Merry Christmas to all !

I just uploaded a new video to my youtube channel,

LET IT GO (featuring @melissawinter.artist painter).
We met by chance in that very special spot in September of this year, I was playing voice & guitar and she was drawing the panorama..
We decided to make a video, trying to remember the moment and the magic of the place.

now it is available on my channel, LET IT GO - TOZ Antonio Piretti (featuring Melissa Winter).
Check it out ;-)

7 December 23

Let's call them coincidences, funny at least.
yesterday I was playing at Spadina.
I was giving a lot of energy in one of my Christmas songs, it was going very well, I finish and in front of me there's a short guy with a long white beard, old and funny who asks me "do you have a mask"?
I can't believe it and ask him "what?"
"I have to go to the Doctor and if I don't wear a mask they won't let me in, do you have one?"
my arms are falling...
I ask him "but among all the things you could have said to me, you ask me if I have a mask, here in the subway?"
"I turned the corner, I realized I didn't have it, you were my best attempt.." he said.
he was funny and the only thing I said to him was "yes, I have one".
I knew I always carried one with me in my guitar case.
I give it to him and he gives me 5 dollars..
"I didn't ask you anything" I tell him and he, "thank you thank you" and goes away..
This morning, as I was going out I said to myself, "now you no longer have any mask with you, in case (even if it is not mandatory.. but)".
I was playing at Don Mills in the late afternoon.
A lady comes back from the queue that was forming for the escalators and places an envelope in my treasure chest.
when the song is over I look at it, there were 20 dollars and a mask, yes a f.....g mask !
when I saw it I couldn't believe it.. you think about things and they come to you..
look at the photo

ps: this mask is even better than the basic one I had

angels exist and I have certainly met several of them,
in the subways it is easier..
sometimes you realize it immediately, sometimes after a while by connecting certain "coincidences".
Today I saw one again.. with his hands, he repeated exactly the same move (impossible to forget it).. I was singing, it took me a moment, as soon as I realized I said to him "hey I've already seen you.. hey.." but he was already far away, unfortunately..
The first thing I thought "woaw, incredible..! well, he must be in a hurry to go and help someone, surely there is a need".

He was tall (1.90m) thin, black hair, with an oriental face, dressed in a military green sweater with the hood over the head..

4 December 23

getting lost and finding yourself, 1000 times...
in everything & nothing, in people's eyes, in your songs... in your joys, fears, or maybe just in your dreams...
waking up at a certain point and feeling the cold and the pain in your hands...
this is also playing in the subway of Toronto.
(the musician's spot - Don Mills Subway Station)


27 November 23

slowly making peace with this city.
maybe I don't wanna give weight to what I don't like, or maybe I just try to highlight more what is good happening around me.
However, little by little I am able to feel that "warm" feeling that I was missing at the beginning

3 funny episodes that happened to me recently:
-) at Yorkdale, a distinguished old lady stops in front of me, looks at me, takes a white handkerchief out of her bag... then with her gloves she unfolds the handkerchief and places the 5 dollar bill, which was in the white handkerchief, inside my treasure chest.. $5 bill inside a perfectly folded white handkerchief, just waow!
-) as the first song, I always play Love Is arpeggiating the chords.. at Don Mills, honestly still a bit cold, just at the beginning but immediately a 5 bill and then a whole class of kids stopped near me and after a while everyone came by to give me something, incredible, there were about 20 of them and everyone was smiling, applauding, etc. at a certain point I stopped, and said them, "this never happened to me" then we took some photos and I asked them if they wanted to sing a song together, I proposed Stand By Me but the teacher said they had to go.. The incredible thing is that in the late afternoon, right before to stop, I was playing Stand By Me and I recognized them in the multitude of people, they were coming back and they waved and smiled, it was fate that they heard that song.
- I was exiting from Osgoode tired, like every evening and an elderly couple was walking in front of me.. I didn't want to be rude and I waited, walking behind them.. they came out of the doors (paid unpaid area) and with such a gentle gesture automatic he held out his hand and she did the same thing.. they seemed to read each other's minds.. they were elderly, but so sweet and continued walking hand in hand, slowly.. just beautiful.. in the confusion, noise, rush, Love always wins, in silence.. the best thing of the day

good vibes last Saturday @ The Tranzac Club.
Thank You All for participating, it
was a pleasure. (see pic)

