‘O sole mio!’ is Neapolitan for ‘my sunshine, or ‘my sun.’ You probably have heard the well-known song. I feel silly because I always thought it meant ‘lonely me’ or ‘by myself.’ You know solo, alone. ‘O sole mio!’ is a prettier song than ‘You Are My Sunshine,’ but looks like they mean the same thing.
I don’t mind solitude but hated losing our wifi the other day. No streaming video, no internet, yikes! So guess what ? I read a 455 page book in 2 days. I thought I did not have the patience to read books any more and I am glad to find out that I do. It was ‘The Legacy’ by Yrsa Sigurdardóttir, an Icelandic author. I read one of her books a few years ago, ‘Ashes to Dust,’ and I really liked it. This latest was another page turner. Now I am starting another by the same author titled, ‘I Remember You.’ This one is spooky, scary, about ghosts creaping around and I think they kill people. Have just started so I will have to let you know. Not good to read it before you are going to sleep. I kept the night-light on for a while last night. And good that I wasn’t sleeping solo.
