“If on a Summer’s morning ‘He & She’…”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

giphy10<<It will be Summer — eventually.
Ladies — with parasols —
Sauntering Gentlemen — with Canes —
And little Girls — with Dolls —
Will tint the pallid landscape —
As ‘twere a bright Bouquet —
Thro’ drifted deep, in Parian —
The Village lies — today —
The Lilacs — bending many a year —
Will sway with purple load —
The Bees — will not despise the tune —
Their Forefathers — have hummed —
The Wild Rose — redden in the Bog —
The Aster — on the Hill
Her everlasting fashion — set —
And Covenant Gentians — frill —
Till Summer folds her miracle —
As Women — do — their Gown —
Of Priests — adjust the Symbols —
When Sacrament — is done >>
– Emily Dickinson –

Apparently, from accurate market research , inSummer the readers multiply compared to all…

“Haru And Cherry Blossoms”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Hanami (lit. “flower viewing”) is the Japanese traditional habit of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, flowers (“hana”) in this case almost always referring to those of the cherry (“sakura”) or, less frequently, plum (“ume”) trees. From the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan, and around the first of February on the island of Okinawa. [1]

Have you ever attended theflowering of the cherry trees?

nev2bpeUnfortunately, I did.tumblr_n53rkxfkyu1sat0smo1_250 In Rome, at the EUR’s lake, a couple ofsprings ago . Do not get me wrong, it is one of the best spectacles in the world , but as I mentioned in another place, for me Spring is a real challenge to survival !
And a “pollen waterfall” that runs direct into my respiratory system is not exactly the romantic image that you would expect when you think of the cherry trees in bloom .

“Chocolat, Pralines & Cinnamon’s Scent”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

 Graphic by: Federica

The streets full of lights , the cheeks flushed , the hands rubbing between the gloves , the music that creeps in every corner of the decorated streets .
There are those who criticize it , those who love it , those who try to ignore it , who are waiting for it the whole year , butChristmascertainly does not get unnoticed .

The ads become all themed , kids are eager to get presents , loneliness runs over those who do not want to share .
Sitting in a corner of a chocolate shop , 12warm and protected from the elements and resentments, you can order afilled cup of delicious hot brown liquid plenty of cream, a varied assortment of small bon – bon and throw yourself into the soft romance ” Chocolatby Joanne Harris[1]no, even if Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche…

“The Granma ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’ “

https://youtu.be/IwWUOmk7wO0       When my grandparents were still healthy, my brother, my parents and I used to drive on the highway at least one weekend a month to visit them.

“The Fitzek’s Therapy (with Chocolate)”

https://youtu.be/xanCvQysRgc   My friends and I for some years have got into the habit of making a "wish list" for the birthday and for Christmas, in order to be sure to make and receive only what we like, but above all to not collect spares.

“Skipped Christmas with Cookies and Margarita”

When I watch the TV series set in warm places like Australia or California and I find the Christmas episode, I get a great envy. I can’t tolerate the cold, and as much as I like the snow, hot chocolate and the front of the fireplace, I would exchange all this immediately and without regret … Continua a leggere “Skipped Christmas with Cookies and Margarita”

“A tree, a plaid and Battenberg cake’s smell”

  “I like autumn. The drama of it; the golden lion roaring through the back door of the year, shaking its mane of leaves. A dangerous time; of violent rages and deceptive calm, of fireworks in the pockets and conkers in the fist.” [1] https://youtu.be/XpqjEnRU6uM   Do you believe in magic?

“Sometimes the only way to stay Sane is to go a little Crazy”

“In a strange way we were free. We'd reached the end of the line. We had nothing more to lose. Our privacy, our liberty, our dignity: all of this was gone and we were stripped down to the bare bones of our selves” [1] I do not often see the film first - beautiful, exciting, attractive: … Continua a leggere “Sometimes the only way to stay Sane is to go a little Crazy”

“London Calling: La Trilogia di Cormoran Strike”

Londra è una delle città che preferisco al mondo. Ci sono stata 9 volte, in tutte le stagioni, ci ho anche vissuto per un po’: l’ho vista nella nebbia di Ottobre, sotto la neve di Gennaio, nella pioggia di Agosto e nell’afa di Giugno. Ho esplorato la parte turistica e quella di chi ci vive, … Continua a leggere “London Calling: La Trilogia di Cormoran Strike”
