Halloween party

5 11 2013

It was a dark evening , the segments of the moon lit up the whole town making it look like a scary place , bleak .

They were heard screaming and shouting of children impatient, with a crazy desire to show off the new Halloween costumes . From the corners of the streets, poking little boys dressed up as ghosts , skeletons and vampires with bags full of tasty candies . The festoons hanging from the balconies of many homes give Gothic atmosphere : evening of Halloween was perfect . The kitchens gave off an intense smell of pumpkin. Moms , intent on make up and dress their children made ​​lots of recommendations: back soon , be careful , do not go in desolate street … Groups of children knocking on the doors of the houses asking each time: “Trick or treat?” , Decorated their bags were full of tasty treats, candies, chocolates and sweets of various kinds. Piles of masks abounded in shop windows , some were monstrous others were funny and nice . The dim lights of the street lamps lit up as soon as the road crowded with people . A lot of confusion enveloped the streets even on the darkest, saddest , up to my ears. I had turned into a fantastic bat . The wings of the fabric of my costume swayed slightly with each breath of wind and the black of my clothes were scattered in the air. My bag was abundant with sweets, they had a good flavor , white , tasty. The night was getting thicker by wrapping everything in its darkness and bringing out the lanterns that glowed in the pumpkins smiling or grinning .

The redbreast

8 02 2013

Il pettirosso

You know, the winter days do not invite you to stroll outdoors. It ‘much better to sit in a comfortable chair in front of the warmth of the hearth, perhaps with a book and a fragrant herbal cap of tea.

From the window a look at the hills, the sky is gray. There is  air of snow!

And here it is! It’s the redbreast! The ancient symbol of the new year.

Jumps without fear on the ledge of the terrace in search of food, maybe cookie crumbs! It is really delicious!

If you feel too observed here it again for a quick it flight …

Then again, that its tics, insistent and repeated, as if to say … Hey! Hey! …. Here I am! I’m back! Two crumbs for me?

It’s funny the redbreast!

The reindeer Christmas

christmas-reindeer

There is a red light in the sky
neither small nor large!

Watch looks a bit there?
A reindeer goes down.
Light is his nose,
seems to be made just satin!
That reindeer pulls a sled,
while the snow falls thick.

Oh, oh, oh! There’s also Santa Claus!
that we want to bring a gift!
Falls down the chimney,
when children go to bed.
Leave a gift under the tree,
and will be a nice surprise!

Happy Christmas to all!

Tribute to the pumpkin

31 10 2012

I like the pumpkin, its consistency, its roundness in different forms and its vibrant colors.

Today there are still many doubts about the origins, the fact is that you, the pumpkin has always managed to find its own space in our midst.
Symbolizes abundance and fertility, prosperity and good health

Observing the impression of a vegetable with a strong and vigorous. In the growth phase clings, rises, is free and roving.

The pumpkin is considered a vegetable magic, appears in many legends it is said that in the past the giant, empty, they were used by sailors as buoys or floats for inexperienced swimmers.

It ‘an annual vegetable easy to grow, grows anywhere, even on poorer soils. Needs space and abundant and regular watering. While maintaining the dual nature of its flowers, it also brings about male flower and female flower, which together give rise to the through pollination.

In its various forms tickles curiosity and awakens the desire to discover what lies inside.

The pumpkin is a mine of minerals: Vitamin A, Iron, Potassium and Calcium, and a lot of fiber that make this vegetable a valuable natural product for our body.

The big fly!!

10 05 2012

picchio-verde-maggio-20121

Are 12.30 and is now going to take Alessia to school! The sun barely mentions to be seen, the air is warm!

I get in the car and start. I take the road to Montefiore, a couple of corners on the straight and here I see a bird on the opposite lane in danger of being hit by a car before embarking on a flight so close to the ground to rest on the bushes on the side of road. Intrigued from happening and I approach ….

But it is a green woodpecker!

He is bewildered but quiet, does not seem to hurt. But I am a little nervous.

I calm down!

I take a deep breath and then the woodpecker in my hands, I begin to caress it, it lets himself go! It seems almost tame or maybe just trying protection …

What a beautiful creature!

