Those cherries fairly do enclose
Of Orient pearl a double row,
Which when her lovely laughter shows,
They look like rose-buds filled with snow

Sorry for my absence, I’ve been busy picking cherries! ♥

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh, they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright   

   ~   Mumford & Sons


For once in my life I’m not waiting for things to get better. The feeling is so foreign to me that I’m kind of at a loss. Seriously, what do people do with their time when they’re not busy with being unsatisfied? I guess it’s finally time for me to stick my head out of my own a*** and look around, take an interest in others, reply to emails, get on Skype, find out what it’s like to live in a world that’s not a lonely planet. Besides, I’ve whined and complained about myself for so long I might as well return the favour.

How’s you?

"O, wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world that has such people in’t!"

One can acquire everything in solitude except character.

   ~   Stendhal


Lately I seem to be guest starring “Hormones Gone Wild”. Watched “An Adventure in Space and Time” and cried like a baby. Saw again Buffy’s Season 5’s finale and wept non-stop. My boyfriend read to me “The House of Asterion” and I turned into the Niagara falls. Then this morning I was listening to “Eleanor Rigby” and started crying on the bus. One thing’s for sure, I’m not watching Dumbo any time soon…

“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”

   ~   Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


OK, I’m giggling like a teenager with a crush, but isn’t he handsome all dressed up as Ripafratta?

I’ve been running around like crazy these days, hardly spent any time at all at home if not to sleep. On the one hand I’m starting to feel pretty exhausted, but on the other it’s probably a good thing I don’t get to stay at home and dwell on how empty and quiet it feels these days. Luckily I’m broke, so I needn’t add to my engagements the Christmas shopping - fairly sure that if I just ignore it, it will go away!

Seriously though, how did Christmas sneak up to me so fast this year? I still haven’t even gotten over summer ending… maybe I could learn how to bake and give out biscuits as presents…

Can you help me remember how to smile
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded
Life’s mystery seems so faded 

   ~     Soul Asylum



So earlier today @instagram featured photos from a ghost town I visited some months back and suddenly I was flooded with views and likes! That’s pretty cool but at the moment my gallery feels a bit like a ghost town itself. I guess I let the weight of my daily duties get to me so much I was too demotivated to even go through the simple task of picking my mobile device and uploading a photo. Boo!

So now I’m on the subway going home, hungry and exhausted, and I’ve decided to focus of the good things from today. Texts from my sweet that made me smile, the sunny and clear sky from this afternoon, speaking to my mom, coming across a friar that looked like Walt Whitman. There, a pretty good day all in all.

So here’s what’s on top of my to-do list from now on: notice the good stuff.

Where is the
Tenderness
Little tenderness
Where is the
Tenderness
Little tenderness

   ~   General Public


Thing about life, it’s never perfect except when you’re under the impression that it is. This fancy has no proper reason to exist and it can hit you in any moment. There are some days, in the company of some people, that it hits you more often than not. And then you find yourself grinning just because you’re looking at an old photo that you took of them while they took one of you. Bam.

Life’s a bitch, but it’s perfect.

What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And all that’s nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.

   ~   Traditional Nursery Rhyme


Well, I’ve got lots of spice, and sugar enough, but all that’s nice is a little vague, isn’t it?

I’m going to start taking new pics next week, I’ve still got loads of #latergrams to post but I need a breath of fresh images. Anyway, this one’s from Paris, obviously. I love people watching, and sometimes when you’re all out of subjects all you’ve got to do is pick a corner, sit there and snap away.

Have a great weekend!

Laundry day
See you there
Under Things
Tumbling

   ~   Doctor Horrible


Well you can guess what I did this afternoon, though the laundry hanging in the picture is not actually my own laundry…

As a fan of Joss Whedon I adore Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, but there’s one thing that bothers me. It bothered me also in Friends, other sitcoms and a relatively small number of films. Oh, and in a Levi’s commercial. It’s the myth of laundrettes (or Laundromats) being fun, entertaining or at least interesting places.

A number of years ago our washing machine passed away. Luckily a coin-wash had recently opened nearby, and rather than buying a new appliance I decided to go there. After all it always seemed like a fun way to wash you clothes, meet people, make friends and generally add the social factor to an otherwise boring chore.

Well, it’s a lie. Years of going to the laundrette taught me that most of the times you’ll be alone and bored to death. Otherwise you might meet tired looking people who hate being there and have no interest in getting to know you. And many times you’ll get ripped off by a faulty machine.

So the lesson is: don’t believe what you see on TV.
And get your own washing machine.

Around, around the sun we go, the moon goes ‘round the earth, we do not die of death - we die of vertigo.


   ~   James O’Barr


I was twelve when The Crow came out in the cinemas. It opened up a whole new world of gritty story telling, independent comic books and the borderline morbid attention we pay to “famous” deaths. There were no social networks then to inform me of everybody’s two cents when a celebrity passed away but all my classmates had seen the documentary detailing Brandon Lee’s accident. Some of us cried, some were at loss for words and some turned to poetry. I wrote some awfully morbid poems when I was twelve.

And they were pretty awful too.

The Crow comic book also contains lots of poetry. Of the angry, desperate and hopelessly nostalgic type. It’s in the way it’s drawn and the things its protagonist says. This quote was the first I ever memorized, and being twelve I was immediately reminded of the nursery rhyme “Ring-a-ring o’roses”. Some say the rhyme is about the plague, and I can’t help wondering when did going round and round become such a downer?

Isn’t it supposed to be merry?

I just sit where I’m put, composed
of stone and wishful thinking:
that the deity who kills for pleasure
will also heal,
that in the midst of your nightmare,
the final one, a kind lion
will come with bandages in her mouth
and the soft body of a woman,
and lick you clean of fever,
and pick your soul up gently by the nape of the neck
and caress you into darkness and paradise. 


   ~   Margaret Atwood


Some days you aim to be a lion but you end up being rabbit hearted.

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

   ~   Dave Barry


Good things happen to those who wait, they say. What I know for sure is that if you’re taking the underground to return home during rush hour on Friday you’really gonna have to make a choice: get squashed in the overcrowded train to arrive a few minutes earlier or wait for the next one and avoid the nervous breakdown. And the bruises. Well, here I am, comfortably seated and homeward bound.

I hope you’re all having a great Friday evening!

Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.

   ~   William Wordsworth


I am NOT a morning person. I’m pretty much on automatic pilot until midday, unless I have continuous doses of coffee. Is this a city life thing? Whenever I leave Milan I find that people are happy and chilled even if they wake up at six. How do they do that? Is that what they mean by seize the day?

A couple of years ago I visited for the weekend a friend who had moved back to her hometown on the mountains. Sunday morning I first opened my eyes at 9 and heard her mother and her bustling in the kitchen. I fell asleep again and an hour later I heard my friend on the phone. My brain snoozed another couple of times and by the time I finally got up it was noon. I was welcomed politely but wary-eyed, like a stranger, and this city girl couldn’t help feeling guilty for having wasted her friend’s morning.

Fun fact: I haven’t heard from my friend since.

This #latergram offering is from last new year’s in Sardinia. I’ve been exceedingly lazy with the uploads.

Have a nice day!
