Listening to Carla Bruni my French Italian heroine who I turn to in all kinds of situatiuons. When I'm in love, when I'm heartbroken, when I feel overwhelmed with emotions and when I feel completely empty. There is someting extremely soothing in her voice, its so personal and has such depth to it and she has the most beautiful face to match her voice. I remember the first time I heard Carla Bruni, it was when I was living in Paris, I remember being touched instantly. I also remember the first time I listened to her songs with *X* who went completely silent and then said "even though I have no idea what she is singing its the most beautiful thing I've ever heard". Translating her French poetic texts is quite tricky, and hardly makes a difference since the melody together with her voice are in some way universaly understandable.
Right now I'm listening to Carla in an attempt to calm my stomach which revolting as a reaction of recent emotional stress. Being constantly stressed and depressed for 3 months last year and not taking care of my body has resulted in that my stress threshold is extremely low and my stomach will let me know very quickly. So at the moment I'm cutting out alcohol, spicy food, quick snacks and taking it very easy and eating lots of pills...
