And so I had a strong desire to write that night

I love to travel in bus late in night. When there are nearly no people inside and the driver listnens to his favourite music, loud. It´s like you secretly and quietly wallk into his very own world. Lastly, when I went from my friend´s place in univerity dormitory at about 10 pm, the driver was listening to QUEEN. The bus was full of emptility and light and I was sitting and writting this down on one piece of paper I luckly found in my bag. Chewing gum with no flavour anymore was in my mouth just like the city in the bus I looked form window and saw the reflection of the the bus on the road outhere and so it seemed like the road was in the bus. How funny, some people in the bus, bus in the town, town in the bus, but still no people in the town. Only lights. Those from shopping center, bank, luminous advertisings and that Queen song. I don´t know the name of it, but it lighted, it highlighed the atmosphere. Fuck, I should have been studying biology that time. What everything I can do just not to study. rather think of this road that just ends. Just a few steps and I´m at home. Finally eat something and take my make-up off. I think I have enought of this mask for today... "I WANT TO BREAK FREE!"

"God knows I want to break free!"

Vencek

Hello with my widest smile to you! :) I´m just so so happy right now. It´s because of all the wonderful memories I have and the great feeling that came back to me after reminding myself about one unforgetable evening/night. Of course, I don´t remember everything, but I can recall the smell of my antiperspirant, the pain in my legs, that soft touch of powder on my sweaty body, ...no commercials, but I use Rimmel London Stay Matte powder, great one..., my nervous heart beating, the aroma of the hairspray the hair-dresser used on my curled hair, firm grip of my partner, taste of that disgusting (sorry, for using such an expression on food, but if you had a chance to try it, you´d think the same) polish chocolate and many other things, but above all I remember that great sentiment about all of us, my body and the music.

Sounds like a great occasion, doesn´t it? :D It´s all about this event, "Venček", that took a place in April, 5th. ...Yeah, yeah, I know, I have to explain what that "Venček" thing is. I´ll try my best... In Slovakia (don´t know how it is in other countries), students of high schools have this opportunity to attend courses of ballroom dancing and as we are (my class) students of gymnasium, it is a more like tradition to take it. So, we had 10 courses and then it all finished with this evening when we had something like ball, or however I can call it, we just performed what we have learnd to our paretns who paid all that, not really cheap, stuff (courses, clothing, tickets, gifts = for me it was nearly 200 €). That´s venček. If you´d like to see some more pictures or read more vistit my schoolmate´s blog.
We learned 10 dances! English and Viennese Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Blues, Jive, Cha Cha, Czech Polka, Twist and Country.
First we had a parade and exhibition of all dances. Then there was dance with parents and some dances performed by professionals. And after this, COMPETITION TIME! 30 pairs, only 6 of them could go ahead trouhg theese: English and Viennese Waltz, Polka, Jive and Cha Cha. Try to guess, who was in this "first 6"! :) So there was another round and after every dance number judge revealed the valuation. And according to it, my partner and me, we won the 3th place! ...I still can´t believe that!...
Most of the friends just rolle their eyes when I say I was surprised or that I really didn´t think it could happen, not after so much mistakes I made, but nevermind. It was definately thanks to my great partner. Just like my sister said: "He was leading and you were smiling" :) ...And isn´t it how it should be?...
Then there was a competition just for boys. One long track, girls running from one boy to another, having a short dance with them and pinning a small decorative ring-shaped wreaths (in Slovak "venček") on their suit. And the guy who had most of them, and so danced with the highes number of girls won. Would you believe me, if I say that MY partner won it? ...No matter if you would, he really did!... After that, it was boy´s turn to pick Miss Sympa by giving us flowers and chocolates, but it wasn´t a dancing competition, because if it were, we all would know who´d win it :) My great great friend Zuzike, who, surprisingly, won the 6th palce in the pair contest. And now, the most important thing for me was about to be told. I´m not hiding that my biggest ambition was to win as a creator of the prittiest "wreath". And I did! That was the most beautiful moment of all. ...I´m so fucking proud of myself!...
What happend next, I didn´t really care about, the ambitions have been satisfied. The end of the "ball", disco, saying goodbye, way to home and bed. Enough. Falling asleep as the happiest person in the world.
So that´s it. It wans´t such a big deal, but I felt like absolute lady. And you can see it in the pictures, it was all very elegant and classy, and I don´t know, I think most of us just like to enjoy that kind of atmophere once in a long time. And also, thanks  to pictures, this seems to be my first OUTFIT and make-up, hair and nails post :) As you can see, I was wearing beautiful black and cherryred dress from Bonprix, hair curled and pinned on side, nails painted on red, earrings from Lindex, regular foundation routine + red blush + Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in 09 "Rosseto" was a great choise for a long night. ...What elese should I say?...
Oh, yes! I must thank to my great partner Denis, who was the best leader and who I´d never thought I could get so far without. And for that wonderful bouquet of roses he gave to me. My height and my maladroid legs were a problem, but he faced all the troubles (those I mentioned and plus his own sore ankle) with courage and our venček was a manifique feast for eyes of all in the hall.

