Promises… Enya-Hope has a place



I had promised… but kept on being busy posting. I guess blogging is addictive ūüôā
So, now I’ll try and keep from it until school starts again beginning September.
I’ll try my best to keep on liking your amazing posts but if I don’t, my apologies
to all my wonderful blogging world!

I’ll end this post with a song from Enya I found (in a different version) on http://ladybluerose.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/hope/
who is an huge poet and blogger, my thanks to all for faithfully following,
commenting and liking… and all my wishes for a terrific summer!

I added two other very short films of two monstrous artists… Auguste Rodin and Claude Monet
Enjoy it ūüôā

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Filmed Painting at Home (1919)

This is unique footage of the great Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919).

He is seen at home, working on a canvas.

I’m just astonished it exists – I never imagined I’d see film of him painting – you even get a sense of his method of applying the oil to the canvas.

Also present in this footage are Renoir’s youngest son Claude, 14, who stands by to arrange the palette and place the brush in his father’s hand, and Sacha Guitry, the man who made this film in 1915 and who appears midway through the film sitting down and talking with the artist.

Enjoy!

Auguste Rodin – Filmed Sculpting in his Studio (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of the father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), working in his studio in Paris in 1915.

What is particularly interesting in the various pieces of footage is seeing — close up – the artist’s process with marble.

There are four segments of film:

[1] The artist walking up and down the steps of a monumental columned building, and inspecting the structure

[2] Rodin posing top-hatted in a garden

[3] The sculptor coming out of the then derelict C18 H√ītel Biron, which the artist used as his studio

[4] Rodin sculpting in his studio

Enjoy!

Claude Monet – Filmed Painting Outdoors (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), painting outdoors, ‘en plein air’, in his garden at Giverny.

The footage is in two segments.

Firstly we see the artist outdoors talking to a gentleman.

Then we see Monet painting a water lily-padded pond, a subject for which he is most famed.

Enjoy!

Ripples glistering
Under the burning
Midday sun as fallen
Stars under a full
Moon, igniting and
Vanishing in the
Same gasp…

These photos took me a long time to capture. My camera is not a sophisticated one and it took me ages to get those stars shinning ūüôā
Enjoy them!

The pink Hydrangea

Hydrangea (/ha…™ňądre…™nd í‚ĀĪ…ô/;[1] common names hydrangea or hortensia) is a genus of 70-75 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (China, Japan, Korea, the Himalayas, and Indonesia) and the Americas. By far the greatest species diversity is in eastern Asia, notably China, Japan, and Korea. Most are shrubs 1 to 3 meters tall, but some are small trees, and others lianas reaching up to 30 m (98 ft) by climbing up trees. They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous.

Unique Birth: Gorilla Twins 2013-06-13 Burgers’ Zoo Arnhem, The Netherlands


This is three minutes and nineteen seconds of sheer tenderness coming from one of the strongest animal on our planet. What is fascinating is those two extremes coming from, what seems like a block of concrete on a first encounter.

Enjoy it and let me know what your impressions were ūüôā

2013-06-13 In the Dutch Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem a unique moment took place, N’Gayla a gorilla in captivety gave birth to twins. It was known that the 20-year-old female gorilla was pregnant, but not that she was expecting two baby gorillas, furthermore special was that she was expected to give birth later this summer. Main Carer Wilco Limpers: “At first I didn’t notice that she was having a twin birth, I was filming N’Gayla how she licked her young born clean and ate the afterbirth, then N’Gayla suddenly grabbed something out from the straw:.. another gorillaaaaaa! I really did not know what I saw.A twin birth from gorillas is only occurs about once or twice every ten years in European zoos. “Gorillas usually get only one young at a time. Twin births are for them rarer than in humans. Mother and babies are doing well and the newborns have been seen drinking. Mother N’Gayla literally has her hands full with her ‚Äč‚Äčlittle ones.
Gorillatweeling verrast Burgers’ zoo. In de Arnhemse dierentuin Burgers’ Zoo is in de nacht van woensdag op donderdag 12/13 juni 2013 een gorillatweeling geboren. Moeder is N’Gayla , vader is Bauwi. Een unicum, aldus Burgers’, omdat bij gorilla’s tweelinggeboortes nog zeldzamer zijn dan bij mensen.In dierentuinen komt zo’n geboorte √©√©n √† twee keer per 10 jaar voor. Van moeder N’Gayla was bekend dat ze drachtig was, maar de geboorte werd pas later in de zomer verwacht. De verrassing was groot voor de verzorgers toen ze donderdagochtend eerst √©√©n en later een tweede jong zagen. Moeder en jongen maken ‘t goed en zijn inmiddels buiten te zien. Volgens Burgers’ zijn het een mannetje en een vrouwtje. Music: My First Love by Ernesto Cortazar.

The betrothal of man & nature 16.7.2013

The betrothal of man & nature
————————————-

I do not pretend to tame or conquer
Heights or skies
All I want is your revered beauty
Accompanying
My Odyssey so I can watch your
Marvels with
The Deference merited.

Sit in your silence or accept your
Fury crashing
Against the rocks, fire spitting off
The lips of
Earth, flashes gleaming through
The darkened
Wrathful clouds.

I would like to see the highest waterfalls
Offer itself
To its nucleus… sands sweep the
Evanescent dunes,
The waters shimmering…under the sun,
Froth Vanishing
On white, pink or black sands.

I have heard the echoes of ages,
Smelled foliage
After storm, stones impregnated
With life…
Followed tracks
With no direction, vibrating in me
The familiar sounds…

Of sub silentio… have witnessed
Frost crystallizing
Over dormant villages & glazed lakes,
Inhaled shards of
Glass deep in December’s bewitchment,
But never
Have I retired into

Your arm folds, lulled by your
Differing Anthems
Been a corroborator to your
Grandeur.
I have dreamt you in my
Days & nights,
Attending as an habitué,

Breathing in me, life in its kernel,
Crooning
The promises of paradise…
On the wings
Of habit & proneness…
But until then,
I will wait for the betrothal

Of man & nature
In an eternal blend.
