Kairėnai – Antakalnis [Sep. 15th, 2019|09:24 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Dėkui Ežiukei už pavėžėjimą iki Kairėnų, kurie šiaip man už geros valandos kelio būtų. Pasižvalgiau po sodą, labai maloniai tuščias (visi sodinukų mugėje). Vynuogė (Vitis acerifolia) apsivijusi tvorą, įkopusi į medžius, virš galvos iki dangaus kybo mažų mėlynų uogų kekės. Kol riju eksponatą, ateina sodo darbuotoja. Sako, galima valgyti, ji irgi atėjo pasižiūrėti. Taip pakalbam; sakau:
– У этого винограда такой насыщенный вкус, совсем не то, что в магазине.
– Так там – привозной, а это наш, литовский!
Va taip :)
O tuomet per Aukštagirį nukeliavau iki Saulėtekio ir Antakalnio poliklinikos. Miške prieš savaitę buvo dar priešrudenis. (Indomu, elfiškas metų laikas yávië – javije skamba panašiai, kaip javė, o juk ir atitinka rug-pjūtį bei dalį rug-sėjo. Gal taip ir vadinsiu, tokio žodžio nuosavoje kalboje trūksta). O dabar tikrai ruduo, net pušyne lapelius vėjas vaiko. Ir orai jau kitokie, pirmąkart pasivaikščiojau su pirštinėmis (kaip malonu, kai jas apsimauni, ir jos visiškai sušildo... kai šalčiau, vis vien tik su papildoma nuolatine mankšta beeinant. Pabėgioti ir šiandien jau reikėjo, bet todėl, kad kita apranga buvo visai lengva). Aviečių radau, bet žemuogių ne, nors kitiems pasiseka.

Solaris: what's in the name? [Aug. 30th, 2019|05:41 pm]
Indraja
[Tags|, ]

Yesterday, we had a great live discussion of ‘Solaris’ by Stanisław Lem, and arrived at a question: why is the fictional planet named that way? Would be strange to name it ‘solar’ as in Sun – ‘Sōl’; it orbits two suns to begin with. I guessed the name could be derived from ‘solo’, as it is inhabited by a single organism; also, it is the only such organism humanity has met. Given the underlying bitterness of Lem, a perverted allusion to ‘sōlārī’ (‘to console’) is also possible. What are your ideas? Or maybe someone knows for sure?

Как вам кажется, почему планета Солярис так называется?

Baltijos Kelias [Aug. 23rd, 2019|12:35 am]

Vilnius – Rīga – Tallinn
~1–2 millions of participants

The Baltic Way was a chain of people holding hands across the three Baltic countries. It signified their goal to regain the statehood by peaceful parliamentary means. Symbolically, it was the commemoration and mourning at the 50-year anniversary of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and its secret protocols, which divided the Eastern Europe without any knowledge and consent of its people. In the Baltic Way, the people themselves drew the line on the map, to counterfeit the line drawn by dictators and to take their destiny into their hands.
I also was here: nine years old, on Gediminas’ Hill, the mournful candle dropping hot wax on my hand, my father on one side and someone on the other. It was silent and solemn, and no one here to take a photo – only a feeling never to forget.

Four characters [Aug. 12th, 2019|09:52 am]

[Tags|, , ]

There is a Facebook game: showing four characters that represent some part of one’s personality. Let it be here as well. I’m not so sure who I can look up to or associate myself with, when thinking about my future and present. The characters from my past are a bit of the past, yet still relevant. I’m not like them, sure. I’m a boring character, but we are playing here. There are four pics from the movies, each with commentary.

Fantastinių knygų klubas, mano pranešimas [Jul. 24th, 2019|10:07 am]

[Tags|, , ]

Dėl Ivano Jefremovo „Jaučio valandos“ aistros ir ginčai neslūgsta net po pusšimčio metų. Tačiau daug kas neturėjo galimybės pažinti šią itin kinematografišką, ir nuotykinę, ir filosofinę knygą.