"And now, I teach you to dance, so you know what to do when you feel infinitely easy but also undeathably hard."

Adam František Kollár Part I.

"Slovak Socrates"

Today, I´m more than proud to present you this great man in every word meaning as this day is the 295. anniversey of his birth. He is quite lucky to belong to those slovak historical characters, about who children are still learning in school and so he is still remembered. And I´d like you, to know about him even more than some good friend could tell you :)
   Two Slovaks from Terchová
Adam František Kollár was born this day, again, in 1718 in Terchová (small village in central Slovakia now, formerly Terhely, Turózs county in Kingdom of Hungary). There have been born two great personages of our history in Terchová: A.F. Kollár and Juraj Jánošík (my post) who was hanged on a rib exactly 3 years and a month before Kollár´s date of birth. Two completly different (maybe even opposite) men as an image of Slovak nation. And now you can finally compare them on my blog. But anyway, he was born to the family of lower nobleman Matej Kolárik and his wife Regína Koláriková (born Myslovská).
   "Slovak I am and Slovak I´ll be"
If you have a chance to see some wrintings of his name, most of the time there is not used the slovak equivalent of it. What you can find is, in Latin Adamo Francisco/ Franciscus or German Franz or Hungarian Ferenc, all as Slovak František. Slovak language wasn´t officialy codified nor accepted in that time. Again, what is nice, that he was very proudly admitting his Slovak origin and developed studying of Slavic history (Slovaks belong to the group of Slavic nations).
   Education
As he is generally called "Slovak Socrates" the education is very important thing to talk about. In 1723 he moved to Banská Bystrica. First, he attended slovak jesuit colleges in Banská Bysrica, Banská Štiavnica and Trnava. This was all in Upper Hungary, now country of Slovakia. Then, in 1740 he started to study in Vienne. Philosophy, laws, classical and oriental languages. But he was learning all his life, thanks to it, he spoke 27 languages.
   Career
In years 1742 - 1745 he worked as a professor of jesuit high school in Liptovský Svätý Mikuláš. His career went on and he became a scribe of Imperial - Royal Library in Vienna in 1748. Then, very clever Kollár was named a second custodian and then the first custodian of IR Library in 1758. In this positions Adam´s work couldn´t end. He, for example, in 1756 completed and published Turkish Grammar Institutiones Linguae Turcicae from Fr. Mesganien - Meninski, or, he made a systematic catalogue of teological prints of the library. In years 1761 - 1762 he also published a collection of unknown documents, annals and chronicles, what get him in line with other well known scolars in the world.
 In 1763 he developed his plans for establishing a Hungarian (Kingdom of Hungary) University of Sciences and also published "Hungaria et Attila, seu de oringinbus gentis Hungariae" (Hugary and Attila, or about the origin of hungarian nation) by Mikuláš Oláh (Hungarian (again not today´s Hungary but Kingdom of Hungary) arcibishop and humanist intellectual of 16. century). Still, he was lecturing and translted Urbar by Maria Theresa (register of vassals´ obligations towards lords) to slovak language, as I mentioned above, the language wasn´t official (the official language of Kingdom of Hungary was hungarian) but it was a laguage of Slovaks, living in upper Hungary (now Slovakia) and without the translation they couldn´t understant it, as hungarian/ german laguage was total lingo for them. In this period, he also finished "De ortu, progressu et incolatu nations Ruthenicae in Hungaria"  about history of Carpathian Ruthenians and their church life.
His star was rising. In 1772, after the death of prefect Gerard van Swieten, Kollár was appointed as a chief of IR Library and from it, it took him only 2 years to became a director of IR Library, member of Iperial - Royal Court Study Commission - board of education and culture, director of all gymnasiums in the realm and, fianlly, Councilor at the Court of, herself, Maria Theresa!
 
