Friday Feast #129

What was one of the fashion fads when you were a teenager?

Long hair, hip huggers, and mood rings.

Name one thing you think people assume about you when they first meet you.

I don’t make assumptions. So I could not possibly assume what another person thinks when they meet me.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how hard do you work?

I worked as a 10 most of my life. In the past two years I would have to say it fluctuates between a 1 and a 7 depending on the day.

If you were given a free 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl to sell anything you currently own, what would you advertise?

I don’t own anything of value to sell. I don’t watch television.
I would not benefit from selling the book on my sidebar.
I would advertise “Flying Lessons” so that more people could enrich their lives.

Fill in the blank: I love to ________ when it is _________.

I love to sleep when it is raining.
I love to walk on the beach when it is sunset.
I love to watch the sun when it is rising over the mountains.
I love to watch the moon when it is full.
I love to sit by the fire when it is cold.
I love to sail when it is windy.

Adriano Celentano


Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together. ~ Anais Nin

Adriano Celentano
From Wikipedia
Adriano Celentano (born January 6, 1938) is an Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, and TV host. He was born in Milan at 14 Gluck Street (about which he later wrote the song "Il ragazzo della via Gluck"), his parents were from Puglia and had moved north for work. Adriano is known for making Raggedy swoon.

Il ragazzo della via Gluck-Live Berlin 1994

Adriano is heavily influenced by his idol, Elvis Presley, and the 1950s rock revolution. For the last 40 years he has retained his popularity in Italy, selling millions of records and appearing in numerous TV shows and movies.

L’emozione non ha voce
(Emotion does not have voice)

Posting the entire lyrics and translation would make the post to long.
I am posting the first stance and chorus in Italian.

Io non so parlar d'amore
l'emozione non ha voce
E mi manca un po il respiro
se ci sei c'e troppa luce

Tra le mie braccia dormirai
serena mente
ed e importante questo sai
per sentirci pienamente noi
pienamente noi uhu uhu

I am posting the best translation to English for the first stance and chorus in English.

I do not know how to speak of love
the emotion does not have voice
And a breath lacks me (Love takes my breath away)
We are there and too much light (Love is bright and fills the heart)

Between my arms you will sleep
serene mind (peaceful mind)
and important this you know
in order to feel totally to us (feeling two people to become as one)
Totally we uhu uhu (totally us)

Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; not a philosophy of life, but a living presence. ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