13 November 23

Congratulations Leo for your achievements

11 November 23

last Sunday morning, I was playing at Yorkdale station..
at a certain point I said to myself, "let's see if He has something to tell me"..
so, as I often do, I played "My Name Is Not Important"..
when I play that song, every time particular things happen (there are no coincidences)..
and it's my "button" to tune into His frequencies..
a little girl with lots of black curls, with a big smile came to me with a coin ($2) and said:
" thank you, have a good day"..
it was truly a good day..
(see pic from the subway)


9 November 23

It's been a month since I returned.. and I resumed life in Toronto, with its frenzy and its exasperations.. all with 3 small kids, who bring a lot of joy but also a lot of confusion.

the feedback from the first month is this...
city changed, as always and unfortunately in a negative way.
many more homeless people sleeping on the streets or camping in tents, right downtown Toronto.
More aggression, both verbal and physical.
Honestly I don't like walking with my children and let them see people sleeping on the street and, on the subway, you too often meet crazy or lost people who stink, who talk and act like crazy.. etc, (more often than the previous years).
Toronto has clearly lost the "candidness" it had years ago.

As far as playing is concerned, the stations are the same, the people are more present than last year (we were just emerging from Covid, so at least now I see people's faces without a mask, even if it's frequent seeing people with masks on).
What I personally consider to be "not understandable" are the announcements that are broadcast in the subways with a frequency and a volume that is "crazy", for each song there will be approximately 2/3/4 announcements... in the name of "safety".. but is this really the case?
so playing, in my case, often is identified with exceeding the volume of the speakers which honestly makes no sense.

I still feel the energy that the city has and it is undoubtedly nice to walk downtown with all the lights of the skyscrapers turned on... but the direction that this city has taken is a progressive move away from a human dimension, both in terms of prices and relationships.

I continue to consider myself privileged for the possibility I have (to play whenever I feel) but I admit that several things should be better considered to make a perfor
mance such and not a struggle of volumes..
step by step

8 November 23

It's been more than 10 years now that when I want to take a day of "rest" I set myself available (with my agents) for movie sets.
I can say, if done every now and then, they are fascinating..
different movies, different locations, different roles, costumes, special effects, etc..
thanks to these sets I got to know places in Toronto that I would never have had the opportunity to see... from museums to ancient halls, tunnels, castles, etc...
often impossible times, like today.. calling time 5.30am in Hamilton.. with shuttle at 4.45am from Kipling.. which means that to be punctual I got up at 2:30am..
it's all part of these film productions..
it's also very interesting to see how they film, the lights, the cameras, the sound, etc..
today is a "rest" day for me..
and when you're not on set, it means you're in holding and you can work with your PC, not bad.. ;-)

It happened again, another rose..
the tips may be lower, but the roses have never been so many! ;-)

30 October 23

I've always been very honest with myself, if at the end of a concert I didn't sell any CDs or people didn't come up to me to congratulate me, it was my fault, it meant that I hadn't achieved my goal, which was to transfer emotions.
I've always applied the same concept wherever I played, but I have to admit that what I'm experiencing in Toronto these days doesn't add up to me, that is, people thank you, sometimes they dance, they compliment you, they show that you touched their heart with their hands.. but with a smile they go away.. they just don't tip (let's say much less).. it seems either that they have no money (I don't think it's this) or that there is no longer the mentality that has always existed in Toronto in the past years, perhaps the people have changed.. who knows?
I'll give you a funny example..
on Saturday morning I was playing at Yorkdale (in the passage that leads to the big mall) and a well-dressed man stopped and placed 1 dollar in my treasure chest, then he stood there in front of me.. when the next flow of people arrives, everyone passes without giving any sign or tip and he starts shouting in a loud voice "what are you doing? don't you have a dollar to give to this good musician?" and then "tip rather than spend money on your girlfriend!" or "Stop to watch your phone, use your ears!!!"
I was laughing and so was he and the funniest thing is that some even went back to give a tip.. but the somewhat "sad" thing is that in fact many don't even realize what there is around them (too much in their phone) or they simply don't tip anymore.. because here it's all voluntary, therefore easy to ignore.. in any case it doesn't add up to me, but this time I don't feel it's my fault..
Anyway, I still do feel to be a privileged one to be able to perform so often, we will see

27 October 23

I was at Spadina Subway Station and a lady with a small child, they stood in front of me... I was talking to a TTC manager and I saw that they were waiting for me... then I started playing again, and the child was having a lot of fun.
The Mother approaches me and says "what an incredible coincidence, 10 years ago I left you my email in one of these stations.. 10 minutes ago I received your newsletter, I thought of you and after a few meters I have you met again.. the incredible thing is that I've been living in Montreal for 4 years and I'm only in Toronto for the weekend".
(In fact I had sent a newsletter to my contacts in Toronto for the concert I'll have at Tranzac on November 18th).
We talked a bit and it was nice to experience this coincidence..
it was destiny that our paths would cross again.
(a pic of me by Oz John Photography)

