Binecuvântaţi fie vorbitorii aceştia - Radu Herjeu - de Sancho Panza la: 27/10/2008 16:18:06
(la: Cele mai Frumoase Texte ale Cafegiilor )
În orăşelul acesta,
Toată lumea vorbeşte despre iubire.
La colţuri de străzi, sub streşini crăpate,
Se vorbeşte intens, se vorbeşte voluptuos, se vorbeşte apăsat
Despre iubire.
Ninge aiurea, degeaba mai plouă,
Anotimpurile mor nebăgate în seamă.
Drumurile mustesc de praf,
Oamenii nu mai ies de mult la plimbare,
Copacii şi-au găsit alte slujbe,
În oraşe în care oamenii,
Banali şi insipizi,
Nu discută atât de frumos despre iubire.
Câte cuvinte se nasc
Meşteşugite, aurii, zemoase,
Din gurile muritorilor aceştia binecuvântaţi
Cu darul vorbirii.
Câte imagini se trec din ochi în ochi
Ca o marfă de contrabandă nepedepsită.
Nu există copii mai înţelepţi decât ai lor,
Cresc de mici ştiind totul despre iubire.
Animalele au emigrat cu toatele,
Pentru că ele nu ştiu să vorbească,
Dumnezeul lor n-a fost aşa de darnic.
Dar oamenii au suprimat foamea şi frigul,
Printr-o permanentă fericire
Pentru că pot vorbi atât de liberi, atât de netulburaţi,
Atât de cursiv, atât de poetic,
Atât de uman, atât de real,
Atât de profund, atât de permanent
Despre iubire.
Până şi cerul a coborât într-o zi,
Curios să-i asculte.
S-a aşezat lângă vânt
La stânga mării,
Şi-a uitat să mai plece,
Albastru şi fermecat.

Un străin a trecut prin oraş.
Stupid, barbar,
Bietul de el,
Ca un accident al naturii.

Acum, la colţuri de străzi, sub streşini nereparate,
Oamenii vorbesc intens, vorbesc cu voluptate, vorbesc apăsat
Despre hainele nepotrivit de fistichii ale străinului acela
Care habar n-avea de iubire.
Doamne,
Şi câte cuvinte noi, rotunde, se nasc
Meşteşugite, aurii, zemoase,
Din gurile muritorilor aceştia binecuvântaţi
Cu darul vorbirii.

îngheţ - alex andra - de maimuta la: 17/07/2008 12:09:30
(la: Cele mai Frumoase Texte ale Cafegiilor )
nu mă aştepta în dimineaţa asta
n-am să vin cu sufletul pe buze spre tine
mi-am spintecat elanul în spinii din drum
şi rochia în degetele nerăbdătoare ale timpului
mă dor pietrele caldarâmului
şi lucirile muribunde ale nopţii ce-a trecut
braţele-mi întinse bâjbâie oarbe
tu treci paralel prin gândul meu

nu mă mai aştepta în vara asta
sorii mi se răcesc
calme antarctici în calea tălpilor degerate

sa nu iei numele domnului in desert - alex porc - de alex boldea la: 15/07/2008 23:30:58
(la: Cele mai Frumoase Texte ale Cafegiilor )
off-topic: preferatul meu din toata cafeneaua

fragmente:

Frank Watkins de dimineaţă avea în cap porunca asta. Chiar de când deschisese ochii, înainte de a mânca nesăţios ultimul gândac pe care-l mai avea în buzunarul stâng din faţă al pantalonilor de piele, îi răsuna în cap: „Să nu iei numele Domnului în deşert!" Era în deşert, deci nu avea voie să ia numele Domnului. Nici n-avea de unde.

................

Mi-e ciudă. În timp ce eu mor aici murind de sete, pe străzile Seattle-ului sute de mii de oameni se scurg pe asfalt per pedes sau în cutiile lor strălucitoare de conserve (Opel Ascona verde „metalizat", să mori de râs!). Adică nu, nu-mi place exprimarea. Să vedem: în timp ce eu mor murind aici de sete, gloata umană din Seattle se scurge scurgându-se pe asfalt, inconştientă, în hăul timpului. Aşa da, mai merge.

