ABOUT #METOO #TIMESUP and A NEW ERA

January 15, 2018

1960s the Sexual Revolution was a social movement that challenged traditional codes of behavior related to sexuality and interpersonal relationships. Our ancestor probably felt so encaged by the rules that religion & society were imposing them that they felt that they needed more freedom of sexual expression. Cut to: 2018 After decades of sex scandals and sex driven advertising campaigns,…

THE DREAM

January 15, 2018

I left Italy with a dream. In a moment where Life had taken away so much from me. I had dreamed about America. I felt like the character of Novecento in Barricco’s novel. I had America in my eyes! What is a dream made of? It’s not logical. It had nothing to do with what…

LEARNING TO FLY

January 8, 2018

There are moments when I stop and look a bit back and a bit forward. I archive a part of my past and I set new intentions for the future. It’s always been like finding myself on the border of a cliff, in which I look around me and I realize that I’m just one step…

NEW BEGINNINGS

January 1, 2018

Here we are, 2018! I bet you all did your new year’s resolutions and expressed your wishes for the year to come.  I’m not a big fan of NYE and resolutions. It always sounds to me like I have to sort out an entire year in one night, commit to a set of self-imposed rules…

A CHRISTMAS CAROL Past, Presents & Future

December 25, 2017

“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens was one of my favorite Christmas tales as a kid. I used to read it every year or watch a Disney’s animated version of it. The lesson I got out of this story is that our past has determined who we are in the present, and our present determines…

AIN’T NO DADDY’S GIRL

December 11, 2017

I wish I could write stories about my Dad the same way I can write them about my Mom. The unfortunate truth is that my daddy was a man that I barely knew, and that’s such a pity. My childhood memories with him have been some of the best of my Life. My dad was…

DRAW ME YOUR STORY

November 27, 2017

There was a time in Milan where things were not going well in many areas of my life.  It was the beginning of the recession and there wasn’t much work. I was sending out my resume and making calls but nothing was happening. So I decided it was about time to launch my first business…

SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION

November 20, 2017

Be the change you want to see in the world. – Gandhi – When I was in 4th grade I was assigned the role of Marie Antoinette in a school recital about the French Revolution. Although I was one of the main characters I couldn’t really sympathize with her. Instead, I would for the revolutionaries…
