Thoughts

Between a life we lived until a recent past, that is moving further away every day, and the life that we wish to live in a future that is harder to visualize every day. Between the need for isolation to avoid infection and the need for contact to accompany each other through fear. Between the first and immediate reaction to search for individual ways to take care of oneself and the subsequent understanding that it is impossible to find a way out without collective care, we are living in the transition. We are living between one thing or the other but in neither. We are living in between.

In times of coronavirus life in between becomes clearer, more defined, more definitive. And so, the consciousness of what is transitory, ungraspable, incontrollable, what we no longer have and what we do not have yet, is more demanding. It forces us to find, create, discover, invent, new compasses to navigate through a landscape with no margins to clearly mark the possible from the avoidable, the unavoidable from stubbornness, confidence from carelessness.

Adequacy

Human beings calm down when they believe-feel-think that they control their environment. Foreseeing the future, knowing in advance what will happen gives us the feeling of safety that calms the physiological reactions, shared with animals, as does the perception of danger: fight, flee, freeze.

Living

The human body teaches us that the secret to good health is in the joints, in the in-between, in the hinge that articulates the movements and the different functions necessary for life to flow.
