Crystals grow like plants
I’m blinded by the lights
In the core of the earth

Crystalline internal nebula
Rocks growing slow mo
I conquer claustrophobia
And demand the lights

 Björk , Crystalline

 

It’s like a magic when I saw the northern light first time in the middle of the night.
Like a dragon dancing in the sky with that unforgettable green light. that was the most beautiful view I have ever seen and the most purest place that I have ever been.

Friendly people, beautiful nature views and amazing northern light, you will find thousands of reasons to fall in love with Iceland.

There is a small town in Hokoriku area Japan, the name is Namerikawa .
People usually thinks that the town has nothing but Watasenia scintillans and mirage.
However it has more great things.
Before I started photography I felt everything ordinary there and
I missed some wonderful things.
Observe your life carefully and to try to see it from the different perspective.
The beauty of life is hidden and you might be able to find it.

CocoRosie – HEARTACHE CITY (2015) , text by Thomas Costantin

The new album of Bianca and Sierra Casady, better known as CocoRosie, smells as a playful back to the roots , leaving  or better  suspending for a moment the electronic ,and the 360 degrees research and experimentation that had characterized the previous two albums, Grey Oceans (2010 ) and Tales of a Grass Window (2013). And so that , the two American sisters, by now active in the alternative music scene for over a decade, instead resume the poetry  of their early work. Heartache City, the new album released on September 18 brings out  from the dusty drawers their toy instruments, ranging to merge with less hysterical vocals , more mild and calm, that sometimes almost give birth to a kind of “alternative blues”. The album registered in their study in France, but completed  in Buenos Aires, reveals their research on the minimal sound , experiment that seems to be   achieved , the piano is  back  acting  as  ruler  in the songs, in which chimes and voices blend, now with a guitar, now  with a trumpet. Undoubtedly Buenos Aires has influenced the arrangements, if we think for instance to  “Un Beso”, but the biggest influence on the album is certainly  the desire to investigate on the  most essential and pure rock, as we can strongly perceive  by listening  to “Big and Black.” The impression is that this latest experiment of the duo, although lighter, sometimes romantic, is undoubtedly successful,  recommended as morning listening ,  or even as a lullaby. From the sweet “Forget Me Not” that opens the album, to the last and most dramatic “No One Knows”, which closes it, just under 45 minutes of an  interior and exterior trip, referred to it is certainly a pity  to deprive yourself.

I believe, and so do you, that things could have been different in countless ways. But what does this mean? Ordinary language permits the paraphrase: there are many ways things could have been besides the way they actually are. I believe that things could have been different in countless ways; I believe permissible paraphrases of what I believe; taking the paraphrase at its face value, I therefore believe in the existence of entities that might be called ‘ways things could have been.’ I prefer to call them ‘possible worlds.’ I believe, and so do you, that things could have been different in countless ways.

PLANETARIO ULRICO HOEPLI

The  building of the Planetarium was designed in the neoclassical style from  the architect Piero Portaluppi (1888-1967), author of several important projects in Lombardy at  that period , and was built in the  area of the public gardens of Porta Venezia offered by the City of Milan. He motivated so the choice of the place (by the planetarium in Milan, May 15, 1930):

It was not too easy thing to find in Milan the location suitable to build a planetarium, a place that was included in the body of the metropolis and at the same time  is detached; discover  an area of concentration at the edge of the same city life that can enable  anyone, no matter what social class, to forget for a little the  fever that drives all of us crazy to run  for a

a particular torment,  and to launch  free their thoughts  , without excessive  effort of  imagination and the most restful tranquility, in  immeasurable  raids behind following  wanderings of the stars.

And the problem seems solved with the choice of that area  of the public garden of grove of trees in  Corso Venezia place between father Stoppani [the founder of the nearby Natural History Museum] and the herm of Moses Bianchi; in the very center of Milan, very close to an artery large and noisy in the crowd, and even lonely under the green ancient vault  of  the chestnut trees, it rises the reduced celestial vault.

Panizza

Panizza has been making the best hats in the world since 1879, the year of its foundation, and quickly reached unquestioned prestige. His name was linked to both sports hats and elegant ones. They were made with very light felt called Bon Voyage and felts of mixed colours thanks to the use of a dozen grams of raw material, and the enterely  handmade  production.
