"What matters in life is not what happens but what you remember and how you remember." Gabriel Garcia Marquez

 Dear friends, 2019 was a particular year that I would hardly forget if I come to  negative thinking.  The bicycle accident for which to cure my neck and arm I did not work bringing me serious problems both economic and in health, or some very close friends of my, that for vain and power avidity, have done me wrong.
 But fortunately I clearly remember the beautiful things even if some with great difficulties and thanks to those who has faith in me, have succeeded: my personal at the MAC, the entry into my life of special people both in work and in friendship, my work at the  Casa Di Stefano Boschi Museum, the trip of my son in India and his return to university and many other smaller but very significant things.
 I learned in life that the important thing is not to remember facts but how to remember them.  Sometimes we forget huge happenings in our lives to instead bring to mind a purchase of a book or a look of a cat at a particular moment.  All this, however, only counts if we live life with joy in our hearts, with a desire for improvement.  To look at the small things of everyday life with amazement, to say a kind word to those who need it, to walk with a high head conscious that we have not intentionally brought unhappiness to someone.
 I chose this instant picture shot here in Berlin to keep the memory of this 2019 with a smile. 
 I hope that 2020 is full of special moments, wishing that you will arrive at the end of the year happy to have completed another life cycle with many beautiful memories.
 A smile, a hug with all my heart, for a 2020 all round of beautiful goals.
“Ciò che conta nella vita non è ciò che ti accade ma ciò che ricordi e come lo ricordi.” Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Cari amici, Il 2019 è stato un anno che difficilmente potrei dimenticare se dovesse pensare in negativo. L’incidente in bicicletta   che per curarmi non ho lavorato portandomi seri problemi sia economici che di salute (e mi devo ancora operare il braccio), le delusioni di amici che avevo nel profondo del mio cuore e che per invidia e fame di potere mi hanno fatto dei torti.
Ma per fortuna mi ricordo nitidamente le cose belle anche se alcune con grandi difficoltà che  grazie a chi ha avuto fiducia in me, si sono potuto verificare: la mia personale al M.A.C, l’entrata nella mia vita di persone molto speciali in ambito lavorativo e nel l’amicizia, un mio lavoro al Museo Casa Di Stefano Boschi, il viaggio di
mio figlio in India e il suo ritorno con iscrizione all’università e tante tante altre cose più piccole ma significative.
Ho imparato nella vita che l’importante non è ricordarsi le cose ma come ricordarle. Talvolta dimentichiamo eventi immensi nella nostra vita per portare nella memoria invece un acquisto di un libro o uno sguardo di un gatto in un momento particolare. Tutto questo però conta soltanto se la vita la viviamo con gioia nel cuore, con desiderio di migliorare. Di guardare le piccole cose del quotidiano con stupore, di dire una parola gentile a chi ne ha bisogno, di camminare a testa alta certi che non abbiamo fatto del male volutamente a qualcuno.
Ho scelto questa fototessera che ho appena fatta qui a Berlino, come il viso che voglio ricordare di questo 2019.

Vi auguro che il 2020 sia pieno di momenti speciali, perché tu arrivi alla fine dell’anno felice di aver compiuto un altro ciclo di vita con tanti bei ricordi.
Un sorriso, un abbraccio con tutto il mio cuore, per un 2020 tondi di bei traguardi.
