Sunday Music

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.

  1. It might be cooling down here, but who knows? California is prime for earthquakes, and now, somehow, we are in danger of mega-floods! Good Grief! xoxo Take care, dear friend!

  2. Four months and a few days – you already have plans for presents MsScarlet ?

    Come on Dinahmow, foxtrot alway !

    Will the mega-flood be before or after the mega storm ? And for when is that earthquake scheduled ? Questions abound, dear Savannah !

  3. You had mentioned in a previous post about how low the Rhine river was. Today I read this story about the “hunger stones” and the one in the Elbe river. It is surprising to me that it has gotten that low before and what does that mean to modern people now? We can transport food from far away places, but there are also more people on the planet and living in these areas then there were in 1616.

  4. I have to go and look for the one from 1616 – because the inscription in this picture is upside down. There are two dates, 1911 and 1930. The stone seems to be removed from its original position. It may be the one from Tetschen (here).
    It means that water is very damn low, and that this occures not for the first time – one would need to look at a statistic to see whether this happens in a certain rhythm, like f.e. all forty years or so. In the English wiki article is a list “common years”, and you see that most of them are marked after 1800. Also the bulk of these markers seems to be found in the Elbe river, only a few in Rhein, Moselle or Neckar. Reeks a bit of Folklorismus, but this is just me …
