Siamo noi e noi soltanto che determiniamo l’evolversi della nostra vita attraverso scelte ed azioni, ma ancor di più pensando, prima ancora che agendo. Questa mia personale raccolta di brevi riflessioni è incentrata soprattutto sul tema dei sentimenti e degli stati d’animo che quotidianamente proviamo, nei confronti di un disagio (disagio esistenziale e non sempre tangibile) figlio dei nostri giorni. Vi sono pensieri brevi ed altri più articolati, ma su tutto domina vibrante una ricerca introspettiva rivolta all’andare oltre le apparenze, distogliendo lo sguardo da tutto ciò che il mondo virtuale advert oggi rende meno semplice, o forse meno accessibile. Si tratta di una personale interpretazione della vita fatta in modo graziosamente precisato, senza pretendere di offrire nulla di più che un momento che sia soltanto di riflessione. Perché è proprio dal soffermarsi a riflettere, dal guardarci dentro, che ogni esperienza umana, positiva o negativa, trova nuovi, nitidi e curiosi significati oltre ogni, apparentemente immutabile, fatalismo.
