I’m still here…

February 15, 2007

No, I didn’t disappear, it is just that I’m very busy with my job (including traveling around…) and with podcasting, which takes quite a lot of my time…

But pretty soon I will post a piece of one of my podcasts, thx to the new audio facilities offered by the WordPress guys!

See you very soon!

Happy New Year!!!

Merry X…omething!

December 25, 2006

Merry X… what??

Season Greetings, Merry Christmas, Merry Hannukkah, Merry Winter Solstice, Merry Yuletide, Merry Saturnalia, Merry Anything!
Just be merry, and of good will. Anything is a good occasion to celebrate and to do good.

Personally, I am an atheist, but I do not particularly resent the above religious celebrations, on the contrary.

What I resent is the wild commercialisation that runs along what used to be a spiritual event.

That may be easy or trivial to say, but I am trying to resist the rush to buy expensive presents and gluttony.

I will stick to simplicity, and try to speak with open heart to whom I love.
In fact I have just put in the earth some small daffodil bulbs that I saved at the end of last spring. In a couple of months my balconies will be alighted with a lot of yellow and green.
Everything dies and come to life again, over and over.

Merry merriness!

Changed some categories names

September 11, 2006

I’ve changed the names of some categories.

So now we have  “Tales”, “Journeys” and “MacFreak” instead of, respectively, “The Word”, “The World” and “Apple”.

Reason for such change is that if you search “The Word” you end up with millions of blogs about the Gospel, new-born christians, retrograde integralisms and the like.  Not at all to my taste.

If you search “The World” you get to geopolitics: very interesting, but not exactly what I had in mind.

“Apple” also is too wide a term… Besides, it is not my intention to talk much about Apple, as there are again millions out there that can do this much better than me.
