A Day at the Seaside ~ Una giornata al Mare (in Italiano & English)

Ho alzato alle sette e ho preso colazione alle otto. Era un colazione grande e bellissimo con una diverse seleccione di succi, cereale, panne, briochi, frutta, yoghurt, marmellate, miele, uova, e cose cosi, con caffè buono e molto latte caldo.

Questa mattina, dopo di aver fatto un lezione di ilaliano, sono andato a piedi in città ancora una volta. Questa volta ho caminato più lontano. Scoperto altre librerie. Quando ero a Milano ho desiderato un dizionario etimologico - mi piace sapere l’origine delle parole - ma era molto costoso. Tuttavia, in una piccola libreria, a questa città di mare, n’ho trovato uno per meno di sei euro. Un meraviglia! Tornando guardavo le vetrine, ho visitato la chiesa di San Francesco e ho fermato per bere qualcosa in un chiosco nel parco.

Nel pomeriggio lavoravo al montaggio mentre bevando caffè e ascoltando il Mediterraneo, seduto sulla terassa. Anche ho scrito un articolo e lo prendere sul sitio web. La sera ho fatto un ultimo giro in spiaggia, in direzione opposto al mattino. Alla fine della baia c’è un piccolo chiesa o sanctuario dedicato a tutti perduti in mare. Il passeggiata di ritorno era nel buio. Sono molto contento di avere passato questa breve periodo in riva al mare.

I was up at seven and breakfasted at eight. It was a great breakfast with many juices, cereals, breads, croissant, fruit, yoghurt, jams, honey, eggs, and suchlike, plus good coffee and lots of hot milk.

This morning, after doing an Italan language lesson, I walked into town again. This time I went further than yesterday. I discovered some more bookshops. When I was in Milan I covetted an etimological dictionary - I like to know the origins of words - but it was too expensive for me. However, here, in a little shop in this seaside town, I found one for less than six euro - a miracle! I strolled back looking in shop windows, visited the church of St Francis, and stopped in the park for a soft drink.

In the afternoon I worked, editing while drinking coffee and listening to the Mediterranean, sitting on the hotel terrace. I also wrote an article and put it on the site. In the evening, a final stroll along the beach in the opposite direction to the morning. At the end of the bay there is a shrine dedicated to people lost at sea. My walk back was in the dark. I am very contented with my day at the seaside.

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…

My children, Floor and I have been at Eleusis for a week visiting Dharmavidya. He had had another attack of new embolisms in his lungs a few weeks ago, and had gone to see a specialist at the hospital who then kept him in the hospital for just under a week and was back home the day before we arrived.

When we arrived, he told us of another serious blockage problem. He lives in the countryside, quite remote, and is on…
