O jednoj mladosti .....About one youth








Today I'm sharing (and translating) one of my all the favourite songs that came to life in 1973. Sang by a woman, who is for me not one in a thousand, but one in a billion. One and only, Josipa Lisac.

Danas sa vama dijelim jednu od svojih najdražih pjesama. Pjeva je pjevačica koja je za mene , ne jedna u tisuću, nego jedna u milijun. Jedna i jedina, Josipa Lisac.



                                   O jednoj mladosti .....About one youth 




Jedna mladost, jedan svijet nade                                             One youth, one world of hope
Raste tiho u srcu tvom                                                              Grows quietly in your heart
Drugi  za  ovaj svijet grade                                                      Others build this world for you
S malo prave istine u tom                                                         With only a bit of truth in it

Pričaju ti priče te                                                                     They tell you these stories
I svaka ima svoj sretan kraj                                                      And each of them has its happy ending
Al prešućuju da taj svijet krade                                                But they withheld that this world steals
Baš tvoga sunca sjaj                                                                 Your very own sun's shine

Jedna mladost, jedan san sreće                                                One youth, one dream of happiness
Al do nje još dalek, dug put                                                   But to it leads a distant and far away path
I dok srce na taj put kreće                                                       And while the heart takes that path
U svijet ocvao i žut                                                                 In the world decaying and yellow


Odjednom ćeš shvatiti sve                                                   Suddenly, you'll comprehend everything
Kako nigdje nema plamena tvog                                         How your flame is nowhere to be found
Poput mrtve rijeke svijet teče                                              Like a dead river the world flows
Bez cilja svoga                                                                     Without its purpose




             Tko zna, možda na me čeka neki drugi svijet                       

Who knows, maybe there is another world waiting for me

Tko zna i u mraku katkad nikne divan cvijet

Who knows, even in the dark sometimes a wonderful flower springs

Možda, tko zna, jedna od sretnijih

Maybe, who can tell, one of the more fortunates one

Jedna od tisuću

One in a thousand

Bit ću baš ja

                                                                       Shall be just me

                                                                       Tko to zna

                                                                      Who knows

  17. There are such songs which are so meaningful for us, full of wisdom and memories:) I have never heard this song, but I do like it. You are doing a great job with the translation, no wonder, your English is very well.
    I also enjoyed the pictures, they are so picturesque and natural. The earings are amazing, I literally have no doubt you made them;) They are in your personal style.
    Take care, Ivana!

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
