In summer you may be in the need of “hiding” in a public library or bookstore, to escape the heat outside, while you wait for someone (to work, study or fun).
For me, days like these are dedicated to arts and literature, interactive or paper updates to capture all the news of the moment and possibly deepen the knowledge in the areas that I love.
This morning the photography books and news about the world of contemporary art or literary initiatives dedicated to Bologna dominated throughout. I realised that despite the crisis, creativity continues to give unexpected surprises, puffs of oxygen, that is really needed.
From secret gardens in NY to disputes of the Venice Biennale 2011, groups of English reading in Bologna or festival of video art that are likely to be supplanted by those of music (see the Umbria Jazz Festival), my mind easily leaves for journey of beauty.
Some title for good reads:

Cultural lectures necessary for an author… The next installment? perhaps dedicated to imagine a new theme for bookcrossing. Who knows?
