February, Something New

I still have quite a few of the Bloganuary prompts to work my way through, but the ones I haven’t done are those that I was struggling to write something about, so I’m not sure that I will be able to. I’ll try to finish the prompts that I have in draft form, there are…

Books – Bloganuary Prompt 10

I am a voracious reader, I have been since I first learnt how to read, with the old-fashioned “Dick and Jane” books. I, as little Sara Crewe’s father said in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s A Little Princess, “…she gobbles them up as if she were a little wolf instead of a little girl. She is always…

Gifts – Bloganuary Prompt 9

I think that one of my most memorable gifts was the last one from my mother. My little family went to New Mexico to visit her for Christmas 2015, we were there for almost two weeks. She gave me this silver necklace in a velvet box, I am wearing it in this photo from last…

Travel – Bloganuary Prompt 14

Here in Bologna, in Via dell’Indipendenza…

I speak two languages, English mother-tongue and Italian. I can write fairly well in Italian, the grammar and syntax are a bit off though. I am a self-taught Italian speaker, which works only because I actually live in the country itself. I doubt that I would have learnt much more than the very Tarzan level…

Bloganuary 6 – Why Do You Write?

I write to let out all the thoughts that are constantly running around in my head. I am a lazy writer, I write in my head but the words rarely make it to being written down. I have this almost constant flow of words and thoughts, most of them worries or just questions, that sometimes…

What Is My Earliest Memory – Bloganuary Prompt 3

My earliest memory was in my family home in Illinois, walking on the carpet (wall to wall, of course) towards my father who was sitting on the couch, looking back at me. I was in the dining room area, going towards the front living room, the sofa was on my right with the back towards…
