Rome and feathers ....







Well, in ancient Rome, Carnival, lasted for 7 days; between 17th and 23th December.
December?.... 
Yes, cause it was warmer, I guess ...  
How can you get wild, with a -10º?...
And I think, there's a strange connection, between getting lost, and undress.


Pagan Party.... and the traveling machine, that I catch, once in a while ... 
(a friend from NASA, gives me a ride).


...a wild Roman party, as some of us, can imagine ... others not.
...all moral restrictions were relaxed ...
...alienation .. 


Humans, need alienation, since the beginning of times; it's important, as the soul stuff.
...set free the devils in you, get them out; they're not supposed to stay there, inside ... 
or maybe ... 
"...if I let my demons out, well, my angels may leave too...and when they leave, they're so hard to find."
Tom Waits 


In Rome, people changed Carnival gifts; perhaps rare fruits, silk tissues ... maybe scarlet was fashionable, those days...
And then, they'll just cover, with a smooth and lascivious silk, a small part of their body's ...  
Beauty ...
...also jewls and perfums ... vanilla, spicy stuff, and more ...
drinking deep red wine, from big golden cups ... loud laughing
...and beautiful, tall, black waiters, offering the guests, little sliver plates, with some drugs, home made ...alienation ... 
...they all danced and laughed, even more, making their long wigs, made of silver string, fly ....


Yes, they had all that, and even more ... they had SPA's, philosophers, saunas,  Gods, and they were vicious.


And all slaves were free, during those 7 days; all kinds of business were suspended, cause nobody was in the mood, anyway.
They were busy, choosing a new King, that would rule, only for 7 days mad days; and he'll be, in command of Carnival.
The Saturnalicius Princeps.


Romans remove the wool yarn, from the Saturno's statue, like a invitation from the city of Rome, for him to  participate in their madness .... The Roman God Saturn.






Much latter, at the Renascence ...  the luxury.
Rich Ball's, where Lady's used feathers and weird hats, and gentleman, with wigs and powdered faces.
... and the masks ... mystery and madness ... behind Carnival, itself.


With the "evolution", the Carnival, became less interesting and poor, or either,  pathetic.
Rio de Janeiro, is the City, and Brazil, is the place. 
Some Roman souls, always make reservations, at the Copacabana Palace, I've heard 
...


Hot, wild, lost of track, lost in space, complete freedom of ... whatever ...


So, let us be Romans, once in a while, but don't take it too serious, or you may get lost, forever, and the fun will be over.






And why the music should fit with the text?
It doesn't.


So, I breathe with Jamie Cullum; you know him, the wise old man ...




... can you hear him breathe?

Moon_T said...

fiquei curioso
fui, procurei
mas nao vi comentario teu no alentejo... devia sincero demais que teve vergonha em publicar.
ou então desisti antes de o encontrar.

Moon_T said...

:p

Laura said...

eu chamei-lhe machista, apenas isso, o que poderia até ter dado uma conversa interessante, se ele n fosse o que se vê.
o blog dele é grotesco; mas há gostos para tudo.
sinceramente esses bloggers da punh* ,não os quero aqui.
é um lodo.

bjs

Moon_T said...

é. há pessoas que não gostam de desafios nem sinceridade... enfim preferem as coisas de "mão beijada".
há sempre a vertente de "talho" por estes lados, é uma questão de filtragem. ;)

PS.
Jamie no seu melhor
fica sempre bem
