Vitae Summa Brevis Spem nos Vetat Incohare Longam
(“Il breve passaggio della vita ci proibisce di bramarne una più lunga” – Orazio)

Il pianto ed il sorriso, amor e desio e odio poco tempo dureran:
Dopo il varcar la porta in noi  più alcun senso avran.
Il tempo del vino e delle rose poco tempo durerà:
Da un brumoso sogno
La nostra via per un momento salirà,
E poi in un sogno si chiuderà.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful translation, Gian.
    Hope you are managing to survive Coronavirus 2021 in Italy! 🙂

    1. Thanks Saki,
      yes I am surviving Coronavirus. I caught it in March 2020 in a light form (no hospital or oxygen needed) and I still have antibodies so I do not need vaccination at all.

  2. Hi Anna,
    what I mean is that I caught a flu that everyone names “Coronavirus”. In the past I caught flus (even when I was much younger) and some of them were much heavier than that of 2020. In the past I never underwent blood tests or similar after the flu ended because nobody was doing it and it was and it is still common sense to claim there is a flu wave every year. My opinion is that this “Coronavirus” is not a “natural” flu but an “engineered” one that has brought heavier symptoms and that many people died because of wrong medical procedures in the hospitals. The main reason to spread such a flu was what they call “Great Reset” (at economic, financial and social level) and believe me this is not a conspiracy theory because everything is happening in front of us, we can see it with our own eyes.
    What I did not mention in my previous message is that, antibodies or not, I will never take a jab and nobody can have my decision changed.

  3. Hi Gian, thank you for your kind answer. Yes I think it’s a flu caused to mostly sick old people having a not strong inmune system caused by lack of healthy food, low vitamins, sunlight, clean fresh air etc Weren’t the most of the dead patients living in the industrial north of Italy. A lot of air pollution and not much sunlight.
    I recenlty read in Pubmed that the medicine Ivermectine can help and the use of vitamin D instead of the ‘ vaccins’. It’s true as you write that the doctors never used to test you for having a common flu. Malpractice in the past?
    Greetings
