Every day remains the same



Every day remains the same
All that change is shadow’s game.
Nothing comes and nothing goes,
No one wins and no one looses.

And nothing ever changed:
All that was has remained,
While people lost in shadow's play
Spend their life in foolish game.

Exchanging the shadow for what is real,
They cause the pain that won’t pass,
They cause the sorrow that won’t fade,
Until the light reveal: the shadow’s game.
-----------------------------------------------
Well, I’ve not been around for a while, and with this song want to say, that little is changing. And more, that people are foolish to cause sorrow or pain in any way, when all is so transient., as shadow’s game.
The last period (3 – 4 weeks), was extremely cold. Seams like snow was fallen asleep, and then, suddenly awaken is trying to catch up missed. But, in any way sun and spring are coming.

US vs. Croatia, Davis Cup

So this night Croatia has attained most valuable victory, those over US in first round of Davis Cup. Croatian no1 Ivan Ljubicic has shown it self as very strong and stabile player, winning Agassi in 3 sets, an Andy Roddick in titanic 5 set (almost 4 hours) match. I was amazed by his persistence and stability, steadiness in play and positive respect for opponent. He said that he was breezed by Agassi’s congratulation after the match, expressing al his respect to Agassi as player and person, and setting him up as real example to younger generations.
Mario Ancic, Croatian No2, played also excellent tennis, he shows great potential, regardless he is even now one of the best world players. As a conclusion, this US loss is maybe unexpected, but it cannot be surprise because of Croatian’s team quality.

Bale as example



Those who read my blog sometime, has noticed that I often write about tourism, and tourist infrastructure development in Istria. It is because the interests associated with tourism are so strong, that are causing most environmental, social ,cultural and political problems in Istria. Building lobby is ruining the coast with non environment friendly constructions that will bring fast profit bat long term problems to people, shady brokers are making profit on all this, and our loved peninsula is every day becoming opposite of those marketing slogan: “Adriatic that was once”. Unfortunately our leaders are not making enough to put some order, to build people-friendly society, and even worse, some of them are engaged in such businesses also. They are building profit-friendly society, where small number of people will be extremely wealthy, while others life standards will low, regardless all wealth and glow around.
As opposite to this, Bale, small and traditional city gave until now unseen example, where most political parties has joined together in interest to keep one of the last authentic coasts safe from deterioration, and to bring prosperity to citizens and common people not only to “big pockets”. The plan is to revitalize all potentials already present derived from historical and cultural heritage, to include citizens as part of project, to save natural potentials and shape them in order to become available and profitable to tourists. There are many detail in this plan, so it would be out of scope to present them all here, but lets say that plan is fully compliant with tradition and environment, that does not implies radical changes but evolution of existing, which will ensure continuity in life and tradition as easy integration in existing structure.
What an opposition to hotel and apartment resort that was planed before, that would bring some profit in city budget, and employ some people, but that would also destroy valuable historical and natural resources forever. Essentially, people from Bale, by this scenario, would be left aside from any vital circuits in their own homeland. Without talking that development of continental part of Bale would be left out of systemized plan, slowing its development down, and leaving it to random circumstances for years. So congratulation to people who fought this battle to save Bale and transform them to real and authentic tourist oasis, “Adriatic as before”, and not to deteriorated copy of Spanish or Italian massive tourist resorts. If they made mistakes, do we have to repeat them? I hope not, for sake of all…
