I would like to personally thank (and perhaps I will do it privately, since you are certainly not very numerous) all the visitors who have kept me company regularly during this journey, made of images and words that has ferried us all through the last days of this year, now running out, up to the threshold of this new January, now so close.
Years are time conventions, they are a set of moments, they are many things.
The years are the texture that holds together the fabric of time, intertwined with seasons and events.
I could tell you that in the coming year everything will be different, that there will be twice Christmas and light all year round.
I could tell you, but for what purpose? Illusions don't help that much and make the inevitable awakenings only more disappointing.
What are you saying? Am I unnecessarily pessimistic?
I humbly allow myself to disagree.
One of the few and therefore sublime precious freedoms that are granted to us is the ability to know how to continue to ask ourselves questions, without letting us suggest them.
I see a source of healthy optimism in continuing to think using our heads and, above all, taking responsibility for ourselves.
In addition to the ability to ask questions to others, but above all to ourselves, it seems to me important to exercise kindness, as a method for dealing with and resolving conflicts, and courage, as an essential civil virtue and an instrument of change.
I dwelt and, at this point, either you fell asleep staring at this useless web page, or you quickly fled elsewhere, relegating me to oblivion with a click.
But as the only justification I can say that, having finished my simple project of posting a photo a day in this gallery which started on December 1st, I will be absent from PBase for a time whose duration I still cannot evaluate.
A break, to devote myself to other things and not get imprisoned in something repetitive.
Anyone who wants to contact me for various reasons can always find a way, either through my website or by email. I will always be pleased.
I enjoyed composing a graphic image, for the end of this gallery, using bits of my photos.
A path awaits us to walk.
As with any journey, it is not the final destination that matters most, but the journey itself.
Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
