Jack the Labrador asking for a drink

Dreaming snow with Jack the Labrador. Good dog!

Every city has its own soul, every city has its little great secrets. Now I am here, in front of this computer, trying to imagine a better landscape of snow and a man who is saying me hello. Where are you Jack? He is here, like always. He would like to be playing in the mountains. I still remember Leo and Joyce and the great Robin, other dogs in my life. When they saw snow for the first time, they opened their eyes and we knew they were happy. Sometimes, I remember the last two pages of Dubliners by James Joyce, one of the most beautiful examples of beauty and rhythm in the History of Literature. Where are you now, Michael Furey? Where are the roots of your eternal love for her? Where are those words to become immortal? Jack has watched the snow a few times, but I think this year it will be different. Now, he has two friends in the mountains and we go there weekly. He will enjoy the snow this year for the first time. Would you like to play with the snow, dear Jack? Would you like to meet your friends again? It’s time to remember those lives living without words, those lives that escaped from time and suddenly fell into a grave of silence and fire. Jack is watching me now, preparing to go out. He watches at me and he waits for his walk, every evening at 7.30. Good dog. What is your favorite landscape, dear Jack? Sometimes, this city is cruel and sometimes is kind and sometimes is nothing more than a city of shadows and anonymous faces. Where are the friends I left? Where are my patterns and the girl I pretended to love? Time again, dear Jack, time again. The snow is falling down slowly, very slowly, watching us writing, crying and falling. Last year, I was still a young man and I was sick. Christmas is coming and I don’t know still where those friends are now. Have you lost? Have you won? 0 -1 or 1-0. What’s the matter with binary code? I feel the world has lost the sense of the decimals and you can summarize everything to win or to lose. Is that the only explanation for craziness? Is that the only sense of our lives? Where is the snow, dear Jack? I would like to be there, watching again the snow falling down. Sometimes, dear jack, I feel strange inside my body. I can look at my face beyond the window and I cannot feel I’m here. Where were my dreams? I would like to escape from this jail of words, from the Eternal Return to the nonsense. It is cold here and it is cold in Ireland. We lost something, dear Jack, we lost something important.

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
