art rules

Tonight, life is good. Whether it was yesterday or will be tomorrow, will be another matter, of course.
Anyway. Tonight was pretty nice, especially in a cultural way. After a longish sort of while i felt good about intellectual activity again. I went to see what they call the annual school theatre festival. Or that is what i believe it was, but i'm not very well informed. Some of you might know that i myself have been (and hope to be in the future, too) involved with theatre at an amateur level. I've written and directed some plays, always enjoying the process. And at times, the outcome has not been that bad, either. Today i got to combine my love of theatre with my love of photography. Which of those is the bigger or more important one remains to be debated, but today was the first time over a long period of time that i did not feel uncomfortable taking photographs. Whether the resulting photographs will be any better than my regular botchings as of late, will remain to be seen, but i doubt it. Of course, the reader of this blog will see the results sooner or later.
Watching theatre from an outside perspective was refreshing and, most importantly, inspiring. To my own shame i must say that i do not go to the theatre half as frequently as i should. And today i got to see some ten plays, even if they were only some 10 minutes in length. I took photographs of some of them too. And i even had some ideas. Maybe i'm getting my inspiration back, maybe this was just a temporary flash of enlightenment. In either case, on my short way home i felt that art was good, life beautiful, and the sky amazing.

Bottomline is: Art owns. It inspires. (woot).

Yours truly.

what it all could have been...

what it all could have been..., originally uploaded by payl.

Well, this is one of the shots i took at T's returning party and it sucks. I wish i could say more about the party but the situation seems to have gotten rather delicate so i will politely "keep my trap shut".
As for other news, estonia has obviously detached itself from mainland europe and drifted to the equator. I wouldnt be amazed to find us bordering Jamaica by tomorrow. It is that hot.

get down! get down again!

So i was reading my old posts from a year ago and tought there was something i liked about the quirky and twisted english i used in my posts. It made sense to me (i could read it and understand what i had meant to say a year ago, that is) and i even noticed a few comments here and there (and i am the comment whore) and so i figured i might try to squeese out another text post.And now that i even know how to spell the word which, all is good, no?
Who knows, maybe i'll be back writing full time? Well, probably not anyway, because i suspect it is just the abundance of free time one has to deal with in summer.

So, what i wanted to go on to say today was something about my car. Now you see i have run into a bit of trouble because i havent really posted anything since i don't know how long ago. Thus, most of you lot do not know i have a car. Well, i mean to say that you would not know if most of you lot (and deciding by the statistics hardly anyone reads this blog anymore anyway) did not know me in person anyhow. And being that most of you do know me in person, most of you know that i have a car. I will go as far as to say that many of you actually contributed when the funds were being raised. Ask K, for he knows better.

Well, what i wanted to say is that the car has an interesting personality. I would say things about her, but i love her, and besides, being an Estonian, i should follow the proverb that has to do with horses being given as gifts and looking into their mouths and whatnot.
So i will just state that i will officially try to repair the headlights as soon as possible. And the battery. And i will stop there until something else falls off or apart because trying to fix everything about her would take more time than i will be given on this earth. As long as she runs, it is fine. And even more so when i get my new seatcovers installed (expect photos).

So, there you have it, ladies and gentlemen, another rant about pretty much nothing at all. I figure i almost like doing this.

Damnit. I'm up at half past one blogging. Blogging. This can't be good.
