Dream is collapsing

What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere. (Inception)View full post »

Songs to Berlin

Soon I must leave you, my Berlin. Must again travel into the desolate cities. Soon I shall sit on the distant hill tops. In dense woods carve your name. Farewell, Berlin, with your bold fires. Farewell, your streets full of adventures. Who has known as much as I have of your pain. Saloons, you, I press you to my breast. (Songs To Berlin – Alfred Lichtenstein)View full post »

La Sezione Profonda

“E’ perché non sapete cercare,” gli si avvicinò grattandosi il naso aquilino. “Puntate tutto sui muscoli,” batté entrambi i palmi sulle spalle possenti di Lupo, “e niente sulla testa,” si indicò una tempia. “Foglie, nettare, miele, bacche. C’è un mondo là fuori.” (La Sezione Profonda, Mario Santamaria) *** fotografie della Presentazione del Libro: “la Sezione Profonda” di Mario Santamaria.

the road not taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how wayView full post »

All the stars are a riot of flowers

“If you love a flower which happens to be on a star, it is sweet at night to gaze at the sky. All the stars are a riot of flowers.”  [Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince] Giardini della Landriana, Ardea (Roma).View full post »

A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM

“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend More than cool reason ever comprehends. The lunatic, the lover and the poet Are of imagination all compact: One sees more devils than vast hell can hold, That is, the madman: the lover, all as frantic, Sees Helen’s beauty in a brow of Egypt: The poet’s eye, in fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven; And as imagination bodies forth The forms of things unknown, theView full post »
