Moments (9)- September ’20 [22, 23]

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


[22] 🌚  Promises

**Now that quarantine is mostly over, what shall we do with all those with whom we were very honestly saying “Yes, yes, of course, we are undoubtedly going to meet after the lockdown, there are so may things to say…” How many of all those people are we in fact going to meet?

**And, how many of them we shall truly wish and need to see, now that they do not look so fascinating and interesting as they seemed on the background of the quarantine.

**Against that background we had forgotten for a while that, even before the pandemic, we were meeting with most of them very, very rarely – and often not so enthusiastically.

**And finally what to do with that “other” inner quarantine, persisting even before the pandemic? What to do with that deeper isolation of our times that knows very well how to spread silently inside our being, beyond pandemics and lockdowns and our colourful social media?

[23] Even being called Nobody is still a name

** It is not that I do not like my name. It is very ok. It sounds good, its short. A name like any other name, without symbolising anything special or carrying hidden meanings.

** But I would honestly feel also very happy with any other name that I was given when I entered in this world – they gave me a name as well as so many other things about which I was never asked if I wanted them…

** To avoid the reality of this world is impossible. Even the name Nobody (the name of the Cyclop who met Odysseus) is still a name.

** So let us attempt to shape the givens accompanying us since our birth as best as we can, so that we may step in our course with at least some beautiful moments – always within the constraints of our own construction.
