What I would like to tell my children

It is those who take upon themselves
to choose their own path
Who must learn to focus the mind's eye
Form a clear view
Of what has been
And a vision of what may be
Both here and deeper down

Most are happy
To wade aimlessly in the shallows
With blurry sight
Or stray, with no sense of direction
Or simply follow

Lago

Pioggia e vento non sono né bene né male
È sufficiente aspettare con pazienza
Finché torna la quiete
Specchio
Organismo liquido
Vivo, nel ciclo del dare e ricevere

La tua forma è definita da ciò che ti circonda

Mountain

You do not conquer the mountain.
The mountain conquers you.

If you show respect, it will teach you self respect.

It will punish your arrogance and reward your perseverance and humility.

It harbours life, and will take lives.

Ask it questions of yourself. Its challenge will reveal you what you are.

It will give you the solitude you seek, and the silence, and timeless strength.

Resta appena solo il tempo

per ciĆ² che conta

When you no longer feel the need to name your feelings

as they come and go

but simply feel

that is when you come alive

Un altro giorno,

un altro colpo di remo

un'altra spinta

l'acqua si apre e si richiude, liquida

traiettorie che non lasciano tracce

Abbiate pazienza,

non ho scelto io di vivere.

Non sono nato, mi hanno nato.

Ora e' troppo tardi per non esistere.

Faccio del mio meglio, a fatica.
