"It is not true that what is useful is beautiful. It is what is beautiful that is useful."
The pleasure of everyday objects.

"Il brille, le sauvage Étè,
la poitrine pleine de roses.
Il brûle tout, hommes et choses
Dans sa placide cruauté".
(Theodore de Banville)
Wild, shimmering summer.

"Wisteria woke me this morning
And there was all June in the garden"
(Ann Mc Gough)
Which flower woke you up this morning?
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.
