Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:

'#VAMPIRES IN DALMATIA: THE EXAMPLE OF THE VILLAGE OF ŽRNOVO ON THE ISLAND OF #KORČULA IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY' hrcak.srce.hr/138625

This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif' hrcak.srce.hr/200179

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)' researchgate.net/publication/33…

இவருக்கு நிகரான ஒரு கவிஞரும் இல்லை பாடலாசிரியரும் இல்லை..

வாலி எனும் மாயக்காரன்.
உலக நீதி 👇👇

புத்தன் இயேசு காந்தி பிறந்தது பூமியில் எதற்காக
தோழா ஏழை நமக்காக
கங்கை யமுனை காவிரி வைகை ஓடுவது எதற்காக
நாளும் உழைத்து தாகம் எடுத்த தோழர்கள் நமக்காக

அபிராமி சிவகாமி கருமாயி மகமாயி
திருக்கோயில் தெய்வங்கள் நீதானம்மா
அன்னைக்கு அன்றாடம் அபிஷேகம் அலங்காரம்
புரிகின்ற சிறுத்தொண்டன் நான்தானம்மா
பொருளோடு புகழ் வேண்டும் மகனல்ல தாயே உன்
அருள் வேண்டும் எனக்கென்றும் அது போதுமே

HOW TO BE A #POET
by #WendellBerry
(to remind myself)

Make a place to sit down.
Sit down. Be #quiet.
You must depend upon
#affection, reading, knowledge,
skill — more of each
than you have — #inspiration,
work, growing older, patience,
for #patience joins time
to eternity.
2of6

Any #readers
who like your #poems,
doubt their judgment.
3of6

#Breathe with unconditional breath
the unconditioned air.

Shun electric wire.

#Communicate slowly.

#Live a three-dimensioned life;

stay away from screens.

On #InternationalMountainDay, we encourage you to read about the historic struggle forest dwelling #Adivasi communities in Odisha have been waging to protect their #Niyamgiri mountain from rapacious, extractive bauxite mining.bit.ly/2P9d5I0 bit.ly/38ro72V ImageImage
While they won a landmark victory against mining in 2013, the threats to their ancestral land remain. Listen to Rajkishor Sunani, #poet-#activist, sing about this at the #Niyamgiri festival. bit.ly/35bA7Up @puruthakur Image
Furthermore,the #RTI Act & #ForestRightsAct that have legally empowered such indigneous struggles & tried to redress historic injustices meted out to them is under threat.Forest dwelling communities have been mobilising against this:bit.ly/36rBQVA bit.ly/2sgnNn8 ImageImageImage

This year: 200th #anniversary of the #publication of #Goethe's great work of #art "#WestöstlicherDivan".#Heisenberg memorized #love-#poems from the book while working on #QuantumMechanics in #Heligoland.
#Schubert it to #music:
The #poem sung by #ElisabethSchwarzkopf is on p. 166 of the 1819 edition and reproduced below, side-by-side with the 1914 translation by #Irish critic and #poet Edward Dowden (1843-1913).The translation is close, but NOT accurate (as Dowden tries to recreate rhyme and rhythm).

Remark. The unclear phrase 'zu jemandes Herzen sprechen' was
allegedly utilized by #Heidegger in at least one letter sent to
#HannahArendt in 1925: cf. lisa.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/ich_muss_heute….

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

Today is the 297-th #birthday of #German #poet Mathias Etenhueber (1722-1782). Getting ever poorer with increasing age, he produced a large amount of #poetry in #Latin and #German, often for specific occasions in #Bavaria. In despair, he even tried to exploit..
.. the spectacle of public #executions to draw attention to his work, by writing moralizing verses commenting on specific delinquents, then displaying them publicly near the official public proclamation of the respective death sentence.
..
..
The last PUBLIC #execution in the #kingdom of #Bavaria happend as late as 1861-11-09, when a farmhand was #guillotine​d because he had robbed and killed a Bavarian #farmer. The last public execution WITH A SWORD in #Bavaria happened as late as 1854-05-12 when 19-year old..

Objective #art is possible only when somebody has attained to a higher plane of being; it is created by those who have reached the peak. They can see the peak and they can see the valley both. They can see the height, the beauty, the sickness and the ugliness of #humanity.
They can see deep down in the dark valleys. They can manage to create some devices which will help the people who are crawling in the darkness to reach the sunlit peaks. Their art will be just a device for your inner #growth, for #maturity.
Picasso’s pictures are subjective art. Seeing a painting by Picasso … he has not considered you, who are going to see the painting. You are not taken into account at all. He has simply vomited his own madness on the canvas. It is simply a vomit.