22 October 23

something has changed..
years ago, it was nice to play on the weekend because the families go out, the small children are accompanied by their parents and it was wonderful when the small child was coming to you with the coin given by the parent..
years ago I wrote a song "Thanks To You", just to thank these beautiful moments.. children, elderly people, etc..
I don't know how to say, but now it's different.. on a very crowded Saturday with lots of children.. no one gave them anything..
people are different now, it seems to me that that beautiful altruism that was very present years ago in Toronto has been lost, people are different and everyone has this phone in their hands, even when they walk.. actually, they use the phone as a guide, they are not even able to move without the phone. They are all on their phones.. they all speak with the loud volume (almost no one has earphones) and they turn the phone over to show who is playing (me).. honestly, this is a mix of ridiculous and sad..
I look at them and I can only be happy to have lived my youth without the phone.
(see the Finch Station sign from the track, pic taken before to go home)

20 October 23

let's say that playing since 2006 I've seen all sorts of things... but this hasn't happened to me yet.
I was playing at Spadina Subway Station, the day was quite slow but in any case I really like that station, as the acoustic is great..
while I'm playing, a girl appears in front of me with a rose..
I stop astonished..
I honestly don't know what to say and I say "thank you.. but.."
she looks at me..
and what comes out is "but shouldn't you give it to a woman?"
I admit it's not that great of an answer, but it totally took me by surprise.. I was in my thoughts and often when I play I detach myself from what's happening.. I'm in my trance..
She smiles at me and says "no, I'll give it to you because you are an excellent musician".
I smile and thank her again..
I take the rose and put it on top of my suitcase..
As I played during the day, I looked at the rose and I said to myself "what an idiot you are, you could have also shown yourself a little more loving, or happy.. ".
That rose accompanied me throughout the day..
Fantastic idea, beautiful gesture..
thank you very much to you who brought it to me!
I really appreciated.

19 October 23

he city changes constantly, yes.. but the route of my run doesn't.
I've been running since 2009 south along Simcoe Street reaching Harbourfront... then heading east, arriving at Trillium Park running along the lake.
It's very beautiful.. once there I do aerobic exercises for the shoulders and go back.
Nice to see the lake, the sailing boats and often landing and taking off from Toronto's second airport, on the island opposite.
On a day like today, with 14 degrees it's really relaxing.
(picture of the skyline of Toronto, lake front)


16 October 23

I wanted to play here again, after a long time, it has always been a station where I went often and willingly..
but now it's simply impossible (before saying this I played from 1pm to 6pm).. just an incredible noise from the arrivals of the trains from Kipling towards Kennedy and constants announcements from the speakers at a loud volume, right above the spot.. it's not nice.
That is, what's the point of putting a speaker above the musician's position, and above all keeping, it at such a loud volume?
I'm sure the TTC has many things to think about, but more attention to the musicians of the musical project, in my opinion, would amplify the benefit for the customers... music brings positivity, helps, heals, excites you, a song can change a day, etc..
but if the musician is not put in a position to be able to play, then the musician will only be able to go to the stations where the conditions exist..

BTW: the people are and always have been great @ Royal York Station, thanks guys !


15 October 23

Playing on the subway (or on the street) has taught me a lot over the years..
among others, two concepts that I always carry with me
- even when it seems like no one is there, or that no one is paying attention to what you do, someone always pops up to show you that you are not alone..
- that we are all the same, no matter how we are dressed, the color of our skin or our origins, we all get emotional with a beautiful song and everyone tries to give a hand for what he/she can.. when you say a thank you, it is said to everyone, without preconceptions..

ps: it will never be too late to learn to live together as roommates on the same planet..
(picture taken at Spadina Subway Station)

14 October 23

a nice day..
outdoor.. Yordale is the only station where the musician's spit is outside the tube.
Apart from a weird beggar who was quite close and who was removed by security only after 45 minutes, the rest went well.
It's also nice to change stations and see new faces or see familiar people again after a long time.
The thing that makes me feel better is knowing that I'm playing with my license and that everything is allowed.
Let's say that most of the time, when you play on the street, amplification is not allowed and this makes you trying to keep the volume low, with a lower impact on the performance.. in the Toronto TTC you push , first because the voice is not amplified, but then because you are in compliance, so there are no brakes..
this makes me finally feel good. (see the musician's spot)

