Come se fosse
Talking to Roberta put me in a condition where facing my emotions became urgent and inevitable. Representing the indissoluble bond of life and death without falling into banal stereotypes is an arduous and continuous challenge. And it is similarly arduous attempting to catch flashes of vitality in the pain and suffering of body and mind.
Life in death, death in life.
Meeting Roberta inevitably raises the question on the sense of life and become for me an inner dialog with the unpredictability and precariousness of existence. It is a deep emotional comparison with the fear of loss and nothingness, feelings that I know well and a sort of personal training to the acceptance of death. It is not easy accepting death as a part of life and similarly it is not easy to accept the Roberta’s journey has come to an end, it is time to go.