................

Frank se oprise locului, iar în faţa lui, întinsă pe nisip, era o hârtie neagră, cam de un metru pătrat (cu laturi de 1m pe 1m), pe care scria cu litere groase, albe: Iahveh. El se holba la ea. Ea nu se holba la el fiindcă era un ceva neînsufleţit, nu avea organe de vedere (probabil, de fapt cu siguranţă, nici puncte de vedere), chiar dacă pe ea zăcea scris numele Domnului. Chiar şi Frank ştia că Iahveh e denumirea lui Dumnezeu în ebraică. Acum avea o dilemă foarte mare, datorită căreia uitase şi de sete, şi de Isabela, şi de ţigara udă, de tot. Ea ar putea suna, dacă ar fi s-o exprime, în felul următor: sunt în deşert, nu am voie să iau numele Domnului, iar acesta e în faţa mea, pe o hârtie neagră. Dar poate ar trebui să-l iau, poate primesc o bilă roşie de la Petru (deşi ştie şi Frank că grindina nu e roşie. Şi, pe urmă, ar fi frumos să-L părăsesc pe Domnul nostru în mijlocul deşertului, doar fiindcă prietenii mei mi-au făcut mie asta?

................

Dar parcă s-a înteţit vântul. Da, căci am mai mult nisip în gură acum, iar despre ochi nici nu ştiu dacă mai poate fi vorba. Parcă până acum nu aveam nisip şi pe măseaua de minte (într-adevăr, concentraţia de nisip în gură îi crescuse simţitor, de la 1,17 grame pe centimetru cub de gură la 3,23 grame pe centimetru cub de gură, adică îi crescuse cu aproape 200%). Să ştii că vine o furtună. Poate şi plouă, asta ar fi salvarea mea, dar dacă nu plouă nu ştiu ce-o să se întâmple cu mine. Dar deja picură, ah, ce bine e! Doamne, îţi mulţumesc! Apă, apă, apă, sunt salvat!
Există trei variante de a explica întâmplarea:
1.Dumnezeu l-a răsplătit pe Watkins pentru că a luat hârtia, şi atunci porunca „Să nu iei numele Domnului în deşert!" nu are acoperire practică.
2.Dumnezeu a trimis furtuna să-l pedepsească pe Watkins, dar ploaia l-a salvat pe acesta, deci Frank Watkins L-a păcălit pe Dumnezeu, şi atunci nu mai poate fi vorba de Dumnezeu, ci de un impostor.

UN MANIFEST AL FOTOGRAFIEI ROMANESTI - de Dinu Lazar la: 04/01/2004 11:57:07
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Domnul Voicu Bojan, membru al grupului 7zile, lanseaza un gind care poate fi un manifest al fotografiei romanesti; citeva reactii ale unor importanti fotografi romani se pot deja citi la www.fotografu.ro/ratzushca.
Iata tema de discutii propusa de domnul Bojan:
====================================

