Passion for man made structures, often abandoned, in partial or complete decay.

I ask questions

I ask a lot of questions, I am an explorer, I travel a lot, I travel by sea, I travel by air, I prefer to travel on foot. I don’t like to do it alone though, I feel bad when I am alone, it’s like the world placing a stigma on you.
I don’t eat anybody, I just stare and look, I look around for those that won’t eat me.
If I was a king I would order peace, I would impose respect to everyone, I would treat all women like mothers and all men like children, because children are sacred like mothers. What would you ask a mother, what does a children want?
And if the sun dies, I would lit it up again and ask it to shine for those who smile. I would lit it up for the most beautiful smile I have ever seen, the smile of motherhood. I would build a miniature world where only the things we want to happen will happen. We can build a world like that.
I would make a “good idea hour” each day, where we can tell each other how great are the ideas we have and everyday there will be the king or queen of good ideas.
We would have the antidote to those down days where everything seems grey and every day the officer of anti-down would be designated and he will call the password, the keyword that changes everything and brings light back.
Everyday there will be the moment of questions and listening, where we make silence to listen to the others, because that is what makes everyone happy.

Their own absence

[…] Three hypothesis are taken into consideration about the inhabitants of Bauci: they hate the Earth; they respect it to the degree of avoiding any contact with it; they love it as it was before they came and therefore, with telescopes and binoculars aiming down, they will never get tired of browsing it, leaf by leaf, rock by rock, ant by ant, contemplating in awe, their own absence. Italo Calvino, “Le Citt√† Invisibili”

Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see -egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be ready to fight the enemy you can see. – Imamul Ghazaly (1057-1110)
