Rainy days

This weather is weird - it should be freezing and snowing - it is January, is it not?

Yesterday we visited an exhibition with my daughter. Bohuslav Reynek, painter, poet and translator. His art is quiet, deep and comforting. His life was quiet, too. As a believer he was persecuted by the communists, he was not able to exhibit his paintings and publish his poetry. He lived in a small village with his family, and despite all the persecutions I think he had a very happy and fullfiled life.
Hi died in poverty and almost forgotten. Today his work is valued and loved by many…

Zátiší
Telátko v podmraku jeslí.
Stín je vzal okolo šíje,
stíny mu zlato snesly
a lampa odhání je…

Stín se mu dotýká čela,
sláma mu šeptá do uší,
v loktuši
zlaté jako plášť anděla-

co, nikdo netuší.

      Marie, our weather is just as weird as yours. We now have a little snow again - it stopped just a little while ago -but the temp is supposed to rise again to 8C later on Monday when there will be rain:) all our snow will be gone again lol. Love these shots in the rain, especially the one in which you captured the rain coming down! excellent photos:)

      Prague in the rain...
      I keep a wonderful memory of this city where I visited in 1992... :)
