"I love every waving
thing, there are waves in my soul" (F.
I love every restless soul, every voyager and pilgrim, every
knight who has the courage to sail outremer, I love all the
things who are deeply in touch with the watery ondulating
substance. The water can give birth and death, we can find
rest and eternal regeneration, harmony and ancestral force.
My grandfather was a mariner and my eyes reflect all that
endless moving watery surface.
As long as our waving souls will be carried by the flowing,
every time a new seashore will be seen at the horizon, anytime
a deep pain, a new love, a great spiritual discovery will
mark our lives ATARAXIA's path will be a mystic voyage.
Our minds are "mystic locations", a seashore full
of shells representing all the collected places, persons,
moments, sensations we had in our lives. Every time we play
and create we begin walking in that dreamy beach, to swim
in holy waters to perceive and get in touch more deeply with
all the people we knew and loved, the ones who are gone and
the ones who are far from us lost in Time and Space.
This mythic place, this seashore and oceanic surface is the
key of our existence, every time I was wandering over there
Death and Life came to take me by hand, to make me understand
that I'm nothing but a weak passenger of life.
Sometimes I would like to be cut-off from the world in front
of the sea, in complete stillness to vanish in the foam, in
the "inner intimate landscape" of the memory.
This is the substance and ultimate meaning of this collection
"The child and the girl are walking together along
the sea shore.
They are exactly the same, creatures fallen from the sky..."
