Going off in all directions, mixing poetry and wonder
My life as a florist
Being a florist is definetly something I wasn’t expecting in this life to take form and just happen. Staying in London was secretly implying to accept whatever job was knocking at the door while getting closer to what I really wanna do in life.
Strangely enough, life decided to introduce me this extraordinary opportunity to have some privileged contacts with flowers and plants. And my God, how inspirational they are! It’s a tough job, of course, especially when you spend 8 hours in a shed with open windows and it’s snowing outside! My back was as mercyless as I was being with it, but hey… what a ride!
Conditioning roses is an exvercise to practice your patience: certain thorns will easily drive you to rotten soon, you have to strip them off. Our feet, at the same way, need some constant conditioning, to better evaluate our next stop and directions. There are leaves we don’t need anymore and petals we should ideally get rid off. Because dealing with living beings, every day, just made me more aware of how connected and similar we are to the other creatures who share this planet of ours.
It’s incredible, it’s everyday wowing. Here’s some pictures of my arrangements, for you to have a look. If you live in London or nearby and want to have a closer look, the shop is called Bayley and Sage. I also make arrangements on my own, if you feel like negotiating new artistic ideas or have some plans for certain events and you’re looking for something reasonably cheap. Beijos!
I fell in love with writing when I was 6, when I grabbed a pen for the first time in my hand, then become a pencil, a laptop, a microphone, a keyboard. I'm pretty obsessed with word created itself by my brain, I like it that much, I find it so amusing! I adore tea, sometimes with sugar (recently found out), sometime just combined with sugary sweets. I love Literature about sea, it's been my best friend for many afternoons. I'm captain by spirit of adventure and for loyalty.
"Quaquaversal" is a magic word for describing pretty accurately what I really am: an unprofessional wanderer who enjoys poetry, writing, walking, foreign languages. I currently work as a florist (and if you want a cheap yet spectacular bouquet, please contact me).
Sono innamorato della scrittura da quando avevo 6 anni, da quando ho stretto per la prima volta attorno alle dita una penna, una matita, poi divenute tastiere, schermi, monitor. Ho un'ossessione per la parola che si crea trasmigrando dal mio cervello, mi piace troppo, mi diverte come nient'altro. Adoro il tè, talvolta senza zucchero (piacevole scoperta), a volte accompagnato da alimenti pieni di calorie. Adoro la letteratura di mare, ha accompagnato moltissimi dei miei pomeriggi. Sono Capitano per spirito di conquista e di fedeltà nei miei confronti. Amo l'inverno, vivere, sperimentare, divertirmi. E dunque: cambiare rotta di continuo mantenendo ben saldo lo sguardo all'orizzonte. Mi auguro sia una permanenza di tuo gradimento. Il "Veliero" era partito anni fa come piattaforma di condivisione dei miei podcast (sono due e potete trovarli tranquillamente qui o praticamente dovunque, si chiamano "Il Veliero" e l'altro "Barcode, la musica col codice a barre"), poi è diventato piattaforme per interviste, progetti, recensioni, poesie, collaborazioni, insomma... amo cambiare e amo riscoprirmi.
