Greetings & Expectations.

As the festive season approaches and thoughts of ‘decorating’ the tree or even your home bring palpitations. We remember years gone by when our home was filled with family & close friends, all adding to the wonderful atmosphere and the hopes of better times ahead.  This year sadly my wife & I will be alone, … Read more

Autumn

In Autumn you can understand the reasons of a whole year. Different colours are tuned together, different beings and things match perfectly: this is the picture I have in mind. Thousands of words are ready to be spoken. The real world-natural world says it better with silence.   0

What my eyes see

What my eyes see goes to form my mood. Faced with something harmonious, it also harmonizes my spirit. Without conceptual filters, without aesthetic canons. It is a simple and natural bliss: like an anticipation of paradise. Today begins the second wave of containment. There could be no better contrast. For three weeks we will not … Read more

Protection

The sense of protection that I feel coming from nature reassures me totally; it is a life insurance policy. Safety on life is something inherent in nature; it is part of the project. There is no comparison with our small means: police, army, laws, hospitals, insurance companies, mafias and a thousand other points of support. … Read more

My last hike

During my last hike, I arrived at a mountain pasture (Costaro, 45.907059, 10.269950) only because I was told that there was a centuries-old chestnut tree. I had been there the last time about 40 years ago and with my great surprise, I had seen in the middle of the meadow a martagon lily. The chestnut … Read more

Music

I’ve decided to show some respect to a 300-year-old Bohemian composer and play his concerto PROPERLY. That means daily practice and for lazy me, that’s a tall order indeed. 0

Evening light

Sometimes, even a habitual landscape, which you see every day, can be surprising: everything is as it was yesterday, a month ago, as it will be tomorrow. Yet a thousand things have changed: the sky is overcast, there is no wind, the water is a mirror, the gaze runs here and there and doesn’t get … Read more
