KEEP CALM AND GO … BOOKCROSSING
Keep calm and go… bookcrossing is the new creation by Keep calm and go volunteering team.
In the picture their box inaugurated on Monday 28 March, isn’t it delicious?
It is located in the Cairoli Park, in via del Piave, in Belluno.
If one day maybe you find yourself in the area …
What do you think of bookcrossing?
Have you ever donated or collected books?
Speaking of the guys from Keep calm and go volunteering, on the subject of books, Lorenzo gave me a new precious advice!
Un altro giro di giostra by Tiziano Terzani.
Do you know him?
I really hope to read it soon: Lorenzo particularly emphasizes the considerations regarding coffee and the way it is drunk while we work, a sign of a frenetic society.
I found this excerpt:
With the streets populating immediately after dawn, New York lost its enchanted air to my eyes and at times it appeared to me as a monstrous jumble of many desperate people, each one running after some dream of sad wealth or miserable happiness. By eight, Fifth Avenue, south of Central Park, a stone’s throw from my house, was already full of people. Whiffs of airport perfumes filled my nose at every woman who, running with the usual breakfast packet in hand, brushed past me to enter one of the skyscrapers. What a way to start a day! I was thinking of the Florentines who, upon entering the Petrarca Bar in Porta Romana, do not simply order a “coffee”, but a “high” coffee, or a “macchiato” one in a “glass” or in a “cup,” a creamy cappuccino without foam or «A heart of coffee in glass» and I thought of the young Francesco who pays attention to everyone’s tastes. For most in New York, the coffee is an acid soup placed in a paper cup with a plastic pacifier-shaped lid to be able to sip it, still hot. Walking.
This is surely linked also to the famous “first coffee of the day” and to the favorite way of having breakfast we were talking about.
The cup in the photo below, on the other hand, has nothing to do with breakfast, it is taken from: The Duke, another precious tip from Lorenzo, this time cinematic.
Do you agree this is a very sweet image?
Do you already know this movie?
And what would you recommend to Lorenzo and the volunteers?
