The new year has just begun and I am already looking forward to next year

While we have embarked at total capacity in the new year, we are already looking forward to it ending. It seems, for now, the faded copy of recent years and facing the challenges that await us in the next few months, already tired even before starting. I have so little enthusiasm that I can’t even look at the photos taken in recent years and decide … Continue reading The new year has just begun and I am already looking forward to next year

Anno Sticky post

Benvenuto! Benvenuto ancora “Anno Nuovo”.

Mentre ci siamo imbarcati a pieno regime nel Anno Nuovo, non vediamo già l’ora che finisca. Sembra, per ora, la copia sbiadita degli ultimi anni e affrontare le sfide che ci attendono nei prossimi mesi, già stancano ancora prima di iniziare. Ho così poco entusiasmo che non riesco neppure a guardare le foto fatte negli ultimi anni e decidermi a pubblicarle. Nell’hard disk ho trovato … Continue reading Benvenuto! Benvenuto ancora “Anno Nuovo”.

Il blocco del lettore: sapete cosa sia?

Avete mai sofferto dell’esperienza che alcuni chiamano il “blocco del lettore”?  Sono stato un lettore instancabile per decenni, adesso la concentrazione su un libro mi dura mezzo minuto, mi stanco, non mi viene voglia di leggere.  Dura da alcuni anni e mi sento indifeso davanti a tale due anni e mi sento come se qualcosa mi sia morto dentro. Quando ero un ragazzino ed avevo … Continue reading Il blocco del lettore: sapete cosa sia?

Le promesse per il nuovo anno ci devono riportare in primo piano l’importanza della solidarietà. Tra le persone, tra le generazioni, tra le comunità.

by Massimo Usai Solitamente, appena il Big Ben ha terminato il suo suono finale alle 12.01 del 1 ° gennaio, dovunque guardi sui social media o sui classici giornali, in classiche interviste, quello che leggo è un flusso interminabile di promesse per l’anno che sta per iniziare. Quest’anno, in questi primi dieci giorni, è un fiume in piena di sentimenti anti-risoluzione. Dì no alle diete, … Continue reading Le promesse per il nuovo anno ci devono riportare in primo piano l’importanza della solidarietà. Tra le persone, tra le generazioni, tra le comunità.

Who has always had something to say ? Not me.

By Massimo Usai As I’ve written somewhere else in the past, perhaps during another lifetime, “you don’t always have something to say. You can’t always say something. In the last week, I didn’t have much to say, but the little I had to say, I couldn’t even write it on my blog.” But from today, I am again in the company of words, feelings, and … Continue reading Who has always had something to say ? Not me.

Looking for my creative photography mojo

by Massimo Usai I learned about 2021 a few days ago and reflected on my year of photography. I want to reassure myself that, at least photographically, 2022 will be an excellent year for the last year was not. To make sure this happens to me, my primary commitment these days is to focus on finding your creative mojo (or catching it up). It is … Continue reading Looking for my creative photography mojo

Happy New Year with the best movies of 2021

By Massimo Usai In a year dominated once again by the pandemic, books, music, and movies occupied our days the most.

The Top 20 of the Year 2021

By Massimo Usai Twenty records that in 2021 were excellent company. Placed in order of preference, they create, in fact, a musical chart of my year that has just passed. Between lockdowns. First outings among the people. A year in which I once again crossed a border. I spent a year in a city where grey and rain give a strange character to the local … Continue reading The Top 20 of the Year 2021

1982: the year of the World Cup for Italy that changed for better many things in our lives

By Massimo Usai It’s 1982, and I still haven’t had anything so transcendental in my life.  I was still studying, no solo travel worldwide, and summer had just begun. July had arrived a few days before, but that heat, typical of July, had been in the air for two or three months now. I had taken my first swim in the sea in April that … Continue reading 1982: the year of the World Cup for Italy that changed for better many things in our lives
