Bullfighting

“The truly great killer must have a sense of honor and a sense of glory far beyond that of the ordinary bullfighter. In other words he must be a simpler man. Also he must take pleasure in it, not simply as a trick of wrist, eye, and managing of his left hand that he does better than other man, which is the simplest form of pride and which he will naturally have as a simple man, but he must have a spiritual enjoyment of the moment of killing. Killing cleanly and in a way which gives you aesthetic pleasure and pride has always been one of the greatest enjoyments of a part of the human race.”

Noci

Quando si ha il mondo in gran dispitto, l’unica salvezza è una bottiglia di vino bianco e un buon libro.

Firma

Esco di casa, destinazione Torino, e intanto aspetto nervosamente notizie della firma di Tom a Boston.
Se qualcuno avesse aggiornamenti…

“Ahh, quanta strada nei miei sandali, quanta ne avrà fatta Bartali…”

Al bar qui sotto

Bubbles

Mentre sto per rimettermi in viaggio in treno verso Milano, forse per colpa del caldo e di queste giornate di lavoro, continuo ad avere in testa questo meraviglioso coro dei tifosi del West Ham.

I’m forever blowing bubbles
 Pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high
They reach the sky
And like my dreams they fade and die

Fortune’s always hiding, I’ve looked everywhere
I’m forever blowing bubbles
pretty bubbles in the air

Lunga vita agli ultras

It Never Entered My Mind

Oggi festa dei fiori qui sui Navigli sotto casa nostra.
Sveglia presto e piacevolissima passeggiata che ci ha fruttato anche qualche nuova pianta e un po’ di erbette miste da usare in cucina.

Timo, Salvia, Rosmarino e Prezzemolo a casa

Dalla nostra finestra

Mentre mi godo da casa i nuovi colori mi riposo e vado avanti con il mio libro che prosegue meravigliosamente.

“So far, about morals, I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after and judged by these moral standards, which I do not defend, the bullfight is very moral to me because I feel very fine while it is going on and have a feeling of life and death and mortality and immortality, and after it is over I feel very sad but very fine.”