Doua lucruri doar se pot spune despre acest personaj care, uneori, îi face copiii mai sensibili sa lacrimeze - 1. ca pe ratusca cea urâta n-o iubeste nimeni pentru ca 'iese din rând' si nu seamana cu celelalte ratuste, deci este urâta si 2. ca tocmai urâtenia este cea care contine în subsidiar promisiunea recunoasterii ei ca fiind de fapt o gratioasa lebada. Asta e si speranta mea secreta cu fotografiile care îmi plac nespus doar mie, fara sa stiu prea bine de ce, si pe care le arat în dreapta si-n stânga, doar-doar voi citi într-o zi pe chipul cuiva amestecul acela de vaga invidie bine învelita într-un entuziasm potolit care sa duca la recunoasterea 'lebedei' mele fotografice, 'urâta' pâna atunci de toata lumea si acum brusc metamorfozata în 'frumoasa'. O întrebare mai serioasa sta în spatele acestui joc: în ce consta frumusetea sau nefrumusetea unei fotografii, într-o brusca forma de îndragostire fara vreo explicatie logica,sau în discursul inteligibil care se ascunde dincolo de ea? Avem de-a face cu un mecanism irational, sau cu unul rational? Iubim imaginea aparent pura, sau iubim povestea înscrisa cu litere nevazute pe dosul ei? Vorbim aici de 'obiectul' fotografie, neînsotit si neîngradit de cuvintele, pe care le banuim ca paraziteaza orice imagine. Oare succesul unei fotografii fara titlu sau explicatii auxiliare sa depinda de descifrarea unui sens, mai precis acelasi sens detinut de fotograful-martor, care printr-o privire aidoma unei cautaturi interzise prin gaura cheii a furat lumii un dreptunghi oarecare? Cred ca inteligibilul unei imagini fotografice se compune dintr-un discurs plus o stare, ori chiar daca stratul conotativ se poate exfolia si citi într-o masura mai mare sau mai mica,
starea de gratie în care s-a aflat cel care a privit mai întâi si care vine acum sa le arate si celor care n-au fost acolo, ramâne tarâmul fermecat rezervat exclusiv celui ce l-a dezvirginat printr-o simpla privire. Putem dar vorbi de singuratatea adamica a celui ce vede ca si cum ar vedea pentru întâia oara totul, asta ma rog, pâna în ziua când japonezii vor inventa aparatul digital care va transmite 'la pachet' o data cu imaginea fotografica si starea aceea de gratie, cele mai ascunse gânduri, adierea vântului, temperatura, umiditatea atmosferica etc.
Revenind pe pamânt, ce ne facem asadar cu fotografiile pe care le iubim cu încapatânare, dar care nu plac nimanui? Putem vorbi infinit despre o bucata de drum ca cea pe care v-o propun vederii ca despre un mic interval care contine ADN-ul tuturor calatoriilor, al trecerilor si petrecerilor de pe lumea asta. E într-un fel ocolul pamântului luat la misto. Nu se agata de nimic, nu începe si nu se termina, nu promite nici o tinta, e semiotica pura - semnificatul se lipeste de semnificant ca marca de scrisoare fara sa lase loc vreunui rest interpretabil. Seamana întrucâtva cu palma aceea pe care am primit-o odata absolut din senin de la un tip când am coborât din troleu si care m-a lasat fara replica pentru ca n-a fost însotita de nici o explicatie. Omul a coborât, m-a privit drept în ochi, mi-a dat o palma sanatoasa, cu elan, de mi-a mutat falca, s-a întors si a plecat fara vreun cuvintel. Pe undeva sunt constient ca fotografia asta nu e frumoasa, lumina e plata, cerul nu are nimic de spus, zapada nu e spectaculoasa si exuberanta, ci subtire si nesatioasa ca o felie de pâine unsa cu un strat atât de subtire de unt încât trebuie sa mesteci mult si sa te concentrezi foarte serios ca sa-i ghicesti gustul ocultat. Un asemenea drum nu promite mari
aventuri, e prielnic doar unui strain - xenos, cel delocalizat care trece mereu, asemeni lui Isus în drum spre Emaus. Si împotriva tuturor argumentelor posibile, iubesc mult aceasta fotografie care ma exprima pentru ca în taina stiu ca starea mea de gratie de atunci era într-un rar echilibru cu tot ceea ce se vedea prin vizorul aparatului, ca într-o împacare spectaculoasa si definitiva cu lumea. E vorba aici de un inexplicabil foarte personal care se preface progresiv în inefabil, în ceva usor si fara corp ca frumoasa din poveste, în ceva atât de rarefiat si subtire, încât nici nu are rost sa ne apucam sa vorbim despre el.

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

1 a A person of Hebrew descent; one whose religion is Judaism; an Israelite.
Orig. a Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah, as opposed to those of the ten tribes
of Israel; later, any Israelite who adhered to the worship of Jehovah as
conducted at Jerusalem. Applied comparatively rarely to the ancient nation
before the exile (cf. HEBREW sb. 1), but the commonest name for contemporary
or modern representatives of this group, now spread throughout the world. The
word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not
ethnically related to persons of the main European groups, the Ashkenazim and
the Sephardim.

