“Why cleavest thou to this mere name of tree,
So that thou art utterly balked and disappointed ?
Pass over names and look to qualities,
So that qualities may lead thee to essence”

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mevlânâ/Mawlānā, Mevlevî/Mawlawī, and more popularly simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Wikipedia

Napoli; Civitate Civilé

Napoli; Civitate Civilé

They have not forgotten in Napoli.

That clean toilets start with the users thereof.
That you can hang your laundry outside, if you do it in a civilized manner.
That too much garbage in the street is uncivilized.
That you , and your children, can cross the street without traffic lights if drivers drive in a civil manner.
That shopkeepers put their cardboard boxes outside in an orderly fashion.

Napoli; Civitate Civilé.
And the spirit of Maradonna is still strong.
And the spirits of the dead are alive and cherished.

Beautiful Napoli !
But dont go there, you will be robbed alive.
And especially don’t go to Sanitat.
And dont take the train to Pompei, you will be robbed alive !
Especially if you are american.
And dont visit the market places, you will be robbed alive !

Beautiful Napoli.
They have not forgotten in Napoli.
Napoli; Civitate Civilé.
But dont go there. You will be robbed alive !
