This is it… I have set up my blog, picked a template, photo, colours and fonts. I have even bought a bottle of American bourbon if I feel uninspired! It is ready to welcome my thoughts and my stories.
I always knew that it will be hard to start to write on a blank page. My challenge is to write using my second language and to preserve as much as I can the integrity of my adopted dialect.
I have find the courage to dive into it by looking at my bookshelves and my books populating them. My all time favourite author is American writer John Irving. I love his use of the words, his quirkiness and the constant originality of his storytelling. In The World According To Garp, Irving finished his novel by this sentence “But in the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases.” Garp’s universe is made of harsh reality, humour, vivid humanity… A rich tapestry of conflicted emotions.
I am wondering who are we, what and who I am in the world according to Bruno… Can I reflect on my personal world, contradictions, emotions and certitudes in a blog? I think I can…I think I should.
Support me, feedback to me and most of all enjoy my imperfect vision of the world.
