Jett Superior laid this on you on || July 3, 2007 || 3:55 pm

It is these things that delight me.

There is this boy in Italy. In nineteen ninety-nine he was living in Germany and was homesick. He wrote eight of his friends a letter, proposing that they all get together in a specific place eight years later. That meeting took place on 18 May of this year. There was no flickr then, but there just so happens to be now, so the Italian man captured this get-together and posted it for us to share.

What a beautiful idea….from start to finish.

You can find Dario’s blog here.

    I think that is an awesome idea that Dario had. Just think of how many “down” moments that may have gotten all 8 of you through, knowing that you had that get-together to look forward to, even if everything else in your life seemed to be going to hell in a handbasket.

    The brilliance of that idea made me click the link for his blog. And um, I can’t read that language. :( I may have to find a page translator. What language is that?

    The blog is in Italian, I can’t read it either. The real mystery is which guy’s picture Jett stumbled across and clicked on to find those guys…

    Skillzy is right, the weeplog is in Italian (or, as we Superiors call it, One Of The Mother Tongues). My italian is limping, consisting mostly of pet names, curt-but-loving phrases, and somewhat creative swears.

    Thank you, Nunna.

    Luckily, Dario’s English is far more extensive than my Italian and we’ve managed to toss messages back and forth.

    As for WHAT made me hit up on his flickr stream, this photo here caught my eye on the main page (and is now marked as one of my favorites). I like how she’s holding the spray can like a weapon. The bright colors and the fierce look on her face are fabulous as well.
