  2. The life of a winemaker - sometimes things just don't go the right way...

    Well well, it's been 8 months since my last chapter on these series, so time for some updates, both good and bad news.

    Let's start with the bad news... first, I can't really explain myself how that happened, well I have some ideas but you'll see. Fact is, you know I make both red and white wine.. the white wine is simply fantastic, among the best 3 years I ever had, red wine, on the contrary, is quite bad (at the least compared to my standards); it got excessively dry very soon and ...

    You should know by now that I'm not the kind of dude that it's easily scared, and that my view on the greater picture of life and the Universe as a whole makes me someone who's, let's say, never surprised or easily caught off-guard, so I was expecting the lock down to happen anytime soon, but a lot of people ...
  5. The Dude's thoughts - The power of fear...

    "If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment."

    ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
    Once again I'm quoting Marcus Aurelius, who truly was an ante litteram Dudeist.

    However.. fear is a powerful tool, meant by the nature to prevent us doing stupid things and to encourage our self-preservation... but since it's powerful it's ...
