September 2021

Obviously, this is not the most appropriate place— if ever there really is one—to consider more or less pessimistically that our life will never be the same again. I occupy, perhaps undeservedly, this space to pay a small tribute to my favourite month of the year and, above all, to spend time fiddling with some images of my narrow everyday world and with the waves of words and thoughts that are playing on my mind and I just wonder if I could share them with you.
Meditation is not evasion; it is a serene encounter with reality.
The best mediation is effortless.
The best meditation is a gentle awareness.
I believe that reading and writing are the most nourishing forms of meditation anyone has so far found.
By reading the writings of the most interesting minds in history, we meditate with our own minds and theirs as well.
This to me is a miracle.
Every morning is a fresh beginning.
Every morning is a fresh beginning.
There will come a time when we believe everything is finished; that will be the beginning.
Sometimes we can only find our true direction when we let the wind of change carry us.

"Saying nothing sometimes says the most."
(Emily Dickinson)
When you have nothing to say, say nothing...

“Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch.”
(Hans Christian Andersen)
“When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.”
(Albert Einstein)
The last sunflowers...
The last sunflowers...
These can be defined as the last sunflowers of the summer, although, in a way, they are also the first sunflowers of autumn.
Almost everything is relative, very few things have an absolute dimension.
Then, as always, there are unpredictable exceptions that do not always confirm the rules.
The vision of our reality depends, at least in large part, on the perspective in which we place ourselves.
The first breath of autumn is in the air, a prodigal feeling, a feeling of wanting, taking, and keeping before it is too late.
An unpretentious butterfly...
An unpretentious butterfly...
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
-Nathaniel Hawthorne-
Just as not all butterflies produce a hurricane, not all outbreaks of bubonic plague produce a Renaissance.

Every day, during this month of September, I will try to share with the visitors of this photo gallery some pictures and some little stories of my daily life.
In case you are curious to also see the images of the previous days, instead of taking a look only at the most recently posted photo
For me, serendipity, coincidence and chance are more interesting than any preconceived construct of our human encounters.
Coincidence may be described as the chance encounter of two unrelated causal chains which - miraculously, it seems - merge into a significant event.
Illusion is an anodyne, bred by the gap between wish and reality.
Illusion is often based on reality. The boundary between the two can be very thin when we are aware of it.
Some see a hopeless end, while others see an endless hope.
“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honour, duty, mercy, hope.”
(Winston Churchill)
“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it.”
(Thomas Woodrow Wilson)
