il profumo della vita, dell'amore e del caffè.Giorgia Stella Buongiorno!

È l’inizio di un giorno normale, ma è sempre un giorno speciale se possiamo ancora vedere i colori, sentire i rumori, se possiamo ancora respirare il profumo della vita, dell’amore e del caffè.

Buongiorno!

Something is wrong with WordPress!

No Sir it is not not okay!

There is a glich: when you try to publish a new post… The YouTube linked video disappears and the post is published void of content, only with its generic title.

It is important to view every post by checking out the content of your posts, as one cannot expect everything to be taken care of by some force in the universe, virtual or real…

Solution: copy the link to your video on the clipboard before pressing the linking of the video you are uploading to WordPress. When you check your post see that your video exists…and if it doesn’t: paste the copied link in the content of your post, then view the post to make sure that the video is there and functional.

Note: If in the process the applicaton fails report it, don’t just OK it…because it really isn’t okay for these things to happen! No sir it is not!

Thank you for your attention!

No Sir it is not not okay!

No Sir, it is not okay!

The Traitor
Leonard Cohen
LYRICS
Now the Swan it floated on the English river
Ah the Rose of High Romance it opened wide
A sun tanned woman yearned me through the summer
And the judges watched us from the other side
I told my mother “Mother I must leave you
Preserve my room but do not shed a tear
Should rumour of a shabby ending reach you
It was half my fault and half the atmosphere”
But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever
And the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame
She said at last I was her finest lover
And if she withered I would be to blame
The judges said you missed it by a fraction
Rise up and brace your troops for the attack
Ah the dreamers ride against the men of action
Oh see the men of action falling back
But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment
I kissed her lips as though I thirsted still
My falsity had stung me like a hornet
The poison sank and it paralyzed my will
I could not move to warn all the younger soldiers
That they had been deserted from above
So on battlefields from here to Barcelona
I’m listed with the enemies of love
And long ago she said “I must be leaving,
Ah but keep my body here to lie upon
You can move it up and down and when I’m sleeping
Run some wire through that Rose and wind the Swan”
So daily I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there, I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
And people call me traitor to my face

General Comment:

Well I guess, it is fundamentally positive, and for a long time I just amaze myself at the beauty of the methaphore, the idea of the world as a stage, as the scene of a quest, in which the spectators are the judges as well, then I heard Leonard Cohen’s explaantion of the line of thought that made him write the poem. It goes like this:

“It was called “The traitor”. It was about the feeling that we have of betraying some mission that we were mandated to fulfill, and being unable to fulfill it, and then coming to understand that the real mandate was not to fulfill it, and that the deeper courage was to stand guiltless in the predicament in which you found yourself”.
It talks about the unvoidable predicament of failure from without, and the only right posture when one’s faced with a situation in which one cannot but fail: standing guiltless, in the predicament in which you find yourself. I think that is positive: not blaming yourself for outcomes of which you could not fully control.

My Interpretation:

What the Traitor has betrayed is the ideal of love. His ‘scarlet fever’ is lust, but when it is satisfied by ‘lingering on her thighs’, the Traitor is shamed. He recognises that other young men go off to battle without high ideals and they too become ‘the enemies of love’.
Lovely metaphors – great Leonard Cohen.

LYRICS

Say something I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one if you want me to
Anywhere I would have followed you
Say something I’m giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I’m still learning love
Just starting to crawl

Say something I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would have followed you
Say something I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye

Say something I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would have followed you

Say something I’m giving up on you
Say something I’m giving up on you
Say something
