The places of silence

We always run.
We have trouble, limbs destroyed, head bursting.

We move frantically, in the cities, in our human relationships, we are conditioned by time, by the rush to arrive, to conclude, to reach a goal.

The arts and meditation have no time, they give it.

We are in competition, with colleagues, with relatives but also with people never known before.

We are always looking for something ephemeral, unreachable.

In our travels and Pindaric flights ambitions exceed reality, often creating unnecessary expectations.

Arts and meditation do not create expectations, they build bridges for the soul.


We do not take a proper break, a moment of peace, it is something we shy away from our daily routine.

We discard any positive engagement, a help, a friend, without even considering it, because we are too busy with our daily runs.

We do not find the time necessary for ourselves, because we dissipate it in useless expectations, ephemeral and fleeting as dreams.

Let's take our time, it's free!


To achieve our dreams we try to find them within us, with the calm and the necessary meditation.

We visit the interior, with the many tools we have available, meditation, yoga, love, prayer, music, reading, arts.

But above all we also visit our friends, reciprocity is the sublimation of the individual.

I luoghi del silenzio

Corriamo sempre.
Abbiamo l'affanno, le membra distrutte, la testa che scoppia.

Ci muoviamo frenetici, nelle città, nei nostri rapporti umani, siamo condizionati dal tempo, dalla fretta di arrivare, di concludere, di raggiungere un obiettivo.

Le arti e la meditazione non hanno tempo, lo donano.

Siamo in competizione, con i colleghi, con i parenti ma anche con persone mai conosciute prima.

Siamo sempre alla ricerca di qualcosa di effimero, di irraggiungibile.

Nei nostri viaggi e voli pindarici le ambizioni superano la realtà, creando spesso inutili aspettative.

Le Arti e la meditazione non creano aspettative, costruiscono ponti per l'anima.


Non ci prendiamo mai una giusta pausa, un momento di pace, è qualcosa che rifuggiamo dalla nostra routine quotidiana.

Scartiamo ogni aggancio positivo, un aiuto, un amico, senza averlo neanche preso in considerazione, perchè siamo troppo presi dalle nostre corse quotidiane.

Non troviamo il tempo necessario a noi stessi, perchè lo dissipiamo in inutili aspettative, effimere e fugaci come i sogni.

Prendiamoci il nostro tempo, è gratuito!


Per realizzare i nostri sogni proviamo a trovarli dentro di noi, con la calma e la meditazione necessaria.

Visitiamo l'interiore, con i molteplici strumenti che abbiamo a disposizione, meditazione, yoga, amore, preghiera, musica, lettura, Arti.

Ma soprattutto visitiamo anche i nostri amici, la reciprocità è la sublimazione dell'individuo.

Lovely artwork! It really looks like a place perfect to sit back a moment and reconnect with our souls, just listening to the silence that resonates within the walls and the sound of the wind through the branches of the trees. Is it inspired by a place you've visited? Btw Great read! :-)

I really love the composition of the first watercolour piece, Armando :) The very dark corner at the top left brings my eyes (and my mind) from a secret place inside of it, into the light of the garden where I suddenly feel like I can breathe, and be calm. It is a wonderful sensation !

I love those brick works off the arches so much ___ What a deft representation of the spaces we live in <3

And yea, we are always chasing time, these days, being busy, always on the go go go, not realising that we must take time to also cherish ourselves and each other, because through those moments, and only through those moments, we ..... live.

The second watercolour piece is lovely, too. A golden passage, where a figure is cycling with their dog :) It brings simple joy and happiness when I look at it <3
