sunday wheather report.may 23, 2021

I got in Venice throught the Liberty Bridge looking at the Lagoon that show with low tide: there some fishermen working collecting oysters, each with half a body in the water.
When I was child I thought that Venice were surrounded by deep sea, a sort of ocean around the old city, but a day I saw the bottom of the lagoon emerge and Venice somehow lost his image, a bit childhood disappointment.

As an amateur farmer I enjoy working in the garden in the afternoons during these months of lockdwon. Some economists argue that if a professional gardener does the gardening work then the national product increases. On the other hand, if an amateur does it, the national product does not increase.

My workmate is a blackbird who warns me when it’s time to stop working. It happens that he approaches me and begins to whistle. Or scrape the ground for worms letting me know it’s his turn.

Sometimes I find worms and let them be captured by the blackbird who looks at me rather surprised that I give up such a delicacy.

The blackbird then looks at me and I bet he thinks I’m really a fool. How can anyone give up such a delicacy?

WHEATHER REPORT. MARCH 25, 421 A.D. and beyond…

Today is the 1600th anniversary birthday of Venice.

Alot of years maybe in the exact location where now I am writing on a virtual computing keyboard, on that date (march 25 421 a.d.) some ancient ancestors of mine had had the idea… but what idea?

Nobody knows. History is strange matter, it is not only matter of surviving instict to barbaric invasions after the fall of Ancient Roman Empire.

Anyway here are some pictures I took them two weeks ago due to the current pandemic covid-19 lockdown.

The Saint Mark Lion at Venice Arsenal, on the wall a quote by Dante’s Divina Commedia poem.

Saint George island seen at Riva degli Schiavoni

Crew people baskstage staff at Theater La Fenice

Ordinary life in the old city

Before (ancient time) and after (today) view near Tintoretto’s House

This one is for aficionados of the genre. (Campo San Pantalon)

I know the times but I like to share with you all these snapshots

wheather report : last day of autumn 2020

Sometimes we talk and appear to be very smart. But suddenly someone explains what we said making us seem less smart than we thought: always we listen our own internal language then we speak. We need instead someone must explain what we really said.

catullus alley


Passer, deliciae meae puellae,
quicum ludere, quem in sinu tenere,
cui primum digitum dare appetenti
et acris solet incitare morsus,
cum desiderio meo nitenti
carum nescio quid lubet iocari,
et solaciolum sui doloris,
credo, ut tum gravis acquiescat ardor:
tecum ludere sicut ipsa possem
et tristis animi levare curas!
Gaio Valerio Catullo,
Carme II
catullus translated by rinaldo rasa
A sparrow together to my little young woman
kept on her lap for
her delight, she
plays with him
fingertips touch his beak, when I am
sad I would to be
like you my
little young woman
have a break
forgetting pain …
