This Coronavirus is putting everyone in great emotional difficulty, even the ones who are always ready to fight to smile like me!

it is certainly a combination of factors. The fact is that I miss my dad like never before and the thought of not seeing my family and especially Mom for so long makes me really breathless.

There are mornings that I wake up with a boulder on my heart and moments of the day when I only see black .. but this is not me! and I don’t want to be me!

I was raised with a lot of love and smiles and this I want to continue to be.

Destiny or Heaven or someone for them .. intervened to alleviate the sadness and my heart ache .. making me meet new precious crazy friends! Those who wake up full of beautiful energy and do nothing but share it are contagious!

With two of them in particular, Laura and Rowen, I spent most of my time last week: a fantastic Hiking to Makapu’u Lighthouse (of which I will tell in another post) and the crazy exciting photonic unique adventure of Skydiving!

They proposed it to me on Friday for Saturday .. at the beginning I said “oh, I don’t know, I don’t think, I’m too afraid”, then in the meantime I decided to join the group and then decide there and then.

Their group of friends is truly engaging, affectionate and supportive.

All five were super convinced, confident and eager to fly. I was there that still did not know whether to jump or not ..

So I tried to focus myself only on the positive aspects that skydiving would have for me:

  • these are activities that can only be done in certain places and therefore I don’t know when this occasion could happen again
  • if something goes wrong, better to die in a fun activity than because of the cursed tumors or in an accident on the street (just see the percentage of deaths)
  • part of a super exciting and encouraging group
  • climbing so high in the sky (4,500 meters) will make me feel the feeling of being close to my Papone again

We have been waiting for almost three hours and then every time my mind ended up in some dark and negative corner, I immediately tried to bring back my attention cone (I will gladly tell you about it if you want) on that blessed list!

Needless to deny how much they helped any activity or chat we invented to cheat time .. stretching, the aperitif with Japanese tea and peanut butter biscuits, the question of the Puerto Ricans on Italian symbolic places ..

Then came the time to jump from the plane .. still trying to keep the attention cone on anything else .. trying to see Papo in the clouds .. I explained to my instructor that I would keep my eyes closed at the time of the launch. . (I suffer from vertigo and the heights impress me) and so I did .. I opened them immediately after .. in full free fall in the clouds!

Ok .. this part I wouldn’t know how to explain it in words .. I hope photos and videos will do it for me!

Good vision,

with love.

Your Silvia.

And you? Have you ever tried skydiving?

Tell us about your favorite adventure!!

In my life I cannot consider work a dream come true, because I would have preferred to do something else where I could have put much more than the enthusiasm that I have in character; but this was not the case and in the end I transformed it by putting love and passion on what I do.

It all started at the age of 14, when still almost a child I wanted to continue my studies with a great project: to become an Italian teacher.

All my ideas were stopped by my father who, adamant in his ideas and perhaps also by the economic possibilities, forbade me to study and to cheer me up he gave me a new hemming machine.

Initially I was very sad to have to put away my desire; then slowly, committing myself as I always try to do, I learned to be a hemmer by putting all the passion I can to do it well.

After scrupulously learning the art of composing all the pieces that make up an upper (because this is the meaning of hemming machine), I found myself working in the upper section of a large shoe factory in which about 40 young girls, almost all of them of the same age, worked. A very pleasant atmosphere was immediately created and I established good friendships that still exist today.

Today I can say that they have been very good years, even if you worked for many hours.

Initially I carried out simple hemming jobs, but over time I specialized more and more and assigned me more and more important tasks, thus also growing professionally, until I got a career advancement becoming manager of the sample department (prototyping).

In the beginning I was a little apprehensive as it was a job of great responsibility, but in a short time I soon became good and expert.

It was a role that gave a lot of satisfaction, since I saw all the new shoe creations born under my hands, to which I always gave an extra touch to improve them together with the collaborators of the modeling department.

Then there was a stop because of the birth of my two daughters; so for several years I found myself at home doing the same type of work and with the same commitment but between baby food, diapers and various home tasks.

When the girls became girls, the owner of the company proposed to me to go back to work in the company.

At first I would not have accepted because I had managed to organize everything so well, reconciling work and family, that I was not so happy at the idea of ​​having to deprive myself of some freedoms in following the growth of my daughters; but he asked me so insistently and also offered me some concessions in the timetables, which I eventually gave up. I returned to the place where I had started my career and who had seen me as a child, then a girl until I was a woman and a mother.

I resumed the role of manager in the sample department but with a few more tasks: in addition to managing the execution of the various shoe models, I organized and distributed the work both within the company and to external collaborators and explained to them all the procedures and the processes to be performed. I had become the expert teacher of footwear.

My career continued like this until I reached my pension, between a lot of work but also many satisfactions. It was certainly not the job of my dreams but it has become it with love and passion in trying to always do the best. I am fully proud of myself in everything I have done because I have taught other people the craft of the hemmer and I have inherited all my notions concerning not only the world of footwear but also my personal experience as manager accumulated over the years .

I will not have been a teacher of Italian but I have trained figures specialized in the footwear sector and I have been a teacher of a thousand other things not less important.
