Moments (1)-January ’20 [1,2,3,4]

“Moments” are short posts of a rather “poetic – existential” taste

JANUARY 2020:


[1] Rain and predators

** It is said that when it is raining we have a good sleep fro many reasons. One of them has to do with an ancient collective memory of our species, from the times we were running to survive unable yet to violate the planet.

** This memory says that when it is raining several predators do not go to prey on other species. So the sound and the sense of rain were generating to our distant ancestors a kind of safety and were able to enjoy some sleep in calmness. Today, still having this collective memory, we relax, feel feel sleepy and enjoy sleeping when it is raining.

** However, what happens when several predators in our days have learned how to wear first quality raincoats? When through evolution they have plasticize their skin or have devised techniques to cope with rain? When they are happy we relax unsuspecting because they can rush to devour us?

** Should we imagine in our inner reality more rain to calm ourselves? And if our inner reality floods and we drown? And if so much rain becomes big rivers of tears and we dry up? And if we think we are safe but in fact we are being devoured? – as if we are eating broken glass thinking that we are eating soft bread…  What happens now that the predators of this world became so many, so perfectly disguised and so indifferent about our rain?


[2] No weapons

*Life and time work together so that comes one moment in which “teeth” are swept away and what remains is only an open mouth without weapons…

*Is it a mouth crying? – most probably,”yes, it is”, one would say

*However, maybe it is a mouth just enjoying singing, even without teeth – why not? who knows…


[3] Empty nest

Sometimes the nest remains empty. The one who stays feels what he feels – he anyway feels something, it is not so important what exactly he feels.

**What is mostly important to note is that the other who goes away (no matter whether he wants to leave or not) feels something else, very different, even if the two kinds of feelings may look somewhat similar to each other.


[4] Mirror?

**Ready to fly or just being happy and proud in front of some imaginary mirror?