1974 J. R. BAKER Race xiv. 234 From the traditional religious point of view, a
Jew was a person born of a Jewish mother, but this formula suffers from the
defect that the defined word is included in adjectival form in the definition.
The same flaw occurs in part of the new definition enacted by the Israeli
Parliament in..1970, according to which a person is a Jew if he or she is the
offspring of a Jewish mother or has been converted to the Jewish faith by the
Orthodox Rabbinate or by the Rabbis of the Jewish Reform Movement or by the
Rabbis of the Jewish Conservative Movement.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard

In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

La ei se poate face, la noi nu, ca suntem mai fraieri... - de Dinu Lazar la: 02/09/2004 01:08:19
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
La ei se poate face o istorie a fotografiei, la noi nu, caci suntem mai inapoiati, probabil... si cum pe vremea lu` Dracula nu se faceau poze, e pacat, pentru ca atit i-ar duce mintea, "Pictures with dr.Acula"...
Dar avem si noi partea noastra de vina.

HP Declare British National Photo Album a Success
HP Press Release 01/09/04

Britain's first National Photo Album unearths hidden photographic treasures

HP is pleased to announce the initial success of the National Photo Album, one of the most ambitious public archiving projects in recent history. Having urged the nation to dust off its old photograph albums and rummage through its attics, HP has been astonished to see people react so positively.

With over 5,000 images already submitted and more than 300,000 hits in the first two months, The National Photo Album has been embraced by the public. The search has uncovered some hidden gems from the photo albums of members of the public, such as:

- The enchanting image of Big Ben taken during the strikes in the 1970s, when fuel was at a premium and the spot lights had to be switched off
- A chance meeting with George Best relaxing on holiday in Majorca in 1972
- Young twins working a wooden washing machine in 1939
- A boxing match between sailors, to entertain the troops on HMS Emperor of India in 1915



"We expected a good response, but I don't think we ever imagined that people would react in such a positive manner. The HP National Photo Album is quickly turning into the vital photographic resource we always hoped it would. And there's no doubt that The Daily Mirror has contributed enormously to our success as we supplied its 'Pic of the Week' for almost two months," said Peter Urey, marketing and category manager for HP's Imaging and Printing Group. "No one else is providing a photographic resource which contains pictures solely taken by everyday people and we believed that this difference would offer a 'back stage pass' to our history, now we know for sure that it does."

The aim of The National Photo Album was to search for images of individuals, families, workplaces, events, outings, cities, towns and villages, all accompanied with the story behind each picture; anything which revealed something of the way Britain has worked, played, lived and loved over the past two hundred years. The results have been fascinating with a hugely varied collection of pictures and stories.

"The HP National Photo Album is an excellent incentive to keep British History alive," said one of the National Photo Album's visitors. "It's always great to be able to see other people's pictures of years, events and times gone by and I'm certain that as the word spreads, it will be a much visited site."

"We were hoping for pictures which would immediately provoke attention such as pictures of Elvis Presley's only visit to the UK, but what we have found is that we have received a far more interesting selection of stories," added Urey. "When you read a story about a 10 year old boy, with numerous siblings who was the only bread winner in his family, you realise the importance of these pictures as historical materials."

The HP National Photo Album is free to access at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk Anyone wanting to contribute to the archive can offer their pictures for consideration in one of two ways.

- Option 1: Upload images directly onto the archive at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk by following simple step by step instructions.
- Option 2: Submit entries via post to HP National Photo Album, 31 St. Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA where they will be vetted and uploaded by experts.


*All images must be accompanied by a suitably sized self-addressed envelope. Every effort will be made to return the images in good order but HP cannot be held liable for damaged or lost photographs.

HP has a unique history and expertise in digital imaging. Currently it is assisting museums and art galleries around the world including the UK's National Gallery, in digitising their collections to ensure that the world's most important images are captured for posterity. Now it is turning its attention to the treasure trove of photographs that lie gathering dust in the nation's attics.

By digitising and storing these valuable images HP is aiming to ensure that this valuable photographic inheritance is not lost and can be shared with millions of people. Suitable pictures will be added to the HP National Photo Album which will be a searchable online database of images that can be accessed and downloaded for free.
