My Journey

and keep walking...

The drastic decision I took in 2017 (to leave - at age of 42 and with a family to maintain - the safe employment and follow my dreams and passions) didn't come from nowhere, it wasn't just madness and neither the 40-year crisis, but the necessary step of a journey I started long time ago, maybe since I was born...
I spent years making love with this idea and then fight it back, I tried to understand and compromise to the world and to the common living around me, and then I rejected them again and again...
And during all these yearsI wrote something about it: articles, short stories, thoughts and observations about me, my life (what I was doing with it and what I could do with it) and my dreams.
All these words are part of me, they are my journey...

The Possibility to Choose

I woke up late this morning: I forgot to set the alarm and I slept some hours more than usual. I woke up happy, anyway, and rested (probably I needed it) and I replanned my day: no training today,...

Patagonia

Ciao… He sent his SOS to the world but no one got it. He tried, but no one really understood it. “Peter and the Wolf “ and a  situation in some ways paradoxical. On the other hand he didn’t...

Blessed 7th of December

A year ago I wrote on my journal: “The bomb blasted at work! At home early – stress – union…It’s the turning point!” A year ago it happened what brought me to take a radical, drastic and, for many...

The Truth is in Front of Us and We Don’t See It

Growing up, moving on my way, I started to believe, more and more, that solving our problems, overcoming difficulties, is much easier than what we believe. Yet, when I was down, when I went through dark times, I could...

New Horizons

I’ve just arrived at work, as usual I’m the first. Sunny day, the morning jogging has brought me back to life: I’m feeling energetic, happy, in a fantastic mental and physical condition. After few hours I’m starting to feel...

Work Makes Man Noble

I’ve always had a twisted relationship with the working life, which means I have not still been able to understand how much this affects the private life and vice versa. Until not long time ago, I was always complaining...

Living the Moment

We are postponing things too often. “Let’s do it tomorrow, or this the weekend, or next month…” And then, when December is approaching, we will start to postpone it to the beginning of the new year. As if postponing...

Reduce the Restrictions

Until not long time ago I was self-defeating, limiting myself. I unconsciously restricted the flow of life to me and, passively, I was letting it slide away fast. Without doing anything, apathetic and numb in the nothingness of many...

Never Stop Dreaming

Since some time ago  I decided to do it  again. It costs nothing and it’s good for me. I am a dreamer, I imagine and design new perspectives in my mind. I let the child inside me to come...

Sorry My Ass

Some time ago I wrote about the path we can follow to reach happiness, inner peace, or, anyhow, a more serene life. Actually, I was talking about working on ourselves, and how, if done well, it becomes enjoyable, and...

Surprise Your Life and Surprise Yourself

Last weekend I was in Warsaw, Poland. I landed shortly after midnight at an unknown and empty airport. I took the first taxi which, shortly after, left me in a suburban, deserted, cold road. I hesitated for five minutes,...

Life May Be Always the Same, But We Can Change The Way to Look at It

Lately I’ve been taking some time for myself, to remake order and change my life, or at least the vision of it: I wrote new pages of the instruction to my book and I reviewed and completed already written...

The Light is Still On

I must have had a bad dream last night and I woke up with an unpleasant and strange mood. In the silence of the early dawn, while I’m enjoying the first cigarette of the day, I remember part of...

And That’s It

…I’m smoking another cigarette, and I’ve already lost the count for today. It’s another wonderful day, not a cloud, temperatures between 10 and 15 degrees, and a sky so deep blue that makes you want to go… And I...

Lost Time and Not

Time flies fast and relentless. I realised it by looking at the statistics of this site and seeing how little I wrote in the last few months. I realise it now, thinking it’s already Tuesday, and this week, like...

Inlaid Time

Along the path, tall and large secular trees, some of which are marked by old letters of lovers or just by names and dates; it was funny to think that those who had graven those hearts and those letters,...

