I return after a hiatus to let anyone interested know that I am ok and my country is behaving with exceptional sensitivity, sensibility and dedication, of which I am very proud.
My thread’s caption is dedicated to a fistful of members who I know more or less personally, and to a universal feeling that should keep us all united beyond any temptation to judge, make lists, compare.
Ciao to Chris, to his wonderful pics of very live events; ciao to Haim, my 1-year-older twin from Illinois, an antipodal but excellent type of photographer and a lucid, smart friend. To Mark, who did the most amazing thing I could imagine:
He built this Telecaster as an exercise and then sent it to me as a present from North Carolina. I spend time on it, turning into a 25 years old again, being happy. Thanks Mark, you’re a super special guy and Silvia, parents, Giacomo & Greta kiss you.
To Nigel, who is the most interesting among the weird people I know. He knows what pain is, and that makes him a respectable guy. I sometimes have had misunderstandings with his alter ego, but his Bruce Wayne identity is a sensitive and lucky guy, with a precious wife and cool kids. Whatever he may think, I still like him even when he enters the phone booth, changes into HH and frees his sarcastic side. I love sarcasm, that’s the point.
Ciao to Mr Dane, whose patience, balance and serene spirits have managed a hundred times times to keep me here or making me come back. Thanks, R.
This was about friendship. I suppose that is the most valuable goods we need now. Take care all of you, and be patient.
