~⚜~ Our Home is our Nest ~⚜~



Our Home is our peaceful refuge, it is where we rest our weary soul;
It is the place where we collect our amulets, where happiness is complete because there it is Love that dictates the law.
It is the place that most gives us security, comfort, makes us feel protected and satisfied.
Our Home is our Nest.








It is during these days of Winter and of celebration, in which we are a little outside because of the cold temperatures and the few hours of light that the sun of this season presents us as a gift, that our Home comes back to life, to make us feel that it too has a soul, the one made of all the years it has lived and that we too have contributed to enriching, a soul that increases every day with everything we live in it.


In our Home, Winter is made up of the scents of the logs burning in the fireplace, of the spices with which we prepare the traditional cakes and biscuits of the holidays and that are hung on the Christmas Tree as decorations, of homemade bread, perfumes that have no time and that indeed, They seem to stop time in a set of rituals, sensations, suggestions that we have always known and that are centuries old.






We need this wonderful season to rediscover the richness of these Home treasures just as we need the holidays to re-appreciate the joy of Love, the greatest Gift we possess!

The poem I transcribed below, which bears the signature of Charles Swain, helps us to understand and remember just this, namely that the true concept of Home is not so much that of the place where you live, circumscribed by four walls: Home is being with the people who are dearest to us, we're at Home when we'retogether with them.



HOME DEFINED
Home’s not merely four square walls,
Though with pictures hung and gilded:
Home is where affection calls,
Filled with shrines the heart hath builded!
Home! go watch the faithful dove,
Sailing ‘neath the heaven above us;
Home is where there’s one to love!
Home is where there’s one to love us!

(Charles Swain, English poet, 1801-1874)


John Ruskin (1819-1900), the far famous British art critic whose conception not only of art, but also of architecture, strongly influenced Victorian and Edwardian aesthetics - let's not forget that he was also a painter, a writer and a poet - argued:


This is the true nature of home -
it is the place of Peace; the shelter, not only from all injury, but from all terror, 
doubt, and division.


And again:


If men lived like men indeed, their houses would be temples 
- temples which we should hardly dare to injure, and in which it would make us holy to be permitted to live.


AND WHILE THE SECRET GARDEN

 
IS SLEEPING UNDER A BLANKET MADE OF SNOWFLAKES, WARMTH AND SILENCE 
AND DREAMING OF THE FIRST SPRING BUDS,
WE ENJOY THE WARMTH OF OUR FAMILY'S LOVE 
WHICH IS CRADLED AND WARDED BY OUR BELOVED HOME


In the Hope that your Holidays are still blessing your heart, 
I'm sending my dearest love to you
See you soon 






 ~⚜~ La nostra Casa è il nostro Nido ~⚜~ 



La nostra Casa è il rifugio dove troviamo pace, 
è dove riposiamo la nostra anima stanca;
È il luogo dove raccogliamo i nostri amuleti, 
dove la felicità è completa perché lì è l'Amore che detta legge.
È il luogo che più ci dà sicurezza, conforto, che ci fa sentire protetti e soddisfatti.
La nostra Casa è il nostro Nido.




IMMAGINI 2 - 3- 4- 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - Interni di Tenuta Geremia


E' durante questi giorni d'inverno e di festa, in cui si sta poco fuori per le temperature rigide e per le poche ore di luce che il sole di questa stagione ci dona, che la nostra Casa torna a rivivere, a farci sentire che anch'essa ha un'anima, quella fatta di tutti gli anni che ha vissuto e che abbiamo contribuito ad arricchire anche noi, un'anima che accresce ogni giorno di ciò che in essa viviamo.


IMMAGINE 9 - Collage natalizio


Nella nostra Casa l'inverno è fatto dei profumi della legna che arde nel camino, delle spezie con cui prepariamo i dolci tradizionali delle feste e che sono appesi all'albero come decorazioni, del pane fatto a mano, profumi che non hanno tempo e che, anzi, il tempo sembrano proprio fermarlo in un'insieme di rituali, di sensazioni, di suggestioni che conosciamo da sempre e che sono vecchie di secoli.


 IMMAGINE 10 - Affetti ed altre immagini interni


Abbiamo bisogno di questa meravigliosa stagione per riscoprire la ricchezza di questi tesori casalinghi così come abbiamo bisogno delle feste per riapprezzare la gioia degli affetti, il Dono più grande che possediamo!