What a man, ha? :D And this still isn´t the end! Just wait for PART TWO!!

March favourites

Heey :D I´m back, you see? And today I´d like to share with you, as I promised, stuff that crossed my way throught the cold days of Mach. So, shut up micheska and let´s get started :)

ҩ As a film lover it´s a must to begin with a FAVOURITE FILM of March, which is finally rewatched
  • Avatar (2009) I think I don´t have to explain why I love this movie, I watched it the last day of March, it was in TV, there was nothing better in so I told myself ´why not´ and I know I´ve done the right decision. All of those emotions I had form this movie that day in cinema in 2009 went back and I had a really hard time not to cry.
ҩ For FAVOURITE VIDEO I definitly choose this fan video, which I´m absolutely mad about. If you are a fan of Kingdom of Heaven, or at least you´ve seen the movie, I bet you will like the video. Or at least the song, which I personally love well, I´m not really sure If it´s because I love the video or becuse the song itslef or because I´m in love with Guy de Lusignan and the song totally shows his second side...
See for yourslef.

 
ҩ As the FAVORITE SOUNDTRACK of March I present you the one, having music all composed in the second half of 18th century by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Amadeus - Special Edition Soundtrack - Director´s Cut CD1+2 and why this? Well, because! And because I was listening to this album everytime I could. And, this is the best, it was my background music everytime I was having a nap. You should try this sometimes, to fall asleep and wake up while some nice music is playing. I admit, I´m listening to this soundtrack right now :)
    If you´d like to know more about soundtrack or the movie Amadeus (1984) , here you go You´ll hear from me about it, I swear
ҩ I have a question for you: Have you heard some classical music today? By a FAVOURITE TRACKS, from the same soundtrack I mentioned above, I´d like to feed your soul´s needs so I´m highlighting these three tracks:
  • Zaide; Aria, Ruhe Sanft - this one´s my all time favourite from the whole soundtrack, so I´d like you to listen to it, too, so you have some nice music in the background while reading this :) And plus, this is the track, the CD2 beggins with, so this is the melody I´m falling asleep with :)

  • Requirem Lacrimosa just few words: so wonderfuly dramatic, I bet you have alredy heard this melody, at least in the Simpsons (15x11) and when I die, I want this track being played on my funeral!
  • Piano Concerto In D Minor, K. 466, 2nd Movement beautiful and calm, just reminding me of the spring we are still waiting for, the sun and warm wind and peaceful singing of little birds, and me walking down the sun-drenched main streen and people are kind and they are smiling and wearing costumes in pale colours ....ach, the new world is waiting for us and we must be the ones who do the fist step as a prove that we want it and deserve it, let´s be the new generation who starts the revolution
ҩ What I always say most of the times just to myself, but nevermind is: Honor the history but be open for the modern as well. So there are my FAVOURITE SONGS of  March, which are much younger than Mozart´s geart works:
  • Lana Del Rey - Burning Desire I still don´t know, why the lyrics touched me so much well, maybe because I also do have burning desires for you, baby
  • Zaz - Dans ma Rue I was on one competition in one of music schools in my town, where students were singinig in French and there was a girl who sang the song, I knew it before and of course loved it before, but in March it looked like a obsession :)
  • Milan Lasica - Skôr než odídeš the slovak evergreen originally sung by František Krištof Veselý, it just gives you this feeling of classic black and white times, girls and women in dress and men in suits, nah, I´m really a fucking deep dreamer :D
ҩ FAOURITE EVENT is the drama competition in Wednesday 6th, which we won with the Bernard Shaw´s Pygmalion. It was a wonderful time we had, so much fun and not a nervous atmosphere, at all. And tomorrow, as we won, we continue and if we win, we step foraward to national round.
ҩ FAVOURITE PICTURES!!!!!

ҩ And last, but not least, FAVOURITE QUOTE is very well known for those, who have ever danced a tango :) This remins me of a post I have to do for you, guys. About our mine and my fiends´ not yours :P "ball" so I hope we´ll meet in the next article. Until then, stay inspired :)

Oh, March!

What the hell is this?! I´m asking. Is this....look at me....is this how March behave like? NO! It´s not! Do you hear me? Bad March, bad bad March.

