A BONE TO BE WILD

Sometimes things don’t go our way. Sometimes the wind comes and makes the cards fly. And you start chasing them, you catch some of them, you lose sight of some, and you do with what you have left, lopsided castles, that nothing is enough to knock them down, and you are afraid even to breathe. Sometimes it’s the rain that gets your cards wet. It is a rain that fades. A cold rain, which enters the bones. There is no remedy. And you think back to when everything was warmer, to your mother holding you tight. Sometimes a compliment was enough to get blood to your face. And you felt your skin burn. To a kiss, but not just any kiss, to that kiss. On certain summer evenings that never ended. To a girl who is now fifty. And to the wind that has ruffled who knows how many castles. And she rebuilds them every time. With the cards that remain.
We are the descendants of the savage women you have forgotten. We are the stories you think would never be taught. They would have had to check the ashes of the women they buried alive so that a single ember was enough to bring an entire fire back to life. We don’t like to admit it, but the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčlosing control is one of those that fascinates controlled people like us more than anything else. All truly civilized peoples – the ancients no less than us – have become civilized thanks to the voluntary repression of the original animal self. Are we really, in this room, very different from the Greeks or the Romans? Obsessed with duty, pietas, loyalty, sacrifice? All those things, in short, that impress moderns? And it is a temptation for any intelligent person, and especially for perfectionists like the ancients and us, to try to kill the primitive, emotional, animal ego. But it is a mistake. Because it is dangerous to ignore the existence of the irrational. The more civilized a person is, the more intelligent he is, the more he will be repressed: and the more he will need a system to channel the primitive impulses that have been so much studied to kill. Otherwise those powerful ancient forces will accumulate and become of such intensity as to be released violently, with greater violence due to the wait, and will often have such vigor as to completely wipe out the will.
When you take a wild horse from the herd, your every little movement takes on enormous significance for him, and if by chance his sensitivity is disturbed, he becomes skittish and unavailable … Here, this horse now feels at his own comfortable like this, it passes and leaves no trace, but you do …… you know how to approach him …. you know how to let him approach you because you are of the same substance and he knows it too …….. .you can caress his skin with your little hand, and he will not run away from you, but he will shake his head and happy mane, then he will resume running knowing that you will follow him with your eyes until he disappears on the horizon .. ..My hand is so little…

PLANT TREES

If you have a garden it is very important to plant trees. I know you love and flowers and you want a flower garden but if you plant trees you can save the planet. This happens because trees help combat global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide and contribute to cleaning the air, taking in pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxides. All this thanks to their respiration and photosynthesis processes. So you can plant your flowers in pots or wooden boxes near your home and in the garden plant trees to save the planet. It is really important.
Trees have the ability to purify the air of our cities through their foliage and their foliage. The factors that produce this benefit reside in the density of the foliage, in the ability to capture dust through hairy leaves, high percentage of stomata, roughness of the trunks, longevity of the species. Trees are perfect allies in this fight against fine particles, effective against fine and ultrafine particles such as PM10, PM2.5 and below, becoming indispensable in heavily polluted cities and along busy roads. Trees have the ability to fix and neutralize polluting gases from anthropogenic emissions, thus becoming a benefit for our health.
Trees have the ability to purify water, through the phytodepuration process, with soil improvement, capable of intercepting organic compounds but also hydrocarbons and heavy metals. The roots form the heart of these plants through filtering and purification. For example, the poplars, willows and alders along rivers and wetlands, in addition to making these places green and rich in biodiversity, have the ability to create buffer strips against pollution and therefore able to improve water quality. . Same thing in a city environment where urban forests represent a filter for polluting waters that are gradually purified through the root systems.
