Paradise Lost (Poetic thought by George-B)


Paradise Lost (Poetic thought by George-B)

We wandered out of Paradise
Hoping to find beyond
An archer, a trident, other broken hearts,
an onyx spear
bluer skies,
beyond all skies,
another word for…Love and
for  Home and Homebound

Well indeed for everything that we’ve abandoned
along the foot pass that we made
In search of the, now, lost Paradise.

We had it all, we wandered of,
and lost we thereof became,
In search of more splendid Paradise.

‘March days return with their covert light’ by Pablo Neruda (poems about March)


March days return with their covert light’,  by Pablo Neruda

March days return with their covert light, 
and huge fish swim through the sky,
vague earthly vapours progress in secret,
things slip to silence one by one.
Through fortuity, at this crisis of errant skies,
you reunite the lives of the sea to that of fire,
grey lurchings of the ship of winter
to the form that love carved in the guitar.
O love, O rose soaked by mermaids and spume,
dancing flame that climbs the invisible stairway,
to waken the blood in insomnia’s labyrinth,
so that the waves can complete themselves in the sky,
the sea forget its cargoes and rages,
and the world fall into darkness’s nets.

IL POSTINO- EL CARTERO (soundtrack) – Dedicated to all my friends!



Il Postino (también conocida como El cartero (y Pablo Neruda), El cartero de Neruda o simplemente El cartero) es una película en italiano de 1994 dirigida por Michael Radford la cual cuenta la historia real del poeta chileno Pablo Neruda y su relación con un simple cartero que aprende a amar la poesía. Está protagonizada por Philippe Noiret, Massimo Troisi y Maria Grazia Cucinotta.

Fue adaptada por Anna Pavignano, Michael Radford, Furio Scarpelli, Giacomo Scarpelli y Massimo Troisi de la novela Ardiente Paciencia de Antonio Skármeta. Skármeta ya había adaptado la novela para la pantalla en 1983 bajo el titulo “Ardiente paciencia“. La novela y la película están inspiradas en Chile con Neruda viviendo en la Isla Negra alrededor de 1970. Sin embargo Il Postino traslada la localización a Italia en los años 1950.

La música original de la película fue compuesta por Luis Enríquez Bacalov, quien ganó un Premio Oscar a la mejor banda sonora, luciéndose en la película el tema Madreselva, de Francisco Canaro. La película también obtuvo la nominación al mejor actor (Massimo Troisi), mejor director, mejor película y mejor guión adaptado.

El escritor y protagonista Massimo Troisi pospuso una cirugía cardíaca para poder terminar la filmación. El día después de que la misma fuera terminada, sufrió un ataque cardíaco que le causó la muerte.

El compositor mexicano Daniel Catán ha escrito una ópera basada en la obra.

Now is the right time to get GOOGLE BROWSER to have this wonderful writing translated in  your own idiom, wouldn’t you say? (I got it, and I know it works!)

 


Strawberry fields forever, Yeah!

Luna Florencia

I’m not a fan of graffiti, no matter how it’s done, but seeing quotes of songs from my all-time favourite band outside Abbey Road studios I was instantly taken. It was a beautiful reminder of just how influential the Beatles were and still are, but it also made me wish I’d been round to witness the Beatlemania 40 years ago.

Washington Irving on tears (and the feeling they speak about)


There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.

At one point in his espionage career, the former backup shortstop and catcher was tasked with helping to determine whether or not to assassinate whom? More… Discuss

Tilden Wins Popular Vote, Loses US Presidential Election (1877)

One of the most disputed presidential elections in American history was decided by a single electoral vote, which was likely awarded in an informal deal behind closed doors. Democratic candidate Samuel J. Tilden not only won the popular vote in the 1876 election, but secured 184 electoral votes to Republican Rutherford B. Hayes‘s 165—until a bitter, months-long political battle ended with Hayes being awarded 20 contested votes. What did the Democrats gain in the so-called Compromise of 1877More… Discuss

DEFINING THE METER


Defining the Meter

Adopted in France in the late 18th century, the meter is used today by much of the technologically developed world, making it an extremely successful example of both standardization and cooperation. However, the definition of the meter has changed several times. It was originally based, somewhat impractically, on a fraction of the Earth’s circumference and was later defined as the distance between two scratches on a bar of platinum-iridium alloy. What is the most recent definition of the meter? More… Discuss
