“… Sono qui che galleggio attorno al mio barattolo di latta,
Lontano sopra la Luna,
Il pianeta Terra è blu
E non c’è niente che io possa fare”

Space Oddity | David Bowie

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do
Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you…
Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Empatia

Pensando alla situazione gravissima in cui abbiamo ridotto il nostro ecosistema mi sono chiesta  cosa potrebbe guarirlo. La prima parola che mi è venuta in mente è stata “Empatia”. Il “sentire dentro”, la capacità di comprendere appieno l’altro, vestendo i suoi panni con coscienza e rispetto, sia esso umano, animale o vegetale. Avere la capacità di predisporsi benevolmente e di calarsi nel tutto, perché il mondo non finisce a due passi davanti a noi, ma tutto è collegato. Possiamo vivere se tutto ciò che ci contiene vive, facciamo parte di esso, come esso fa parte di noi.


Thinking about the extremely serious situation in which we brought our ecosystem I wondered what could heal it. The first word that came to my mind was “Empathy”. The “feeling inside”, the capacity of understand fully the other, putting ourselves in his shoes with conscience and respect, be it human, animal or vegetal. Being able to prepare oneself benevolently and really be in the whole, because the world does not end in front of us, but everything is related. We can live if the whole that contains us lives, we are part of it, like it is part of us.
