  1. ❤ the demonstration that there is a difference between eroticism and vulgarity

    • Considering how far out and off profanity has degenerate in the last couple of decades….Je t’aime, moi non plus is like the difference between the Gioconda and any of the many pornographic expressions, especially in punk rock, and any vulgar reproduction on stage and off…there is purr love, manifested, invoked, and inferred in this beautiful melody, and ancestral words and feelings! Otherwise why would the falcity of the establishment ban it, censured it for two decades…just as it did with Arthur Miller’s “THE TROPIC OF CAPRICORN”?
      I ALWAYS ENJOYED THE TRUTH OF LOVE THE ALMIGHTY IN JE T’AIME MOI NON PLUS (which in translation means “I love you, I don’t love you anymore” )….especially the part with the kidneys, since as a man, I will never know for sure the depth of a woman’s love: its extend, its totality, its natural beauty and maximum intensity…indeed, as men we can’t grasp the whole reality that love makes a woman!
      Thanks for sharing with me your deep feelings!

      • Mine too…a pity that there is an ocean between us…better yet said55: Seas and Lands… I enjoyed reading few of your posts and find them interesting too bad I need an translator for almost each other word, as I never learned Italian properly. I can make out though a lot of your desire to make your deep feeling known! Isn’t art after all the work of discovering the universal beauty of the true self?
