Dedicated To Books | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

In the midst of this surreal life we are all living, we must keep doing things for the sake of our sanity and maybe doing things that will reshape our future. I am seeing many people who are creating new things, new life paths, new programs, and even new entrepreneurial careers. I am one of them. Thanks to my strong will, I saw a way to reshape my work. I am devoting all my time to design a study program directed to people who want to learn to be their own interior designer and learn from me every possible strategy to decorate or remodel their home. It will happen next year.
The next project is a new non-fiction book about the relation between nature and the interiors of a home. I am pushing to publish it by November 2020. 

This week, I read some blogs I missed when they were published. Authors never stop thinking, every moment is a good time to put “words on paper” as we used to say, or at least when the inspiration comes.

Author Sally Cronin features a few authors every six weeks and includes reviews they have received from others. She is so precise featuring and including everyone she knows in her Smorgasbord Blog Café. I read a lot of excellent reviews and I am so honored to be enumerated among so many talented, successful Authors.
Here you can read about every author featured.
https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/smorgasbord-cafe-and-bookstore-free-author-promotion/

Last month, I was featured among hundreds of authors in Sally’s circle who received new reviews, mine was on a travel narrative book I wrote a year ago:
The Road To Top Of The World.

Sally Cronin featured my books for the first time, in August 2019, with an article she selected from my blog archive: Is There A Trick in Fennel And Wine? (2011) -Valentina Cirasola.  That was fun and then she featured additional three articles she found interesting. I am extremely grateful to Sally, she is such a kind and generous person with her time.
Sally is a storyteller, wrote many books on a variety of subjects, health, and fiction, including four collections of short stories. She is a great promoter of other people’s work.

Thanks again Sally for your dedication to books and authors, my gratitude is immense.

My life in 2020 – What life? I was robbed of one year, this coming October I will turn my birthday off.
My friends are locked in within the coziness of their homes and are keeping distant as ordered 😱 and some other friends even have moved out of burning, tumultuous California.
Everyone I know is working from home and no one knows when and if they will return to be part of society as we knew it before the pandemic. Some people commute 4 hours round trip to work, I am sure they don’t look forward to starting that again.
Social life is almost inexistent, towns seem deserted, stores are open and empty of customers, I guess buying online has become easier, at least we don’t have to wear a mask. Not much is going on. My Honduran hairdresser comes to my home to do my hair.
I even watched two Operas from home. I paid a fee to be sitting in front of my computer dressed in short pants to watch the Operas streaming.
The Opera of course was good, I didn’t like the experience, the atmosphere of the Opera was lost.
My family lives in Italy, thanks to free WhatsApp video I can see and talk to them almost every day.
The TV station where I produce my TV shows is still closed. The travel bug is eating me up.

I look forward to new challenges in a new shaped life, maybe I will meet new friends close and far, the internet has been a saver for sure. Ciao,
Valentina

I Had A Dream | Valentina Cirasola | Designer and Author

Ah… figs…red inside, dark on the outside, that sweet, round and comforting taste I remember so well. Around this time of the year, that sweet taste takes me far away in time, in the company of people who are no longer in this world.

My father and his friends got all the kids up early in the morning, prepared our breakfast, got us all dressed cozy and warm for the woods, and out we went to pick fresh figs. The life span of figs is very short, thus we went often to pick figs until they lasted. Hundreds of fig trees filled the vast land cultivated with olive trees, walnut trees, and other fruit trees. We got closer to the figs and embraced the tree first. It was fun and lovely, I felt the earth vibrating, my young friends told me they felt the same vibrations, so, I was not imagining.
The adults picked the figs up high in the tree, us kids harvested those close to us. In the morning, figs were very cold and had drops of dew on it. We grabbed the baskets, covered the bottom with the large fig leaves, and gently aligned the delicate figs.

After we filled our baskets, we sat down on the grass, leaned on the fig tree, and started to peel the figs, cut cheese, added prosciutto slices, cracked almonds, and ate them until our heart was content. We lost our bearings for a few hours, we were in heaven. It was life’s greatest pleasure! We listened to the adults talking adults matters, it was fascinating, and kept eating in silence.

