Our libraries: how to choose books

littlelibrary
Small library typical of public places or parks.

How many books do we read? Quantity is probably important but not everything. Quality is often fundamental, and choosing your book to suit your tastes and attitudes is the best way to create a small library of culture.

 

We often read without understanding because they are full of thoughts in our heads or because we don’t read often. It also depends on the genre of books: the most difficult are the intricate stories full of characters (mystery and novels) but also treatises on Philosophy.

If your intent is to have fun and not be too focused on the logic of the book, take a leisure book, I am convinced that the quality of the reading is usually more important than the content.

The length of the book is relative. If the book is very exciting we would like the book to never end. Instead some people prefer to read more books but short ones.
A book that has captured us represents a piece of our soul to be kept both in the library of books and in the library of one’s mind.

🎃 Halloween 2019

PIC Gabriele Romano – Halloween 2019

While in the Anglo-Saxon world, halloween is celebrated and the pumpkins appear everywhere in the Latin Catholic world, this custom is imitated wearing costumes. I am a little over 30 years old and I remember that in Italy people began to celebrate this event at the beginning of the 2000s, when TV – with American films and cartoons – brought the trick or treat event to people’s homes. Cartoons have been the main influence.

Cartoons (like the simpson) were the main factors that influenced the Catholic world. It is no coincidence that three episodes dedicated to the Simpsons were broadcast on the mediaset ITALIA1 channel.

Today, however, there are many who contest the Anglo-Saxon custom by calling it opposite to the Christian-Catholic culture as well as opposed to the national tradition. However, I believe that with the passing of the years the aversion towards Halloween will diminish, giving it the main party of the disguise. In the last decade in fact the carnival has lost a lot of popularity, especially in the adult public.

🎵 Lewis Capaldi – Bruises

 

LYRIC

Counting days, counting days
Since my love up and got lost on me
And every breath that I’ve been takin’
Since you left feels like a waste on me
I’ve been holding on to hope
That you’ll come back when you can find some peace
‘Cause every word that I’ve heard spoken
Since you left feels like a hollow street
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold ya
You’d keep my head from going under
Maybe I, maybe I’m just being blinded
By the brighter side
Of what we had because it’s over
Well there must be something in the tide
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
It’s your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
And I’m tired of being so exhausted
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Even though I’m nothing to you now
Even though I’m nothing to you now
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
We couldn’t turn around
‘Til we were upside down
I’ll be the bad guy now
But no, I ain’t too proud
I couldn’t be there
Even when I try
You don’t believe it
We do this every time
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
Let go
I got a feeling that it’s time to let go
I say so
I knew that this was doomed from the get-go
You thought that it was special, special
But it was just the sex though, the sex though
And I still hear the echoes (the echoes)
I got a feeling that it’s time to let it go
Let it go
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
Maybe you don’t understand what I’m going through
It’s only me, what you got to lose?
Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?
It’s only me, let it go
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
