Menù alla carta

Summer

[…] Taste the flavors, listen to their sweet “melody,” add them to your taste board, or update the pieces you already have. Do not stop looking for new stimuli, not only for the palate, and therefore in the kitchen, but in everything you do, even if it is not your habit.

Follow your passions, the ones you feel in your belly and dream in your mind; the ones that, when you feed them, give meaning to your presence in this world. Feel your body and do not judge yourself but always accept yourself as the sweet accepts the bitter.

Open not only your mouth but your spirit. Expand your chest and diaphragm, breathe in new air, nature. Bring your ideals into focus and give them voice. Put dots not to end sentences, but to start new ones.

There is nothing that ends in the long journey of a life.
It is just a succession of things that, cyclically, though in different ways, recur, begin again, develop and come to an end. But just when it seems that everything ends here actually approaches a new beginning.

To turn the page is not to erase and forget overnight, but it is to have run out of space and to look for new space to continue writing the sentences of one’s life. It is not living, but feeling alive. […]
