Οκτωβριανη Επανάσταση 25 Οκτωβρίου 2017 …. 100 χρόνια




  • Οταν ημουν παιδι η μονη διασκέδασή μου και η 'φυγη μου" από την παιδική ασχημη ηλικία μου ηταν ο σινεμάς η έβδομη τέχνη .......που δεν πληρωνα ποτε εισιτήριο γιατι οι κοπέλες που ησαν στο ταμειο ησαν αδελφές και σπιτονοικοκυρες μας και με αφηναν να τρυπώνω τσάμπα
    Εκεινα τα χρόνια ηταν η ανθιση του καλου αμερικάνικου κινηματογράφου Περιττό να πω ότι ημουν 5-6-7 -8 χρονων και 'σπούδασα΄μυστικά την υποκριτικη τέχνη και γέμισα απεριόριστες γνώσεις σαν να ειχα τελειωσει 10
    ...πανεπιστήμια Και σαν παιδί τα απορρόφησα όλα
    Αυτό είναι ένα ποιημα που εγραψα για έναν διαγωνισμο με θεμα την Οκτωβριανη Επανάσταση
    Ημουν 10 χρονών και ειχα δει πολλες ταινίες σχετικα με κορυφαιους σκηνοθετες που ανήκαν στους κουμμουνιστες
    Οι ταινίες ελεγαν αλήθειες ΠΕΡΑ από πολιτικη τοποθέτηση και σήμερα θεωρούνται κορυφαιες
  • ΚΑΠΟΙΕΣ ΑΠΟ ΤΙΣ ΠΡΏΤΕΣ ΤΑΙΝΙΕΣ ΠΟΥ ΕΙΧΑΝ ΓΥΡΙΣΘΕΙ ΠΑΙΖΟΝΤΑΝ ΚΑΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΕΛΛΑΔΑ ΟΠΟΥ ΤΙΣ ΕΙΔΑ ΟΤΑΝ ΗΜΟΥΝ ΠΑΙΔΙ
  • Οκτωβριανη Επανάσταση
  • 25 Οκτωβρίου 1917…………μυριάδες φωνές
    τις σημαίες μάχης υψώνουν
    εργάτες και αγρότες ,προλετάριοι
    με απλωμένα φλεγόμενα χέρια
    εξαθλιωμένοι επαναστατημένοι εξεγερμένοι
    *
    Οι ημέρες που περνούν …..
    με τις ανυπόταχτες ψυχές μοιάζουν
    που ελεύθερες είναι στην
    Αψίδα του θριάμβου
    *
    Εξέγερση και εξουσία
    στην καρδιά η ανάγκη και η φλόγα που καίει
    για ελευθερία
    του χρόνου τα αναφιλητά
    μέσα από συγκρούσεις και αντιστάσεις
    έγιναν πολιτισμού έργα
    έγιναν έργα αξεπέραστα
    έγιναν τέχνη

  • Πύρινα χρόνια
    Σινεμάς «βεριτέ» της ζωής
    Πουντόβκιν, Βερτόφ ,Κόζιντσεφ,Βασίλιεφ ,Ράισμαν
    “σινεμάς η πραγματικότητα ….”
    στην δουλειά ,στο δρόμο
    την γνώση
    την ομορφιά , την σκέψη και την
    καθημερινότητα καταγράφει
    Νέοι άνθρωποι κυρίαρχοι
    στον ρου της τεχνολογίας από
    «Το ξεκίνημα ενός λαού»του Αλεξάντρ Ντοβζένκο
    ενάντια του φασισμού παρασυρμένοι
    *
  • 25 Οκτωβρίου 2017 …. 100 χρόνια
    Ποτέ πια του ανθρώπου
    η «εκμετάλλευση»
    στην ταξική κοινωνία κοινωνική δικαιοσύνη
    αστοί ,φεουδάρχες ,προλετάριοι
    στη μεγάλη σοσιαλιστική Οκτωβριανή
    επανάσταση

  • ΤΟ ΠΟΙΗΜΑ ΜΟΥ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΝΘΟΛΟΓΙΑ ΕΛΙΚΩΝ

