6. Taiga’s Winter * Inverno nella Taiga

It’s the magic of some moments, the one that, when you least expect it, resurfaces and scratch memory and heart! Maybe it’s shrewd, observing, quietly, while snow falls all around us. And every flake, every crystalline star, every shiver through the leaves… rouse us from being engulfed from the usual daily normality. I’m wandering between memories and dreams, picking fragile leaves of certainties crumble under the thick layer of ice. Then I hear the music, sweet, panacea for all evil, I’m inebriated with new emotions and so many memories! Like a breath, then, the Dvořák’s cello concerto, then the gaze wanders over the giant firs, snow-covered. The third movement, dragging me in the impetus, while the fear melts along the edges of the unknown.

È la magia di certi momenti, quella che, quando meno te lo aspetti, riaffiora e graffia la memoria e il cuore! Forse è sagace, l’osservare, in silenzio, mentre la neve cade attorno a noi. E ogni fiocco, ogni stella cristallina, ogni brivido tra le fronde… ci riscuote dall’inabissarsi consueto nella normalità del giorno. Vago, errando tra ricordi e sogni, raccogliendo fragili foglie di certezze sbriciolate sotto la spessa coltre di ghiaccio. Poi odo la musica, soave, panacea a ogni male, m’inebrio di nuove emozioni… e tanti ricordi! Come un respiro, dunque, il concerto per violoncello di Dvořák, poi lo sguardo vaga oltre gli abeti giganti, innevati. Il terzo movimento mi trascina nell’impeto, mentre la paura si scioglie lungo i bordi dell’ignoto.
