The magical fly-whisk

I own a magical fly-whisk, which I acquired long long ago in central Africa.

I knew it was mine from the very first moment I saw it.

I felt its power, when I handled it.

She said to me: -take me home with you-.

And so I did.

Three Roses

A man must have a blazon. His blazon. I found mine:

Three Roses
on a single Stem
in a field of gold

Three Roses
not One

The First:
Jet Black
like the Night
and Sin

The Second:
like Milk,
and the Bright Day

The Third:
like Blood,
and Searing Fire

Three Roses
on a single Stem
in a field of gold

Three Roses
in One.

The Sign of Command

There is a source for everything, under the sun and the moon. My fascination for the night and the occult (i.e. what is hidden) can be traced back to this serial of so long ago.

Il Segno del Comando, The Sign of Command, with its marvellous dark Rome, and Carla Gravina as the beautiful Lucia, long dead, yet roaming about in the alleys of the Eternal City, like an unfathomable and everlasting ghost.

And the exquisite song, Cento Campane, with its enchanting twists....

But, chief and most important of all, was the title itself:

The Sign of Command

The Queen of Diamonds

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able.
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet.
Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table.
But you only want the ones
That you can't get.

Eagles, Desperado, 1973.

Quite prophetic and true.
I always knew the Queen of Heart would be my best bet.
But, how can one forget the challenge of the previous line?

She'll beat you if she's able.

Indeed she will.
But, I am not here to have a easy life.
What I want is strife, to grow.

I''ll always welcome my Queen of Diamonds.

One Year After

One more year of silence.
I have hesitated for too long.
Now, it is my time.