Žemėje seniai iškovotas komunizmas. Darniai išsivystę jos gyventojai suranda kūrybos ir pažinimo džiaugsmą tiek namuose, tiek vis drąsiau žengdami į kosmosą. Žvaigždėlaivio „Tamsioji liepsna“ įgula atskrenda į atskilusios žmonijos šakos apgyvendintą Tormanso planetą, kurios gyvenimas įklimpęs dumbliname laiko užutėkyje. Kaip kalbėsis Utopija ir Distopija? Ir bene svarbiausia: kurią pusę kaip panašesnę į savo aplinką bei ateitį atpažins sovietinio Atšilimo skaitytojas (ir cenzūra!)? Ką jose pamatysime mes?

Kas gali, kviečiu skaityti (Иван Ефремов, «Час быка», pirmas leidimas 1968 m). Kas ne – bibliotekoje ar spintos gilumoje surasti apie ateities Žemę pasakojantį „Andromedos ūką“ (1957). Tezė, antitezė – o paskutinį dialektinį sintezės žingsnį žengsime aptarime!

Susitinkame liepos 30 dieną, antradienį, VU bibliotekos MKIC Saulėtekio al. 5, A119 seminarų kambaryje. Pradžia - 18.30.

Kas dar nebuvo FKK: galima ateiti skaičius. Bet galima ir neskaičius. Galima įsiterpti į paskaitą-diskusiją su savo nuomone. Knygų aptarimas visada nuveda prie susijusių įdomių klausimų, tai puiki proga pajusti dalinimosi idėjomis malonumą. Po to einame į gretimą kavinę, ten skanu ir galima dar daugiau pabendrauti dar laisvesnėmis temomis. Man šiuo gyvenimo laikotarpiu tai yra būtent ta vieta, kur kas mėnesį galiu patirti bičiuliškos bendrystės džiugesį (ir sutikti taip pat ir labai senus draugus bei pažįstamus).
Šioje paskaitoje kalbėsiu ne šiaip apie knygą, o apie vieną svarbiausių mano gyvenime sutiktų kūrinių. Bet tai neturės sutrukdyti ir kritiniam požiūriui.

The forest in the Nuuksio National Park [Jul. 7th, 2019|03:31 pm]
Indraja
[Tags|, ]

It is so wonderful the NNP is so accessible, I just needed one public transportation ticket for ABC zones to reach it from my place of staying, even if this involved metro, train and a local bus. In addition, I have a great respect for how the trails are organised. People often come by car, but then they must leave it and walk on foot (or maybe ride a bike or a horse), even if they are going to cover many kilometres. Wonder if this would ever work at home, where people feel entitled to pick mushrooms by having to walk just a few steps from their car. As a new visitor, I really appreciated the trails from Haukkalampi, as they are very clearly marked and one doesn’t need to learn or think a lot to walk them (that would be fun if one had more than this single day to experience the unusual natural environment). The forest itself may be compared to Aukštaitija NP served on the rocks :) . One must always watch their feet, as an even path with no sticking roots and stones can only be found on the hilltops made of smooth stone. There are lakes, climbs and gorges, and stones big and small. It is wonderful how the abundant visitors do not make it overcrowded (and one can always leave the path and sit in peace for some time, as well). Maybe it being a workday helped as well.

My journey to Helsinki [Jul. 6th, 2019|04:51 pm]
Indraja
[Tags|, , ]

