Sette.

Tornando a parlare di FORTUNA,   anche il numero 7 ha fama di buon auspicio.  In molte culture questo numero rappresenta la perfezione,  tanto da aver dato origine ad una serie di proverbi,  modi di dire,  oggetti,  superstizioni,  tradizioni:  il menorah (candelabro ebraico a sette braccia);  la settimana;  essere al settimo cielo;   i sette mari

Forse l’origine del mito trae spunto da osservazioni astronomiche:  le Pleiadi sono 7 stelle o il ciclo delle lunazioni:  28 giorni.

Come sapete,  io sono una fotografa,  certo non mi interesso di numerologia o scienze occulte,  percio’ lascio a voi ricercare i significati del numero sette e vi propongo una foto secondo me magnifica,  un vero scherzo della natura:  una simpatica vitellina con impresso sulla fronte proprio il numero sette.  Chissa’ se le ha portato fortuna…

Il brano musicale che ho scelto per questa domenica,  e’ di Sting e si intitola nientemeno che:  Seven Days.  Narra la vicenda di un fidanzato indeciso cui la fidanzata da dato un ultimatum:  deciditi!  Ma chissa’ come va a finire… 😉  (Il testo e’ in calce)

Buon ascolto e buona domenica!   www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG7_gceIFL4

Seven.

Going back to our theme:  GOOD FORTUNE,   the number 7 also has a reputation for good luck.  In many cultures this number represents perfection,  so much so that it has given rise to a series of proverbs,  idioms,  objects,  superstitions,  traditions:  the menorah (Hebrew seven-branched candelabrum);  the seven days of the week;  to be in seventh heaven;   the seven seas …

Perhaps the myth started inspired by astronomical observations:  the Pleiades are 7 stars or the moon phases:  28 days. 

As you know,  I am a photographer and I am not interested in numerology or occult sciences,  so I leave it to you to research the meanings of the number seven.  Instead,  I propose you a magnificent photo,  a real freak of nature:  a nice little calf with the number seven right on her forehead.  I wonder if it brought her luck …

The musical interval I have chosen for today is a lovely and ironical son by Sting,  the title is:  Seven Days.  The story tells about a lover who has to deal with the ultimatum given by his lover.  Who knows how it may end??  😉

Enjoy the music and your Sunday!   www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG7_gceIFL4

“Seven days” was all she wrote
A kind of ultimatum note
She gave to me she gave to me
When I thought the field had cleared
It seems another suit appeared
To challenge me woe is me
Though I hate to make a choice
My options are decreasing mostly rapidly
Well we’ll see
I don’t think she’d bluff this time
I really have to make her mine
It’s plain to see
It’s him or me
Monday I could wait till Tuesday
If I make up my mind
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday’s on my mind
Friday’d give me time, Saturday could wait
But Sunday’d be too late
The fact he’s over six feet ten
Might instill fear in other men
But not in me, the mighty flea
Ask if I am mouse or man
The mirror squeaked, away I ran
Does it bother me at all
My rival is Neanderthal it makes me think
Perhaps I need a drink
IQ is no problem here
We won’t be playing Scrabble for her hand I fear
I need that beer
Monday I could wait till Tuesday
If I make up my mind
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday’s on my mind
Friday’d give me time, Saturday could wait
But Sunday’d be too late
Seven days will quickly go
The fact remains, I love her so
Seven days, so many ways
But I can’t run away
I can’t run away
Monday I could wait till Tuesday
If I make up my mind
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday’s on my mind
Friday’d give me time, Saturday could wait
But Sunday’d be too late
Do I have to tell a story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It’s a big enough umbrella
But it’s always me that ends up getting wet

  1. Adoro i numeri, ma reputo la numerologia alla stregua della astrologia.
    Certamente certi numeri si ripetono in natura con cicli non casuali, e molti numeri hanno assunto nella varie epoche/culture/filosofie/religioni significati del tutto particolari.

    Bella la vitellina.
