Chocolate Muffins

C

Muffin al CioccolatoChe dire, mi era venuta voglia di muffins al cioccolato, così di buona lena mi sono ingegnato per capire come si dovesse procedere. Il risultato? L’aspetto è ottimo, il gusto pure. Da perfezionare i pezzetti di cioccolata che rimangono sospesi nell’impasto, oltre alla lievitazione. Io credo che sbattere il burro con lo zucchero e poi con le uova potrebbe aiutare. Vedremo la prossima volta.

Death is nothing at all

D

Giovanni Morelli - 7 Aprile 1948 - 12 Giugno 2008

Death is nothing at all. It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you, and the old life
that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes
that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort,
without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.
All is well.
– Henry Scott Holland –