  • Κόκκινα σπαρτά

    Πριν γεννηθώ
    στην απέραντη ύλη…..
    ...
    απογυμνώθηκα
    χωρίς αφή

  • Στο σκοτάδι
    μεγάλωσα μέσα
    στο πλήθος, στης
    θυσίας την βοή

    Ταξίδεψα αποσκελετωμένη
    από την πείνα και τα
    βασανιστήρια
    συμπαγείς τοίχοι
    μαρμάρωσαν τα φτερά μου
    σε θρύψαλα φρίκης

  • Σιωπηλά σώματα, γύρω μου
    παρασύρονται, γλιστρούν
    αδόκιμα σε άνισες
    ισορροπίες, στο κενό
    μετουσιώνονται

  • Κόκκινα σπαρτά του Ήλιου
    που ποτίστηκαν με
    περίσσιο αίμα οι φίλοι
    και οι θαμμένες ρίζες….
    κραυγές πνιχτές
    που ακούγονται κάθε νύχτα
    τρυπούν τις φλέβες, τον αέρα
    μεταμορφώνονται
    σε νερό σε φωτιά
    δεν πεθαίνουν

  • Red crops

  • Before I was born in the vast material ... ..
    isolated
    without touch

  • In the dark
    grew up
    the crowd, listing in
    sacrifice the roar
    Travelled emaciated
    from hunger and
    torture
    solid walls
    to marble my wings
    shivers in horror

  • Silently bodies around me
    drift, slide
    inappropriately to unequal
    balances in limbo
    denatured

  • Red crops of the Sun
    which watered with
    excess blood friends
    and buried roots ....
    cries muffled
    heard every night
    pierce the veins, air
    metamorphose
    Fire water
    They do not die

EFTICHIA KAPARDELI: “PRIMĂVARĂ”
Traducere: Prof. Dr. Cornelia Păun Heinzel

Cu polenul florilor
Locul de trezire
în naşterea
în cercul nemuritor
la pământ, legat de pântecele mamei
și însămânțarea umană
***
Sunete și lanțuri de culoare blândă
Visuri impletite cu primăvară
apeluri erotice neașteptate,
***
Florile de vis   
petrec crinii nou-născuți   
de noroc
În trezirea luminii,
singura minte, sufletul din revelația apelor.

    Άνοιξη

    Με τη γύρη λουλουδιών
    Το ξύπνημα της γης
    μέσα στη γέννηση
    στο αθάνατο κύκλο
    τη γη στη μήτρα δεμένο
    και ανθρώπινη σποράς
    ***Sounds and shackles of colorblandly Dream plaited with Spring
    unexpected calls erotic
    ***
    The dream flowers
    spent
    newborn lilies
    of luck In light awakening,the only mind, the soul
    in revelation waters

    ΑΝΟΙΞΗ
    Με την γύρη των λουλουδιών
    η γη ξυπνά
    μέσα στο γέννημα
    σε κύκλο αθάνατο
    στο χώμα στην μήτρα δεμένη
    και η ανθρώπινη σπορά
    ***
    Ήχοι και δεσμά χρωμάτων τρυφερά

    ονειροπλεγμένα με Ανοιξιάτικα

    απροσδόκητα καλέσματα ερωτικά

     ***
    Τα άνθη ονείρων ξοδεύονται
    νιόβγαλτα κρινάκια της τύχης
    Στο ξύπνημα φωτός ,

    O μόνος νους, η ψυχή
    σε νερά αποκάλυψης

Poem by Eftichia Kapardeli
 
 
 
e-1
At flapping wings
 
Three angels with excess
peacefulness
on one virgin dome
a simplistic church
hanging
 
Flowers measure
forces
on stone slits
 
The people grow
in loneliness
hungry for love
 
The deserted streets
Hold the calcined
sun of summer
birds waiting
 
In the long journey
promise roots stretching
at flapping wings
in the cities of the world
colors awaken to light
 
 
 
ΣΤΟ ΧΤΥΠΗΜΑ ΤΩΝ ΦΤΕΡΩΝ
 
Τρεις άγγελοι με περίσσεια
γαλήνη
σε έναν παρθένο τρούλo
μιας απλοϊκής εκκλησιάς
κρέμονται
 
