I am listening to music with my super headphones 🎧 in order to escape from the boredom and exhaustion of Friday night, and to retreat into beautiful rhythms. It’s been a long week, but today I got back home happy and in high spirit. The best fruit of these last two weeks is this, together with all the things that it brought with it 🎙🎶 <- We have talked about art, music, and people. The things that I love.
Always up with music!I couldn’t make it without you.
The most depressing Monday of the year they say, and I think they are not wrong. Today, Monday 15th January, here in Cambridge, it has been one of those so over-rainy and dark days. I’ve been working, working, working. I like this job, I feel lucky, but I’m feeling tired, tired, tired. My day here never opens with the light you would expect every new day, and it is super short (as well as cold). After work, exhausted, I rush home. Dinner and zero energy. I have to batten down the hatches. I’m just trying to understand how. Together with my energies, even my hormones are now dead, they said “Gi ‘! Come on..”, and then they committed suicide.
If there’s something that makes me feel at home, that is the celebration by which my city welcomes the new year 🍾 🎉 the thousand powerful colours that, for so long, from the stroke of midnight onwards, crowd the sky above the already bright windows of Naples: the noisy and colorful fireworks that always gladly cast out the old year’s fatigue and welcome the new one, “i botti” as we call them here.
And if you can stand with your head up together with the people you love, then everything is even more magical.
Hello 2018, nice to meet you! You already have a name that I prefer to that of your predecessor. Please do me a favour, be good! (*in Neapolitan: f ‘o’ brav) ..🤗
The Cassata is a famous Sicilian dessert made of almond paste, ricotta cheese, and sponge cake. Here is the recipe I found online that I like to accompany for you with a short video on the final trimmings … 😋
It has been a long time since I was on this blog, but I am still here in Cambridge. I have been working a lot. I am happy with this but the chronic fatigue after the working day is taking me away from these pages. I do not complain and keep going.
The girl you’re going to see in this short video is Kasumi. She’ll be staying at my place for a few days. She’s a young lady who does not really love men, and when we go out together, she keeps them all away! 😬
But for me it is important she gets along with my partner who in his own way, and with commitment, tries to conquer her.. 😂
