Elena Shalina /Russia/
Russian Contemporary Art
Со мной, с моей свечей вровень
Миры расцветшие висят.
Level with me and my candle
The flourished worlds are hanging/
In gleicher Hoehe mit mir
und meine Kerze
Haengt die bluehende Welt.

Is this road already waiting for us?
Is this a step we are supposed to take?
A thousand questions with no answers ...A midnight guest

"The Elbe, being a principal Bohemian river, flows on it's way between the Bohemian town Decin and the German Pirna through a deep meandering canyon, fringed by sandstone walls and towers.
It is from the fringe walls that plenty of magnificent views on the river are avialable..." /from Guidebook/
Yes, wonderful views!
PIZA, FLORENCE, MOUNTAINS ... /Italy, March' 98/
1 | 2 | 3 The old familiar sights of ours
Took marmarvellous shapes; strange domes and towers
Rose up where sty or corn-crib stood,
Or garden-wall, or belt of wood;
The well-curb had a Chinese roof;
And even the long sweep, high aloof,
In its slant splendor, seemed to tell
Of Piza's learning miracle ...John Whittier
FOLLOW ZEN-STONES /Vyborg, April' 98/
1 | 2 Of course you're always, and never
Alone. -Like leaves on bushes,
pebbles on stone
Woke up that morning on the floor
In a foreign house, and knew
Nothing, -just like any any other dayDan Turell
FOLLOW TREES CLOSELY /St.Petersburg's suburbs, spring' 98/
1 | 2 The quarrel of the sparrows in the eaves,
The full round moon and the star-laden sky,
And the loud songs of the ever-singing leaves,
Has hid away earth's old and very cry...William Yeats
