When a stranger asks “Where are you from?”

When a stranger asks “Where are you from?” the question makes me tense and uncomfortable. I am not ashamed of my origin.

Orwell famous essay on “Why I Write“, people involved in this noble, but often ungrateful cause were eager to justify their reasons on what makes them express their souls on paper (and now more often in digital form). I … Continue reading

The consequences of having an opinion

Every person who tends to have a strong opinion someday faces a certain amount of opposition from those, who have a slightly (or sometimes more predominantly) different point of view. As concerns the writers, who express their mind in written, and, therefore, even more “malicious” form, those people have the reputation to attract unlike-minded people … Continue reading

браслет с сердечком

Sunday Secrets come courtesy of PostSecret, a community mail art project where people from all over the world share their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. They’re then mailed to … Continue reading

Indesit Smells

I have a long record of unsuccessful purchases of washing machines. Sometimes I start thinking that it is almost impossible to buy a good washing machine in the UK. I’ve already gathered enough material to write a novel, but, I guess today I will just limit myself to one particular story. After several unfortunate attempts to buy … Continue reading
