Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.

The Unfinished Angel scene: The Nature of Signora Divino
Today, one more reading from The Unfinished Angel. Sometimes the Angel throws pine cones at Signora Divino and her grandson Vinny. Sometimes the Angel pinches them a little. In this scene, the Angel explains why.
This is the last scene I'll read from this book. Probably.
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
