WIGS [verses]

masks veiled from themselves
they touch borders outside of reason

like eyes without a face
how you sound without a creator

masks without a synonym
verging on the direction of the senses

modesty of a sex never exposed
grace of a dream never imagined

Terracina (Lazio) – PHOTO October 2021


Terracina is a very large town on the coast of Latina. It has a very long promenade with wide sidewalks and cycle paths next to the road, where people walk or jog. I was there in October and although it was already autumn there were many people walking along the promenade. The town is one of the mildest in Lazio, and perhaps also in southern Italy (excluding the islands). The town is located more close to Naples than to Rome and in fact it is affected by the Neapolitan influence.

Bitcoins arrive in Walmart stores! From today it will be possible to exchange crypto directly in ATMs

Bloomberg broke the news that Walmart offers the ability to buy Bitcoin in-store. A further impetus to the most well-known cryptocurrency in a moment of important growth in value, a few hours from the all-time high. That said, buying Bitcoin at ATMs is certainly not the cheapest, in fact, as Cointelegraph reports: “Bitcoin ATMs have an 11% surcharge, consisting of a 4% commission choice for the Bitcoin option, plus an additional commission. 7% for cash exchange “. Walmart, in collaboration with CoinMe, has launched a pilot project that will allow you to buy Bitcoin in Coinstar ATM situations within the American giant’s stores. Currently, 200 ATMs have been enabled to acquire BTC, but Walmart expects to reach 8,000 in the future.

22 october (2021): International Stuttering Awareness Day

International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD), or International Stammering Awareness Day, is an annual celebration held on October 22. It was first held in the UK and Ireland, in 1998. The day is intended to raise public awareness of the issues faced by millions of people – one percent of the world’s population – who stutter, or stammer.

Every year, stuttering communities and associations around the world get together, put on events and campaign to highlight how certain aspects of society can be difficult for people who stammer; to challenge negative attitudes and discrimination; and to debunk myths that people who stammer are nervous or less intelligent.

ISAD also celebrates the many notable figures who stammer who have made a mark on the world now and throughout history in the fields of science, politics, philosophy, art, cinema and music.

ISAD includes an online conference, running annually from October 1 to 22 each year, targeted at people with an interest in stuttering as well as speech-language pathologists and their clients. The conferences, held every year since 1998, are all still available online. More boys than girls stutter by a ratio of 8 to 1. However, girls are less successful in eliminating their stutter as they mature.

Worldwide there are public awareness events, a media campaign, educational activities and online resources.

In an article published in the UK magazine Community Care to mark International Stuttering Awareness Day, Irina Papencheva from the Bulgarian Stuttering Association and Phil Madden from the European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities demanded a fresh start in attitudes towards stammering, saying that “everyone has the responsibility to be aware, to be sensitive in our conversations and meetings” and to remember that stuttering is “not funny”.

LYRIC

It was just like magic
When your hips came crashin’
There were fire’s burnin’
And my hands learning
To paint with passion
It was planets meeting
It was synced up breathing
There were angels callin’ and more free fallin’
Than I believed in

Memories like freight trains hit me
I replay to keep you with me
Better to have had than not at all

We were chasing stars
Across the county lines
Two imperfect pieces
With our fingers intertwinеd
And I would do it all again
Knowing I’d be left behind
Oh, what a timе
Back when you were mine

Oh, I’m hurting
But I’m still certain
That when the pain comes back in waves
Yeah, it was worth it,

Memories like freight trains hit me
I replay to keep you with me
Better to have had than not at all

We were chasing stars
Across the county lines
Two imperfect pieces
With our fingers intertwined
And I would do it all again
Knowing I’d be left behind
Oh, what a time
Back when you were mine

Oh, back when you were mine
Oh, we were chasing stars
Oh, we were chasing stars

We were chasing stars
Across the county lines
Two imperfect pieces
With our fingers intertwined
And I would do it all again
Knowing I’d be left behind
Oh, what a time
Back when you were mine

When you’re mine
Back when you were mine
Back when you were mine
(Oh, when you were)
Back when you were mine
(Oh, when we were chasin’ stars)
(Oh, when we were chasin’ stars)
Back when you were mine
