Gathering around water

Gathering around water

In the arid minerality of modern cities, people are drawn to water

reminder of times when settlers chose rivers and sea shores to build their towns

and caravans crossed deserts traveling from an oasis to another

 

Perhaps at the time already, places where to settle were not chosen only in function of their material wealth

but also for the beauty of the views they offered, inspiring generation after generation of people born in that place

 

It is the same thing in the inner landscape of our soul

we are drawn to large bodies of water, from where we draw strength and creativity

 

Like cities however, we sometimes cut ourselves from what matters the most to us

for dull militaristic or logistic reasons, because we are too afraid to take strolls out of our walls