Λούλουδα μετρούν την
δύναμη τους
στις σχισμές της πέτρας
 
Οι άνθρωποι μεγαλώνουν
στην μοναξιά
διψούν για αγάπη
 
Οι δρόμοι έρημοι
κρατούν τον πυρωμένο
Ήλιο του καλοκαιριού
τα πουλιά περιμένουν
 
Στο μακρινό ταξίδι
η υπόσχεση ρίζες απλώνει
στο χτύπημα των φτερών
στις πόλεις του κόσμου
ξυπνούν τα χρώματα στο φως.

FEBRUARY QUESTIONNAIRE
Valentine’s Day – myth or reality?

SONGSOPTOK: Valentine’s Day has become one of the major festivals these days, comparable to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Diwali, Id, Rosh Hashanah or Chanukah and observed by men and women irrespective of religion. Do you agree? How important is it in the country you live in??

EFTICHIA:  Perhaps abroad in other countries is the widespread celebration of Valentine's  day   ie “of love” but  I live in Greece and the Orthodox religion Valentine’s Day  celebrated restricted


SONGSOPTOK: There are several different views about the history and origin of Valentine’s Day. Which is the version you know about?

EFTICHIA: The February 14 is the day that celebrates Saint Valentine and has established itself as the day of love, since according to popular tradition, this saint is the patron of couples. But who was actually St. Valentine?... First, something that most people do not know is that February 14th is actually the day he died, Saint Valentine on Via Flaminia north of Rome. Little is known about the life of Saint Martyr Valentine, while it is not clear if this is a person or two different saints with the same name. Because of the confusing information, no mention in the Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar and the Orthodox Church has never admitted it, while the Catholic church demoted the celebration of a simple local feast. According to the dominant legend, Valentine was a priest who lived in the 3rd century and hidden by the emperor Claudius the Goth (then in power), love marry Christian couples and generally help the Christians, which was considered a crime. Arrested for his act was jailed, but the emperor initially decided to pardon until Valentinus tried to introduce Christianity and the emperor sentenced him to death by stoning. However Valentinus survived the stoning, so the beheaded outside the gate of the Flaminia on February 14 of 169. Another legend, however, says that Valentine was a former bishop of Terni, a city in southern Umbria (so called then Central Italy) and was placed under house arrest when the judge Asterios, questioning the validity of the Christian religion put him in a test. He presented his blind adoptive daughter and said that if we do find the light will have to ask. Indeed he restored the sight of his daughter and the judge humiliated asked what he wants to do .....Saint Valentine told him to break within three days all pagan statues have and then be baptized. The judge did and then baptized his whole family, however, the shift to the large court did not like Emperor Claudius, who arrested Valentine and the outcome and this legend is exactly the same as the previous.The importance of today is Valentine's Day acquired it in the 14th century, which was associated with the concept of fair love and the first written mention of a saint to found in 1382 in the poem The Parliament of Birds (Parlement of Foules) of Geoffrey Chaucer. Today Valentine's Day is an official holiday in the Anglican Communion and the Lutheran Church. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, however, Saint Valentine Elder celebrated on July 6 and the Martyr St. Valentine (Bishop of Terni), celebrated on July 30. However, due to the general uncertainty of the life of this saint, established the Valentine or Valentine name be celebrated on February 14, the most prevalent as the day of death of this saint and decorated with flowers relic Valentine exposed to the basilica Saint Mary in Cosmedin in Rome.


SONGSOPTOK: Why do you think Valentine’s Day has become so important all over the world irrespective of the political, social and religious dimensions? Do you think that the anxiety and stress related to modern day relationships have contributed to its growing popularity all over the world?

EFTICHIA:  No specific information about the Saint Valentine however represents love. YES I agree to the stress and the stress in today's society. The "youth" need love, pure love that while concepts are spiritual and Divine seeks the personal touch of the Holy of eros. But in my own opinion is still a global business


SONGSOPTOK: Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? In what way? If you don’t, will you please explain why not?

