Now, close your eyes and imagine. Do you see the sunset? Leave your room and, hand in hand with your partner, take some relaxed steps towards the panoramic terrace. Just a few meters and you are inundated by the light of the rays now falling of that ball on fire that plays hide and seek with the horizon. Its warmth touches your face softly and gives new shades of gold to your hair. Breathe this sparkling and pure air.

You are now going to the table in the middle of the panoramic terrace, sitting on the comfortable chairs. Close your eyes. Take a beathe. Your mind is emptied, thoughts and worries leave you. Take a breathe. A light breeze gives you a gentle pat on the shoulder. Take a breathe.

Now open your eyes again.

Here, in front of you, the magic of the stones opens up. It leaves you unfailingly breathless and impresses like an indelible memory in your minds

About Tania Ferronato

I am a linguist and I love phonology, travels and food. My greatest passion is writing. I love the feeling that I have when finding myself in front of a blank sheet: it is the same feeling of waiting to take a plane or a train to start a journey. Excitement, curiosity and the desire to free my mind and my heart to new horizons. Writing is like traveling: leaving towards unexplored limits and unknown destinations and always returning different from the beginning.
