The saying is that if you finally got your wisdom teeth, you are now a person of fair judgment. You have now good senses and finally mature to self decisions. I don't have to say that those teeth never came to me. Until now. I wasn't worried about them and I definitely don't believe that I need a couple of tooth to be wise. (The joke is that wisdom comes late in life as these teeth are the last ones to appear in the human body). Well. I am 23. And my joke is that right after these troubled days, hard hours, lonely nights, big decidions and reflections, fear and questionings,(no need to meantion tears, tears, tears...) I got to understand a lot about myself and the very situation I am in. (...) But anyways, back to my joke, so I was here, alone, thinking and re-thinking lots of things and trying to be brave enough to do what I know I need to, when guess who came to make some company last night? Tooth pain. Headache. Swelling. (If you guessed tears is also right, of course). A limb - actually two - in the back of my mouth and I realized what it was about. Got it all. So funny life, thank you so much. It was a hole of that typical life lessons called 'only in the pain we grow better'. Well, I am internally clapping right now. I got the joke - and the pain. And the right moment to my wisdom teeth pull out.- That's wonderful and I am just processing the irony. (As I am processing all the pain it will actually cause me, both the teeth and decisions I have made). And what can I do now? enjoy this beautiful warm and blue sky day - which is a miracle; said the English people - in London with this stunning building right ahead of me reminding me that the past exists and will be there anytime for a visit for some new lesson. 🇬🇧🍃🗺️📿 . . . . #ts#london#lonelytraveller#views#uk#great#greatbritain#places#aboutlife#quotes#britishmuseum#day#bluesky#beautifulday#beautifuldestinationsaroundworld#igtravel#igpoets#writerscommunity#writingcommunity
Esse pente esculpido em marfim no século 15 pode ser visto no Kunstgewerbemuseum de Berlim (o equivalente alemão de um museu de artes e ofícios). O pente exposto traz cenas bíblicas esculpidas tanto no verso quanto na frente. O lado exposto mostra a Adoração dos três reis magos, um tema, que graças à tradição iconográfica bizantina, se combina com o próprio motivo do nascimento de Jesus. No outro lado do pente, que infelizmente não podemos ver no museu, foi esculpida a Anunciação à Maria pelo anjo Gabriel. Por sorte, os museus estatais de Berlim têm um ótimo banco de dados online e lá é possível ver a segunda cena (segunda foto deste post). | Foto 1: feita no nosso passeio de hoje ao Kunstgewerbemuseum.
