This is the theme of my time here in Lviv so far. However, it could be a metaphorical reminder to live life in the moment. Frequently stoping and taking in where you are and deciding if that is where you want to be. I continue to get turned around, but I am no longer afraid to change direction.
The weather in Lviv was blue sky sunny and beautiful today, but cold. Glad I remembered to wear my sweater under my wind breaker, but really missing my gloves.
Below is a photo of me riding on my #8 tram. Today I discovered that if I stay on the right path it is only a 5 minute walk from my apartment, not the 10 minutes it has taken earlier in the week. Getting back home, is still another story. Can’t seem to go back the way I came. I’m constantly aware of needing to cross at the crosswalks. Cars do not seem to want to stop, so I wait to join a group crossing. Are there no traffic lights in Lviv?
Today Irene and I were taken to a wonderful Cafe called Biscuit. Pan Orest treated us to apple strudel, coffee and a taste of pine cone liquer. Then we took a quick look at Strysyikyi park, famous for it’s black swans. I can remember visiting this park with my father and being excited about seeing black swans for the first time. I will need to find my way back here as the weather warms up.
I am eager to get to the studio tomorrow morning. My studio mate Kseniia said they will be unloading the kiln. I look forward to see the wonderful work these students have made.
Hope to write more tomorrow.
