Tomorrow is “La Diada de Tots Sants” here in Catalunya –exactly the same as All Hallows’ Day or All Saints’ Day for most Irish, British and American people–. Right now is its eve here, and I am thinking of my own dead ones and burning candles in their memory. One in particular is still sprightly… Continue reading Last-ditch Effort

Post in Celebration: Some strayed “Music for Ariel” – From great joy to greater sorrow
Yesterday I realized that this blog was started by my late sister in November 2015 (two years, and a bit more than a week, ago).

I recently posted a fragment of this oil painting by Alyssa Monks –Morning after II– on my personal blog (here. I’m also using it now as a header pic for my “posts page”, with a touch of green and violet added), but I am sure Ari would have posted it differently; better than me; like… Continue reading A Painting with Soul: ‘Morning After II’ by Alyssa Monks
Xan mo ilo! – Eat my heart!
Xan mo ilo, kamlale! Pale si ma e zhivindi jag… These are Rromani words meaning “Eat my heart, my beloved ones! While I still keep the flame of life…” So why do I want my heart eaten?… How?… By whom?… To the first –rhetorical– question my answer is simple: because I need love now beyond… Continue reading Xan mo ilo! – Eat my heart!

[In memoriam Ari Fontrodona ] – – – – [The images come from Charlie Chaplin Picture Database – these ones were scaned by Cineteca di Bologna as part… Continue reading The Price is Love
