In Italian the day after Easter is called โ€œLunedรฌ dell'Angeloโ€ that literally means โ€œMonday's angelโ€.

It is also known as โ€œPasquettaโ€ a noun that derives from โ€œPasquaโ€ (Easter).

Usually during this day people spend time going out with friends and families.

Traditional activities consist in doing a trip or a picnic.

It's Easter. ๐Ÿฅš

After one year we're still in a red zone here in Milan area.

Many things have happened during the last 12 months. Lockdown, open, close, first wave, second wave, third wave...

We've learned many things about social distance, viruses & vaccines.

We've learned how to stay close with others even being far away from our relatives, friends and colleagues.

We've used technologies like never before.

We hated, we loved.

And we are still here, alive.

Thanks.

It's Sunday morning and a partially sunny day.

It sounds good.

I recently read the below article about pseudo-anonymity on A blog of yet another quirky guy out there:

It may seem to be banal, but I agree with both of them.

I have an About page here on the blog but it is very short, because I prefer to focus on writing than promoting myself.

Lately social networks seems to bore me, sometimes I even feel nervous for their never ending fighting discussions.

Socials are a paradise for wannabe people, they can have an audience that satisfy their thirst of likes and followers.

On this blog I can discuss, write down my thoughts and express myself with a partial anonymity.

I do not feel the need to be on the stage.

I just want to do what I want to do.

I really liked the above short post, because it reminds me I had the same problems with blogging in the past.

I'm experimenting new ways of using this microblog, trying to share and express myself more and more.

In fact, I'm not using social networks so much. For this reason this microblog is a great way to post my thoughts.

I would really like to have a Search My Site instance able to crawl blogs on read.write.as.

It would be great to search for new content from interesting public blogs hosted on Write.as platform.

There are many streaming platforms out there. ๐Ÿ“บ Too many, really. Broadcasters and film majors are trying to launch their premium streaming services in order to have new ways to generate income.

Personally I do not have much enough time to watch more than one or two episodes each day of my favourite series.

Moreover, many of the series offered on those platforms are not so good (poor quality and with already seen scripts).

It seems to me that content is booming, but quality is downsizing.