EFTICHIA: The day of St. Valentine presupposes memory ..Nowadays that everyday we have many problems are difficult to "remember" and offer you a flower (the most simple symbol of this holiday) This does not mean that it can not be loving in all over the rest of the year.


SONGSOPTOK: Do you feel obliged to do something special for your spouse/partner on Valentine’s Day or it is similar to and as natural as celebrating birthdays and anniversaries? In other words, is there any peer pressure to conform to the traditions associated with the modern version of Valentine’s Day?

EFTICHIA:  Personally I think not The Valentine's Day is not only for lovers but generally about love ...... might need every day to tell our own people with deeds that we love them


SONGSOPTOK: According to you what, if anything, is special about Valentine’s Day? Does it play an important role in romantic relationships? Why? Is it important for you to surprise your partner on Valentine’s Day? What would be your preferred way?

EFTICHIA:
If I was definitely in love would like a gift
But self and our days will be surprised
The love is not based on a festivity


SONGSOPTOK: Do you buy gifts on Valentine’s Day? What type of gifts do you normally buy? Do you think it is important to follow the norm and go for the traditional gifts like flowers, chocolates, cards, perfumes etc.? Please share your motivations or lack of them with us?

EFTICHIA: There are very nice gifts in the shops to express your love to those who love ........... and I think that 'captures' the gentle love of others ........... If I was in love ............... maybe buy something for the people who are near me every day that I would not do it this day would do it every day


SONGSOPTOK: Marketing Gurus often dub Hallmark as the official sponsor of Valentine’s Day in the USA. Do you have any equivalent in your own country? Do big consumer good companies carry out an aggressive promotion campaign for Valentine’s Day? What are their preferred channels? Do social media play an important role in this respect in your country of residence?

EFTICHIA:  NO in Greece No sponsorship. In Greece Western St Valentine entered our life in the '80s, as the patron of lovers, with many business stakeholders have prepared a well organized celebration commercialization industry. This day is considered as one of the most profitable for florists, restaurants, hotels, gift shops, etc. And the view of the media is great. Entrepreneurs prepared long ago and so far have made huge turnovers.

The Orthodox Church has brought many objections and took tough attitude to this celebration, making efforts to establish the orthodox version of the celebration of love for believers of orthodoxy. Corresponding saints in Greek Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar is the Holy Love (June 25), for which there is a song with the same title, which has interpreted Pantelis Thalassinos, Saints Aquila and Priscilla (February 13) and St Hyacinth (July 3) and he patron of love and affection, and he martyred for his faith at a young age, two centuries before Valentino. The first temple built dedicated exclusively to the one found in Anogia of Crete, in one of the slopes of Psiloritis, made of stone, hidden, it is secretly and feelings! Eventually the efforts found no response so the Orthodox Greeks still remember and celebrate the Catholic Saint Valentine.

The feast of St. Valentine has been criticized a lot for the speculative nature and the commercialization of what is.


SONGSOPTOK: What are the popular customs related to Valentine’s Day in the country you live in? What do you think about them? Do you think that men and women actually enjoy and look forward to 14th February or is it just a matter of keeping up with the Jones’??

EFTICHIA: I think that women are more prone to this feast and perhaps seek to celebrate since usually women remind men that today is the day of love
The most simple and sincere gift is a flower, yet very few people are truly in their relations and "ignorance" and perhaps that's why festivity remains only commercial


SONGSOPTOK: Do you think that there is actually a social stigma for single, unattached people who do not celebrate Valentine’s Day? Do you think that the Valentine Day extravaganza may have a negative impact on their psyche, moral and ultimately their well-beings? What is your own experiences? Would you please share it with us?

EFTICHIA: There are the religious, social and economic criteria and there is  no social stigma simply they consider the luxury to engage others because you do have money, "others because it is a celebration" pagan "because others are not interested as a festivity

On this planet earth there is love. Apart from spiritual love there is the "commercial", which corresponds to 99% when  become the demystification of love suddenly one finds in empty and there enters the commerce of love.  Love, is itself feast celebrated throughout the year. It is still an opportunity to get close to our soul, the true, undistorted our human nature does not need Valentine

We sincerely thank you for your time and hope to have your continued support.
