"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Via Lucis



il signor non è morto, ei fulgente ha dischiuso l’avel,
inneggiam al signore risorto oggi asceso alla gloria del ciel!

Give praise, the Lord is not dead:
the sun’s rays are shining;
 his tomb is disclosed.
Give praise, the Lord has risen today.
He ascends to the glory of heaven!

From Cavelleria Rusticana
Music: Pietro Mascagne
Libretto: Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci

Photograph taken On Easter Sunday morning, in Fort Cochin.
