Interview with Pedro Paricio

I love colours, design and art. If I was a painter I will paint my brain in different magical shades of beautiful blue, red and green. But I’m an actress so I’ll paint my brain with pure, wonderful feelings of a sick soul.
Love Pedro. 😍

“…when I am happy I go to see art. When I am sad, I go to see art. Art gives meaning to my life”. Pedro Paricio

Walking New Bond Street (one of the most expensive and chic in London) I came across the Halcyon Gallery quite a few months ago. Like most of the shops along this street, it looks like a place where I will not find anything that my credit card could cope with. But the good thing is that you don’t have to pay an entrance fee. You can expect very friendly and courteous people and the most important, amazing art.

So during one of those visits I found out about Pedro Paricio and his work. I am not an art expert but I can tell you what I like and what I don’t. Paricio’s paintings are huge magnets full of colour and make me wish…

Who is Tracey Emin?

She is Dani’s favourite modern artist.

Why is that?

Because she is cruel, beautiful and her art is powerfully sad and profound.

THE LAST GREAT ADVENTURE IS YOU is Tracey’s last work. Dani went to see it this afternoon.

Dani reports:

” The feeling when you get in the immense space at the White Cube is Misplacement.

I nearly felt lost. But not because i couldn’t find directions but because the pieces of art all around were eating my soul and suddenly I was part of something too big and strong.

I wanted to cry and shout out loud!!!

The beauty of Tracey’s work it is not to be seen in what you see.

You have to search for it because it touches your senses freely with no inhibitions or restrictions.

I took some pictures to share with you but please, if you can, go and see it yourself.

I really hope you enjoy.”



“But you unmoved almost sleeping are you not just another animal”
“Lion love engulfed in my flames”


“I never saw your eyes opened. Though I felt your heart in all the mountain of my Holiness”






Pensiero del giorno/Thought of the day

Pensiero dedicato ai bambini che oggi giocavano felici con i loro piedini in acqua mentre io sorseggiavo il mio caffe.

Thought dedicated to the kids that today were playing happy with their little feet in the water while i was drinking my coffee.


Osservare i bambini mi riempe il cuore di gioia.
Mi emoziona immensamente la loro liberta’.
Se solo noi adulti, cosi’ sapienti, ci fermassimo a guardarli un po’ di piu’ ci renderemmo conto di come e’ semplice essere felici.
Quei bambini con i loro piedini nell’acqua erano cosi’ spensierati:
urlavano e correvano in tutte le direzioni. Cadevano, si rialzavano, vivevano intensamente con l’innocenza che solo i bambini conservano.
Fermiamoci a guardarli.
Loro, i Bambini, hanno tanto da insegnarci. A noi adulti spesso cosi’ infelici e spesso assenti ad emozioni e sentimenti.
Grazie BIMBI!!!
Oggi mi avete aperto l’anima e mi avete ricordato di non smettere mai di essere bimba almeno una volta ogni giorno!!!

Observing kids fills up my heart with joy.
Their freedom excites me immensely .
If only us adults, so wise, will stop to look at them more often we’ll realize how easy it is to be happy.
Those kids with their feet in the water were so lighthearted:
They were screaming and running in all different directions. They fall down, lift up, they lived intensively with the innocence that only kids preserve.
Let’s stop to look at them.
Them, the kids, have a lot to teach us. Yes to us adults often so unhappy e often absents to emotions and feelings.
Thank you so much KIDS!!!
Today you open my soul and you have reminded me never to stop being a kid at least once every day

Letter to Dani from Dani-Lettera a Dani da Dani



My dear Dani,

sometimes life is just funny and you find yourself stuck in a circle of thoughts. The more you think the more it gets complicated.

I know that in the past months you baby found difficult to understand where to go and what to do. I was there with you.

I felt the pain and i tried to support you in the best possible way. Feeling lost is a strong feeling to deal with. But it brings personal growth. It makes you go where no human being wants to go. Too scary. It moves seas within and makes you stronger.

And you did all that always with a smile on your beautiful face!!!

I’m proud of you my girl. I want to shout it out loud. I want to remind you to be yourself, always, doesn’t matter what.

And when you feel blue, embrace it, make it yours and it will go away!!!

I have attached a picture of the sea taken in Sardinia. I know you love it. It relaxes you and enhance your senses.

With all my love

Mia cara Dani,

A volte la vita e’ giusto un po’ simpatica e ti ritrovi bloccata in un circolo di pensieri. Piu’ ci pensi piu’ diventa complicato.

Lo so che negli ultimi mesi amore hai trovato difficile capire dove andare e cosa fare. Ero li’ con te.

Ho sentito il dolore ed ho cercato di supportarti nel miglior modo possibile. Sentirsi persi e’ un sentimento forte da affrontare. Ma porta ad una crescita personale. Ti porta dove nessun essere umano vuole andare. Troppo pauroso. Muove i mari interiori e ti rende piu’ forte.

E tu hai fatto tutto cio’ sempre con un sorriso sul tuo bellissimo viso!!!

Sono orgogliosa di te ragazza mia! E voglio gridarlo forte. Voglio anche ricordarti di essere sempre te stessa.

E quando ti senti triste, riconoscilo, falla tua come emozione e andra’ via cosi’, da sola.

Ho incluso una foto del mare scattata in Sardegna. Lo so che il mare ti rilassa ed esalta i tuoi sensi.


Con tutto l’amore