Leaving the Road

Leaving the road to get lost as in life, it will always be worth it if by that I can find pieces of Heaven hidden and lost … So never take away my need to explore never take away...

The Most Beautiful of All

It came to my mind yesterday ,as I was driving, so I went to check it in the evening: the twentieth anniversary of my first poetry has just passed by. Nothing important, just a personal commemoration.

I Wanted to Win the World Championship

“I wanted to win the world championship, .. and instead I find myself here shopping” is a quote from a song of Alex Britti that struck me a lot when I listened it for the first time. I played...

Opportunities

A few days ago I read that in Sweden we have reached the amount of 400,000 unemployed which is a remarkable and worrying percentage on a population of about ten million people. I myself have been in that situation...

Getting Lost

Leaving, traveling…getting lost! Between unknown roads And already caressed thoughts… I’ve always been a wanderer, an adventurer in exploring and finding always new places: just let’s go, I’ll decide where later on… When I was three, some old ladies...

On My Own Way and the Value of Things

Who has been following me for a while probably knows about my situation of “happy unemployed”. For those who are new here, they can find in my previous posts the reason of my happiness, first because I can now...

Small Things

 (whiStrange Sunday, yesterday. Slim and rare snowflakes that slowly try to stick around, put on a thin veil that then disappears and reappears, or create only glossy whiffles on the grey asphalt. And so I take the car to...

Grown Up in Lies

We grew up in a world that told us so many, maybe too many lies. I’m talking about my generation. I was born in the mid-1970s, but I can not remember them. Instead I remember the 80s as a...

You Get What You Give

For some time now, I got close to what they call the “positive thinking” way of living. In life you must always touch the bottom to cling to something (whatever it is) to try to come back to the...

Society

“This is living” was the masterful advertising of the latest video-games console. Was that the real life? Was that the perception of living for millions of people, and not only kids or teenagers, happy to rush home, and close...

Years Won’t Come Back

Does Unemployment Justify Slavery?

Some days ago I met an old colleague of mine. As often happens, having not shared anything else in life than working time from 8am to 4pm, we ended up immediately talking about work and the company from where...

Mountains of Mine

The legs are struggling while I’m going uphill, but they know the way. The muscles harden more and more but they will resist. Short breath, crazy heartbeat, the altitude starts to make me feel sick. There could be a...

Going Away is Different than Traveling

He was locked in his hotel room on the thirteenth floor. The wide open windows let come in hot, suffocating air. A grey sky, as homogeneous and heavy layer over the city, made the whole situation even more overwhelming....

Writing

In the last couple of months, thanks to my situation of being unemployed and thanks to the early arrival of the Scandinavian autumn, I do what I’ve always dreamed of doing: the full time writer. Daydreaming? A way to...

And Then?

We spend time trying to kill the time, this is the point. After the years and all those stages imposed by the society and the family, we find ourselves in our 20s or 30s, already addicted and swallowed by...

Returning to Mother Nature

I let my life slide faraway from me. The world we know, and in which we are forced to live, runs on a highway just few hundreds meter away. Here comes the echo of fast cars and slow trucks...

Money Can’t Buy Happiness

A few years ago, during the lunch break, I was talking to a colleague, mostly complaining about our job. As often happens in workplaces, where one feels more as companions of misfortune than just colleagues, we were deploring our...

The Will to Go

I often think about the endless landscapes of Argentinean Patagonia. I do not need to look at the thousands of photos that I took then,  I carry these landscapes inside me and often they pop-up in front of my...

The Work and The Utopia of Doing Nothing

I’ve been working almost 20 years. I did a bit of everything, so many different jobs and only on rare occasions I felt really satisfied and fulfilled (and only for short time). Most of the time I found myself...

Sunset

The sky slides fast tonight. A layer of clouds like sheep following the instinct of the flock. The sky doesn’t stop even tonight, it doesn’t care about anything, it goes on its way. Fast, selfless, free, it runs toward...
