Wislawa Szymborska | Love at First Sight / Amore a prima vista

They’re both convinced
that a sudden passion joined them.
Such certainty is beautiful,
but uncertainty is more beautiful still.

Since they’d never met before, they’re sure
that there’d been nothing between them.
But what’s the word from the streets, staircases, hallways -
perhaps they’ve passed by each other a million times?

Jane DeDecker, 1961 | Figurative sculptor

Jane DeDecker has been sculpting the human figure for over thirty-five years. She seeks to capture moments that reveal truths about the human condition, that, when stripped down to their essence, are understood intrinsically.
As a figurative sculptor, she communicates emotional experience through lyrical compositions that move the viewer.
DeDecker’s sculptures stop life in mid-sentence - somewhere between inhaling and exhaling - and gives it form. She tells a story through the simple moments that imprint our lives and define us.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach | Quotes / Aforismi

18 Marzo ~ Giornata Nazionale in Memoria delle Vittime Covid-19

Quel giorno anche la mia città era deserta. Deserta di persone, di negozi, di vita!
Uscita con i miei barboncini, ero sola per la strada, sola con la paura e la tristezza. Non avrei mai pensato di vivere scene del genere.
La sera, il telegiornale trasmise la fila dei 70 camion militari che stava lasciando il cimitero di Bergamo per portare via i feretri delle vittime del coronavirus della prima ondata.
Tutto il mondo rimase scioccato di quella scena.

Il gabbiano Jonathan Livingston | Parte terza

"Jonathan è quel vivido piccolo fuoco che arde in tutti noi, che vive solo per quei momenti in cui raggiungiamo la perfezione" - Richard Bach.


Jonathan volteggiava lentamente sopra le Scogliere Remote, e osservava il suo discepolo. Fletcher Lynd, giovane e acerbo, era quasi perfetto come allievo. Era forte e leggero e veloce e, quel che più contava, era divorato dalla passione del volo.
Eccolo là che arriva, grigia piccola meteora, eccolo che esce da una picchiata, e sfreccia a centocinquanta miglia all'ora davanti al suo istruttore. Ed ecco che ora cabra repentino e tenta un mulinello verticale lento, in sedici movimenti staccati successivi. E li enumerava a uno a uno a voce alta, i vari passaggi da una fase all'altra.
- "…otto…nove…dieci…mamma mia come rallento…undici…vorrei poter frenare forte come te…dodici…mannaggia..noncelafopiù…tredici…'stiultimitremovimenti…quattor…aaaaak!"
