A Spring Light Poem Magic

20170303_160009

My bulbs are “springing ” out

A light exists in spring 
Not present on the year 
At any other period. 
When March is scarcely here 

A color stands abroad 
On solitary hills 
That science cannot overtake, 
But human naturefeels. 

It waits upon the lawn; 
It shows the furthest tree 
Upon the furthest slope we know; 
It almost speaks to me. 

Then, as horizons step, 
Or noons report away, 
Without the formula of sound, 
It passes, and we stay: 

A quality of loss 
Affecting our content, 
As trade had suddenly encroached 
Upon a sacrament.

by Emily Dickinson

NY Resolutions: Sewing Machine & Elena Ferrante

thread-931889_1920

It is so relaxing to stay home for some days. Beside working (which it happens I like doing… despite all), I can find some time for myself too. After considering the thousand of little works always there waiting for me since ever, yesterday I:

  1. Finished reading Belgravia by Julian Fellowes, which I will write today a review about; embassy_home_night
  2. Have started reading L’Amica Geniale by Elena Ferrante  (after many books in English,  I have gone back to my mother tongue, hoping not to be disappointed after all this international ad on this series); 15c681eb-c76a-4803-952e-26be3a4a8988img400-1
  3. SEWED! I took out my old mechanical sewing machine and converted an old tablecloth in 5 small breakfast tablecloths, taking out my ETSY brand [manu’fatto], which I don’t create any more due to lack of time. What a delight! I so much love creating and reconverting old stuff in  totally new or partly new stuff. And I can consider myself satisfied with the result, which you can see here below. sewing-1332860_1280

And You?  If you are so lucky to have 3 days of holidays, what have you done to accomplish something you have dreamt for during the last time?

Waiting for you 💖

Dom

The Rosie Effect ~ by Graeme Simsion

41gg2ni0vol-_sx324_bo1204203200_This has been to me even more brilliant than the first book, The Rosie Project. I love Don (43, Aussie, now living in NY), and I believe I would marry him if I could. Even if he tends to embarrass her wife, Rosie, or even if he doesn’t get basic social laws. Sometimes. What you need to know that he is really investing a lot of energy and effort on a new project… BUD project – Baby Under Development project.

The whole story isn’t predictable at all. Besides Rosie and Don, the reader follows the lives and familiar/love events of many other characters, which represent ordinary people difficulties in life and marriage. It is like a perfect photo of all that happens around us and among our families too.

There is no spoiler here, but if you loved The Rosie Project, I highly recommend you to read this incredibly hilarious, witty, realistic and well-written novel. It is Christimas time, time for a good read!
