Don’t “Like” my obituary!

No… I am not dead yet. ☺ But you can do me a favour when I do pop off: don’t give the “Ups” for me by pressing on the “Like” button if and when my obituary appears in social media. Why? It won’t matter to me. I’ll already be dead and won’t be able to […]

The value of the unexpected

Let’s say that you like arias, and watched the performances of five different sopranos over the course of a year. You hadn’t listened to any one of them before.

Eros Ramazzotti & Tina Turner

In the screen in front of me I am watching a video showing Eros Ramazzotti and Tina Turner while they sing Cose Della Vita. They sing in a breath-taking harmony; one voice, but two languages.
