    Hey, dude!


    How is life going for ya?

    Over there and over here, we have been walking so many paths. So colorful are the ways which take us, bring us and allow us to encounter each other.


    You know, buddy, the journey is long and to live up together is why we look for one another. And we go on charming, captivating each other, like family, lines crowding up here and there, in the delicacy of the findings life offers.

    We are like that: brothers and sisters of this line of steps that nevers ends, but that starts from the inside, there in the heart of the questions.


    Yeah, pal, we are the ones to spin and weave this big network which exchanges, seeks, nurtures, reflects and comforts. It’s ours this steps which dares, tries, trusts, breathes, connects, warms up and serves.

    It’s our stories we walk the runaway, of joy, dreams, friendship and horizons. And we are so, so, so many…


    We are all of these who celebrate the same ground of living encounters, making laughs, and sowing complicity, and sprouting hugs and tie the bonds, just as very warmly as cosiness is, and the certitude of which we need.


    And it’s because we deserve each other, buddy, that we discover each other. In this courage to trust openly, that way without holding back, because the space is that of the essence, the thirst is that of the truth of one, two, three, many. And the good party is that one where we find together a beautiful rhythm of walking.



    And is it not for that we encounter each other: to laugh together and to serve together? In the joy of exchanging treasures and hardships, and to feel oneself at home because it is here where the presence thrives what the voice comments up.


    And this is the way we want to feel each other very soon. To open the party of so many lived paths, to share, to nurture, to hug and to celebrate. To experiment the art of being together.
