”Whatever ” you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Monica dedicated this sentence to me as one of her many encouragement.
Audacity and I are not even distant relatives and you will tell me “yet you had a lot of courage to participate.”

True! In fact, thank you very much Il Perdilibri for giving this opportunity and for accepting me.

I suggest you also read the stories of past editions which are really very interesting.

Regarding the 2021 edition, in addition to Il Perdilibri, I also thank the other participants who supported me, and even endured me, although they are much better: I had the opportunity to broaden the horizons of knowledge but also of reflection, to learn, and especially to read BEAUTIFUL things.

Then, if you like, there is also mySunset” 

One hundred and seventy-fourth day of captivity, I am writing only now, after my damned jailer has repeatedly prevented me.
Yet I had deluded myself into a loosening of retaliation after my last escape attempt, at the moment when I could taste the food today.
I hadn’t eaten like this since the early days, when the coward still allowed me to go out and walk.
At the first spoonful I felt the desire to bite: an unexpected desire to eat that I didn’t let go.
It was extremely satisfying after all this time to be able to decide to do something with a simple impulse.
When you lose your freedom, nothing is taken for granted. Not even the brief sleep I fell into after devouring everything I could.
But now I wonder what induced the coward to let me seize these moments and I fear he intends to strike me.
I am so tired of feeling like a prey, of feeling totally vulnerable, of annihilating my strength by dint of defending myself.
With my fingers I touch the scar, in the braille writing that I invented I decided to read the word alive, I have been doing it since the day I thanked for those points that put my life back together as well as my skin.
But now the challenge has shifted to the psychological level: my body is almost completely atrophied, but my mind is not.
He knows it well and has honed his perfidy.
Every time I tried to escape, he recaptured me and locked me up in a worse condition than the previous one. Exactly like a noose, but leaving me the breath to allow the suffering to manifest itself in all its devastating repertoire.
Today I was winning until he came back: I feel him so much that I can see the bright red of his fire like a November sunset that sets the sky on fire.
I understood: the time of the night has come.
The time has come when that cowardly carcinoma will swallow my light.

I am delighted to have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award and extend my thanks to Jaya from Nin Chronicles for this amazing nomination!
Jaya is a wonderful poet so don’t miss the chance to explore the magic that her deep words inspire.
I love her poems!
Dear Jaya I am really grateful and happy for the luck I had the day I “met” you.

it is given to bloggers by bloggers, who in turn pass it on.
The Award promotes community and shows us just how far one little thing can go as each nominee shares the love further.


  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include the link to their site.

  2. Post the award banner somewhere on your blog.

  3. Share the reason why you started your blog.

  4. Share two pieces of advice that could benefit new bloggers.

  5. Nominate a maximum of fifteen bloggers.

  6. Tell your nomimees about your award post so they can partecipate!

well, simply because who loves me encouraged me to fight my fear and not to be ashamed of sharing what I always loved: writing.
Also considering that I like socializing since ages ago when the only way was through paper letters by mail …

to tell the truth I don’t think to be able to give advices, but maybe, if you allow me, I can tell that on my opinion the most important thing is be yourself.
No matter if you aren’t perfect.
No matter if you have faults: flaws are the features that make you different from others.
Because no one else is like you.

And then … enjoy! Have fun!
Live life in full, don’t loose anything and share laughing
