Dear quarantine…

Dear quarantine, keep it up. I really needed to slow down and breathe. This week I am not working and in the last few days there has been a lot of sun, which is a miracle here in Cambridge. So, I’m recovering the love relationship with myself that in recent times – perhaps because of the frequent dark, cold and difficult “weather” … – I had interrupted. You drive me crazy, Gi. How pleasant are these last days.. I’ve been spending my vacation taking my time, chanting daimoku (nam myoho renge kyo), reading a lot as I haven’t been able to do for a long time – and even in the sun most of the time.- I also do a few online workout sessions, I watch documentaries, films and TV series, listen to music, sing at the karaoke with Alexa while I am tidying up the kitchen at the end of the day (sometimes I also do a little dance), I write, call or videocall my friends and family, and I also use my beautiful camera to take photos like this one. For now, the scenario will be limited to the walls and home garden, guys.
Grateful for my present (and also for what has passed, although in some cases it did it on me with the same delicacy as a speeding twenty-carriage train)

While Christmas is approaching in Cambridge

There have been many things going through my head recently, and I have been experiencing a sort of writer’s block.. which I would rather define a ‘total expression’s block’. I am working on that. Meanwhile, when I need to fight against the short days of the winter here and against my cold thoughts, I go out for short walks. A small excerpt below 😜👇

A good moment in Cambridge ;)

Ok, I haven’t written here in a long time…since I left for Naples and then I came back to Cambridge with the desire to be still in Naples etc etc…And since I don’t like to depress anyone with my  negative thoughts, I kept silent and posted only a few positive images (maybe just a seafood salad actually.. 😅) Anyway, here we are again, in July, after a very short summer week in June, and then some autumn days alternated with few sporadic warm days like the one you can see here ! 👇

Yesterday, I was working on my laptop, some good music was playing,  and I noticed that it was not so bad out of the window, in harmony with what’s in here…😜