We spent a few hours eating and drinking warm stuff until the sun started to get too warm for the figs.
We had to remember to take home at least a basket full per person, otherwise, our moms would have not let us in the house.

The tastiest fruit of Summer is also one of the agriculture erotism, I think! After the figs I ate in Puglia, I have never found a similar experience anywhere else.

I woke up, it was a dream, I was there, in Puglia, under our usual large fig tree with my father. Ciao.

A Day Painted In Dull Colors | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

I woke as usual at 6:00 am, actually, a strange yellowish-greyish light in my bedroom woke me up, I thought the lights were left on somewhere in the house during the night, or some UFO had landed. The yellowish light came from outside, the garden was infused with darkness I have never known before, like a noir film. It wasn’t the usual spunky daylight of a day just starting at 6:00 am, and neither was the light of a falling day. It was just dark, grey, and flat, like a winter day, but it felt oppressive as if something was about to happen. As the day progressed, the sky became more yellow and surreal. My flowers have lost their colors, my lemons don’t look yellow, the birds are sensing something is going on and are not singing. I thought this is the way it would be if the sun leaves this earth. No, wait, it would be totally dark. My 5+ mile walk in the park by a lake was full of questions of the day, what if this, and what if that? I was in a total silent nature almost the whole time I was walking. A hand full of people were walking, biking, or exercising, they all had their heads down carrying who knows what kind of weight. It was a strange feeling.

This playboat is usually full of small children, it was deserted today.

The ducks usually make noises, fly around, and play in the water. Today, they were still on the quay and bunched up together in silence.

This is no filter effect, the pathway today looked just like this.

Some people are saying things like “it feels like Mars”, or “something will happen”. No human has gone to Mars yet, how would they know what it feels like? We still have vegetation and we will still eat real food today. The waters of lakes and seas are still there. The succession of day and night will still happen today. Nothing is going to happen, no Armageddon is in the plans of some divinity. Maybe someone will flip the wig today, but someone flips every day regardless of the strange light, the smokey air, and the effect of the cosmos on our psyche.
This is the result of all the wildfires here in California, even though I strongly believe most of these fires are arson, that’s another story.
Perhaps it is a good time for me to make yellow muffins from my lemons and brighten my day. Ciao,
Valentina

Beauty Marks | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

The editing of my home, all the bookshelves, my studio, my closets have become a great affair with the past. Memories are resurfacing in my mind and are taking me back to distant lands and moments. Fortunately, I don’t have many painful memories, I have always had a very dear and sweet family, my life with them has always been pleasant even with the difficulties and tensions that exist in all families, but together we always have overcome everything in the best way.
All my photos speak of the ways people dressed in other eras, the hairstyle, the jewelry, and some of the fashion habits now look a little ridiculous but were very well appreciated then. I can even hear the words spoken that have fallen out of fashion.

In Renaissance Venice, the city that was teeming with vices, idleness, sins, and forbidden loves, most women painted a beauty mark on their face, a custom which continued well into the 1970s. All my young aunts had a beauty mark on their face. Now that I know the meaning, I don’t think they needed a beauty mark, nature gifted them with a special beauty they carried to the old age. How could have they said no to fashion? It would have been like saying no to the mini skirt when came out on the market as a novelty. Every woman of every age wore beauty marks.

Virna-Lisi-24-Kaleidoscope Effect

Virna-Lisi-24-Kaleidoscope Effect

The Italian actress Virna Lisi, wore a beauty mark on the right lower corner of her mouth, she was a gorgeous woman with a rare beauty.
She was in many Hollywood films, one of them was “How to Murder Your Wife” with Jack Lemmon, in which she popped out of a wedding cake clad in a bikini.

 

Virna Lisi- rexfeatures

Virna Lisi_rexfeatures_Source: https://www.bbc.com/news

The beauty marks have different meanings if they are painted in different places on the face.

