If you can spare any loose change for a coffee to support my work, there's a Ko-Fi link in my bio, thanks.

And if you need a catch up on yesterday's news, here's the link for the start of Saturday's thread.

So it's Day 417 of the war, and I have to say "Khrystos Voskres" (Christ Is Risen) or "Happy Easter" to all my readers from #Ukraine - and indeed #Russia if they are in the minority which opposes war.
The same wishes to all Orthodox believers celebrating Easter today.

(p. 522) The ultimate end game of the 18th century Russian Orthodox church's 'Ressourcement', adopted by the Novus Ordo & which provided the framework for Vatican II, is recognizing the N. O. church's subservient relationship with the synagogue as typified by the Noahide Laws.

OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: My 88 year old grandmother in Venice, FL suggested riding out the storm in her mobile home. No ma’am. Grandson is on the way. Chronicling my journey to get MIMI (or grandmama) to safety. I need safe travels and plentiful gasoline #HurricaneIan #Evacuation Image
OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: brilliant sunset leaving Gainesville, down I-75. It’s the whole God is a gator vibe. Mimi aka grandmama is 88 year old Denise Pirhalla and not much of a gator fan. She’s lived in Venice 25+ years and has never evacuated for a hurricane. #hurricaneIan ImageImage
OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: my gut just told me to get off at an exit in Sumter County to top off my gas tank. My Jetta can go far, but not 400 miles roundtrip on reg unleaded. Thank you @bp_America and @TATravelCenters for keeping us all going- literally. #HurricaneIan #evacuation Image

Doing three film festivals back to back (Edinburgh, FrightFest, Venice) was either a brilliant idea or a terrible idea. History does not yet relate which. Image
At least when I get back, I’ll have nine whole days before the LFF screenings start.
Travel is so *weird*. Last night: fun at the Phoenix for the closing night of FrightFest. Tonight: this. Image

“It was a windy night, and before my retina registered anything, I was smitten by a feeling of utter happiness: my nostrils were hit by what to me has always been its synonym, the smell of freezing seaweed.” Joseph Brodsky, Watermark #Venicebooks #Venice #Venezia #Brodsky Image
“The backdrop was all in dark silhouettes of church cupolas and rooftops; a bridge arching over a body of water’s black curve, both ends of which were clipped off by infinity.” Joseph Brodsky, Watermark #Venicebooks #Venice #Venezia #Brodsky Image

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

Diary from Italy, 1 April 2020 - on the need for the EU 27 to get their act together before it is too late. Includes English version of @CarloCalenda's letter to @faznet Thread. Full diary:…
Social unrest is growing in #Italy Italy as people are worrying not simply about catching the #coronavirus coronavirus but about running out of food and money particularly in the poorer southern regions of the country.
The 27 countries of the European Union remain split and the European Commission has never seemed less effective. Europe risks a division that will be irreparable. And Italians are rightly exasperated with countries that seem to favour the economic over the human, wealth over life

20 years ago, I was an inveterate traveller, happy to have all my possessions in storage, ready to go anywhere in the world with very little notice.
When 9/11 happened, + planes around the world were grounded, my 1st reaction was selfish: I mourned the fact...
...that I seemed to be about to lose access to the world, and my freedom to travel might be curtailed.
Now in my 50s, with a family, I'm re-experiencing that sense of loss, as #covid19 grounds planes and closes borders.
This weekend, I saw somebody in a park with a cloth bag from a #Dublin bookstore named The Winding Stair, and felt a pang of loss: this shop, unknown to me, was, by the force of things, likely to remain so, for weeks, months, maybe forever...
