Interview with Adriana

A few days ago I was contacted by the high school from where I graduated back in 2007, for an interview. I spent about my whole life in this school, and it is the place where I learned so many things. A highly scientific place that gave me the key to the world I am now. But of course, it took more than the key to get where I am, the support of family point to me into the direction of the door and standing in front of it I found the courage to go through it within me.

As it is natural, I outgrew the school many years ago, and I have changed and evolved in a million different aspects since I last stepped in the educational institution, but it is certainty satisfying to be mentioned in their media. I hope I can inspired the current generation and that my achievements can be a model to look up to, but mostly I hope that I am over-passed and that new limits are set.


Both the article and the video are in Spanish, but you should be able to see the automatic translation.

… and here is the interview in YouTube. The full interview was about 1 hour, but you can imagine that it had to be reduced, and it is now about 6 min.

About Poetry and About You

For G,


About Poetry and About You

By Adriana


The sieving of feelings,
The choosing of elegant words,
The juggling of meanings,
A window to the realm of thoughts.

I dare say this about poetry,
And I dare say this about you,
Like an embellishment of the real,
Or an enrichment of what is in view.

A sieve for the good attain,
Confident of the righteousness,
Barring out the ugly or vain,
Emphasazing the graciousness.

Yes! Your eyes see only the beauty,
While your lips express the ambrosian,
And your voice rejoices with the duty,
Of the precision of your words chosen.

As a gazer of your elegant mind,
To a treasure I daren’t compare it,
Since trapped in a chest it can hide,
And it is more like a window to admire it,
Open to an infinity horizon beyond,
Where chivalrous words gallantly dwell,
Matching your eyes, smiles and hair blond,
You are the poetry with whom in love I fell.

Mariendome – Photography #3

Linz, July, 2018

This photography session of the cathedral was taken during the night walk promoted and carried our by Pangea. The tour started at 8pm and for about one and a half hours we are taken to the higher levels of the church, both inside and outside. We were lucky to have such a breath-taking sunset to accompany us.


This is the third part of the photography session, you can find the first and second part in the following links:

 


Before starting the tour

The windows

The images in the cathedral tell the story of Linz. However, a few years back, there were in need of cleaning and restoration, but when they put them back, they made a mistake. Can you spot it? If you can’t check two pictures below.

 

 

 

The windows are magnificent. The only color used to make them, is brown paint, any other color you see here, is the color of the glass. Imagine the work!!

 

 

The painted details are better appreciated here. 

 

 

 

This is considered to be the most beautiful in all the cathedral. That is why I chose it to be the header of this post.

I hope you enjoyed these photography sessions. The cathedral is wonderful and in case you are not sure where it is, here is a map.

Mariendome – Photography #2

Linz, July 27, 2018

The view of Mariendome is exquisite, even from far away. But once you enter the cathedral, you are transported to another world.


The cathedral was built in Gothic style, the towers as high as possible to reach the heavens.

After you check out the pictures, you will  see that it is a very large church, as a matter of fact, it is the largest in Austria. However, it is not the tallest. At the time of its construction it was not allowed to be taller that Stephandome in Vienna, thus it is 2 mts. shorter.

(I also have some photography of Stephandome, I’ll be posting soon.)


This is the second part of Mariendome’s photography session, you can find the first part here:

(Disclosure: All the photographs were taken by me, Adriana, but I am still figuring out how to watermark them all. Suggestions accepted!)


As I wrote before, the cathedral can be seen from almost all sides of the city, but here is the map, in case you need it.

Here is how it looks from Linz Castle

Mariendome – Photography #1

Linz, July 26, 2018

Part of discovering the wonderful city of Linz is marvelling by the wonderful Mariendome, or as you may also find it in dear Google, New Cathedral,

Here is the location of the cathedral, although, you might not need it, since it can be seen from almost sides of the city.

My admiration for the beauty of this place is such, that I have decided to make several photography sessions.

After 100 days of flowers rhymes compilation,

this lovely serie comes today to its final creation.

But how to properly end this long publication

after so many hours of work and imagination?

 

With a rhyme to all flowers, I am choosing to conclude,

although I know there are many I didn’t include,

but please do not think of me as picky or rude,

a poem to each flower is a quest of  large magnitud.

 

But flowers are a never-ending art to admire,

with their many shapes, colours and sizes to inquire

their presence will my poet heart always inspire,

so perhaps one day, I’ll make a new series when required.


 

Petal Verses

By Adriana

 

Waking up in the morning with lilies’ sweet scent,

then discovering coquette roses were also invited,

while the tender hydrangeas insist the day to spend,

and the playful tiger lilies have my day delighted.

 

These good morning bouquet was only the start,

later, the most beautiful columbines I’ve ever seen,

the man I love knows how to spoil my heart,

and with the flowers I like, make me feel like a queen.

 

Out on the street, flowers, which names I am not sure I know,

but all together with the giggly daisies, they greet me heartily,

I just wish they would last even when there is snow,

but it is ok, because my orchids are waiting at home eagerly.

 

In an instant the call of my family with a smile on their face

holding yellow chrysanthemums, just for me on this lovely day,

with the gesture wishing me joy, success and a life of grace,

and with the flowers making this day special since it is my birthday.

After 100 days, how do I feel? 

 

Have you even been to a magnificent play?

when at the end all actors come out in their own way,

waving thank you and good-bye but the audience stays,

hoping for an encore to aplaude and hurray!

 

Today, on the last day I am part of that crowd,

with all the flowers and poems on the stage so proud.

while a sense of accomplishment keeps singing aloud,

and with this last poem, I know this verses have finally bowed.


Thank you for reading!

Honourably Awesome

By Adriana

 

A red peony in full blossom,

don’t you think it is awesome?

 

A peony to bring richness and wealth,

but most importantly, honour and health.

 

A flowers highly respected in the great asian nations,

not only by its beauty but by its medical applications.

 

Now, without any further complication,

let me rejoice in deep celebration,

’cause tomorrow is the last of the compilation,

hoping it has fulfilled your expectations.
