"Before a place, there’s a name.
And the travelling there, which is another place,
more discontinuous, impossibile to name".
(Maria do Rosário Pedreira)
Travelling begins at home: the dream of a name.
Today I'm leaving for Lisboa, where I will meet the poet who wrote these verses. And hear their sound:
"Antes de un lugar há o seu nome. E ainda
A viagem até ele, que è um outro lugar
mais discontinuo e inominavél".
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.
