Today, 6.50 AM

 
File_004 (1).jpeg

A multitude of thoughts are spinning in my mind;
things I should have done
things I shouldn’t have done
things people did
things they didn’t do.
And while I’m focused on all of these thoughts I forget the most important one: 
this. very. moment.

The sun is rising and I’m alive.
And as long as I’m alive I have the power to change
the things I don’t like
those I don’t want
the things that hurt me and
those that drain the life out of me.
I have the power, it’s in my hands.
Fire On My Fingertips.

Sampietrini

Ho il cuore tappezzato di sampietrini
e la vita ci cammina sopra coi tacchi a spillo
ad andamento sostenuto
passo dopo passo
s'incastra fra i ricordi di quella che sembra una vita passata

- all'improvviso apro gli occhi e sono passati 9 anni -

Pezzettini di me sono rimasti attaccati sotto ai tacchi della vita,
un po' a destra, un po' a sinistra
un po' a Roma, un po' a Pistoia, un po' a Boston, un po' a New York.

Seguo le orme e provo a ripercorrere gli stessi passi ma non mi ritrovo, non ci sono piú. 
Ripenso a quando, con i tacchi a spillo, sentivo il mondo sotto ad ogni passo.
Grazie a 'problemi di praticitá',  adesso il mondo lo sento sotto ai piedi quando invece di mettermi i tacchi a spillo, decido di camminare scalza.

from my living room

Here's a live performance of 'Another Sky' that was shoot by Nicolas Santa in my living room at the end of 2016. We released the video last week and it also features some cool animation done by the amazing Courtney Dubois.
I'm truly excited to share it with you today - especially since the weather in NYC has been brutal lately and I really feel like flying to another sky ~ ~  ✨🌙

BROKEN

I understand now

what my

Broken English / Broken Spanish / Broken Italian

really is

 
Brokenis a piece of  E V E R Y T H I N G / of

E V E R Y O N E / of

E V E R Y W H E R E

 

Broken is a multitude of shiny little pieces that

burn together and

light up

this little planet of mine

where there’s only one god

that  goes by  a three-letter name

ORDINE

Io ci provo a dare un ordine alla mia vita, ma finisco

sempre per lasciare le zip aperte, i bottoni sbottonati e 

le note non sostenute. 

Che fatica.

Però mi piace.

Me l'ha Detto il Dottore

Mi sono svegliata in buona compagnia, 
ho fatto il caffé pensando a Pino Daniele
ed ho aperto le finestre per controllare se fossi davvero a New York

Me l'ha detto, me l'ha detto il dottore
che fa male fare l'amore
senza te, senza te, senza te


Me l'ha detto, me l'ha detto il dottore
che non posso, che non posso camminare
senza te, senza te, senza te

Ma dove vuoi che vada questo cuore solitario
ha trovato casa dentro una valigia blu
senza più fermarsi, senza mettere radici
siamo fiori sul cestino di una bici
 

Me l'ha detto, me l'ha detto il dottore
che non posso, che non posso respirare
senza te, senza te, senza te


Me l'ha detto, me l'ha detto il dottore
che fa male fare l'amore
senza te, senza te, senza te

COMBAT BOOTS

The dark is so RICH

So RICH, SO RICH

There’s EVERYTHING in there

And if you could feel what I feel you’d want to go with me

                                                            I swear

 

There’s room for EVERYTHING in there

love                        art                        prayer

chandeliers  golden caskets  fine-wares

now polish your dancing shoes and come stomp on my grave

 

Excess is my balance when I see the universe in my hands

I got fire on my fingertips and sparkles IN MY HEAD

EVERYTHING is the universe and the universe is in my hands

in my hands   in my hands   in my hands

 

EVERYTHING

the moon     the smoke      the star

the sky with no limit

I

AM

THE

HOLY

SPIRIT

 

When is this life going to end? When am I going to live the life I deserve?
I’m ready to fight. I got  my  COMBAT BOOTS    damn right.

I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to fight. I’m ready to fight

Moving Pens with my Mind

Blú Blah Blah

Constellations in my eyes

Fermare la penna é impossibile

La penna si muove e io mi sento bene. Mi sento completa, mi sento io, mi sento vera. Viva.

Once, as a kid, I thought I could move things with my mind. And I tried. I tried to move a pen.
I placed it carefully on the floor and I stared at it for a good 5 minutes. But nothing, the pen didn't move.

I never tried it again. 


How could I believe it would work right away?  

La vita va veloce

Veloce va la vita.

E io metto a posto

E il giorno dopo c'é giá casino

E il giorno dopo ancora c'é ancora piú casino

E dopo qualche giorno trovo la forza di mettere apposto di nuovo

Ma l'ordine non dura molto. 

-on repeat-
