Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “V”
Event Type: General Blogging
Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly
Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged U”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “V” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “V”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “V”!!! Myself I’ll focus on “violin”:
I’m very happy that a violinist from The Netherlands, Dick VESTDIJK = Oorlab, added his talent to one of my tracks of my Gypsy swing project GITANE FRITS:
My friend Andrey Shilov commented: The title of the composition is “Dorogoy dlinnoyu” which means “By a long road…” or the English version is “Those were the days”. The author of the music is Boris Fomin – a great musician who was hated by Stalinists.

Excellent ‘V’ gallery, I like the vermeer room.

I thought about vineyards but then this caught my eye during my search: http://geriatrixfotogallerie.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/tagged-v-like-vespa/
hi Traudel, me on a VESPA:
Great, keeps you young!
my wife Barbara and a red VESPA:
Vespa seems to be a family thing then? Looks like you both have fun with them:)
And when you will be at Z…. end of the challenge ?
Violin and blues are so wonderful
yes, I’ll make an end after Z (already scheduled): I hope we still stay in contact, commenting our other posts! (Often about music, I believe, that’s the last isle I will retire to, after leaving writing, politics, philosophy, photography…)
I decided to speak about music on sunday with my articles on my musical website. But you can comment my drawings, cartoons, pictures from good photographer (so, not me :p) and post on foreign policy, as the one on Ukraine today. I hope to have time to listen to all the music I want

without getting my shoes smouldering.

V for Vulnerability …. here’s my entry –
I’m pleased to be back and able to take your challenges again. Frizz.
Love all of your V’s.
Vulnerability is a bridge to get wiser, your life line is one example, Isadora, maybe my fate too (starting my life in an orphanage). Your husband (after that sad attack of violence vs. him) can be glad to have you!

Bit late posting this week, but here is mine: http://suejudd.com/2014/06/04/frizztexts-a-to-z-challenge-v-is-for-voronet/
great wall paintings with an unbelievable blue! I hope no suburban graffiti sprayers once will find this treasure inspired to make some signs – but maybe they would learn how to paint better?
I hope nobody ever defaces these treasures ….

Some really imaginative V’s.Here’s mine http://wp.me/p1NUPI-jx
O thank you so much for “Those Were the Days”!!
. I’ve been absolutely madly in love with this song since I was a kid in grammar school when I first heard Mary Hopkin’s version of it!!
VERLAINE – VOLTAIRE etc. I like French writers, painters – and musicians too!
P.S.: merci for giving courage to me,
to make some music – it’s played on a French Gitane guitar…
voilà: me, playing a French composition:
Je suis seul ce soir = I’m alone tonight:
here = ici, alors, voilà
that is = à savoir, voilà, c’est-à-dire
there = là, il y a, là-bas, voilà
this = voilà

Love your Vespa pix – please have a look at
I could take this as a gravestone script for
my mother: she made suicide by hanging…
“V is for Victim
dumped by the door
hung in a hallway
slumped on the floor.”
Oh dear, I too know many suicidees… I guess we have to have a sense of humour about things the farther in we get! You might like Edward Gorey…
