Secondo l’antica leggenda, la parola “grappa” deriva dalla parola “graspo” che significa “grappolo d’uva”
in dialetto veneto.
L’Italia è stata incantata della grappa sin dal medioevo, ma solo all’inizio del XVII secolo il Senato veneziano ha istituito la cosiddetta “Corporazione degli Aquaviteri” e ha scritto le leggi e gli standard per Distillazione nella Repubblica di Venezia.
Per generazioni, gli italiani hanno assaporato la grappa alla fine di un pasto come digestivo,
servito con il caffè o, più di recente, usato come base per i cocktail e gli aperitivi. #graitgrappa#graitour
(Part 2/3) #INKTOBER2017 - "And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence."
The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel
Made a lil comic of the lyrics of The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel, been wanting to draw it since I heard the song because I think the lyrics are really poignant and it's quite relevant now even though it was written in 1964. (Not that it's a good thing I guess cause the lyrics are quite dystopian 😢) #INKTOBER2017 (Part 1/3)
"Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence."
Mandela’s 27 Hard Ones ...,,,,,
Nelson Mandela did 27 years in prison because he refused to renounce his beliefs. The struggle is real and facing criticism isn’t anything new, we just have to stay strong and endure because this to will past.
