Fluffy clouds on brilliant blue, clear light – one sees any single leaf ; wind makes them rustle, crinkle, much too dry, a hint of autumn ; empty fields, remaining sunflowers hang their seedless heads, maize is small & brittle.
At least it is a dry heat – 29°C in my appartement – and it is windy. Menaced rain tomorrow will not come with lower temperatures, so it will be more like a sauna infusion than a relieving shower.
But that’s tomorrow. Today I cooked some rice in the microwave, now it’s time to prepare a very simple sauce (just Tomatenpamps with spices).
The heat, the sun, the tomatoes : Italy, Italian song, preferably fifties or so. And the wonder of yuhtube leads us to Voglio vivere cosi (So will ich leben, I live the way I please), here in the 1958 version of Claudio VILLA (1926-1987) (Ger., Eng., It.). (Originally from a 1942 film with the same title (Eng.), performed by actor/singer Ferruccio TAGLIAVINI (1913-1995) (Ger., Eng., It., here.))
I hope you enjoy the music. Let’s stay cool through the coming week.
