Nane tsoxa – I’ve no skirt

[First posted in November 29th, 2016. Reblogged now, out of nostalgia, after listening to this music again. To the few who still follow this blog and were not here back then, in 2016, I just recommend to enjoy the nerve of the music, the spell of the Rromani language, the flare of a person now… Continue reading Nane tsoxa – I’ve no skirt

The previous ‘Morning After’, by Alyssa Monks

[This post on contemporary American painting is a direct follow-up of another one on this same blog: A Painting with Soul: ‘Morning After II’ by Alyssa Monks.] The oil below was painted ten years before the other, and does not seem as accomplished to my eyes; neither technically nor aesthetically (but is still very good!). The… Continue reading The previous ‘Morning After’, by Alyssa Monks

Where Angels Go

Today, now, is Christmas Eve and I feel the need to recall my sister (not that I do not recall her every day, but today is special) and also make a post for her, on her own blog. So here you are, my dear; some edited pics according to your taste…: and there you go… Continue reading Where Angels Go

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 missed the congratulation badge sent here from WordPress:   To celebrate it, I will rely on coincidence (a post on Peter Greenaway by an Irish acquaintance of mine), on… Continue reading Post in Celebration: Some strayed “Music for Ariel” – From great joy to greater sorrow

Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

–This is a very fragmentary draft left by Ariel, and I do not feel capable to complete it beyond the few notes I have added to this moment –mostly to make it understandable and more or less presentable–. The subject and the fictional characters Ariel chose are so deeply hers that any tentative I could… Continue reading Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

A Painting with Soul: ‘Morning After II’ by Alyssa Monks

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

Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – A republication of my first post here

Revisiting tonight this blog of my late sister (in a late hour of the night, too), I find that my first post here, from August 16th, 2016, precedes directly my last one, published just a while ago. Both of them speak about the same —or almost—… Eight months and ten days ago, three days after… Continue reading Should I Fear a Dreadful Angel? – A republication of my first post here

Angelic Eroticism

A personal view about an Angel by Francesco Jerace One of my favourite sculptures representing overtly masculine angels is a marble group by Francesco Jerace, located in the Cappella Greco at Cosenza, Calabria, Italy. It is known as Fanciullo Morto e Angello (Dead Boy and Angel) and was made in 1900. The grace of the Angel… Continue reading Angelic Eroticism

Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light

In Loving Memory of Ari Fontrodona – Called to meet the Father (or Mother), and our own parents, on August 13th – 2016. May she be in Grace and perfect happiness, as she always intended —and often accomplished— in her earthly life, in spite of everything. When she named this blog SOMETHING BEYOND, she really… Continue reading Before Crossing the Dark Veil into the Light
