GROWTH!!!

Waiting to understand more about the new measures for the  growth announced yesterday by the Italian government and ecstatic for the last SuperMario’s statement (“Italy has moved away from the edge of the precipice, but the crater has widened and now the crisis is back”),  I also have to listen to the new alarm spread around our beautiful Country: Scipione, the heat wave, is coming! I can’t understand if media are involved in a new kind of meteorological terrorism or if they are rebels against the economic and financial system that seem to recommend a shortening of life expectancy. Anyway… Now, I can proudly announce that in fact something is growing round here: flowers on my balcony! Not much, I know, but if you look at them from the right angle the view improves a lot.

A final suggestion for all those that are going to face Scipione: open all doors and windows, get rid of all the unnecessary clothing, lie down on the floor like a cat and, with your eyes closed, listen to Jimi Hendrix singing Bold as Love (just click on title).

Aspettando di capire di più sui provvedimenti per la crescita annunciati ieri dal governo ed in estasi per l’ultima dichiarazione di SuperMario (“L’Italia si è spostata dall’orlo del precipizio, ma il cratere si è allargato e siamo di nuovo in crisi.”), mi tocca ascoltare anche  il nuovo allarme lanciato in tutto il Paese: Scipione, l’ondata di calore, è in arrivo! Non riesco ancora a capire se si tratta di una raffinata forma di terrorismo meteorologico o di un coraggioso atto di ribellione contro il sistema economico e finanziario che pare raccomandare un accorciamento della vita media. Comunque… Ora posso orgogliosamente annunciare che qualcosa cresce davvero qua attorno: i fiori del mio balcone! Non molto, lo so, ma guardandoli dalla giusta angolazione almeno migliorano il panorama.

Un consiglio per superare l’ondata di calore: aprite tutte le porte e le finestre, liberatevi degli indumenti superflui, sdraiatevi sul pavimento come un gatto e, ad occhi chiusi, ascoltate Jimi Hendrix che canta Bold as Love (cliccate sul titolo).

    So, if you’re tired of worrying about the economics you can always worry about the climate… isn’t that handy?
    Although… I wouldn’t mind a little heatwave right now – it’s been far too cold. Maybe I should check the media if we’d better start worrying about a new ice-age coming on…

  2. Splendido consiglio….
