England and St George!” A little history on St George’s cross Legend has … Read more

The value of respect in my opinion

The value of respect in my opinion

While it may seem fairly simple to define what respect means, it really isn’t. This consideration is due to the fact that I realized that many people think they know what respect is but I got the very impression that they do not. I am also quite convinced that you agree with me because you too are convinced that you know what respect is and that this is less and … Read more

My brief reflection on life

You never stop learning in life even though eventually people have a tendency to always fall back on the same mistakes.

Be the change you want to see happen in the world

We are often trapped in the awareness of ourselves as the only central point in the universe. Although self-improvement as an individual is a necessary prerequisite, according to this phrase attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, it is not enough. Be the change you want to see happen in the world.

The village idiot, a story with a moral

The village idiot, a story with a moral

In every village or small town, there is always one person who is singled out by others as the village idiot. This figure has become exemplary and rhetorical. Particularly in the country where I live, one can hardly come across anyone who has not called someone else a village idiot. I am therefore going to tell you in my own way about a popular legend whose true origin we do … Read more

The seven vices or deadly sins - a reflection

The seven vices or deadly sins – a reflection

It occurred to me to write this reflection because a short time ago, I learned of the existence in my country of the national day dedicated to Dante Alighieri. He was an Italian writer, poet and politician who was born in Florence in 1265 and died in Ravenna in September 1321.

Memories of youth, paranormal, sรฉances, strange stories

Memories of youth, the paranormal, sรฉances, strange stories. With this jumble of words I want to introduce you to some of my memories which, who knows why, have come back to me today and from one of them others have come and then others again, in an avalanche. The first memory that came to mind was many years ago, when I was a young girl, 15-16 years old or so. … Read more

The power of True Love

The power of True Love

There almost always comes a time in life when one wonders about the true meaning of true love. The answer to the questions that come to mind with age is not the easiest. There are those who define love according to a simple evolutionary theory and those who instead invest this feeling with a purely spiritual and transcendental meaning. Those who support the first hypothesis are usually convinced that love … Read more

Affective dependence, a reflection

Affective dependence, a reflection

Sooner or later, I think most people have wondered whether they are suffering from so-called ’emotional dependency’. If you’ve reached the point where you found this article, you’re probably wondering that yourself. Apparently, emotional dependency is not on the list of behavioural disorders in my country (Italy). Although perhaps it would be better to say that it is not listed at the moment. I think it is important to understand … Read more

Hope, my personal reflection

Hope, my personal reflection

Hope is defined by many as one of the most powerful engines capable of moving human beings in a certain direction. In a way, it is the key to our dreams and has sometimes proved decisive in the progress of humanity. Today, after a long time, I am going to offer you my thoughts on this hopeful expectation that characterises most of humanity in an extraordinarily peculiar way. In the … Read more
