Little by little we get closer, by an uphill road, towards the new website.
From today we have the new blog, here in front of you.
It is a strange sensation, like moving in a bigger and nicer house but underneath it all thinking that it was better before.
I have an immense array of new instruments, which I didn’t have before, and it all looks too much to me!
I can post pictures and, eventually, you can click on it to see a larger format, like this image below here (an image you may have seen in the past, taken in South Africa with me always ready to beam up into space…), or even, if I want to show you a website I like, I can simply do this.
This really modest blog, after all, has existed since 2003. Thanks to my previous assistant AG which back then (more or less when internet was still a fossil and modems where emitting screeching sounds before connecting <or maybe not>) I asked him to have on my site, which already existed from the year 2000, a place where I could upload, which was more for the clients, my works. Alessio told me: let’s make a blog! “a blog?!?!” I replied “what is that?!?!” (in milanese dialect).
He then explained it to me, and I started this small useless adventure which between one thing and another made me produce, to be exact, 756 posts.
I am very happy to have done so, it is a diary of a thousand travels, thousand meetings, thousand adventures and misadventures. Honestly I am above all happy to have done it for myself; and with this spirit, the one of an adolescent who is writing in a secret diary secured by a tin lock, I keep on writing with much pleasure, the pleasure with which I am able to turn around and live again what I have experienced.
In the “far far away” 2003 the blog had a primitive technology, for a long time I couldn’t and didn’t want comments to be made, the photographs couldn’t be enlarged, no links could be embedded in the words: now we have that kind of technology, and they are all here, in this new blog.
I would say we have to celebrate all this in a way that it only seems right:
By writing a lot of posts!
Next week, from Monday and for the whole week, I will be writing one post per day
