Once upon a September

Here again with another monthly “best of”. Hard to believe the year is flowing away so fast! I have no doubts about the highlight for this month: my sister Irene came to Galway. She is going to stay with me for 6 weeks, while attending an English language course. I started perceiving a mix of…

Monday blues

You know those days when you walk in the streets and the sun seems only be shining to cast shadows over things? Those days when you hope somebody will notice that something is wrong and decide to sacrifice their day for you; but at the same time you really hope to pass unnoticed to the…

Seaweed harvest

Some people go to the gym, others take meditation courses, or fill in their mindfulness journals; some people go to aquariums, others travel looking for dream beaches.  I walk the Galway prom, a path of about 3 km, from the Claddagh to Blackrock.   Ci sono persone che vanno in palestra, altre che fanno corsi…

My 2016 resolutions

Too late for the new year’s resolutions? No, because my list is different! First of all, I believe in it! This time I really believe in my list, and that’s a good start.

Bye 2015 – Hello 2016!

Christmas holidays flew so fast this year. Family dinners, friends, relatives, my cat… but I found a little space to think of what 2015 has been for me.

For example, I love creating little pockets to put on the mug-hugger’s plain woolly surface. So now I’m going to suggest 3 ways in which you can enjoy these little…

Scaretails

It seems that my cats are quite unlucky with their tails. I start with a disclaimer: the account of facts I’m going to give could sound a bit rough to some of you, or funny to others. It depends on the points of view and on your guts. It all began when something happened to…

Dissatisfaction vs. Satisfaction: a personal challenge

Ten days ago Moonstone was officially born. I’d like to try and explain my feelings at that very moment, but to do so I need to let you know what happened at the beginning. Everyone has a dream, but no one ever consciounsly realizes when it starts to sparkle. Sometimes one doesn’t even know what the…

Who am I?

Comunque sia, la domanda più semplice e complicata di tutte è sempre la stessa: ma tu chi sei?

Perciò, ma io chi sono?