E la poesia che ho trascritto di seguito, che reca la firma di Charles Swain, ci aiuta a comprendere e a ricordare proprio questo, ossia che il vero concetto di Casa non è tanto quello del luogo in cui si vive, circoscritto da quattro pareti: Casa è stare con le persone che più ci sono care, siamo a Casa quando siamo insieme con loro.


DEFINIZIONE DI CASA
Casa non è solo l'insieme di quattro mura squadrate,
Sebbene con quadri appesi ed incorniciati in oro:
Casa è dove l'affetto ci chiama,
E' il luogo colmo di luoghi sacri che il cuore ha edificato!
Casa! Vai a guardare la colomba fedele,
Che sorvola sotto il cielo sopra di noi;
Casa è dove c'è qualcuno da amare!
Casa è dove c'è qualcuno che ci ama!

(Charles Swain, poeta inglese, 1801-1874)


Anche John Ruskin (1819-1900), il celeberrimo critico d'arte britannico la cui concezione non solo sull'arte, ma anche sull'architettura, influenzò fortemente l'estetica vittoriana ed edoardiana - non dimentichiamo che fu anche pittore, scrittore e poeta - sosteneva:


Questa è la vera natura della casa -
è il luogo della Pace; il rifugio, non solo da ogni offesa, ma da ogni terrore, 
dubbio e divisione.


Ed ancora:


Se gli uomini vivessero davvero come uomini, 
le loro case sarebbero templi, templi che difficilmente oseremmo ferire e in cui ci renderebbe santi se ci fosse permesso di viverci.


E MENTRE IL GIARDINO SEGRETO



IMMAGINE 11 - Porta del Giardino Segreto



STA DORMENDO SOTTO UNA COPERTA FATTA DI FIOCCHI DI NEVE, 
TEPORE E SILENZIO
E SOGNA DEI PRIMI GERMOGLI DI PRIMAVERA,
NOI GODIAMO DEL CALORE DELL'AMORE DELLA NOSTRA FAMIGLIA
CHE È CULLATA E PROTETTA DALLA NOSTRA AMATA CASA.


Nella speranza che le vostre feste vi stiano ancora riscaldando il cuore,
Vi invio tutto il mio affetto 
A presto

  1. Ma è una Meraviglia , i profumi e la gioia della vostra festa giungono al mio cuore per magia del Natale! La Tenuta è proprio una favola, un mondo a parte, la Casa che ti abbraccia con dolcezza , ma ti dà forza,la forza dell'amore e della condivisione; l'ambiente ricco di Passato è come se ci prendesse per mano e ci affiancasse,un aiuto nel presente.
    Dany, purtroppo non ho trovato nulla della tua sorpresa nella mia posta elettronica, forse si è persa nel web... comunque grazie del pensiero!

      Sì, devo ammetterlo, io amo la mia casa ed è una gioia per me potermi dedicare a lavori che la rendono sempre più accogliente, cosa che posso fare solamente durante l'inverno. Quando arriva la bella stagione il lavoro mi chiama altrove: i giardini, i prati ed i boschi vanno mantenuti puliti, per noi, ma soprattutto per gli ospiti.
      Un abbraccio di vero cuore ed ancora Felice Anno anche a te,

Indeed, your home is filled with love and the warmth of a beautiful soul. Your lyrical words have painted an exquisite painting for me.

      Dearest One, so here we are after such a long time, I feel so blessed and honored by your presence here!
      After almost three years, last February I came back to Blogland, with my hisdtory essay published! Yes, i worked full time on ancient documents taken hidden for more than one century which both the Habsburgs and the Romanovs didn't want people knew about. After having had the confirmation of a mebership of the House of Habsburg Lorraine that what I discovered corresponded to a true story, I went on with my researches and gave it all to a publisher from Trieste whxch published IL FIGLIO AMERICANO DI RODOLFO D'ASBURGO (Rudolf's of Habsburg American son) between the end of February and the very first days of March.
      At the moment the book is still published in Italian sice I haven't found an American publisher interested in such a topic, yet, even if the story is that of an American boy who grew men in the very early years of the last century, just in the States.
      He became a very good-hearted man and devoted himself to politics... but I don't want to tell you all the story of his life, I hope you'll able and read it in English very soon!
      Wishing you too a most wonderful New Year,
      I'm sending blessings of joy on your evening

Forgive me Darling, I forgot to tell you that this child was born to Crown Prince Rudolf and an illegitimate daughter of Czar Alexander II, friendly called Princess K-the very first difficult I found was, in fact, to give an identity and a face to this young girl-after the Mayerling accident.
