Reading

For me, a library is a magical maze; a bookshop, the definition of heaven; a book, my life, my dreams and my future. I love to smell old books, to touch the rough pages, to admire the typography, I take notes, and even write (with pencil, always) thoughts or just mark my favourite quotes. I put things inside books, papers or train tickets and then forgot about them. I have many books, but not enough.

“Literature is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.”

Sleepless night

I can’t sleep. It’s one of those moments in my life that whenever I go to bed I just toss and turn hopelessly. I stare at the white ceiling, remembering the star stickers I used to have many years ago, how I look at their luminescence waiting for the sleep to come. Whenever I felt distressed or worried about something, I just stare at the stars, until I finally fell asleep.
