Monday night, not too bad! (when on Wednesday the holidays start!)

Walking home, when the weather is gorgeous as today…and just the fact that it’s light and dry seem such fabulous things…

Last week I read these short stories…incredibly well written…no avvocato Guerrieri here…but really cool setting…

Mr Goldfinch

Today I received the most delightful visit: a goldfinch hosted a solo concert for me while I was having coffee…True, I miss my blackbirds and also the swallows zooming around (all gone back to Africa? already? no wonder, with last week’s cold weather)…but today I heard a different, quite sophisticated song and there he was, Mr Goldfinch! He came over our balcony, did a fast U-turn, went back to the neighbors opposite, and then headed towards the Rhine…

It is just the second time in my life I get to see them live…the first time was on a Summer early evening…I was leaving the office, I badged out and there they were, a dozen of them, chatting in the grass, just outside the HQ’s gate. They whirled away in a kaleidoskope of reds and yellows and beiges….

I just finished reading “Una burla riuscita” and all those mini-tales of sparrows and swallows are still whirling in my mind…frrr…frr….

Sunday afternoon

Frantic activity.

I always wonder what they dream about…

…most probably blackbirds, butterflies and dragonflies…but as soon as the click! of the camera goes off, they wake up…

Beesgarten

I leave my guest bees in good hands…

P1230999

…the pantry is well stocked…

P1230997…provided they manage to escape from Mimmino’s attentions…

P1230996

….hopefully the weather will be neither too wet, nor too backing hot….

Italo Svevo, as torn as BerlinRomExpress…

P1230992

After many, many years I am back home. Italo Svevo…I had all the time to forget everything I read and studied when aged 14. Reading Svevo again now has a completely different meaning.
