Opening credits

Here we go!

It took me a lot, almost one year from the moment when I said “Uhmmm I should really start a blog”, to finally ‘clic’ and do it.

I intend to write (more or less regularly, we will see)  about what passionates me: my work combining storytelling and education; and stories of all sorts: stories I collect from journeys, people and places I meet.

And books, and movies, and games, and all things that bring me inspiration, excitement, passion.

To say nothing of the cat.

Which, by the way, is this one

named Freddy, 4 years old. He followed me from Viterbo, Italy to Prague, Czech Republic. And he is sleeping right now.

What NOT

I will not write about the things that upset or annoy me. For those (and they are many!), I already have facebook or my live, real-life rants. This will stay a space for positive inspiration and good vibes.

Edit: yes, but why the title for this blog? 

To Say Nothing of the Dog: or, How We Found the Bishop’s Bird Stump at Last is a 1997 comic science fiction novel by Connie Willis. It’s about time travel (but I confess, I haven’t read it).
The book’s title is inspired by the subtitle of an 1889 classic work by Jerome K. Jerome’s “Three Men in a Boat, To Say Nothing of the Dog.”

I absolutely loved the chain of references and the topic. The only problem was that I don’t have a dog.

The brilliant suggestion was given to me by Andrea Papi on facebook. Big praise!

    1. yeah, my demons were stopping me too for a long long time! Mainly the demons of lazyness and fear of judgement. They are still there but I enjoy NOT listening to them ;)
