I teach English Literature and I very much enjoy my field of work. I also enjoy writing about the topics I deal with in my class lessons, but writing in general is an activity that enriches me deeply as it allows me to stop and ponder on various issues taking due time to express my thoughts thoroughly and carefully. Blogging, then, gives me the opportunity to look at life, and not only literature or art, at a slower pace to drink in all its beauty. Insegno inglese in un liceo linguistico e lo faccio con grande entusiasmo e piacere. Mi diverto anche a preparare dispense per i miei studenti, ma la scrittura in generale mi appassiona perché mi consente di riflettere su svariati argomenti prendendomi il tempo necessario per analizzarli ed esprimerli con cura. Tenere un blog, dunque, mi offre la possibilità di osservare la vita, e non solo la letteratura o l’arte in genere, con uno sguardo più attento per coglierne tutta la bellezza.
