"Nel mezzo dell cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
chΓ© la diritta via era smarrita."

Halfway through his life, my fellow countryman Dante found himself wandering alone in a dark forest, having lost his way. Narrating his incredible journey out of the forest, through hell and all the way to paradise, he then went on to become one of the greatest Italian poets, and La Divina Commedia one of the masterpieces of world literature.

Having just about reached the same age as Dante's in the Divine Comedy, finding myself too in exile and lost in a dark place, I decided it is time to start working on my own literary masterpiece.

I'm finally starting a blog.