13 October 23

it all depends on how you want to see the day.. you always have the possibility to see positive or negative, it's up to you. Nice while I was still setting up a lady's request "I'm going to Tim Hortons, can I get you something?" Less nice when that idiot dressed like a fool pretended to put something in, but actually took some money away.. anyway, I was happy to throw myself back into this Toronto adventure, let's see how it goes this time, but I'm confident. The voice is strong ;-) (see the musician's spot)

12 October 23

every time when I come back to Toronto I go to @longandmcquade to rent something.. a speaker, or whatever I need.. and this place seams always a Paradise to me. (see picture)

11 October 23

one of the most terrible travelling day of my life..
we were boarding at Frankfort and we found out that the ETA of the Maya passport was not connected, since my wife renewed the passport.. 
so big drama..
we had to renew the ETA.. it took ew minutes but the boarding of the fight was already closed and they made us fly to Lisbon and then to Toronto..
more than 24 hours travel.. with 3 little kids
no way 

8 October 23

last time in Travemunde for this season.
It was a long and busy spring/summer..
always nice to be there and always good people.
now heading to Toronto in a few days


7 October 23

last concert in Seedorf.
It was really cozy and a kind of surprise.
I played in the garden shelter in which I usually play and rehearse
for sure a kind of intimate gig that has to be repeated.

28 September 23

very nice concert @ Ohlendorff’sche Villa - Hamburg
very nice people and great vibes
it was 3 weeks since my previous live and I felt it, but there was no time to rehearsal during the previous days.

when I arrived at home I saw the almost full moon and I went running.
the light and the atmosphere were fantastic, running in the deep silence with the moon light, is super !


23 September 23

the Bolognese hills are fantastic, if done with your bike.
they become special... a mix of history, sun, effort and part of your childhood

20 September 23

today, a nice section of live recording of audio & video for an upcoming project that will be released in the next few months.
Thanks to @boat_studio_recording & @pietroballardini


when I began to undertake this song writing project, I did it because I wanted to transfer messages into my songs... messages/values that I could believe in and give my contribution to society to improve.

today we recorded live some of the first songs I wrote, which will be reported in a video documentary that will be produced shortly.

stay connected for updates


18 September 23

let the dancing begin
staying more than an hour under the sun at 27 degrees with a full wetsuit wasn't very strategic, let's say it was the best way to waste my energy.
I was feeling incredibly hot and couldn't wait to get in the water.
The water was also very hot, around 25 degrees.
I swam easily, but during the swimming portion I felt
2 starts of cramps in my feet, not a good sign.
It meant that there wasn't much fuel already, I finished the swimming portion in 5 minutes more than th
e year before, in 36 minutes and 46 seconds. Even if tired, I was happy to face the biking portion..

The bicycle section started well, I didn't push, but I was controlling my energy.
I arrived before the Bertinoro climb at 32.9 km/h.
The climb wasn't a problem and then obviously the beautiful descent began.
The point is that at 60 km I started to have some cramps around my right knee (the weaker leg), that is, it became more and more difficult to complete the pedaling cycle... I was afraid my leg would "lock up".
I had tried my brother's bike (beautiful and high-performance), with which I was racing, only 2 times and I had raised the seat just a little compared to my setting, that little was obviously not good and I was facing the consequences.
Luckily I ate half a banana which helped me a lot.
I tried in every way to stay calm and continue, I reduced the speed and assumed a different posture, from the lowered position of the bars to the more raised and relaxed position.
Luckily I finished the bike section without having to stop, even if the average was now inevitably compromised, 29.2 km/h
I was however optimistic for the running section, as I had never pushed up to that point, so in theory the energy was there, or at least that's what I thought...

Ps: also my nutrition during the race, 3 energy bars and half if Banana, was not appropriate.
Thanks for the bike @gio4bo it was perfect.

before starting the running portion, to cool down, I spilled a bottle of water on my head..
in addition to cooling off, I unfortunately wet my t-shirt and shorts... which wasn't strategic, as I immediately had about 2kg more and the t-shirt was constantly cold on my stomach.
I began the run and start off well but after the first 6 km I start to alternate running with walking, exactly 55 seconds of walking and 1 km running...
I continue like this until 2/3 of the race then the walking period gets longer, somehow I was gone..
I even had a hard time opening my mouth...
Just one fairly heavy cramp 500 meters from the finish in the left hamstring and then the last jog.
I knew that I had run more slowly than the year before, but I was aware that once again the mind had managed to command an exhausted body, managing a situation that was compromised right from the start without panicking.
I finished in 6 hours and 36 minutes, the cut off time was 8 hours.. so, goal achieved..!
Thank you all for the support, every encouragement pushed me to where I arrived.


