Sea Child (outfit post) / Dijete mora (odjevna kombinacija)










 




"What she remembered best of childhood was the sea excursions. Something about what being afloat spoke to her most basic self. Lift and fall of the waves, the sense of unbounded horizons with strange new places just beyond the curved limits of a watery world, that trilling edge of danger implicit in the very substance that supported her. All of it combined to assure her she was a Sea Child." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert.
Some people regard SF as a trivial form of literature. I take the opposite view. Not that I believe that all SF is brilliant, that would be silly. Nevertheless, most of my favourite novels belong either to SF or fantasy...and I'm not at all ashamed to admit it. Spending five years at a University studying literature hasn't changed my view. Studying reinforced my love of classics but did nothing to change my love for all kinds of works of literature. Some of my childhood favourites are still precisely that. Favourites. It remains a good reminder that for art there are no limits. Deep within us there is this need to classify everything. Sometimes that need makes us blind...and more than a little silly. Balancing on strange currents....We humans are quite capable of that, but alas we tend to forget it.

* The photos were taken in July, during a ferry ride from Starigrad (island Hvar) to Split. The outfit I don't feel like commenting, you've seen me wearing this New Yorker  dress and Azel sneakers often enough.


 " Ono čega se najbolje sjećala iz svoga djetinstva bijahu izleti na more. Nešto u bivanju na moru govorilo je njenom najdubljem ja. Podizanje i spuštanje valova, osjećaj beskrajnih horizonta sa neobičnim novim mjestima odmah iza zakrivljenih linija vodenog svijeta, taj uzbudljiv rub opasnosti očit u samoj tvari koja ju je nosila. Sve se to skupilo da bi je uvjerilo da je ona Dijete Mora." Chapter House: Dune, Frank Herbert. (naslov preveden kao Kapitol Dina kod nas)

Neki ljudi smatraju da je znanstvena fantastika trivijalna književnost. Moje je mišljenje sasvim suprotno. Ne da vjerujem da je sva ZF brilijanta, to bi bilo blesavo. No, većina mojih omiljenih romana ipak pripada tom žanru ( i fantastici)....i uopće se ne sramim to priznati. Pet godina studiranja književnosti nije promijenilo moje mišljenje. Proučavanje klasika navelo me da ih volim više, ali nije učinilo da SF (i druge nepriznate književne vrste) volim manje. Neke od knjiga koje su mi bile najdraže u djetinstvu još su uvijek upravo to: moje najdraže knjige. To ostaje dobar podsjetnik da u umjetnosti nema granica. Duboko u nama postoji ta potreba da klasificiramo sve.  Ponekad nas ta potreba osljepljuje...i čini nas poprilično blesavima. Održavanje ravnoteže na neobičnim strujama...Mi ljudi smo sposobni za to, ali nažalost to često zaboravljamo.

* Fotografije su srpanjske, sa vožnje trajektom od Starigrada (na Hvaru) do Splita. Odjevnu kombinaciju ne bih posebno komentirala, vidjeli ste me u ovim patikama i haljini puno puta.

    1. Da, sasvim moguće, što se mene tiče nekako je najbolja ona famozna trojka (Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke) + R. Zelanzy (koji je poznat i po fantastici), a relativno nedavno otkriće je za mene bila Ursula K. Le Guin, baš me je oduševila sa romanom The Left Hand of Darkness- to mi je možda najbolja psihološka studija razlike među spolovima ikada.

      Što se fantastike tiče, mislim da će mi tu broj jedan uvijek biti Tolkien, a od ovih novijih samo su mi dva baš nekako sjela: Guy Gavriel Kay i Martin. Čitala sam još par njih koji su mi se dopali, ali nisu me baš oduševili.

  12. Bas me odusevljavas svojim nacinom razmisljanja! Ne mogu bas nista nadodati na ove zadnje recenice o klasificiranju i da umjetnost nema granica...
    Mozda bas zato sto sam se uvijek jezila nekakve klasifikacije, spadanja u grupe/ kutije, whatever, sam izabrala fotografiju kao svoj zivotni poziv... Mjesto koje nema granica i koje ne zelim i necu nikad klasificirati.

    1. Da, to je možda ta prednost fotografije kao relativno mlade umjetnosti, nema u njoj toliko tih podjela. No sa druge strane čini mi se da je ljudi još ne cijene dovoljno, barem ne kod nas.

  13. Oh, I love such trips a lot. Those pictures are so appealing and interesting, I'm really glad for you that you just took time and had such a wonderful sea excursion. I also like the way you look in that dress, it fits you like a glove:)
    By the way, I was never actually fond of SF, but I absolutely understand those ones who love such reading. Books are something what impossible to replace and I do believe there is the right book for every one of us.

  14. Bodycon dress and sneakers- Freaking awesome :)!! You look great and beautiful shots.

    Aha, you studied literature, that explains your love for art, reading and writing. That is neat and very impressive. Hmm... the human mind is so complicated. I would hate to be a mind reader :)). I think we often lose ourselves in ourselves and our thoughts but sometimes what we see is just really simply what it is :).

  15. I don't really read science fiction but I know that people seem to love different genres. Books they love can elicit all sorts of feelings/emotions from the reader and therefore its very presumptuous to write off a whole genre of books. We all like our own type of books and therefore every book is just as important based on the effect it has on the reader. Books aside, that figure girl is amazing. And the view is just peacefully beautiful

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

A VISIT TO MOUNTAIN CHURCH OF SAINT ELIAS IN NATURE PARK BLIDINJE (MASNA LUKA)

I blogged about nature park Blidinje  a couple of times already, but I haven't told you who came to the idea of protecting this incredible area in the first place! It was back in 1993 that friar Petar Krasić set to the important work of turning this mountain area into a national park. Thanks to his efforts, in 1995 (only a few years later) Blidinje became a nature park that spans over three municipalities and 364 square kilometers. Today I'll show you where this friar dwells, in a house next to the mountain church of Saint Elias. Located at 1204 meters of altitude and surrounded by breath-taking nature, this mountain church is quite something. I've been meaning to write about this beautiful church of saint Elias the Prophet for ages, but something always got into way. I love mountain churches, they are so romantic. This one especially so!  Church of Saint Elias the Prophet is like an oasis in a deep forest. 
This wonderfully isolated church of St. Elias in Masna Luka is s…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …

WHAT TO WEAR TO A SUMMER WEDDING? A METALLIC DRESS OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Today I'm back with a wedding guest outfit idea. Summer hasn't officially started yet, but it sure feels like it has. If you're wondering about what to wear to a summer wedding, I'll give you some ideas. Let's start with an outfit I wore to a wedding party last Friday. As I already explained yesterday, I opted for a metallic dress. You already saw me wear this metallic wrap dress in a casual way, now you can see me wear it in a formal way. There is nothing easier than dressing up a metallic dress, just grab a clutch and a pair of heels and you're ready to go. Metallic and sequin dresses are a great choice for weddings, especially those of formal kinds. In Herzegovina, weddings are typically quite formal affairs. You're expected to get all dolled up, it would be a total faux pas to show up wearing anything resembling a casual outfit. Typically, the weddings parties in Mostar are more expensive, glamorous, luxurious and elaborate than your typical wedding p…
