29th February: leap year day

29thfeb

The famous popular proverb says: bisetile anno fatesta year .. will it be so? Regardless of beliefs and superstitions, 2020 began with one of the most perilous epidemics of recent decades. In addition, fires in Australia destroyed several hectares of land in early December.
How will a person born on February 29th celebrate his birthday? I imagine you celebrate it the day before (February 28), as it happens for name days. Today, moreover, it is also the world day of rare diseases .. as if this theme was linked to the rarity of this day.

February is also generally one of the coldest months of the year together with January. In March, although it is called crazy, it is almost always a warmer month. But this year, February was also a very hot month for many nations due to strange weather conditions.

Daydreaming

daydreamDaydreaming is always dangerous because it can break our biggest hopes.

In fact, a good dreamer must never reach obsession otherwise he ends up in hopeless despair.

Our dreams are the fruit of our hopes often, even those that are the last to die, but often it is convenient to dream in moderation, almost with virtue so as not to be mocked.

The most illusory dreams are often those where feelings are present but it often happens to also find illusory dreams of one’s work success.

I remind you that this year the transmissions of the new episodes of the peanuts have begun, which are broadcast on Apple TV.

I remember when I watched peanuts on TV, simple and often silent cartoons, with a profound and also very interpretative meaning.

 

 

 

Goodbye November [2019]

November is over, and it’s about to begin December. What is the saddest month of the year? Probably for many it is November. Instead December and January are months of holidays and February is a month of preparation for the spring of 21st March.

In November the leaves of the trees are red, the cold becomes more intense and people stuff themselves with coats. In our mind, the idea that the current year is coming to an end comes into our mind.

In the United States in November there is a Thanksgiving Day, which is considered a very important party. Instead in the other western countries there is the party of November 1 (all saints days) which however is considered a sad recurrence because it is used as commemoration of the dead, that happens just the following day.

Although November is for many the excellence month of autumn, many consider it as a month of reconciliation with the nature. The Danish Philosopher Kierekegaard wrote:

“In autumn everything reminds us of twilight, – and yet, it seems to me the most beautiful season: he wanted the sky then, when I will live my twilight, that there must be someone who then loves me as I loved the autumn.”