17 September 23

I brought this medal home with willpower, my body had gone from the 60th km on the bike portion.
I had set the bike seat slightly higher (my mistake), and despite a good start (swim & bike, just before Bertinoro my average was around 33 km/h), at the 60th km all the muscles and tendons near the right knee started to cause major problems.. with the onset of cramps with every movement.
I therefore I had to change my posture, no longer use the handlebars, but stand up straight as much as possible to ease the tension on the knee. I managed to complete the running section trying to prevent cramps, with a mix of running and walking (thanks to @correrenaturale).
Happy to have reached the goal anyway, even if with an hour more than the year before.

thanks Carlo @clinicadelciclo for the bike, it was perfect.
thanks to my brother @gio4bo for lending it to me.
my little girl did her second IronKids, and this time she ran really fast, besides being beautiful she is also very fast!

Hugs to all

- sleeping in a tent and waking up at 5am in the last 3 days in a row due to the humidity didn't help.
- Santiago's baptism in Bologna the day before didn't help
- having been in a full wetsuit on the starting line on the beach under the sun at 27 degrees before departure for an hour, had taken away 50% of my energy.

once again we brought
it home, thanks to my wife Maybritt for the everything
(even though she lost my short
s on the way back to the campsite).

thank yo
u all for the support ;-)

16 September 23

Among music, travels, racing, 3 children and a lot of mess, we (@hippiehappyholistic ) also managed to baptize Santiago, and celebrate just a few meters from the 2 towers #Bologna ❤️💙 TOP!

Thanks @raulfantini for the hospitality
(some pics of the celebration)

Ten days in Riva Del Garda,
Every day, I woke up and went swimming fir an hour..

3 September 23

I was playing,
I stopped to change the battery of my guitar and she asked me, how much is one of your cds?

she was drawing next to me on the grass and after a while she gave me this drawing @melissawinter.artist of the view in front of us.

a few days later we shot a video together in the same spot.

keep tuning for updates

10 August 23

from the 4th to the 7th of August I was in Berlin with Oz, a very cool photographer friend of mine
we worked quite hard on a new video and on new pictures..
soon, the results

15 July 23

I think I did very well, I enrolled in "Correre Naturale" (running school)
practically I will learn to run correctly .. it was about time !!!
let's see if at 70.3 of Cervia I'll do better than the year before

11 July 23

I'm happy to announce that I'll be part of the triathlon race 70.3 at Cervia on September 17th 2023.
I know that my right knee is not in shape (just to joke about it).. but I feel, once again, to be able to accomplish 
the race and present my self at the final line on time, before the cutting time.
I've always like the challenges, they are giving a taste to your actions.. 
I'm happy to feel alive again, with a goal in mind for my trainings.
I'll keep you posted with new
s and info about my training..

5 Jul23

and the doctor, after visiting me, asks me:
"why do you want to run an ironman with a knee like this, just for passion? think of something else"
I immediately realized that that doctor hadn't run many races in his life to ask me that question

25 June 23

and so the waiter approached me and said "a table wants to offer you something to drink"
I didn't know what to say, since I always drink my Tea.. in the end I said "a Fanta"
Fanta is fizzy, so it's not good at all if you're playing and singing.
after a while the waiter brings me the Fanta and I put it behind me.
I was playing on the grass.
when I finally finish the last song, I turn around and say to myself "I can finally drink this Fanta"

I look at it, I take it and I see that the bottle had literally been attacked by ants
I can only bring it back to the bar, no Fanta

21 June 23

it was nice to end the concert with "They Are Still Here"
it was like having him close, or at least asking for his attention
life has knocked several times on this day, changing its atmosphere
since one cannot forget, one can smile with a veil of sadness in one's heart
the June solstice is always a very particular day.. unique

27 May 23

throughout my musical journey, I have never canceled a gig.. not even if I had fever, like today
(here the pic of the today gig)

26 May 23

with three small children.. for everything, it takes more time.. 
(memory pic thanks to Oz Photography)

