Blue Magic

An age of chivalry in a snow-white rose
born of an attainable, noble sublimity
of wandering
not only to escape
or to envision a different view
but to embrace its intuitive inevitability,
like a confined premonition of musical purity,
an emotional appeal to invisible affinities,
challenging the physical limits of a frozen landscape,
restoring the revival of all mutual bonds,
the unrecorded history of inner senses and tangible chords,
Though vibrantly synchronized by shared empathy.


Instant or Delayed …Gratification?

We have all become so anxious and so restless to get what we want. No matter if it’s something or someone, we want them right away only to discover that the next minute we actually want something or somebody completely different and then…surprise!...we find ourselves discontent again… and again… and again … Everything we want has to be available and, if possible, only one button push away. There’s no patience and, what’s even worse, there is no satisfaction either.

Back in the old days people would wait years and years to get something or someone. And they used to value everything they had obtained through perseverance, hard work and sacrifices. Nowadays, getting has become an individual race and before we know it… we become trapped, stuck on a roller coaster of countless wishes, so numerous and so trivial there’s no wonder they are all meaningless and therefore so easy to replace or throw away… This speedy ride makes it impossible for us to see the truly important aspects of our life.

Still, some people will always prefer quality to quantity. They will have fewer but bigger-size dreams and they will be willing to make efforts, to take time to walk, to stop and notice the infinite universe and its amazing diversity of choices. And, unlike the others, they will know what or who they really want (and deserve) and learn how to ignore the rest…


Selective Silence

A free earwitness
coming a long way out of the nutshell
Running away for nights
in the opposite direction of wave sounds
unstoppable, undefeatable, untamed
with an exuberance able to either eradicate or exile
any triumph of weakness, any cancellation of pride,
to feel safe. I am surrendering myself
to your calm indifference
implanted by an insecure doubter
too skeptical
to exonerate the vandalism of noise
through absence
for the strength of an invincible tone
a signature visual code
framing the secret turns and returns
overlooking the overheard
before the galloping sundown spreads over
sharing a quiet recollection
of mentally and emotionally mute signs
in a language
deafened by pure choice...
Choosing not to hope
becomes worse than despair sometimes.


Small Bites of Collective Truths

Today’s food for thought has to do with this self-discovery journey taking us from birthday to something which is supposed to be our life, an amazing result of both circumstances and choice. So, how can we reach our best destination if nothing is mapped for us, when everything is literally possible and very often so unpredictable that it catches us unprepared and so vulnerable?

Each day, we are who we are, we do what we do and we say what we say. We don’t do and don’t say some things. And we have our – most sacred or top secret – reasons to justify them. We may feel things we don’t know anything about. And we sometimes have to admit we cannot control them. We have dreams and most of the time we have to give some of them up in order to move on. We strongly believe in the unseen and the untouchable and we pretend that we cannot see or touch things which are so real instead … We may keep memories alive even when they hurt, even when it’s against their will and our wellbeing…

Then why are we always overanalyzing everything, especially what cannot be changed? I mean, of course we should try to understand what motivates our actions, what causes our decisions but only before our choices are made … As soon as the words have been said and the deeds have been done why would we keep staring back ?! On the contrary, I believe we had better trust our own judgement and our reasons back then and there without too much questioning, explaining and regretting when it's already too late and (too) useless...and accept everything the way it is. For the supreme truth, the ultimate one is we are all unprepared and vulnerable. But we ought to find a little faith inside at least … In the end, we will have to look back and, while checking if there has been a paradox in the ignorant perceptions, ignored realities, individual frailties, shameful cowardice and masochistic options, there will be plenty of time to understand it all.

Including the fact that we cannot be or have everything.
