Valeria, dear,

your account is moving and inspiring, all in the same time. Really, if something is to change our World in its deep it will be poetry, culture by and large, and kindness. The rage of profit-only mentality will never ever go so far.

As an almost-proverb says in Italy (after a song by our author-poet Fabrizio de André), the most beautiful flowers always sprout from where challenges are.



What a beautiful Dear sister Mauri. Happy for your comment.

The poesiaá my key for me to thrill the world.
Is the singing voice of my emotion.
It is registered with the rhythm lyrics tattooed on my heart.
