Daily walks are really popular around here and infact you can see all kinds of people on their way to something. On their way to or from work, back home from a grocery expedition, chilling along with other family members, coming back from school or even on a bike ride since the wide sidewalk is alined to the cycling path; in addition others are waiting or getting off the train on the old railway track in line with the cycling path.
Wandering and browsing around my neighbor makes me feel very energetic and happy. There are plenty of colorful stuff to look at, some traditional some modern. I m in love with both and with the taste of balance which you can see thru them. Cool and positive traditions should be noticed carefully and enjoyed as much as possible because they represents the projection of human beings to create a healthy society. There is lots to see every time i go downtown and watch the people and the places. they ar never the same, there is always some tiny difference, some improvement or something to discard. Usually i have iPhone on hand but every time i promise myself to bring the high quality camera with zoom and great lens. Hope you will enjoy these quick shots took on a rushey afternoon weekend break.
A common “drink and snacks grocery” located at street level. The order is nice to watch.
Somebody is going for a delivery soon, it’s tea-time. Somebody else is going for a city walk.
Somebody else is going for a city walk.
There is usually lots of work in progress on the streets. Holes, wooden tables resembling tiny bridges on sidewalk, workers busy to fix and crash pieces of cement or other materials. we actually live in a no stop legoland!
It’s really fantastic to roam inside the small streets too, they normally connect two main roads or have a dead end. They carry some interesting details of some job at some point. Like a wooden ladder left on a wall. Or a bike, well, a classic here. Or a table with the today menu for a lunch set or dinner.
There is much wore to visualize, some windows, some other street scene with people. It’s a great neighbor, very lively fun and energetic. Here are some people and a street seller with its treasures for the sewing box. Finally again the order of the colors, a detail of neatness.
Getting involved in different activities is one of the most famous way to empower the selfish personality. We are very happy to succeed and improve our artistical, intellectual or physical skills. Such a fast competition today and this competition is born directly out of egoistical roots. Thru media, medical advicers and friends (??) we are also told that getting involved is a good way for socializing and mingling with people to open up and exchange vibrations. Indeed getting together is essential straight up to human EVOLUTION but the best competition, the serious one is that for higher ideals and a work of love, silent and fulfilled. Getting togheter with the sole scope to nourish this work belongs to a special kind of understanding.
I am keeping posting in the other blog/collection of hand made inspirational objects here. Even the last posts here say it all. Next month there will be a beautiful Yoga seminar in Wuhan, which is located in the very middle of China, a great occasion to sell the last created jewerly. Ah, and here it comes my art fb page too!
Imprisoned by artistical tendencies…
Po Po is the Grandmother affectionately called just like my Nonna (in italian) or my Babica (in croatian) in Europe. Po Po here in HK i dont have her actually but i kind of meet them everywhere when crossing the street.
There is a restaurant chain here called Shanghai Po Po, we love their food and their huge childish frames decorations on the walls. I am writing about China PoPo over a phone call to my mom where she was telling about seeing a documentary on Himalaya: up up in the Moutains strong women are lowered deep down into natural wells to fill buckets with pure rose salt; which is lately collected and refined by the men of the village. The entire process is hand made and these women just awsomely carry on such a heavy body work. In China women compromise themselves at the same way although we have no pink salt. Women work and worked very hard until consuming their mind and their whole life, and that’s their result when you cross that street:
Trust nor the Senses nor the Media. Trust the Innate principle of Organization. Every day i need to cross indoor a huge and sparkling shopping mall to reach the bus stop. There are beautiful decorations in the middle of the hall and people spontaneously use them as dividing to organize their flow (i flow with them of course) . On one side people go, on the other side people come.
China is organized at heart.
