 Qualunque cosa si dica in giro parole e idee possono cambiare il mondo
( Professor Keating  in L'Attimo Fuggente)
Scicli - by Paola

All’improvviso un’idea sfocata come una vecchia foto si insinuò nella sua mente.
Un’idea buia e stropicciata, un’idea che poteva essere un ricordo o forse un sogno.
Un’idea che si stiracchiava alla luce del sole e allo stesso tempo bramava di nascondersi.
Un’idea che era appena nata e allo stesso tempo già rugosa.
Un’idea che era sua, un’idea colorata, un’idea in bianco e nero.
Un’idea, una nuova idea, un inizio, una fine, un attimo, una vita.

Empathy....To Kurt

Luci - Tokyo - by paola

A volte  osserviamo sguardi che vanno al di là del semplice vedere, sentiamo suoni che percepiamo al di là delle singole note e parliamo una lingua che va al di là delle singole parole.

To Boddah pronounced

Speaking from the tongue of an experienced simpleton who obviously would rather be an emasculated, infantile camplainee. This note should be pretty easy to understand. All the warnings from the punk rock 101 courses over the years. Since my first introduction to the, shall we say, ethics involved with independence and the embracement of your community has proven to be very true. I haven't felt the exitement of listening to as well as creating music along with reading and writing for too many years now. I feel guilty beyond words about these things. For example when we're backstage and the lights go out and the manic roar of the crowd begins it doesn't affect the way in which it did for Freddy Mercury who seemed to love and relish in the love and adoration from the crowd. Which is something I totally admire and envy. The fact is I can't fool you. Any one of you. It simply isn't fair to you or me. The worst crime I can think of would be to rip people off by faking it and pretending as if I'm having 100 % fun. Sometimes I feel as if I should have a punch in time clock before I walk out on stage. I've tried everything within my power to appreciate it, and I do. God, believe me I do but it's not enough. I appreciate the fact that I and we have affected and entertained a lot of people. I must be one of one of those narcissists who only appreciate things when they're gone. I'm too sensitive. I need to be slightly numb in order to regain the enthusiasm I once had as a child. On our last three tours I've had a much better appreciation for all the people I've known personally and as fans of our music, but I still can't get over the frustration, the guilt and empathy I have for everyone. There's good in all of us and I think I simply love people too much. So much that it makes me feel too fucking sad. The sad little, sensitive, unappreciative, pisces Jesus man! Why don't you just enjoy it? I don't know. I have a goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy and a daughter who reminds me too much of what I used to be. Full of love and joy kissing every person she meets because everyone is good and will do her no harm. And that terrifies me to the point to where I can barely function. I can't stand the thought of Frances becoming the miserable self-destructive, death rocker that I've become. I have it good, very good, and I'm grateful, but since the age of seven I've become hateful towards all humans in general. Only because it seems so easy for people to get along, and have empathy. Empathy! Only because I love and feel for people too much I guess. Thank you all from the pit of my burning nauseous stomach for your letters and concern during the past years. I'm too much of an erratic, moody baby! I don't have the passion anymore and so remember, its better to burn out than to fade away. peace, love, empathy. Kurt Cobain

Frances and Courtney, I'll be at your alter.
please keep going Courtney
for Frances
for her life which will be so much happier without me. I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU!
( ultima lettera di Kurt Cobain)
