"He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him every pore."

~ Sigmund Freud

My favorite Italian commericals!

Click Click ...

In Unison

Against rough-hewn cobblestone

Designer heels echo on.


Wearing a fitted suit

Display of tapered legs

Traipsing along via Barbieri

With no time to waste.


Passing a bus

Soldati Italiani

I see

With handsome face

and passionate voice

I hear

Raucous applause.


Brava!

Mama Mia!!

Bellisima!

Siempre Bella!!


I stop and stare

Standing there

Caught unaware

With obvious chagrin

Suddenly the center

Amorous attention.


Without a second thought

Ever so gracious I give curtsy

Take a bow and blow a kiss.


Quickly

I make escape

Without chase

Through an oblivious crowd

I disappear

Without trace.


Memory does recall

Little moments like these

One fine Italian day

Treasured secrets

I tuck away.

    So Glad you enjoyed your stay.

    I know Venice like the back of my hand.

    I miss the square and all it's regal pigeon poop.

    Italian in the morning and at bedtime makes each day so fine. I spent Christmas in Venice in 2008. Loved it.

    Now that's Italian! I love Italy and you've captured the flavor of "La Dolce Vita". Ciao.

    I lived in Italy for four years and I loved every minute of it.

    The Italians are always very happy, passionate people full of life, and the funny thing is that they like to emulate the American culture ... but really what they don't understand is that we could all learn to live more like the them!

    Perfect! Your best yet. I love Italy and Italians. I wish my second language was Italian and not Spanish, a race I find surly and earth-bound in comparison (In Spain, not Mexico).

    An Italian smile can warm your heart for all the day.