So I woke up yesterday morning, looked from window and what didn´t I see? Snow. Yes, whole land the man´s eye can see is coverd by snow in April. And what´s happening right now is snow falling. Snowflake after snowflake, or better say thousands snowflakes after thousands and another thousands that one can´t even see forward.
   It´s Easter time, but hey, this is more like Christmas than any other holiday here in Slovakia. And nearly whole Europe. Not even in Christmas we had such a weather. It´s beautiful, I must admit. But it´s risky beauty. There, where I live the nature doesn´t endanger us like it does in other parts of Slovakia. The month was full of dangerous car crashes and deluges and accidents. Yeah, it´s sad, you know, when watching this in TV news everyday, but do you know what touches my heart the most? Than it gets people together. When I see all of them filling the sacks by sand and place them all around the flows of the rivers, old, young, the whole village, doing whatever they can, trying to help, no matter if their houses or properties are in danger or not. And they are still quite positive. It´s so impressive mark of that people are not heartless, even in this times...we all know what this times are, I don´t thing I have to explain how I see it :)
   I´m not complaining, really, I just wanted to express my opinion about the weather. I don´t really care about it because of myself. I do have warm clothes, we do have operative heating system in whole building, water, electricity, there are no problems with transport, just, I´m not cut off from the civilisation. What makes me worry are the influances of the weather, especially on nature. Poor animals are waiting for the spring, they are hungry and tired of all this. And what about farmers. They are trying whole year to cultive something and now, ah, I hope it won´t ruin them...And all those people and animals living on the streets. Those, who have nowhere to hide from the frost.
   Another thing that has made me worry is my new role in play of my two friends as one of them is going to enjoy skiing in Italy. So I´m learning the script during my free time. Well, when I am  free from my other free time activities.The role is quite funny to me, because I find the half of it like if it was written right for me and the other half right contre me :D I just hope I will do it and pass another competition we have on 11. April.
   This is just something that I´m even more exited about than the theatre, and so, Game of Thrones season 3! :O Now I can imagine all of you – GOT fans so so happy and you – let´s say not fans like „heavens, another one of them“ and I´m sorry, I don´t want to make anyone, who´s not already, sick of it. It´s just unspeakable joy :)
   And the last think  wantetd to highlight in this report, is: I´m quite inspired by this "month favourites" stuff so I decided to give it a try. No need to worry, it certainly isn´t going to be about cosmetics and make up, but about thing I love endlessly – ART! + culture, history... So look forward to the next post. :)

Juraj Jánošík

17. March 1713 was the day, when Juraj Jánošík, in a cause of banditing, was sentenced and hanged on rob. That makes this day a 300 anniversery of his executon, so I decided to devote todays article to him.

Juro Jánošík, how we Slovaks call him famillary, is one of the most significant icons of Slovak culture. He is one of the few characters in Slovak history, who is still rembered and very popular. I can say myslef, as a native, that every child knows him, no matter what, and until he is in our minds, as an enteral hero of miserable Slovak nation, he will survive. In Slovakia, we have a wonderful (not that I like to hear it) phrase for "miserable Slovak nation" - "zbedačený slovenský ľud", very common phrase, especially in historical themes.
   Juraj Jánošík was born in Terchová (Terhely, small village in central Slovakia now, formerly Turózs county in Kingdom of Hungary) before 25. 1. 1688, as this is the date of his baptism in village register of Varín (Várna), because Terchová didn´t have its own rectory in the time. He comes form a liege family and from his childhood, he worked with his parents (as most of the habitants of Upper Hugary - now Slovakia) on lands owned by Ján Jakub Lowenburg from Teplička nad Váhom (Vágtapolca). As 18 yeas old young man, he was recruited to rebellion against the emperor Karol - Carolus IV. (as king of Hungary Karol III.) and all Habsburgs led by František - Ferenc II. Rákóczy. The rebellion failed in the battle near Trenčín (Trencsén) in 1708 and Jánošík fled home. But the punishmet was waiting wor him, and so, to serve imperal army for a few years. You are maybe surprised by such a low punishment for, in every word meaning, treason, but the emperor knew that most of the rebels were actually just young men forced to join the revolt. Anyway, they made him a prison guard of popular highwayman, Tomáš Uhorčík, who they finally caught. But you know, the word gave a word and before long, they both ran away from Bytča Castle, they both were prisons of in 1711. The legendery adventure can start.
   Uhorčík convinced Jánošík to join his group of bandits and soon, after Uhorčík left, he became a captain. With his group, they raided merchants and lords in Trenčín, Orava, Liptov counties as well as in Poland and Morava. After a year military caught him in a pub where Uhorčík was innkeepering under the name of Martin Mravec. In March 1713 they caught him again. He was quite lucky to have a court hearing in Liptovský Mikuláš (Liptószentmiklós) and an advocate but that didn´t help him. The mitigating circumstance were his young age, that he was the youngest in the group, that they didn´t kill or hurt anybody, and that his crimes weren´t as horrible as crimes of others bandits, but as I said, it didn´t help him. Jánošík was sentenced to death in the most painful way - hang on a rib. He was only 25 in the time.

