You in my nostalgia.

Friday, 1 March 2013 @08:26

"Ich kann nicht mehr zufrieden sein,
ich muß an allen meinen Tagen
Dein Bild in meiner Sehnsucht tragen,
Ich bin ja dein"
(Hermann Hesse)
I love the german word Sehnsucht: the powerful yearning we feel for people and places we miss. And, when we love somebody, isn't the beloved profile engraved in our nostalgia?

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.
