My, my, my Deliah! When tragedy sounds f. good

My, my, my Deliah! When tragedy sounds f. good

Today is the most important date in the History of Humankind: my f. birthday! I’ve stopped to drink for half an hour to dedicate some words to Yareah readers. Isabel (she says she likes Elisabeth of the River, her translated name) has given me a really good Meerschaum pipe with the shape of a claw. We’ve eaten outside a good meal and everything is O.K. (I mean, sun shines, birds sing, bankers steal…). I am so happy to sing and I love this song. Let’s sing it!

I hadn’t taken a look to the lyrics of this song. Oh, my god!

So before they come to break down the door 

Forgive me Delilah I just couldn’t take any more

Well, just another lovesick. No problem, Mr. Jones. Everybody has felt it and we can continue working with it but this girl isn’t so good.

She stooooooooood there laughing 

Oh, oh, oh. This is going to turn into a Shakespeare’s tragedy. There’s nothing equal to laugh and even the bored Aristotle knew it

I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more 

Smoking Pipe

Smoking Pipe

What? What the hell have you done, Mr. Jones? I know, I know, you were just singing as you might know that when I write about a murder I am not a killer and usually people forget with evident matter. Fiction is… fiction! Dostoyevsky used to say that if he weren’t written novels he would have killed ancient woman. We really appreciate it, Fedor, but I would like to stress in this point. The war of Troy, like it’s related in The Odyssey, is fiction. Oh… my… god! Fiction? We all have done it… yes, I read a novel and I usually think that the action, the argument, the facts are truth but, believe me, writers are liars and we are proud when we lie cause this is our job: to construct a clear work, a structure with no fissures to offer to the reader something logical… and life isn’t coherent and life is plenty of fakes and life is full of illogical meaning and life is… just life.

I used to admire books and arts because they are more logical than real life and, when I write a book, I can feel something similar to the breathing of God everywhere. Yes, the Humankind has been able to create something as great as the Beethoven’s 9th Symphony but all of us as so… imperfect? Flawed? Yes, we are but that’s precisely our greatness and maybe the birth of the arts: the paradox between our mediocre lives and our great thinking, our expectations and illusions, our loves and our deceptions. Yes, Mr. Jones maybe killed his beloved Deliah but while the man kills, the artists create a great world with the breathing remains of our brilliant lives. Yes, people died in the war of Troy and Hamlet made carnage in his last day. Horrible facts for terrible greatness.

That’s live.

And that’s fiction.

And I love fiction.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
