KEEP CALM AND … ROLLER SKATING!

KEEP CALM AND … ROLLER SKATING!

Keep calm and… roller skating!
Yes: this time the keep calm is on wheels!

And it’s not the rusty ones I’m missing, luckily for you.

But not even the wheels of the experiments that Eleonora and I recently, by a curious coincidence, we told each other in these comments

Keep Calm wheels are spectacular and belong to the Victoria Alba Asd skating quartet.

Victoria Alba is an association of about 100 members, ranging from 5-year-olds to adults who are passionate about skating. They train in Alba in the province of Cuneo and participate in events and competitions at the provincial, regional and national level.

I got to know Victoria Alba after participating in the Fisr regional championship in Novara where the Keep Calm girls got fifth place in the National Division Quartets category with an exhibition inspired by the film “The greatest showman” … just to stay on the musical theme. 

Their names are Benedetta, Michela, Sara and Sophie and they are between 14 and 16 years old.

Obviously I could not contact them to ask how the choice of the name Keep Calm was born.

Here is their answer:
The choice of this name did not happen by chance, on the contrary, as we know the translation of this short construct is “stay calm.” We as a team have decided to make it personal, reminding us that we have all the skills to face our seasonal competitions head-on, without being overwhelmed by uncertainty or inner turmoil. Because after all we ourselves have decided to undertake this path which in a certain sense has helped us to mature and grow as people who are in control of themselves.

I would say that they have very clear ideas and that they deserve my sincere applause.

Come on girls! My cheering is all for you!

In case you want to follow the Keep Calm quartet, as well as the other athletes, you can find them both on the Facebook page and on the Instagram profile

Have you ever tried to skate?

I am sure you will tell me fantastic performances.

The roller skates with which I completely “grated” my forearm in second grade were more or less like the ones in this photo.

Don’t laugh too much though!

BELLUNO SOLIDARITY ON AIR

BELLUNO SOLIDARITY ON AIR

ANG in Radio #morethanbefore Belluno Solidarity on Air is the 100% Belluno Web Radio dedicated to solidarity thanks to funds from the National Youth Agency.

Belluno Solidarity On Air is therefore the voice of the guys from the Keep Calm & Go Volunteering project who were kind enough to host me in one of their podcasts!

In case you want to listen to us, you can find the podcast in the first comment.

Listening to my voice again I wonder how those who hear it perennially can bear me laughing

However, it seems that the feeling that leads to disowning or almost despising one’s own voice is quite widespread, and reading the causes explained by Focus I discovered a nice tweet by Giuliano Sangiorgi from Negramaro who tells how the first few times he didn’t even recognize himself and I was a little relieved.

On the other hand, the importance of hearing the volunteers explain their project and tell about the whole series of initiatives and activities they carry out is undoubted.

I am so very happy with this experience.

For this I thank them warmly for how they welcomed me and for the friendship that grows under the sign of our Keep Calm.

From their Committee of Understanding a fantastic understanding was born which has One more cup of coffee as its soundtrack  and an exchange of interesting and valuable tips as a common thread.

In reiterating the esteem I have for them, I once again congratulate them on their work.

To Ariela, Edisona, Hamudi, Lorenzo, Mehdi, Sophie, Veronica I dedicate:

There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.