I invite it to fly, opening my hands, but seems unwilling or unable to fly, I will not abandon it to its fate and decide to take it with me to take care of it. It’s late, I have to run from Alessia!

I drive and I think, I ask myself questions. What life lesson does this mean? Things never happen by chance, it all makes sense. My thoughts run and now I arrived in Carassai. Alessia is excited, the woodpecker you cuddle and caress without fear, seems accustomed to contact with people, strange!

Let’s go back to the house, and after lunch we strive to build a shelter to our guest. Not having an aviary, we combine two cassettes that we usually use for the olive harvest, straw pallet, a small oak tree, and here’s dwelling Fly, this is the name chosen by Aessia, is ready.

Now we have to think about his nutrition, you have to put it back in force, we will be able to help it survive and take flight?

We are looking for small insects, but do not eat anything, then buy the mash for birds and Adriano, our dear friend, fond of bees, helps us to find the best solution for cues Fly. We use a bamboo stick into which we insert the mash.

Try and try again Fly, starts eating, puts the bill into the barrel and extends the language and begins to feed. This is also done.

We are happy! Shows great strength!

Fly bring in the garden and just put it on a large olive tree, he climbs to do great climber, reaching the top, on the topmost of all. We find that this is a feature of the woodpecker.

He just needs courage, then it is ready to soar into the sky, and live its life.

We take Fly back into the house, new snack, he eats right and left rubs its long beak, its colors are vibrant, now we also felt its “hand” seems to thank us. We see that the “cage” is the narrow, wants to go and discover the world.

Evening comes, the cuddle a bit before putting it on the trunk where it falls asleep hiding its head under its wing. How sweet and funny! Good night Fly.

At dawn is his shrill song that wakes us up!

Will definitely hungry! E ‘Alessia this time that the cue. “Mom, Dad eats”!! E ‘excited …. What a nice experience!!

Fly put back in a cage, is now even more lively than yesterday. I’ll take it in his hands, he struggles and starts to climb up on my arm, reaches the top of my head! I return whit Fly in the garden and try to put it on a young oak. Around us only the song of other birds that are there to stimulate his curiosity. Does not mention open wings! I take Fly again back into the house and put it back in the cage but I feel in my heart that he needs its freedom! Later we will try again.

More food and some cuddles, it seems tame.

After lunch we decided to try to fly it. This time we do not go in the garden, we support the railing of the large terrace of the penthouse, a light breeze blowing, the ideal situation is to catch the flight. Fly studying the situation, makes small movements, looks around curiously, is deciding what to do, but I’m sure that will take flight. We observe it all, Morena and Alessia encourage it, the seconds pass, perhaps a few minutes, Fly soars, it goes first to the grove of oaks, then turns left and goes to the house of Mario.

Fly wishes, see you soon, thanks for the beautiful life lesson you gave us!

A sign of love

29 03 2012


With the eyes of a child’s watch, there is silence around me, the air is fresh and fragrant.

They are the first days of spring. And here once again that nature leads me to think.

A cherry blossom and a bee, each in respect of its nature gives it high. There is a small act of unconditional love that is fulfilled in this encounter naturally.
A gift symbol of perfection and freedom.
A flower and a bee through a simple action you know and communicate and interact touches my heart.

What are they feeling about each other?

To know is to communicate.

I wonder then, how many times I can communicate with the heart.

I feel free to give and receive without preconceptions and fears?

A flower and a bee in his nature each gives himself, in complete freedom, without effort, there is no pretense, just life that manifests itself in a simply sign of love.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2012!!!

23 12 2011

 

Take my hand

We will walk.
We will walk alone.
It will be nice to walk together.
Without thinking to come from somewhere.
Walk in peace. Walk in joy.
Ours is a journey of peace.
then we learn
that there is a path of peace;
walking is peace;
there is a joyful journey;
walking is the joy.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone
always hand in hand.
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step is a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the ground with your feet.
Impress on earth your love and your joy.
The land will be safe
If there is no security in us. (Thich Nhat Hanh)

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas and an exciting 2012!

Morena, Fabio,  Alessia
