The Eye Society

Joshua Aria and Joshua had known each other for a year now. They had met at the E-footballers Award the year before. Aria was there with her family, because of her father: Adam Adams, one of the best amateur e-footballers of all times. Adams had never missed an E-F Award, and neither had his wife....

The Eye Society

Gloria Gloria liked gossiping with the girls – that was why her visits always took so long. Even though she wasn’t sure that the love story between Michael and Diana was true, she joined that conversation as if it was the only thing she cared about. Gloria, clearly, suspected it was all a hoax to... Continue Reading →

The Eye Society

Brian Reading Ali’s name on the accident report had brought so many memories back to him. Ali Dawn, it could have been a namesake, but Brian somehow knew it wasn’t. That was why he decided to walk the airdriver to the aircar. Of course, One would have been fitter for the purpose, any other person... Continue Reading →

The Eye Society

Ali Ali had been doing this job for more than twenty-five years. It still impressed him when he thought about it, but he had been part of the first airdrivers’ crew in history; when they launched the air-cab service he was there, along with the other nine colleagues who passed the selection. No day had... Continue Reading →

The Eye Society

Aria Aria shut the trapdoor to her home behind her and looked around for the last time.  She used to go up and down that tunnel a dozen times a day when she was little, but that habit was long gone now. The sound of the air purifier filled the long white corridor. Aria’s home... Continue Reading →

Writing to Explore

The woman was ready to take notes. The blue pen she was holding didn't match at all the style of the notebook on which she was about to write. “Fancy pen," Clelia asked, "a present?" “For my graduation," the woman confirmed. Clelia would have won if she had bet, but she didn't say it aloud.... Continue Reading →

Earth Day 2020

Photo by Valentin Antonucci Did you know that 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day? The first Earth Day was celebrated on April the 22nd 1970, when twenty million Americans took the streets to protest environmental negligence and demand green politics.

Unprecedented Times For The Oil Industry

Photo by catmoz--4975455 What happens if crude oil goes negative? This is a question I’d never thought I would ask, and yet here I am, jumping from one website to the other, looking for an answer. You must have heard the news; they’re all talking about it: the US oil price has dropped below zero... Continue Reading →

Change Of Plan

Photo by Breakingpic How many of you had to change their plans in the last few weeks? I bet that your lives have been a little disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak, just like mine. If you have read some of my old posts, you may remember that an excerpt of my novel had been selected... Continue Reading →

Mining the Moon: Really?

Have you ever heard of moon mining? I was scrolling my news feed this morning, when I came across an article about it. Apparently, Donald Trump has signed an executive order encouraging the US to mine the moon for minerals. I got upset at first: the whole world is focused on fighting coronavirus and this...

The lost community

The beautiful weather we had over the weekend made people think they could go to the park, find a spot, sit down and get tanned. This irresponsible behaviour didn’t go unnoticed by the Lambeth council, which unfortunately had to close Brockwell Park on Sunday due to the high number of visitors ignoring the social distancing...

Brand New World

The birds are twitting outside my window. They go ahead all day long. No other sound interferes with their singing. Humans are all shut inside their homes, and nature takes its space back. I’m sitting at my desk, trying to find the inspiration: I should start a new chapter of my novel today; but I... Continue Reading →

Raising Without Racing

I’m supposed to run my first race on May the 25th, but I don’t think it’s gonna happen. Boris Johnson Yesterday announced new stricter measures in the attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19 – finally, I must say – and the first events have already been cancelled. Not the race, at least not yet,... Continue Reading →

A Modern Pandemic

“That branch of the lake of Como, which extends towards the south, is enclosed by two unbroken chains of mountains, which, as they advance and recede, diversify its shores with numerous bays and inlets.” I woke up with this in my head today. It’s the incipit of one of the most famous Italian novels of all... Continue Reading →

The Importance of Being Free

The WHO has declared COVID-19 a pandemic, in other words an epidemic of global concern. They believe governments are underestimating the issue, they’re worried that the new coronavirus will continue spreading, causing the collapse of the health system, and perhaps reaching countries that wouldn’t be capable to overcome the emergency. You must have heard of... Continue Reading →

Humanity in the time of COVID-19

I was supposed to go see my family and friends on the 21st of March, but they live in Italy and the entire country is currently lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As you can easily guess, I gotta stay here, in London, and wait for it to be over. I could still potentially... Continue Reading →

Good News

My mood has been up and down lately. I desperately needed good news. I’ve been writing a novel since last September, and to do so I left the bookshop where I worked; I felt like it was the only option I had. I’ve always wanted to be a writer but my lack of confidence has... Continue Reading →

The Third Attempt

Yes, I have to admit it, this is the third time I try to start a blog. The two previous attempts didn't go too well, but the good news is that now I think I know why. I had to look deep inside myself before realising that I was sabotaging my chances to achieve my... Continue Reading →

Don't ask me! I'm still trying to figure it out... Sorry, just joking. Well, to be honest not entirely, but let me try to put something together. My name is Brooxy Moon. I'm a thirty-two years and two days old woman who likes observing the world and the beings that populate it. The things that... Continue Reading →
