Peter Rabbit and friends

I watched on Friday the movie 'Miss Potter' from telly about the life of illustrator Beatrix Potter and I was carried away with rabbits wearing blue velvet coats, cunning mice, frogs with fishing rods and newts in stylish vests.

It was quite a nice movie starring Renée Zellweger (though I always will imagine her as Bridget Jones) and at some point it was also very sad. I really liked the animated drawings, bunnies coming to life and goose honking. Also I wasn't aware how much she has worked with wild life preservation in Lake District.

So here's a little illustration about the Peter Rabbit and some of his friends.

Snake Dance

Here's a little illustration of one of my favorite goddesses, minoan Snake Goddess. Statues representing her are found from ancient city of Knossos, beautiful Crete. I recently watched 'Clash of the Titans' in 3d cinema and I was very delighted to see in one of the interior scenes a banquet hall dancers wearing similar minoan style dresses and headgear.

Here's a nice info site of a Snake Goddess statues and her meaning in minoan culture.

Dancing Cloud

I chatted with a fellow trainer in gym who likes Indians and later on that week I was inquired about Indian history and life style by a three year old (cleverest kid in the world I must add). I realised I know really little about Indian tribes, folklore and history thought this has always interested me.

Random pics

I have had a horrible, snot filled flu from outer space whole week. If my vital signs of life start fading and suddenly I seem to be craving for my fellow people's brain please finish me off with a shovel right away. :)

Lizard

We saw a little viviparous lizard in the woods today. I saw something dart over the mossy cliff and it was this guy, probably trying to catch some warmth from the unpredictable April sun. Reminded me of V.A. Koskenniemi poem about this creature:

Sun kevätkylmillä ma kohtasin
mun nuoruuteni keväimessä kerta,
kun omaa viluani värjötin --
sa olit samaa värisevää verta.

Ja lämpöä sun anoi sydämes
ja onnen puoleen pelokkaan ja vakaan
sa kylmyydestä käänsit katsehes --
ja mull' ei ollut antaa kumpaistakaan.

Sun tietäs maailmalla tunne en
ja oudot ovat sulle minun tieni.
Sa seuralainen kevätkylmien,
sua usein muistan, sisilisko pieni!

:)

Mr. Fox got it wrong

Poor pink flamingos went all to pink flamingo heaven in Korkeasaari Zoo yesterday when a rogue fox managed to get inside their pen and did what foxes are bound to do if they are hungry. Sad tale but I hope eternal sunny days by the pool and palm trees to those flamingos.