The “appassionata” (passioned) worn at the corner of the eye, the “coquette” (flirtatious) above the top lip, and the “assassina” (assassin) at the corner of the mouth. Of course, these terms refer to how women perceived themself sexually and how men responded to their provocations.
Sexual harassment didn’t exist, it was a game of seduction between women and men, accepted by both parts. For certain women, with a little more gumption than others was a game of “the highest bidder wins” to land themselves in a good or high social status position that often would have fixed their reputation (sort of). How time has changed! Ciao,

New Life To A Room | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

The kids are gone to college and to live their lives, you are left with either a boy’s or girl’s room without any function anymore.
If you are lucky, the kids will not return to live with mom and dad again as a single young adult. The first feeling that assails you is the emptiness of that room. No more mess, no more noises, and no more friends over. Closing the door behind and leaving it in the past, as the kids were still there is a crime. What do you do with that room then? Your budget will tell you what this extra space can become. It can be all yours, for all those activities you have been wanting to do and didn’t have space or time for it.

Often, I have been hired to redesign the kids’ room who flew away and turn them into a dream room for one of the parents.
It was fun to see the various requests I had. I made a game room, a reading room, a guest room, a craft room, a spacious walking closet, a wine room with controlled temperature (these last two rooms were so fun to remake), a painting studio, a music room, a home office, a dancing room, the choices are endless.

This one below was a boy’s room and became a cozy guest room, redesigned with affordable furniture and soothing colors. It is also used as a reading room when guests are not there. Hopefully, the boy of this house will return to visit their parents with a spouse and then with their own kids. The red daybed is there just for that reason.

Enjoy the Before and After transformation.

600 Years and Still Standing | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

August 19, 1418, Florence announced a competition for anyone to participate with an idea on how to build the dome for Santa Maria Del Fiore Cathedral. Up to that moment, the cathedral had been building for a century already and no one knew how to build a dome on top with a span of 143 feet diameter, thus the construction came to a dead end until a goldsmith and a clockmaker participated with extravagant plans and won the competition. He was Filippo Brunelleschi, forty-one at the time. For the next twenty-eight years, he would be preoccupied with the novelty construction methods he proposed for the dome and occupied building it. Brunelleschi revolutionized architecture with his original plans and designs.

In the Renaissance, the patrons of the arts threw a lot of money around to get the best-looking buildings, the most beautifully decorated rooms, or to acquire paintings made by the most known artists. It should have been easy to build something extravagant, in reality, it was not. Due to the lack of powerful machinery, Brunelleschi felt the need to invent sophisticated pieces of engineering machines and mechanic tools never been seen before to bring his plans to the realization. Some of those types of machinery are still in use today.

 

Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral

Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral – photo by Gabriele Colzi

The city official of Florence needed a large striking cathedral to reflect its political importance in the world of the 1500s Renaissance, a time when every European country was erecting the tallest buildings just to prove how close to God they could be. Brunelleschi’s life as the master of this project was not at all sweet. People tried their best to discredit him, there was gossip, feuds between prominent political Florentine families, intrigues, the fight between city, states, nobles, and all the artists competing, then the plague arrived and decimated Europe.

The dome construction kept going despite all the adversities and it was completed. It is the largest dome still standing since the fifteenth century. No one to these days has made a different form of Brunelleschi’s dome.
Somewhere in the world history is remembered, revered, studied, and not burned down.

Author Ross King wrote a book called Brunelleschi’s Dome, a very informative book about the construction of the dome, the machinery invented on the spot to get the job done, and all the disputes behind the curtains of this massive project. I read the book twice, I was so enthralled, that year I planned a trip to Florence, just to enjoy with my eyes what I read.
I also reviewed the book on Goodreads. Visit me there too, if you can.

Today, scrolling through my Instagram feed I found this beautiful photo by Gabriele Colzi from Florence. He makes pictures with a soft pink/yellowish tone using Huawei P40 Pro. His photographs are so beautiful. Many thanks to Gabriele to let me use his photo. Ciao,

One Day On A Titanic | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

A few of the astrologers I follow say this year is a time for morphing into something new. Dictionary.com defines morphing as “undergo or cause to undergo a gradual process of transformation”. I am sorry, this sounds too contrived and forced on all of us. Perhaps it is happening, but for right now I like to think of a transformation that needs a little adjusting.

