Not too many years ago I was a teenager student in an Art school, where we had a black and white darkroom (because once we were used to print pictures) and one of the coolest teacher ever.
A day this teacher started talking us of Italian Neorealism and showed us the 1951 movie “Miracle in Milan” by Vittorio De Sica. As often happens, I didn’t think to that movie for decades…until yesterday, when stone cold I had a look to the Zoo-sofa and I saw Alice enjoying a single ray of light while other pets were sleeping under they warm blankets. That single ray of light made her looking so blessed…and a scene of that movie was utterly back in my mind, and thanks to Youtube I can show to you too.
Here we are! Christmas is just round the corner, doesn’t matter if you’ll celebrate it watching the snow fall on swimming in the sea (although is so weird for me thinking to an hot-Christmas)…we want to wish you a wonderful Christmas.
It’s a grey Sunday morning again.
Pepe’s whining, Arturo’s caughing for his ashtma, Asia’s scared by the hair dryer noise, Alice’s sleeping, Tobia’s lost in his thoughts, so everything is as it usually is…except for parrots that are interestingly silent.
What about me? It’s a difficult question these days. I have finished a book I really loved “Kafka on the shore” by Haruki Murakami. Sometimes it happens to read the right book at the right time, and to find answers to questions floating in your head. I can’t say the book I am reading now is as much interesting and illuminating…so I’m guessing how wonderful it would be to be able to ALWAYS pick up just the “right” book at the bookstore…no more waste of time, no more that “so what?” feeling, no more sadness because a tree died for “…these books [that] have nothing to say”, no more that regrettable “Fahrenheit 451” impulse to phisically burn that awful book…”We must burn the books, Montag“!
So, inventors all over the world, please, can you do anything to solve my situation?
Another friend of the Zoo decided to take a picture for us, to show her appretiation and attention to our little hearts’ happiness. Thank you Ewa!
