OH MY, I’m putting my house up for sale and heading to Hawaii! Can’t wait to feel the blast from HIS winds of 75mph! Batten down the hatches and board up the windows…it’s time to GET IN THE WAY OF THIS TROPICAL STORM! Can only imagine the power once HE unleashes his might against all of us. Luckily for those already living in Hawaii, the storm ended up being several hundred miles north of the islands. At one point Ignacio was ONE of 3 Category Four Hurricanes in the Pacific, joined by KILO and JIMENA (which means PIERO and GIANLUCA when translated into Italian!) Ignacio reached his peak intensity over the weekend and is now weakening. It’s OK, Ignacio. You deserve a rest after all of the concerts and now this powerful storm you have whipped up. And besides, my house didn’t sell as fast as I thought it would. 🙂 ~ Jane

OUR A LIST:
A while back Lisa used the words, “the power, the passion, and the joy” to describe our guys. I love it. What a power house of qualities all wrapped up in one whole—Il Volo. One of their powers is the emotions they evoke in the listeners. When watching them I can’t decide whether they are more like a “cold refreshing glass of water on a hot day” (Luna Nascosta) or a temperature-raising, pulse racing hot toddy on a cold day, (Surrender) Of course, they are both, and that’s what makes them what they are. They are whatever we need them to be at any given time…..sometimes refreshing, sometimes hot, always genuine and adorable.
Speaking of “adorable,” it occurs to me that that’s a word frequently used when talking about these guys. I know it’s my “go to” word for them—that and “amazing.” We can hardly mention them without using one of these words. So, being a former teacher, I’m leaning toward giving them a grade, and you know it would be an “A”. (Actually I spent 41 years in first grade, so I didn’t do much grading.) But I can think of lots of reasons to give them an A.
They are ADMIRABLE. How often we comment on how proud we are of their demeanor…how kind and thoughtful they are with the fans and with their own families…how they set such a good example for the young generation.
They are ADVENTURESOME. Remember the camel riding in the desert? traveling all over the world? high diving and fast driving?
They are ABLE to leap over tall buildings in a single bound—NO, not that, but they are able to keep a schedule of work, travel, and meeting hordes of fans always with an endless supply of smiles, hugs, and kisses. And patience.
They are extremely ADROIT. Dictionary definition: skillful, capable, accomplished, gifted and talented.
They are AROUSING. (Down, Marie) Meaning that they arouse enthusiasm and good feelings in their listeners.
I suppose there are more A words to describe out guys, but that’s enough for now. They are definitely A quality in my grade book.
