In the old days, the monasteries provided the widest and deepest education.

Anyway, after wallowing in the end result of my
international-move-from-Hell, it's better now to adopt the Beppe Grillo
approach (*) to my past experiences or maybe a Nina Simone approach (**)
and move on. I'm in the best place possible in the world (because my best
resources are _here_ and _not_ there) in order to glue those pieces
of myself back together.

(*) the word: "vaffanculo" (F*ck *ff) as applied by Beppe Grillo