Part of my transformation has been to eliminate all things no longer serve a purpose. Every day, I take an area of my studio and my house and edit it heavily. Today I was into photos, the types we used to print on paper, that filled up either boxes or albums. I have mine in albums very neatly categorized and dated. Many will be copied and put on my computer, and many will be burned this winter in my fireplace.

I found a peculiar ticket, a Boarding Pass to board the famous Titanic. This was a nice story I lived in first person.
One day the exhibition of the Titanic came to San Francisco, I decided to go with a friend.

 

Titanic Boarding Pass

Titanic Boarding Pass

 

As soon as we boarded the ship, we were given a pass each with the name of a real passenger on the back and a short story of why that person was on the ship.
The back of my boarding pass said it was for Mrs. Elisabeth Hocking (Eliza Neads) age 54 from Cornwall, England. She sailed from Southampton on April 10, 1912, to reach her son George who emigrated to Akron, Ohio, where he found a nice job and wanted his family to emigrate there as well. After the death of her husband, Eliza decided to make a change in her life, and at the time she was traveling with a few members of her family. She was in the second class of the Titanic.

Titanic Boarding Pass Back Side

Titanic Boarding Pass Back Side

 

Everything was recreated as if we were boarding the famous ship.
We saw the real luggage people took on board, the real dresses of survivors, the dining room was recreated to perfection, the grand stair, the rooms in various classes, the sounds, voices, and music on board of the Titanic were spread all over the exhibition and felt real.

The atmosphere was pleasant, especially hearing over speakers, people eating at dining tables and some of their conversations acted out by actors. It was pleasant to hear the rustle of beautiful women’s dresses walking or dancing at the tune of Waltzer.

We read many stories published at that time about the “unsinkable ship”. Apparently, the builders saved money by using less expansive steel.

The narrator told stories of some of the passengers, what they did in real life, and how they spent their last hours, some of them bickered the whole time, some fell in love.

I admired the décor of the salons, the woods, the stained glasses, the chandeliers, the silver tableware, and the entire style of the turning of the century. Well decorated and high style surrounded people in that era.
We even had a taste of a few foods prepared for the voyage, but something in the air was not quite right, we went to visit a tragedy… It was hard to enjoy it without thinking of the fate that awaited those passengers.

I had the boarding pass of Eliza, she survived and made it to Ohio.
The person named on my friend’s boarding pass did not make it.

Exiting the exhibition I had an odd thought. I came to America as an immigrant too, and even in a fantasy exhibition like this one, I was given a ticket for a survival female. To these days I am thinking of that. Ciao, Valentina

Color Me Yellow | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

I’ve been wearing a great deal of colors this year, I am more obsessed with colors than ever. I have been wearing all hues mostly from yellow, gold, pink, lilac, and violet/blue, two or three of these colors at a time in various combinations. I feel the world has gone grey this year. It doesn’t seem people have any desire to smile anymore, and that grey patina I see in people’s small facial areas left uncovered hurts me. My eyes, my soul, and my body need nourishment, to be exact color nourishment and protection against all of that. I am sure a lot of other people feel the same as I do, I find my support in the colors of nature, I don’t know where others find their support. We are connected to earth and planets, that’s the answer. In the morning I get up in the colors of planets I was born under. I feel aligned with the universe and I get up always happy to be awake again.

I am feeling the yellow a lot, the color of the sun, the only planet that gives life to earth, without the sun nothing would exist. Without the sun we wouldn’t write books, we wouldn’t cultivate tomatoes and lemons, we wouldn’t visit the Colosseum or ride a gondola in Venice. Yes, the yellow color of the sun is a universal battery energizer, it is there for the good, the bad, and the ugly people…

I heard someone on a Facebook group saying that she bought a yellow jacket for her birthday at age 57 and was the first time in her life she wore yellow. She was afraid of yellow, she said when I asked her why.
I wondered if she had been living in a dark box for 57 years, not liking yellow is like not liking the sun and not liking life. I understand people who have a pinkish tone skin don’t look good in yellow, but for them, it’s OK to wear it at the bottom part of the body or simply as accessories.

