♬ Laura Pausini – SCATOLA

LYRIC

Ti ricordi quando noi eravamo solo una
In un viaggio un po’ insicuro per la nostra età, e
Dormivamo anche di schiena, perché non ci preoccupava
Il crescere o il doverci separareE ballavamo sulle note di Billie Jean
Rompendo le doghe del letto
Truccandoci in un modo orrendo
Io ti dicevo che volevo cantare
Tu cosa volevi fare?
E tu cosa volevi fare?Ti ho lasciato in una scatola per poterti ricordare
Perché cucire di ricordi il sole serve a non dimenticare
Ti ho trovato in una scatola, c’era il tuo numero di cellulare
Ti ho cercato ma niente da fare, chissà se mi hai dimenticataMa io non ti ho dimenticata, io non ti ho dimenticata
Ricordati che io, ricordati che tu, siamo la stessa cosaTi ricordi quando noi fissavamo il cielo scuro
Chiedendoci cosa ci fosse oltre, e
Giocavamo con il buio, l’innocenza e le paure
Cercando un senso a tutte quelle coseE leggevamo solo libri sull’amore
Sognando le più belle storie
Amando le più misteriose
Poi ti dicevo mi volevo sposare
Tu cosa volevi fare?
E tu cosa volevi fare?Ti ho lasciato in una scatola per poterti ricordare
Perché coprire di ricordi il male serve a non dimenticare
Ti ho trovato in una scatola, c’era il tuo numero di cellulare
Ti ho cercato ma niente da fare, chissà se mi hai dimenticata
Chissà se mi hai dimenticataMa io non ti ho dimenticata, io non ti ho dimenticata
Ricordati che io, ricordati che tu, siamo la stessa cosa
Ma io non ti ho dimenticata, io non ti ho dimenticata
Ricordati che io, ricordati che tu, siamo la stessa cosa

25th January ’22 – Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle

The Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle is a feast celebrated during the liturgical year on 25 January, recounting the conversion. This feast is celebrated in the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches. This feast is at the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, an international Christian ecumenical observance that began in 1908, which is an octave (an eight-day observance) spanning from 18 January (observed in Anglican and Lutheran tradition as the Confession of Peter, and in the pre-1961 Roman Catholic Church as the feast of the Chair of Saint Peter at Rome) to 25 January. In rural England, the day functioned much like groundhog day does in the modern-day United States. Supposed prophecies ranged from fine days predicting good harvests, to clouds and mists signifying pestilence and war in the coming months.

The collect in the Roman Missal is: O God, who taught the whole world through the preaching of the blessed Apostle Paul, draw us, we pray, nearer to you through the example of him whose conversion we celebrate today, and so make us witnesses to your truth in the world.

There is always—-and I do mean ALWAYS! One. But in this case (this year) There are TWO! So annoying! These two walk over the fences like the fences aren’t even there! At least twice a day! Such a pain! I looked back, as Terry and I were pushing the cows back into the field and […]

LYRIC

Corre una lacrima
sulla lama della spada di Ghemon
si alza in volo un airone
solo in mezzo alla campagna
La città va più lenta del solito
e è tornato il nostro amico da Milano
ora vive qui
ed è felice di cantare canzoni

Ma che splendida normalità dici che è la primavera my friend
Lisa mette a letto i bambini
poi va sul balcone per un po’ di aria fresca
mentre passa la pubblicità
nelle case della gente che cena
ti va una bibita, un po’ di acqua gassata

Oggi sono stato bene
sono stato bene anche da solo
con il pianoforte e mille cose in testa
che non mi deludono mai
che non mi abbandonano mai

Corre una lacrima
sulla tesa del cappello di Jigen
vola in aria un pallone
un tango tutto pieno di sabbia
la città è più calda del solito e
è il momento di andare lontano
fare la spesa, fare la coda Lupin è di nuovo scappato

Ma che splendida normalità
dici che è la primavera my friend
Lisa mette a letto i bambini
poi va sul balcone per un po’ di aria fresca
mentre passa la pubblicità
nelle case della gente che cena
ti va una bibita, un po’ di acqua gassata

Oggi sono stato bene
sono stato bene anche da solo
con il pianoforte e mille cose in testa
che non mi deludono mai
che non mi abbandonano mai

Ho anche comprato un quadro blu

Oggi sono stato bene
sono stato bene anche da solo
con il pianoforte e mille cose in testa
che non mi deludono mai
che non mi abbandonano mai

Sunday Spillover: The Sun, Moon & a Whole Lot of Snow — Empty Nest Homesteading

I can hardly believe it’s Sunday already! Well, actually I can because the pups let out a pre-dawn group howl because for some reason they think they should wake up the entire planet early on the weekend days. 🤨 I assured them that they are not cute that early and no, they weren’t getting leftover […]

Sunday Spillover: The Sun, Moon & a Whole Lot of Snow — Empty Nest Homesteading

The Tension between the United States and Russia is skyrocketing – Russia wants to invade Ukraine.

For several weeks, the possibility of a new Russian invasion of Ukraine has become increasingly concrete. Since last November, the Russian government has been massing thousands of soldiers near the border of eastern Ukraine, threatening to intervene if the West, or rather NATO, does not decide to give up keeping Ukraine under its influence, and therefore does not show with clarity of wanting to give up the process of “enlargement to the east”. In recent days, concerns about a possible Russian intervention have grown even more intense and there are reasons to believe that Vladimir Putin’s regime is indeed considering a military operation of some kind.

The first thing to bear in mind is that any Russian military operation in Ukraine would not be something new, nor particularly unexpected.

Over the past fifteen years, Putin’s Russia has shown on several occasions that it is willing to use force to guarantee its influence in neighboring countries that were part of the Soviet Union: it happened for example in 2008 in Georgia, where Russia intervened by pushing back the Georgian troops who had invaded South Ossetia; and it happened in 2014 in Crimea, when men with covered faces were sent by Putin to take control of the Ukrainian peninsula, then annexed by a very controversial referendum.

The second thing to consider is that Ukraine is particularly important to Russia, and has been for some time.

Putin would like NATO, the military alliance of which the United States is the informal leader, to provide an official guarantee of renouncing Ukraine to join the organization (although no one is willing to do so for now) and therefore expand its own. presence to the east. In recent days, several analysts have mentioned the long article published by Putin last July in which the Russian president spoke of the “historic unity between Russians and Ukrainians” and argued, in essence, that Ukraine belonged to Russia and that the formation of a Ukrainian national identity detached from Russia was to be considered an “anti-Russia project”.

The situation that has arisen today is particularly worrying for several reasons.

LYRICS
I got lost in the wilderness
I thought I was surely falling apart
The pain you caused cut so deep
Truly was a work of art

I don’t care what they say, I’m gonna do it anyway
(Oh, oh)
It’s the only thing I see, always staring back at me
(Oh)

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Pulled me in with your words so sweet
Every time I ignore the sign
Redemption’s mine on the day I leave
Falling for you was my only crime

I don’t care what they say, I’m gonna do it anyway
(Oh, oh)
It’s the only thing I see, always staring back at me
(Oh)

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?

(Am I going under?)
(Should this heart surrender?)
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?
