BUCKET LIST > Jim Jarmusch

dialogue

– Does this scare you?
– Yes, of course. Because we don’t know what it is
– What is it?
– If I had a name for it…
– Losing it.
– Losing it? Do you mean mentally? Do you think we can drive ourselves crazy fucking?
– Maybe, but you can also say lose it, like on a hike. You know, lose this or lose that, to travel lighter, to go forward, move towards what you were meant to. Maybe. But the thing is.. you never know if what’ve you lost is better than what you’ve gained. It’s just there’s no likely result.
– But don’t you see? Of course… there can’t be a likely result. There shouldn’t be. You’re saying that it can’t go on like this, right?
– I don’t know. Do you?
– I have no idea.
– Well, I have no idea about any of this.
– Losing it is as good as having it.
– What does that mean?
– It’s something I read in a book sometime ago about the regular kind of loss. I don’t remember who wrote it, but it was saying that everything that is human is lost, but at the same time, some lost things can’t be lost, are never lost.
– Do you think this can’t be lost?
– Yes.

Very intense moment of the film

SXSW > Relationships and Modern Love

Relationships are going through a complex cultural shift. Expectations on intimate partnerships are at an all-time high, yet we lack the tools and resources to reach this new Olympus. Couples therapist Esther Perel, during SXSW, shines a light on the state of modern love, the importance of erotic intelligence, and how listening to the stories of others helps us navigate our own relationships.

About SXSW:
Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.

MUSIKK > La Canzone dell’Amore Perduto

Fabrizio De André, Italian music poet I love

Ricordi sbocciavan le viole
con le nostre parole
“Non ci lasceremo mai, mai e poi mai”,

vorrei dirti ora le stesse cose
ma come fan presto, amore, ad appassire le rose
così per noi

l’amore che strappa i capelli è perduto ormai,
non resta che qualche svogliata carezza
e un po’ di tenerezza.

E quando ti troverai in mano
quei fiori appassiti al sole
di un aprile ormai lontano,
li rimpiangerai

ma sarà la prima che incontri per strada
che tu coprirai d’oro per un bacio mai dato,
per un amore nuovo.

E sarà la prima che incontri per strada
che tu coprirai d’oro per un bacio mai dato,
per un amore nuovo.

I hope he calls you in the morning

I hope he calls you in the morning
after a night of sleeping in a big, empty bed

Just to say good morning
Just to hear your voice
as it is the only wake up call
he needs.

I hope he cooks you breakfast
Knowing how you like your eggs
how you take your coffee
how little or how much you wish to speak.
I hope he cooks you dinner, too
For no reason at all.

I hope he holds your hand proudly
as you walk through a room
of people you don’t know.

I hope he builds you up
until you are standing on a pedestal
of your own creation.

I hope he encourages you to make art
take risks
travel the world
be alone—
always knowing that you’ll be back
home in his warm embrace
as long as his heart is open.

I hope he wears his heart on his sleeve
and is not shy
to adorn yours
as well.

I hope he is the kind of person
who, when presented with the ocean,
will not shy away
from diving in
to ride the waves.

I hope he is all of himself
unafraid to own
his stories
no matter how dark they may seem.

I hope he can see that all of you
is in the stars
poking through
the dark sky
of your past.

I hope he is not scared
by your ability to choose growth
your ability to not be held hostage
by the person you were yesterday
last week
last year.

I hope his attention span
is as long as every word
that exits your mouth
your heart.
I hope that he hears your truth
and meets it with gratitude
for your vulnerability.

I hope he loves you
in a way you didn’t know love existed.
For you have only seen love
in other places
with shaky ground that fell
beneath your hopeful feet.

This is who I hope
for you—
Because you are worthy
of being loved
by a heart so bright
the sun blushes
in admiration.

What a request means to me

request-rosenberg

I like the concept of community. It is my need being part of communities and creating new ones, respecting myself and the others 😀 Polar bears communities, seals communities, human communities, … 😛  “Diversity makes us brighter”!

The most common dialogues living in communities concern with requests. Every kind of requests. Found this text, I enjoyed creating this card! I like it because it is perfect to explain my intentions when I request for something looking for help or time. Living in community, sharing and keeping this idea in mind helps expressing the beauty we all have inside. Understanding ours and the others needs and getting familiar in expressing them brings good vibes and keeps empowering the whole community itself! 🙂

Growl! 😀