18 May 23

I spent a week in Mexico..
even if the days of the flights were devastating (more than 20 hours travelling in both travels, round trip), the experience was beautiful.
The climate is beautiful (more than 30 degrees), melodic music that was heard in the clubs and on the radio, 
nice people, warm and sincere and nice company too, Jorg (together our hotel) the owner of Byblos (the most beautiful place in Italy in the 90s) with whom I worked many years in the past.
We went for a convention that was held on the weekend of May 13th and 14th, but we got to see both Guadalajara, where we were, and other villages, such as Tequila (here a couple of pictures) where the famous liquor is coming from (pictures of the visit to the Tres Mujeres Tequila company production).
We also finally met the founders of Billions, a company that performs cryptocurrency arbitrage, and we were therefore able to remove the doubts we had.
Maybe some sidewalks could have been kept better, but overall Mexico was a really nice surprise..

27 April 23

a day to remember, but in a negative sense
already driving to Travemunde, not only I was late, but I was talking on the phone and I didn't make up the right mood that usually I have arriving there..
unfortunately, as during all this April '23, the weather was cold and windy..
I had the wind on my front/left for all the time.. around 21 km/h..
as usual I started before 1pm heading to 5 pm.. 4 hours, this is what gives a sense to my day there.
I felt cold, it was difficult to move the left hand (I was losing the sensibility of the fingers) and I also had a drop in my voice, an aphonia.. that happened just 2 or 3 times in all my music years (since 2006)..

needless to say I was tired, since in the last several nights I didn't slept enough, the kids were often waking up while sleep..
nothing was working well but I was still trying to share good vibes..
I'm always convinced that a song can change your life.. 
I heard some passerby saying "today is too cold"

(I don't know German language, but this I understood).

always cloudy and for a few minutes also raining..
30 minutes before the time I thought to stop, the urban police arrived..
they were three, one man and two women.
The man was talking and he told me that the speaker is not allowed in the Lubeck area.

I was trying to understand what happened, because where I was nothing was around me.. I was on the little promenade along the Trave channel..
while I was explaining that my sound was not loud and the people were always happy about that..
one of the 2 women said something to the man..
and he asked me "my colleague is telling me that we met already last year.. is that true?"
it was true..
so he said to me that if they had seen me again with the speaker on, they would have confiscated it and there will have been a fine of 70 euro
the lady asked me also my id and started to write down my data (it took quite a bit)..
honestly I felt treated as a criminal..
my intention has always been to share good vibes and trying to make the elderly people in Travemunde more happy.
so, that was it..
after several years of good vibes and magic moments, my time in Travemunde was vanishing surrounded by 3 police officers who were applying the so called rule..
I know what I did there.. I know how many people complimented me, how many cried, how many smiled, and how many had a good time.. everyday I was there..
but no one was there in that moment..
nothing, no one said a word, silence..

only a man approached me when the police left and said something is German..
he was wondering why I was not playing anymore..
I said what the police told me..
he said something in German, shrugged and walked away..
that was it, around 6 years of fantastic memories, sunsets and struggles.. 
the wind was still pushing its cold breeze..
slowly I walked away..

PS: sometimes while I was playing there, I was used to joke with myself, saying:
"one day, in this spot, they will erect a statue with my name"

I suppose I was wrong..

I was running very quietly..
I heard a "toc" and a little pain in my right knee..
I stopped, I didn't feel much.. it seemed to me that I had maybe put my leg in a wrong way touching the ground..
I didn't know.. I said to myself, maybe it will stop soon and I continued..
the little pain was not disappearing..
I did my usual standard 6 km..
stretching, shower and slowly I couldn't move my leg anymore..
no sleep..
I went to the hospital the next morning but the only thing they could do was x-rays..
ok, they confirmed that there are no broken bones.. but I already knew that..

I'll have to do more detailed tests in the next few days.
in the hospital, however, they suspect the meniscus .. ouch..

in 2002 I created enjoytoz, in 2023 cryptozlead, always forward.
take a look, there are 4 courses, I think they are all interesting.
I believe everyone should know what will be part of our future anyway 😉

In these days I'm dedicating a good part of my time to a new project that I'm following since several months, connected with cryptocurrencies. Regarding my music project, since there are no gigs in these days, it is nice to grab everyday a different guitar (I have 4) and review some songs or just improvise something new.. or try a different piano version of one of my songs.

During February, I had the opportunity to play twice at the Windmühle Siebenbäumen e.V., Siebenbäumen and it was really nice. It was a pleasure to mix my performance, not only voice & guitar but also with an old piano and the atmosphere with all those candles was really cozy.
