Day 142 – Silence

D

Silence can cure. Silence is the only thing that cleans your soul and opens your mind. And when you sit in silence, things happen,things move around you because the world doesn’t stand still waiting for you, but it can move in your favor. If you listen to the silence you create around you, you can hear the useless noise and separate it from the happy shouts, the needed screams, the laughter...

Day 51 – Weird conversation with my pain

D

I hear a knock like someone knocking on the door. I ignore it and move on with my day. “It’s nothing important.” I tell myself. The knocking becomes stronger and stronger. “What are you? Leave me alone, I need to get on with my day.” “I am your pain and I am kind of offended that you keep choosing to ignore me.” I hear the answer while a strike in my stomach makes me...

Day 47 – Some sort of conversations with Ephia

D

Some attempts to communicate with my daughter throughout the day. “Good morning little wonder, how are you?” “Enough?” She answers with her hands in the air trying to reach me. We enter the kitchen; we see Thomas sleeping in the armchair. “Look Ephia, it’s Thomas! Thomas!” “Tatasssssss!” she says pointing at him and smiling. Outside, walking hand in...

Day 45 – Rambling sentences about my day

D

I woke up too late. That’s not even a fact anymore, it became a cliché. Made breakfast and got dressed really fast, just because I wanted to get out of the house. We took two mugs from the house and headed towards the bar, preparing to fill them up with coffee and spend a pleasant morning in our garden. Tough luck, because today was St John’s day (patron saint of Florence), which is a public...

Day 41 – The need for ice-cream chased me out of Florence

D

Today, I woke up late and smiled. Today, I watched my daughter slide a hundred times without her getting tired. Today, I forgot about myself and my problems for a minute and laughed at the idea. Today, I went for a walk, late this evening, with D and Ephia and watched her, while getting soaking wet, walking straight into a splash fountain. Today I was bored, angry, happy, amused and all other...

Day 25 – Compromises

D

Today I made a new compromise. Yesterday was also a day of compromises and I am sure tomorrow will be the same. A mute life, crowned with blind compromises. False friends that surround you and use your shoulder blindly until… until a softer and warmer shoulder will come along. Today I was in love much more than yesterday. Maybe I will do the exact thing tomorrow. What about me and you? You don’t...

Day 4 – Internet failiure

D

It seems that Italy found out about my project today and doesn’t like it nor supports it. Today started out as a normal, almost boring day and everything was going exactly as planned until I realized I have no Internet connection. My brain went dead and not because I am addicted to internet (sometimes I like to turn it off just so I can pretend all I have is reading, playing with Ephia or...