And that´s all we know. Anything else you think you know is probably, the most sure just a legend. The legend that was created in the time of the strong national oppression of not-hungary nations in Kingdom of Hungagy by people. And then, during the Slovak National Revival by national revivalist who was trying to do absolutely everything that was possible to rise the courage and awareness in slovak people. That was the time of romantism in our literature. The most popular oeuvre is Smrť Jánošíkova (Death of Jánošík) by Ján Botto. And that´s why we, Slovaks and Poles and Czechs see this man as Slovak Robin Hood. Who stole from rich and give it to poor. Because if the legend is true or not, we needed it. We needed a hero like this. To survive with a flame in heart and Slovak language on tonge.

The Icon of Juraj Janosik: More of a tradition than a history, more hero than a man.

February, thanks for courage!

God must be loving me!
Yes, I feel loved. I feel loved by the new fresh spring air, by my family, by my guinea pig, by the "old good times", by my friends, by slovak and english language, by my hair, by all the world! I know it´s March already, but it was Febuary that gave me courage to make the brave decisions. 
So, where to start? It happend so much in Febuary. Well, let me open my notebook...  this is another great reason to have one exept for feeling like a lady...
I passed my own psychological test. In the beginng of the month, in school we had an opportunity to do psychological test to find out, what are we good in and what to decide to do in the future. It took about two hours maybe even less and it was just testing our verbal, logical and memory ability. Try to guess how it ended for me. Exactly how I sussposed! The "man" I have no idea how to call him told me precisely what I thought about myself. That I am pedant, stickler, artist,  inteligent oh stop it you... and very uncommon person... that I should continue in art and history studying and very possibly work film as an art - supervisor. Fine, those were my expectations, I told myself sitting on jumpy chair in front of him. But then he told me to become a teacher or a journalist and I started to feel precariously. The tests were supposed to help make people sure about what to do in their future but acutally, it made me ask myself  that dangerous question: "What if..."
But I have an answer for one "What if..." What if I didn´t go to ´revival´? I definitely wouldn´t meet so nice people and so unpleasant as well and spend great 2 days with them. From now on I´m looking forward to my confirmation.
Aaaand now, the most expected news at least for me it was our school english drama group which I joined this year and we started preparation of performing Pygmalion by Bernard Saw in February. I was really not afraid to say scared of how am I going to handle this and work with so many unknown people and play with them but we did it absolutely fabulous, we won the competition and we are getting ready to "higher level". Actually I don´t really care if we win or not, we had so much fun and it was a wonderful experience for me. This definitely deservs its very own article
Nah, it was really a long month not only because of these events but also because of the spring holydays we have in Slovakia. Long wished free week ´recharged my batteries´ like we prefer to say in Slovakia. Well, February, thanks for courage, support, rest, confidence and the question:

"What´s to become of me?"

Dr. Ján Vilček

Today is a very special day for at least one person. And that´s why I chosed him for this day person I admire. President Barack Obama named Ján T. Vilček, MD, PhD, a recipient of the prestigious National Medal of Technology and Innovation and gave him this price today, 1.2.2013. 

"I´m proud to honor these inspiring American innovators," President Obama said in a statement released  by the White House. "They represent the ingenuity and imagination that has long made this Nation great - and they remind us of the enormous impact a few good ideas can have when these creative qualities are unleashed in an entrepreneurial enviroment.

   National Medal of Technology and Innovation is the nation´s highest honor for technological achivement, bestowed by the president of the United States on America´s leading innovators, who have made lasting contributions to America´s competitiveness and quality of life.  

   And why am I mentionig this? Well, because Dr. Vilček is a first Slovak who won this price and another prove of an often repressed fact that also in a such a small piece of land the greatest peolpe can by born. 

