some 20min sketches using some old photos from 2018, when my body was lighter and my heart was heavier (as corny as it sounds :p)
i wish i could find a way to conciliate cycling and writing - i have all these ideas but the cooldown from the bike is too long to actually be able to take proper notes. i have so much stuff unwritten in my head, so here are three random thoughts i had lately:
1 - i was cycling back home and it started raining real bad, i got soaking wet and felt really good. a man was running to cross the street taking shelter under an inflatable boat and i laughed and felt home.
2 - a tiny dog was barking at all the cyclists passing by, right next to the saint seiya statue (the golden angel) and next to it stood a resigned middle aged man. i realized my thing with tiny dogs must be related to the fact that they always come with a person that gave up the fight next to them, because honestly who’s gonna take on the daily struggle to make a tiny dog less of a jerk;
3 - i’ve been coming up with random routes to get lost on purpose and then try to find my way home. one of these days i was feeling happy and free, because getting lost is a simple pleasure i enjoy very much, a particular way of getting to know the city, and this man screamed something at me and i felt afraid. as usual, i felt angry for being so sensitive to these things - there was a time i would see these men as just bafoons. then i remembered hanna arendt’s exhibit and realized i’m not afraid of that particular man, but of that thing described on the heart of darkness. once you realize the human nature is capable of cruelty, even the bafoons, it’s sad and scary. it’s colonel kutz’ monologue. that’s the shit i resent. i used to say i’d never turn bitter - i know now i don’t have to fear that, i am not capable of bitterness, i am genetically configured for resilient optimism. but there was a time i wasn’t scared.
Ed eccoci qui, alla fine di questi meravigliosi giorni, io e te compagne del passare del tempo. Ti chiedo scusa se ti ho fatto sentire quanto è fastidiosa la sabbia, o se ti ho portato in mezzo al mare leggermente incazzato a guardare quel maledetto pellicano che proprio non vuole farsi prendere, se ti ho buttata un po' di qua e un po' di là e le svegliacce alle 5 ( a volte anche 4.30) di mattina per poi trovare le nuvole. Hai riempito il mio tempo, mi hai insegnato ad aspettare in un modo così perfetto. Credo che sia l'inizio di un amore piccola Niky ❤️
