نوروز -Norooz /Νορούζ – Η ιρανική Πρωτοχρονιά

Saal-e-no mobaarak (سال نو مبارک) my sweet

Persian poem by the 13th century Sa’adi:

All humans are members of one frame,
Since all at first, from the same essence, came.
When by hard fortune one limb is oppressed,
The other members lose their desired rest.
If thou feel’st not for others’ misery,
A human is no name for thee.

Norooz-postcard

The exact moment that the sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated each year which marks the beginning of Persian New Year.

The Kindergarten Teacher tells a twisted tale of mentor and protégé, and displays Maggie Gyllenhaal’s immense talent. In this story, Gyllenhaal plays Lisa Spinelli, the titular teacher whose life isn’t exactly in crisis, but slowly stagnating.

Lisa’s home life is unsatisfying, her teenage children and husband emotionally distant. She takes the time to attend a weekly poetry class, but her work isn’t particularly good. It’s not terrible – just not great. It’s mundane, just like everything else in Lisa’s existence.

Lisa is coasting through life, until she notices that one of her students, five-year-old Jimmy, going into a kind of trance and reciting a poem that he simply shouldn’t have been capable of Continue reading

Hôtel-Dieu, a hospital for the poor

A hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Its flamboyant Gothic architecture, its polychrome roofs and a renowned vineyard make this museum one of Burgundy’s gems. The Hospices de Beaune is also famous for its 60 hectares wine estate, producing prestigious wines, sold at auction on the third Sunday in November.

The Knife Angel sculpture

The Knife Angel sculpture, made of 100,000 confiscated knives, is installed at Coventry Cathedral, England

The 8 metre-high artwork, created by Alfie Bradley, is at the cathedral until 23 April as a physical reminder of the effects of violence and aggression!

Στο Ηνωμένο Βασίλειο, υπάρχει ένα γλυπτό αγγέλου μήκους 8 μέτρων, κατασκευασμένο από 100.000 δωρισμένα μαχαίρια. Σκοπός του γλυπτού είναι να θυμόμαστε τους ανθρώπους που πέφτουν θύματα βίας με μαχαίρια, στο Ηνωμένο Βασίλειο, και να Continue reading
