Pessimistic in Toscana, Italia
“I am large, I contain multitudes" // Walt Whitman.
I'm a bookaholic. One of my mottos is: so little time and so many books to read! I'm curious. I'd like to know a little bit of everything. Behind everything there is History. And History makes knowledge. And knowledge will set us free.
One of my many dreams is to become a gourmet; so far I can only say that I love to cook and I really love a good bottle of wine. Red or white it depends on the dish. And on my mood.
I like music; Soft Rock, Pop Rock, Easy Listening, Swing, Adult Contemporary... Oldies music from the 40s and 70/80. I listen very willingly to Country Music, Jazz, Fado, Mexicana, Bossa Nova, Symphonic and from 2011 I cultivate a passion for Opera.
In a nutshell… I’m Instinctive, exuberant, ironic ... privately romantic and sportingly pessimistic. Highly allergic to incoherence, ignorance and hubris. Don't try me, I got a trenchant inner side...
Lipstickaholic and polishaholic.
I love photography but I'm not a photographer, I just like to capture visual memories. Religiously atheist, spiritually and scientifically agnostic.
