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.”

Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse

When my train reaches Berlin, will you be waiting on the platform of the station for me? Will you be willing to forgive and forget all the silly mistakes I made?

I imagine your slender figure, your face standing out of the many impatient faces on the platform, your awkward smile on your lips trying to restraint your feelings, the crazy hair and that fixed gaze of yours.

Cozy

It was her favourite spot in the house, that little corner with all her memories framed, the white sofa, light entering through the curtains, and that big cozy blanket, always ready to accompany her with a steaming cup of tea.

Slow life

Back to the blog after a long long time, a journey of doubts, heat (I really hate summer) and tiredness. September is around the corner (and my holidays, too) and it’s time to make new starts, new goals… or maybe old goals with new perspectives.

Slowly everything settles.
