Patient discussion about spirit

Q. how do you lift your spirit during those tough days of economic depression?

A. just find an activity that will take your mind off things.(i.e.)fishing,games,puzzles,camping,etc.

Q. Where should i go when i feel down and lonely? is there like an independence way to lift my spirit?

A. I spend a lot of time in "my room". It has a window to look out and a comfortable chair to sit and think in. I can shut the door to get real quiet. I can read and study things. Reading gets my mind off of down feelings. There is also a time for going out walking. It frees my mind. When I come back I seem to have a new perspective on things. Sometimes I go and sit out in the woods for awhile where I live. I like listening to the birds and nature sounds. Its nice to see clouds going by in the sky or the stars at night. If something's really bothering you, call on someone you can trust and talk it out. Just find that activity that suits you best and get busy at it.

Che il nome di De Amicis (1846-1908) faccia la sua comparsa piu o meno esplicita tra le pagine di Nell'azzurro e sia percepito al contempo come un esempio di eccellenza letteraria e un tipo di stile (e contentuto) a cui aspirare, non costituisce certo una sorpresa.
Pascoli elimina "l'indeterminatezza leopardiana e il manierismo (linguistico) petrarchesco, ma ad essi subentra un'altra dimensione altrettanto distante dal reale e dal quotidiano cui il poeta dice di aspirare. La massima precisione possibile tende, nelle sue estreme conseguenze, all'incomprensibile e al mistero" (40).
Lo studioso avrebbe ormai potuto aspirare a una brillante carriera accademica in Italia; nel dicembre 1937 Poggioli ottenne, a soli trent'anni, la libera docenza in filologia slava presso l'Universita di Roma; i membri della commissione incaricata di valutare Renato Poggioli erano i linguisti Matteo Bartoli, Giacomo Devoto, Carlo Tagliavini e gli slavisti Giovanni Maver e Arturo Cronia.
(9) Inoltre, proprio sulla natura, l'oggetto e il mezzo della contemplazione--filosofica o teologica, intellettuale o amorosa--si erano appuntate tutte le diatribe relative alla suprema felicitas cui l'uomo possa aspirare, in vita o post mortem, in quanto essere dotato d'intelletto, cioe a dire di potenziale speculativo.
