(Prototipo come tradizione)
Ancor non lo sappiamo,
nel frattempo: lasciateci perdere.
Affronta i tuoi errori faccia a faccia –
i sacri muri preserveranno la nostra onestà.
Il nostro duro lavoro sará tanto leggendario
quanto i nostri baccanali.
Ci domandiamo di cosa i giusti godranno a cena…
As yet we cannot know, until that time, let us ‘Get Lost’.
– the sacrèd walls will preserve our sincerity:
Our hard work shall be as legendary as our parties.
It is best we go gently. Fortunately the scenery is evocative…
Every morning at the stroke of 0745 on the magnificent terrace overlooking the magnificent sunrise overlooking the magnificent stone formations of the Murgia just across the ravine valley from our perch, we go at it. The elements are carefully selected from among the following list…
- the west African forearm massage greeting with small talk
- rudimentary qi gong moves from the bear cycle which emphasise the very rocks on which we cling
- instant chi chuan with the seven constituent elements
- isolated Greatest Hits culled from my years of actors training
- a gradually expanding repertoire of all-purpose Italian phrases designed both to align us ideologically within the task we have taken upon ourselves, and to demonstrate this ideology to anyone whom we can cajole into listening to it
- for dessert we round off the day by selecting a random card from Martin Slaatto’s collection of the twenty movements of transport dance which are used to propel us back up the ramparts and in to breakfast.
