Three long years have passed since Ari F started this bog with a hopeful project in her mind. She had time to publish only a few introductory pages and six posts from 2015/11/06 until 2016/01/07, but left many drafts more or less complete –which I edited, sometimes finished, and published for her in her name. Many of… Continue reading Three years of ‘Something Beyond’
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
I have only three drafts left to correct and complete for posting on this blog before taking a break in August 13th. I do need a break. I think as well that Ariel herself would want me to stop and rest –at least with respect to this blog of hers. This is not a draft… Continue reading The Last Nice Picture

As a matter of fact, quite a few women in Delvaux’s paintings of the two last… Continue reading A Pictorial Tribute – Delvaux’s “Ari”, and a sort of family portrait
[This is a posthumous post -as every other one published here by Arishej after August 13th, 2016-. It was published, almost exactly a year ago: 31st december 2015, on a social network, as a New Year’s greeting . It’s well worth a re-posting now when we are close to begin a new year.] There is… Continue reading It’s a Magical World indeed
Verrà la morte e avrà i tuoi occhi [Death will come and will have your eyes] Cesare Pavese – 1950 .
