Negli ultimi mesi della mia vita, [...]. Mi sembrava di buttare via il tempo. Come quando sei in coda per pagare una multa. Hai proprio la sensazione di buttarlo via. Capisco quando ho la sensazione di non aver vissuto bene una giornata, e di aver buttato via il tempo, perché la notte poi non vorrei mai andare a dormire. Sono quelle notti che ho una voglia incredibile di vivere. Vorrei vedere due o tre film, scrivere, leggere, disegniare, o anche semplicente guardare fuori dalla finestra. Dormire mi sembra una perdita di tempo. Mi viene voglia di imparare. Qualsiasi cosa, ma imparare. Anche se poi il mattino dopo vorrei dormire tutto il giorno. Alzarmi mi sembra un'ingiustizia. Mi fa male la pancia. Ecco, dovrei invertire i due me: meter la sera quello della mattinae quello della mattina la sera. A volte invece vorrei addormentarmi subito, appena entro a letto. Allora penso di farmi una tisane per dormire meglio e farmi una bella tirata fino al mattino, ma poi se bevo la tisane mi sveglio di note per fare la pipi e non so cosa mi conviene fare. A volte è un casino anche andare a letto.

Those who is heading to Moscow and planning to attend some nice places or those who is actually living in Moscow and doesn't know the place where you can eat tasty food for relatively low price - this post is for you!
I adore Moscow with its snow and proud to say that this is my home town.
So would like to share with you one of mine top secret place.
Restaurant Turandot. Truly beautiful with a very tasty food. The biggest treasure is decore. To create such a castle needed 6 years, so you can imagine how much work was inputed to make as impressed. Waiters are very polite and even ready to give you a lecture on any question you ask concerning their field. For instance explain the production of champaign or the story of the restaurant where they work. Cousin is different depending on the theme. So it's logical that this place is better to reserve before coming.
A little tip - if you don't want to spent too much money you can check online a time and date of set menus where you pay about 50 euros per person for an unlimited food menu + drinks as extra payment. For now as far as I am concerned it's available each weekday from 12.00 till 24.00. Otherwise I would go for a weekend brunch with a life music and unlimited food, drinks and unbelievable table of deserts. The total for a brunch is around 100 euros per person - a bit price, but not too expansive for such a place, food and atmosphere. For brunch, the table is better reserve on the second floor, because tables with food are upstairs where you will go to chose the food you wish.
If you already have been there, or going to go - share with us your experience!
Mine is great!
What does mean love? Philosophical question which isn't easy to define. Let's say "love is something what everyone decides and chose for himself". But what about communication.
How do we show our feelings and how it sounds. Each nationality and their language express it differently. The question I asked myself recently was easy:
What does mean love and what do we mean when we say I love you... Ironically simplest thing explained me all I needed.
For instance Garance Doré wrote a great article about love communication in States. So New Yorkers would say "I love you" - very straight forward and clear. In Russia most probably "люблю тебя" (love you) or maybe would avoid such a responsibility, expressing their love with a calling name such as "любимая", "дорогая" (literally translated as beloved one or darling). Thats all quite classical, but Italians with all their passion and uncertainness have chosen the most precise expression of love. Phrase which gave me the clue of love. "Ti voglio bene" which literally translates as "I want you good". They almost never say "I love you" - "Ti amo" - they will simplify it taking away most uncertain word "love" and will nicely say "ti voglio bene" - the most genius phrase of love I ever heart! Very simple but precise and deep. For me this is actually love. Wanting all good to someone is the first step of pure and innocent feeling, no matter what - wish all good of the earth is already strong positive feeling! So simple...
Love Italian language... So special and emotional...
What about other languages? Would be nice to know how you express love in your language, French in particular, as the most romantic language of all...
