Don’t trouble trouble until trouble troubles you

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take It From Me.”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve given someone that you failed to take yourself?

This is one of my favorite sayings, not just because it sounds cool. Sometimes I tell it to others, when they are trying too much and going with this in a wrong direction.

I feel satisfied, when I can get things done. Finish a task. Complete a mission. Unfortunately, this sometimes involves troubling some long-forgotten tasks that other people haven’t finished.

What would you rather do:

  • finish a task, but remind others about their part of the task;
  • leave it be, until someone else troubles you?


A century old history of music

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “From the Collection of the Artist.”

To characterize the art and the time of the year 2015, a quote from the Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens can be put here:

It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times,
it was the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope,
it was the winter of despair,

we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way— in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

However, in contrast to this beautiful, but reasonably older writing, in this exhibition we want to introduce you to the reason, why this period can be considered as the dark age of music. About that time the art of music hit its lowest form, and the worst songs of the previous year can be heard here:


The Planet of Cats

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Interplanet Janet.”

I am a cat person, so I would love for a cat planet to exist. So there is a list of properties that my cat planet has:

  • The month is always March;
  • Each cat has a personal human door-opener, snuggler and food-giver;
  • The rivers are made from milk;
  • There is a blanket under every bush, so that cats can be comfortable during their daily napping;
  • There is no rain;
  • There are a lot of trees;
  • There are many bird-feeding places and they are not higher from ground than 50 centimeters, so they are also cat-feeders.
