Candle Light Life


The problem is I am an English as a Foreign Language learner… oh my God, what does this word mean?  This is what I read in English-Italian

L’informatizzazione sta permeando sempre di più le nostre vite.
percolatevi US, figurative (become lively) (figurato) animarsi, ravvivarsi v rif

Honesty is one of my life’s rules: in friendship, love, family and job.

Quite an idealist child myself even at the age of 40, I am raising three children with the same value: honesty.

The choice is always up to you. The last decision about your life’s route rests in your hands. Determining you: being a false or a true person. Personally, I have chosen the latter.
