I honestly do not know what the essence of humanity is... I always see hate and violence, when I know through all the fibers of my body that it is all about love, acceptation, and respect of the Other who is us -- you and me and all of us humans.
—Gilles d'Aymery (e-mail to the author, December 2011).
(Swans - January 16, 2012)
and my friend paolo said
"tutto ciò che esiste è creatura"
all that exists is creature
tot ceea ce există e creatură
todo lo que existe es creatura
konoyoni arumono mina ikimono
alles was existiert, schoepfung ist
tudo aquilo que existe é criatura
tout ce qui existe est créature
a blade of grass
also a little shell of cicada