Спасибо тем, кто меня и давно, и недавно навели на мысли, научили, помогли – и в итоге получилось содержательное, в нужной мере удобное да приятное путешествие! В особенности Айреньерэ airenyere и Хильд hild_0 за фотографии и рассказы о замечательном в тех краях. За названия мест. Как говорилось на литовском куда ранее изобретения поисковиков, «знаешь слово – знаешь дорогу».
Having thanked the six persons who helped me in their mother tongue, now I switch to language which is equally difficult for me to use, however much more useful for me to master. There was a city in the fresh air of the sea. There were islands of stone, each so different: a forest, a fortress-town, a museum-village, or just a park for everyone to walk and run by their home in the evening. There were trails in the forests growing upon the rocks. I caught only a glimpse of the history, by passing the monuments, by visiting an open-air museum of village culture. Yet this helped me to have some insights into the mentality of the people of Finland. (All the practical things I dealt with did this as well). There were many chances to meet the nature. I experienced it as so variable, from soaking pouring rain on the island shore in the sea-wind, to heavenly calm forest with no buzzing cloud of flies around my head, something totally unlikely in Lithuanian forest in summer. These were very rich three-and-a-half days of immersion into a new environment. Sometimes it felt that I manage to get to more places and to walk larger chunks of the road than I can truly contemplate and embrace with my feelings. However, one can do this even after the journey is over. Moreover, I managed to stop and have truly solitary ‘being present at the place in the moment’ minutes even in places with lots of visitors: one simply needs to leave the path and walk a few steps where no one is going.

There are the names.
The nice modern corner where I was staying: Kalasatama with cosy forested island Mustikkamaa over a bridge. The islands reached by ferry from the center: the ‘wild nature’ hiding some old explosives in Vallisaari (+ Kuninkaansaari) and the sea-fortress of Sveaborg / Suomenlinna (in fact several islands, I loved the most southern piece but did not go into the fortress museum). The open-air museum in Seurasaari and the shores (reachable by a bridge; a tram or a bus needed to get here from the center). The center itself, with all the landmark churches, also meditative Kamppi Chapel and Temppeliaukio Church (and the Hotel Torni bar panorama). A bit of Nuuksio National Park (went to Espoo, took the bus to Haukkalammentie, walked to Haukkalampi and then through the larger part of well-marked trails of Korpinkierros and Haukankierros, and typed this from memory).
...Now I’m having a whimsical fantasy of going to Espoo and using it as if it were Ignalina, to have daily walks in the national park without carrying a tent, simply by taking a bus :) Anyway, this is only a second year when I have my very own foreign journey, and I already feel I am in a habit of having a yearly journey to far-away places. Sure, there should be other ones coming!

The yards of Antakalnis [Jun. 30th, 2019|01:07 am]
Indraja
[Tags|, , ]

For several months, I took an internship in another lab, also coming back to work in my own lab. This was surely useful, but also tended to take a great deal of space in everyday life, with walking betwixt the places replacing the jogging after work, and so on. On the pleasant side, I got to see Antakalnis in a way which was new to me. Now that this already became a thing of the past, I want to share the photos taken when I was walking the road for the last time. Let the weariness go away (especially, as now it is a vacation, and there is still time until its ‘existential crisis’), and all the sorts of new knowledge stay.

A bit of advertising [Jun. 29th, 2019|11:08 pm]

Just a quick mention: my Instagram account has been dormant for a long time, but now there is a tablet. Sometimes I carry it to some place, and then sometimes I find a spot with wi-fi to upload the photos. This is a very different path than that of the photos from the camera, which end up posted in a blog, so the photo-stories are a bit different as well. You are welcome! Also, I do see the likes in that place ;)

Since the Garden of Eden [Jun. 9th, 2019|06:30 pm]
Indraja
[Tags|]

Of all the love stories, the one of the Good Omens lead couple’s is really a heart-warming one. Angel and demon, they don’t even need to enter the realm of sexuality – they can perform things beyond human limits of intimacy (and this is used to meet non-romantic ends in the story). There is this friendship, which lives up to purest ideals of the True Friendship: staying true to each other in spite of all Heaven, Hell and impending Apocalypse brought together. Yet it does not shy away from being affectionate, sensual, and subtle and all other things, which in the modern understanding are often limited to a particular niche when obviously male-shaped beings are involved. The love storyline figures in many popular stories, even where the tale would be emotional enough without ever involving it. I’ve learnt to take a note of that and then largely filter the fuss out. However, occasionally there is a story that does resonate with me. In the ironical study of humanity’s apocalyptic potential, there is finally this both amusing and moving non-sexual love-friendship ideal. It was in the book a long time ago, yet for me it took the great acting of Michael Sheen and David Tennant to bring it to life in all subtle shades.
