"Always remember that when a man goes out of the room, he leaves everything in it behind… When a woman goes out she carries everything that happened in the room along with her".
Because rooms whisper.

"I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet".
Because I believe in this astral dance.

"People’s lives were dull, simple, amazing and unfathomable – deep caves paved with kitchen linoleum."
But in my life I’d rather walk on old cracking wood. Or soft, threadbare carpets.
Alice Munro, 82 years old, new Nobel Prize for Literature. I admire the way she’s been knitting, patiently, short stories, writing in the kitchen, with linoleum on the floor.
Yes, I write. Yes, I believe in the magic of words. That’s why you’ll find me here, every Friday: Lisa “globish”!
I believe in the magic of words, and I believe Piazza Unità in Trieste, where I was born, is the most romantic square in the world. (And yes, it’s in Italy, proudly facing the sea). I love roses in every form. And, of course, I do love my blog, expecially now that I can carry it around on my iPhone.
