There is a light at the end of the tunnel ?
By Massimo Usai
We have seen Army trucks bring bodies to cremate away from cities.
There was no longer any place in the crematoriums in the area.
Who would have thought in his life to see such a thing?
In Europe? In Italy?
It was known that sooner or later, such a thing would happen but you are not prepared when it happens. It seems to be part of a Sci-fi movie.
But wasn’t a movie.
It is also distressing to realize that if you get any disease and you need the hospital, they will reject you, living you with more fear.
You can’t go to meet friends, the family is far away and spread in the world.
Borders are closed like every country is at war to each other.
You have to live with the idea that if a family member got the virus or anything else, you have to leave him alone. Even if he were on the verge of death.
Our life changed in an instant, just between February and March. And who knows how long this feeling of fear and tension will last?
Hoping there may be a light at the end of the tunnel.
I missed my loved ones, and I still miss them, and I know that when I see them again, I will be afraid to hug them.
The video calls with them, with hours and hours of video chat but you feel are not enough.
I would like to wish you a good day now that it seems that life in Europe is slowly recovering, but is it possible?
In the rest of the world, the virus is doing more harm than it did in Europe.
We are not even sure that the dead are truly officially declared.
Them economical and health situations not up to our European standards and so many countries are under a dictator.
People who prefer not to show the real numbers of infections and deaths to keep the population, not in a panic, does not bode well for the final number of victims.
Writing on the blog, while everything was creaking around was a challenging undertaking.
Still, it is the only foothold I had to go on, which made me wake up early, and which injected me with adrenaline.
Today I went out, some shopping, I took the Underground, and I took a coffee in a bar, and it all seems over.
You go out into the street, and nothing seems to have happened.
Still, I have a feeling of fear. I still feel that shiver when someone passes me by.
I put on my mask and try to face the world. I hope I am still capable of it.

by Massimo Usai Mi piace scattare foto di cortecce d’alberi, tronchi particolarmente belli se ne vedono parecchi nei parchi o nei boschi prossimi alla città, e potrei anche dare loro una piccola pacca mentre passo, un po’ come si fa con le persone anziane per sentire la consistenza della loro pelle. Non sono l’unico a […]
By Massimo Usai Quando I tempi si allargano, quando gli spazi si aprono, quando le restrizioni cadono, ci si presentano cose simili davanti agli occhi. Dove una volta si svolgevano avvenimenti storici e non di seconda importanza, ora passaggio con la mia macchina fotografica alla ricerca dell’angolo giusto, del colore perfetto. Nella linea dove i […]
By Massimo Usai Ci sono parole che usiamo in maniera sistematica e che non sappiamo piu’ neppure il significato che essenzialmente hanno. In particolare sentiamo e leggiamo mille volte al giorno queste seguenti parole: “Potrebbe”, “vorrebbe” e “dovrebbe” . Esse sono per il sottoscritto il triumvirato semantico della disillusione. Purtroppo sono la conseguenza dei tempi […]
By Massimo Usai Yesterday was a football tournament final, nothing special. But for the journalists of this junk press, it’s was like life or death. What these tabloids have been writing in the last few days was dangerous. Especially knowing well that their readers never read beyond a headline. They are dangerous idiots, and with […]

By Massimo Usai Gli Europei di calcio, l’estate al mare (o in Montagna), la corsa agli ultimi vaccini, le serate in riva al mare con un drink in mano oppure quella in terrazza leggendo un libro… il Tour de France e le Olimpiadi che stanno per arrivare. Insomma, la vita pare riprendere sostanza e forma […]