Val-Green-Yellow-Berry-Gold

Green-Yellow-Berry-Gold

There has never been a time when I have not put on a stitch of yellow or gold, or not surrounded myself with yellow. Take a look at my picture to understand I live in colors.
My weekly color challenge for this past week was yellow-gold, green, and amber. I challenge myself and others just to see how they interpret colors.

From time to time each color has a job to do, its wavelengths have magnetism, which turns into energy. One can change the whole life around with the knowledge of colors.
For this week I used green for interior peace, I am wearing it in one form or another and I eat it as well. Yellow and gold for manifesting my goals. I don’t have any amber clothes, but I have amber rings and I am wearing them all week to balance emotions, clear the mind, and release negative energy. That was the work these three colors had to do for me this week. Ciao,

Reblog Book Cover Reveal | Valentina Cirasola

It’s COVER REVEAL day.
I am pleased to announce a cover reveal for my friend and author’s next book, Hiding Cracked Glass, by James J. Cudney IV, which is the sequel to the debut, Watching Glass Shatter. He says: “I still can’t believe it’s my ninth book in three years…” Believe it, it’s real. You are so prolific.😊❤️
https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/102837542/posts/2837888769

Hiding Cracked Glass by James Cudney

Book Cover – Hiding Cracked Glass – by James Cudney IV

In the words of the author:

“This contemporary fiction family drama is the sequel to Watching Glass Shatter and part of the Perceptions of Glass series.

An ominous blackmail letter appears at an inopportune moment. The recipient’s name is accidentally blurred out upon arrival. Which member of the Glass family is the ruthless missive meant for?

In the powerful sequel to Watching Glass Shatter, Olivia is the first to read the nasty threat and assumes it’s meant for her. When the mysterious letter falls into the wrong hands and is read aloud, it throws the entire Glass family into an inescapable trajectory of self-question. Across the span of eight hours, Olivia and her sons contemplate whether to confess their hidden secrets or find a way to bury them forever. Some failed to learn an important lesson last time. Will they determine how to save themselves before it’s too late?

Each chapter’s focus alternates between the various family members and introduces several new and familiar faces with a vested interest in the outcome. As each hour ticks by, the remaining siblings and their mother gradually reveal what’s happened to them in the preceding months, and when the blackmailer makes an appearance at Olivia’s birthday party, the truth brilliantly comes to light.

Although everyone seemed to embrace the healing process at the end of Watching Glass Shatter, there were hidden cracks in the Glass family that couldn’t be mended. Their lives are about to shatter into pieces once again, but this time, the stakes are even higher. Someone wants to teach them a permanent lesson and refuses to stop until success is achieved.

Hiding Cracked Glass will be available for pre-sale very soon. It will officially be published on October 8th, 2020, which is the three year anniversary of Watching Glass Shatter, my debut novel. If you’ve never read that book, now’s your chance to catch up!”

Ad Maiora, James, your book will be a success.

Reblog From Campbells World | Valentina Cirasola | Author and Designer

It is so nice to wake up in the morning and find someone talking about you, isn’t it? I am honored to be featured on Campbells World Blog. Author Patty l. Fletcher was so kind to interview me yesterday about my life and in general about my character as a designer and author. Dorothy Atkins, an artist and one of my followers on Facebook said: “very interesting interview. I got a real sense of your drive, creativity, and love of life”.
I am very shy if I have to talk about me, actually, I don’t like it at all. Some people follow me because I show beautiful things in life we can all do to have harmony and serenity in our days but would like to know more about me as a person other than what I do in my work. However, I get interviewed often in various forms, then it comes out I am a strong, disciplined person, my business made me even stronger as I had to deal with difficult and demanding people, and having my family on the other side of the world, made me realize I only have me to lean on and a few close friends.
Enough of me, here is the interview –  https://campbellsworld.wordpress.com/2020/07/29/wordpress-wednesday-featured-author-of-the-week-meet-valentina-authorinterviewdesign/

Read about Patty here – https://campbellsworld.wordpress.com/about she an amazing woman who lives her life with a seeing-eye dog and a caring family. She is a writer/author and owns her marketing company supporting authors in their writing needs, as well as offering other networking services.
