  • THIS VISION IS THE CIRCLE OF LIFE. WITHOUT CREATIVITY IN LIFE, WITHOUT SPIRITUALITY, WITHOUT FOOD, WE SHALL SURELY JUST EXIST INSTEAD OF TRULY LIVE.

    10. 10. MY ITALIAN HERITAGE<br />MEAL: PASTA FAZUL MARTINO STYLE<br />ART: THE MONA LISA/DA VINCI<br />http://www.historyofpaintings.com/leonardo-da-vinci-art-gallery.html<br />MUSIC: http://youtu.be/mURZQNpKiLQ<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69O4PXzAQ5Y<br />SPIRITUALITY: MY ITALIAN ROOTS<br />
    11. 11. PASTA FAZUL MARTINO STYLE<br />The thought behind this dish is to combine your leftover beans with your leftover pasta. If you just want to make it from scratch that’s perfectly good too.<br /> This is the way I like it:<br />Brown some red onions with some garlic. Add a pound of cooked tomatoes (I prefer organically grown), some oregano and parsley, and ORECCHIETTE, or any other pasta you like. I love to add the cannelini beans with mine. <br />Brown some Italian sausage, drain and mix into the dish <br />If you get the opportunity, listen to Dean Martin sing about pasta fazul in “That’s Amore” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69O4PXzAQ5Y<br />Mangiapaisano<br />
    12. 12. MY ITALIAN SPIRITUAL ROOTS<br />I was raised Roman Catholic, and I veered heavily from it during my life; trying out other ways, other religions, and others’ belief systems. But the most important thing I want to share on this blog is my own spiritual experience. <br />Laying on the ground in the back yard of our home when I was a mere 4 years old, I looked up in the sky and there was a corporeal vision, concrete, fully formed and in color, of the SACRED HEART, and next to it the VIRGIN MARY. Both of these things are from my Catholic heritage. I gazed at it for a long time, turning away, blinking, and covering my eyes and looking once again; yet it remained. I ran in to get my parents and my father came out but did not see what I saw. I tried desperately to point it out to him, but to no avail.<br />It was years later that I remembered this vision once again. The SACRED HEART. The sacred heart symbolizes the love of Jesus. There is a rich history surrounding those whose devotion was to the sacred heart of Jesus (Catholic Encyclopedia).<br />The impact of recalling once again, this vision, infuses me with further awareness to be dutiful to a calling of devotion for what Jesus stands for. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. <br />I consider myself liberated from organized, structured religion, and am more mystical in faith than anything. Yet Love is the greatest command, and I can be grateful today that I had parents who inculcated spiritual values in me from birth. <br />