   Ján Vilček was born 17. June 1933 in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia). As a child he experienced World War II.. Slovak National Uprising and two years until the end of a war in a house of a very brave Slovak couple hidden with his, originally Jewish, family. Then they moved back to Bratislava.
Vilcek prize has a marvelous design
   In 1957 he completed a medical school. He joined the Institute  of Virology, Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava as a research scientist. He was succesful in his work, married a Marica Vilček but the socialitic regime didn´t fit him. Both emigrated to the USA in 1956 where he joined NYU School of Medicine as a Assistant Professor of Microbiology.
   Vilček is being recognized for his pioneering work on interferons and contributions to the develoment of therapeutic monoclonal antobodies. His work was instrumental in the developmet of the anti - inflammatory drug Remicade, now widely used for the treatment of, for example, Crohn´s disease but the most famos - arthiris. About 2 million patients have been cured thanks to this medicine.
   But the great oeuvre hasn´t ended here. Vilček and his wife, an art historian, founded the Vilcek Foundation in 2000 which apprize another immigrats who contribute the professional, academic and artistic life in the US. In 2005 he donated 105 million dollars to NYU School of Medicine for research. In 2010 he was awarded the Slovakia Goodwill Ambrassador in Bratislava, as a Slovak who has made significant contributions while living aboard.

If you are interested watch this great video. It´s in Slovak with English subtitles :)

And with me it´s 6001

Woke up. Short walk in apatment. Back to bed. Turned up notebook. Browsed facebook, youtube, EGW and then my blog. Something new. Already?!
6000 and 1 wiews my dears. Not a big deal? For me, it is! I just don´t know how it happend so quickly. It´s not a great change, but still, you know, I feel responsibility. I must take care of this blog more, and write better articles, maybe more often. But this was just somethink what gave me a reason to write, so I´m not gonna care about this now and jump to something more interesting. More interesting than history? How dare I?
The year begins in good way. Maybe not that good, but it doesn´t beat me so I appreciate it. :)
I´m just trying to say, that my worries haven´t fulfilled yet, but I still live in the fear that once they will. So my happiness is more a fear and appreciation that everything goes like this.
Yes, I´m talking about our dance lessons, too. I thought of it as a hell, but actually, it´s not so bad. Yes, the photographer said that me with my partner were the funniest couple and he had to take a photo of us, however I still think, it can be worse. I´m not the best, but not the worst one neither and those who judge should look at themselves first. It just needs a time and practise I´m sure I´ll dance a way better.
And there is another funny think. I´ve just realised well, it was yesterday, or a day before that I´m wearing one coat all winter. I don´t know why. I have 2 beautifuly warmy winter jackets and 2 two coats but I´m still wearing this particular one. My friends are having fun of it, that I look like a Snata Claus or a Redhood or even, don´t know If you saw a movie Shindler´s list, but one my friend said that I looked like the girl in the red coat. I found it interesting to mention it, because it´s a International Holocaust Remembrance Day today. 
Another reason why to be happy with what you have. Of course, we should aim hight, but never be hungry for more. Work for more! Let´s be grateful for everithing because society is in a such bad condition that this ´everithing´ can be taken from us very, very easily.

Oh, January...so we meet again!

Again! 2013 had an hour to begin with January. With a hot Rooibos tea without sugar and used tissues all around me, I recognize we are in the second half of the coldest month in a whole year. I wake up into my cold room, I leave home into the cold world, I enter the cold school, sit on my cold wooden chair listening about cold weather influences  on georelief and the sound of the snow under my feet. Then I take a cold bus back home and lie down sleep into my cold bed.  However, during all that time, I think about the hottest passions. How beautiful it would be to just take a brush and panit all this dying world? How? Sinful! How do I dare to think about that?! It snows now. Snowflake after snowflake, gravity place each one on the others oh, thanks a lot Jožka, now I look at this miracle in your physical way, and there you go. Creating lands of untouched innocence. Covering thick footprints. Hiding the beaten track, incorrect paths, wrong decisions. Isn´t it a chance to start again? To fix  our mistakes? I can see some symbolism in this Isn´t it wonderful to see everything around us coverd by this white veiling of purification? Maybe we all feel much more cleaner by the influence of it. That´s why we adore it so much the look, at least.  So I´m saying, thank to you, January, for making me temperate and for freezing my passions, so I can save them for worse times.

I send thousend kisses to Martin Benka, Napoleon, Henri de Toulouse - Lautrec, Miloš Forman and Ladislav Hudec

And for you Kollár, Bernolák, Bajza, Fándly, Rudnay, Šafárik, Hollý, Hamuliak and for all in Štúr´s band - thank you for what you have done for our nation but still - Fuck Yourselves - !

with love micheska
