LAPORTA

Put some yellow in your life, it will fill up your days with light!
This was the suggestion of Dobedobedo some days ago, quoting one of my favourite poets, Montale( Italy 1896-1981, Nobel Prize in 1975).

Good advice Faiena, thank you! So, here goes, with these ‘Curves of Light’, by a catalan painter, Jaume Laporta. One feels the sun pouring all over the place!

Another text of Montale:

Quando un giorno da un malchiuso portone
tra gli alberi di una corte
ci si mostrano i gialli dei limoni;
e il gelo del cuore si sfa,
e in petto ci scrosciano
le loro canzoni
le trombe d’ oro della solarità.

(if one day , beyond a badly closed door, and through the trees of the courtyard, you discover the yellow of the lemons; the ice thaws in your frozen heart then, and deep inside explode the songs of the solar gold trumpets ) – approximative translation.

(Eugenio Montale, ‘Ossi di seppia, I Limoni’ Mondadori 1967,p.21)
