How the force
of gravity
attracts our bodies

to the emptiness without making any difference, the same force but in reverse, I feel when touching the rock with my hands. When climbing up those peaks, so high that when you are up there, you realize that you have not yet reached the highest, until you get back down.
Since I was a teenager, I fell in love with the mountain, with nature, with each and every one of those few redoubts where the human being has not yet stepped on.
In the life of a human being, the average life oscillates in something less than about 33,000 days. If it were up to me, I would try to spend as much time as possible on my trip in the mountains! What do you think about it?
And I arrive at that inevitable but real and pragmatic conclusion: life is short, very short. And it is only through generosity that we take away his end, that we make it eternal.
If for a moment we stop to think, there are many things that are important. But essential, only two: life and time. And that's when sometimes I look back and see that child playing or riding a bicycle and surprised and restless I wonder: how fast is this not?
