A sitar player with his lady falcon in Cambridge

Today while I was walking in the city centre I met Paul and his beautiful lady, Duffy. ๐Ÿฆ…๐Ÿ˜ Paul is an amazing Sitar player. The special stringed instrument is popular in northern India. Iโ€™ve felt in love with its magical music and the super clever falcon who is Paulโ€™s loyal partner ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต

Pulcinella in Cambridge

It’s been a while since last time I wrote here, ‘sorry about that’ , as they say here. The end and the beginning of the year have been quite complicated for me and winter has been more severe, darker and colder than ever…so I am so happy to be here.

I feel good today despite the Monday will be soon upon us. I’ll just give a little summery with some pictures. ๐Ÿ‘‰ it looks like spring is here with all this higher temperature and more light. Cambridge and life take on a different aspect and immediately I fell lighter and more enthusiastic.

At work, it’s going well. The people I work with lately are special, endowed with an emotional sensitivity that I feel akin to. It does make a difference ..! This is the latest Radio Dante show that we recorded on Thursday with two of them, Felicea and Daniele. The subject: Venice, Tintoretto and the amour!l After having uploaded the podcast online on Friday afternoon a sweet little curly angel came to see me…my Poppy! โค๏ธ The next one will be a quite hard week, so I’ve been very lucky to recharge the batteries with the positive and magical energies of this amazing girl. I am grateful to have among the ‘beautiful souls’ who are part of my life here she and her mothers ( I am always lucky!)

Then, on Saturday (yesterday) I had a long day at work cheered up by the guy you can see in the picture below with me ๐Ÿ‘‡

Luca Luciano, Neapolitan, is a successful clarinettist and composer here in the UK as well as in Italy. I interviewed him on the radio and also in video. It has been a nice breath of fresh air. The lively, dark and intelligent eyes of the Neapolitan people are unmistakable. I do not understand what it is. It is that land, it is as if burning charcoal from Vesuvius are in the eyes of every Neapolitan. Anyway, what a city of art and beauty is my Naples! ๐Ÿ’™One hour later, I was able to attend his concert where he was in duo with Yuko Osedo at the piano at Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge. Wonderful.To take the edge off , I have had a glass of prosecco with Giulia from above, at the Six Brasserie (what a beautiful discovery!)This morning, โ˜€๏ธ sunny again. Lunch at the Thai restaurant ( here I am in the toilet of the restaurant) โ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธโ˜๏ธ

and a walk around … (I will have this absurd bell ! I will bring it to my mum!) ๐Ÿ˜Ž

-For now, over and out. I hope I have made up for the absence. ๐Ÿ’‹
