Draga, uslovna sloboda
Amazon je moj putokaz.
Iznad vremena velike tuge.
Zatežem bore u vlažnoj
delti. Oživljena vatrom,
Bez ruže u zubima.
Na tri ćoška.
za sobom.Ne starim
kao katedrala .
Vezana za manastir
kao pčela.Ni stara
ni mlada: gledam
Sav taj bes.
Teža od srednjeg
veka. Dodajem nulu.
(Iz knjige „Poludragi“, Gradac, 2010.

This quality of writing- possibility to keep hints and fragments of ourselves the way we were once is amazing. So your writing platform, your intellectual, sensual and spiritual self is capable to freeze deep your personal self,and you can come back to your memories and play with vex figure, who has your face as much as you need.
This quality of writing is why we need written testimonies - no meter are they fiction or some other kind of expression.
The writing is the only shelter to hide from very hurtful truth saying you can never go back home.
So now I speak with those ghosts of mine, remembering the archeology of building story but also re-living those emotions and encountering real people, obviously tattooed in my life deeply. How nice I can live and walk again through this little street of my life. Hear again those words and sounds, seeing all those faces in the same material and emotional position as they were arranged decade ago.
Better then the movie, better then life. This possibilty also neutralize so often used phrase how life doesn't have redo. Oh,it does!
Isn't it very strong part of writers playfulness and instinct/ to go back and sniff around footprints of distant memories.
Of, course it doesn't have to do with intimate memories but also writing can bring ball back to you/us , in case we are talking about recreating some big, historic, mutual experiences.
Seems I am now entering anthropology of writing, but it has to do with mystical part of my inner voice.
I see now how every blog post starts innocently and in the end not so naive and innocent.

The year 2010 has been one of the most exciting and surprising ones, so I am anxious to see and hear from 2011:) Dear, could there be more of THIS? Wow,I will keep ready and steady 363 days to realize that.
On writing - Hm,I did published second book of poetry, after so long and I will try to be quicker considering poetry/ cause the way I read, I hear,I infuse words in my mind is of poetic sort/ I realized this morning while reading Voltaire's Dictionary. In my mind this Cristal cut cynicism and, lets say rationalism/ sounds like bunch oh verses, poems in prose. And I've picked up few things for good, besides this elegant, smart, cool attitude of his. No one can be so arrogant as French thinkers and Voltaire is one of the kind.BUT he is good, extremely modern. He would devastate modern world of media and communication/ we would never be able to put it back together, if by any chance he could be reborn.And he would be great TV presenter.
Yes, dear old world I am absolutely positive it is time for the classics/ I am into Voltaire, and very good writer friend is for long time obsessed with Montaigne/ this one is much on vogue in the global perspective.I hope he will provide essay on Montaigne soon and I am sure he will devastate but also repair current Serbian landscape of madness, sadness and lost track.
French rationalism was my huge building block, as teenager I enjoyed on and on this beautiful way of thinking in old family library of my gran-gran pap's. Loved them all and felt at home reading timbre but sobering words of those guys, seems I was a bit serious girl.(OK,I had a crash on Marc Bolan, so i was not completely lost) Now, as fully adult it is time to party again with all of theme Montaigne, Voltaire,La Roschefoucauld which perhaps has to do with my journalistic side. In fact writer and journalist do connect in this kind of writing.
Seems I am starting to write blog for real.
New thing, thank you 2011!
PS I am overjoyed when machines and spellcheckers go mad with this French names, oui!
