So, I've decided to start a blog. I'll begin with something fairly benign and unthreatening - the weather in my corner of Europe.
It's been snowing in Trento, on and off, for the last few days. But by now the snow has become old, brown and slushy. Still, every now and then you'll come across a pristine white patch, untouched and ripe for the jumping.
Actually, the allure of snow begins to wear off pretty quickly. Once you've had a snowball fight or two and made a snowzilla, you're left with slushy brown snow at the side of the road and icy footpaths which disturb contemplation as you wander along them because of the constant threat of falling and dying.
