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.

GROUP

Posted by David Brazier on January 11, 2019 at 9:43 3 Comments

I’ve always been interested in groupwork. Recently I’ve been facilitating a rather challenging group. It includes an older man who is enjoying his retirement, an outdoor type who does not say so much but clearly regards the other members as wimps, a writer who has an irritating obsession with etymology, one I think of as the wanderer whose life problem seems to be that of never having learnt to settle down, who tells endless entertaining stories of travels, love affairs and so on, and I was…

I found this piece tremendously sensible, well-reasoned, and above all, realistic.

LONG JOURNEY

Carol drove me into Ottawa at midday on Wednesday 12th. I had spent the morning being interviewed and making a short film. In Ottawa we had lunch at the vegetarian restaurant and then went on to the airport where she dropped me off. I was to take a local plane to Montreal then fly to Paris and on to Bilbao in Spain with Air France, due to arrive at nine in the morning local time the following day. F would meet me in Spain and take me back to stay with him in a village near Vittoria.…

MY REAL LIFE

Posted by David Brazier on December 8, 2018 at 15:00 4 Comments

I'd like to try to say something about real life, which is the only thing that is really interesting.

I have been a bookworm ever since I learnt to read, which was not until I was seven years old. By that time I had already had important spiritual experiences. I was a rather odd child. Many ideas went through my head that tended to set me apart from other children.

Now,…
