SELECTED PICTURES FROM A GONE MONTH.
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?

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,
|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 …
