27

Today is my little sister Ancuţa’s birthday, she is 27 years old! Happy birthday, sis, I love you!

Lurking around

There’s too much time between my posts. I know it and I hate it. I wish I had more things to say, things to get out of my system.

Err, in fact there are too many things I’d love to get out of my system, but nobody wants to know about my personal problems. Most posts of “blogging tips” type will tell you that.

And as a matter of fact, I’m really really tired of talking about my problems, even thinking about them, but unfortunately I can’t help it. A few days ago I heard for the first time a song of Adriano Celentano called Miseria Nera, although you could probably count on the fingers of one hand the songs I’ve never heard before. The chorus speaks better than I could ever do it myself:

“Io vendo il cuore<br/> Io vendo, per non morire<br/> La vita e bella,<br/> Ma e bella per pochi<br/> E non per me.”

“I will sell my heart<br/> I’ll sell it not to die<br/> Life is beautiful,<br/> It is beautiful for few<br/> And not for me.”

Listen to a fragment of this great song on the Clan Celentano website.
