Literatu Wall is an artistic project that started somewhere in 2009. Each plaques you see on the wall represents an author, some of them more famous than others, but all of them has certainly moved many through their literary talents. If you happen to visit this street in Vilnius, Lithuania and you did not see your favourite author, all you need to do is to apply a petition to add the name of your favourite author. You need to design the plaque that would best represent him/her and his/her work. Then, your favourtie author will be added on the wall and will join the collage of authors. I think that it is a beautiful project. Continue reading
From Utrecht central station passing through the Hoog Cathrijn on the way to the city centre. New pathway reveals this view of a bridge used to be covered by construction site. Bridge is indeed symbolic as Cheri Lucas Rowland has suggested in her post this week entitled Bridge. It can connect two worlds and deconstruct dichotomies. It offers mobility to those who wish to cross over, but also an agency to those who wish to remain in between.
I am back and blogging again. I was very busy finishing my research project and could not find time or space in which I could keep this blog updated. Last week, project has been concluded and very proud of the work I have done. What will be the next step? I do not know yet. While thinking of it, blogging for the time being.
It is quite unfortunate that I do not name the name of this tree in front of my window when I admire its beauty so much. This tree is never static. It constantly changes its appearance throughout the year as if it is following a strict protocol. Today, it stems are thick with white small flowers. Soon, the flowers will be all blown by the wind and will be replaced green leaves. It will be dense in leaves as it is dense in flowers today. The photograph below is a photograph of the same tree taken very recently, 30 days ago to be exact. Look how it changed and transformed in just a short period of time.

They are all green and beautiful. What else there to say? The colours get more bright when the day is so sunny. The sunny day is deceivingly warm thought. It might look very warm when staring outside from inside the house. However, when I went out to take a picture, I have realised that it still not warm enough going out without a jacket. That being said, these greens are just so beautiful and even more beautiful on a very sunny and cheerful day like today!
Taking this week’s theme for photo challenge quite too literally, I present the view from my attic window. This is as high as I could get. After all, we do not need to be too much elevated to consider ourselves to be on the top.
First, a disclaimer: It has been suggested that one should refrain from talking (and in this case posting) about religion and politics when the audience is diverse. I was quite reluctant to post this photograph because of its religious overtones. It is not my intention to offend anyone.
Show us something that surprised or delighted you on “the road taken.”

I am on my way to the university that day. I have to meet my research adviser to discuss the status of the project I am currently conducting. Most of the time, I take my bike when I need to go somewhere. I do not have a car. I do not even have a licence to drive. I do not even know how to drive. That does not matter. I do not really find driving a motor vehicle that exciting like most people I know. Driving is not a priority especially when it is too expensive to obtain a licence and to own a car. Furthermore, the public transport system and the short distances in where I live make cars somehow superfluous. Instead, I always take my bike or sometimes walk. The bicycle lane is not a road I have taken, but the road I regularly take. Without it, I would have never have dared to bike at all.
