la dolce vita













* i wanted the music to play while you read but unfortunately playlist does not have it so tap the link in another window!

the other night i watched la dolce vita.(tap for music) and i heard things this time that made me think even more. I love the streets
of italy in the evening and dawn. I remember sleepless nights of dancing, cafes and at times conversation of the oddest kind:)
Montreal where i am from and where i will soon be dancing in the streets once again, staying out all night was easy, from late night dinners to midnight theaters, dancing till five am, yes five and then a morning espresso as the sun came out... gosh i remember some of it so clearly.

Fellini also wrote " never give up your childlike ways.." well something like that. i agree except do not become a marcello either!

while i watched i thought perhaps I could put a question to you? when the journalist/paparazzi our interviewing Sylvia
one of them ask "sylvia what are three things that you can't live without" her reply was " love, love, love" although i agree
and most of us would add our loved ones. I thought maybe you can tell me three things you would not be able to live without that come after your loved ones.

for me.

I can't live without

memories
a hand to hold or to reach out for mine
and books, lots and lots of books/film/music

God

cindy* said...

for me:

irreverent humor
music
encouragement

the last is possibly the most telling...i'm a chronic second-guesser/over-thinker.

Great post Nadia! After my loved ones... I'd find it very difficult to live without - words, images, integrity (in myself and others)

Siobhan said...

Beautiful post! My three things apart from loved ones;
daylight of any kind; through rain, dappled, sunshine, dusks...
laughter
art in all its forms

Three things for me, after love and those whom I love:
my hands (so I can make; so I can hold my loved ones)
a nearby library
the feeling of safety
