MADE TO STICK



My latest reading has been Made to Stick, a mandatory book for CEO's, managers, businessmen, professors, educators, politicians, journalists, and anybody who struggle to make their ideas “stick” in their audiences.

I've just finished a couple of days ago at the country house (located in Boston) where I'm staying for three weeks with old friends.


The house where I'm staying was built in 1827. And after a few refurbishments it still keeps the charm and the feeling of living in the 19th Century.


It takes me 30 minutes by bike to go from the wood to the ocean where the Kennedy's uses to go for swimming and sailing.


Yesterday was the famous Labor Day in the US, when children enjoy the last day of the summer at the beach. Today, you can see them in their uniforms going back to school. Poor things!


Last week I went to the Plimoth Plantation, where Native Wampanoag and Colonial English men and women live their lives, as if it were the 1620s.


This is not a painting, but a real picture that I took of one lady at the Plimoth Plantation.
