1. Beautiful photography and very true words, Mario. Out of our sadness and grief comes wonderful creativity for artistic and literary works. I am probably a more optimistic type than you, yet I have also had and have moments of grief, loss, fear, sadness and anger. It is then that I get more creative. I think it happens to us all, whether brilliant creators or very modest ones like me. I am also an empath, so when someone suffers this feeling immediately resonates with me. And I like the Johari window and its mirrors. I am currently reading Catalan writer Mercè Rodoreda’s book entitled A Broken Mirror which I strongly recommend: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/451102.A_Broken_Mirror?rating=1
    As for T.S.Eliot, whose poem I also love, I think we are now in a new Wasteland. I wonder what sort of poem he would write in our current times.

    • Thank you for your words. Yes, from this time, new perspectives and thoughts come to the fore. Kindly, a scientist wrote that she loved my metaphor given an illness she has and therefore has questioned science. I will look at the book you mention. Yes, this is a new Wasteland, which will put a lot of people at risk. I was listening to the national public radio station and aligned with a story that was being stated. The effects of COVID have not been fully expressed even by those who haven’t gotten the disease. The outcome will not be known for years, I am afraid. But, we are blessed not to have encountered the killer that it is. Finally, a God that is invisible and that which is invisible to the human eye, but which is surely there. I am inclined to believe everything, for everything is the truth, not one side or the other. The coin of the realm has two sides and the weight of coin is not inequitable. They are the same.

      • You are welcome and, yes, agreed. A coin has always two sides. However, sometimes we must choose which side to stand on, which is not an easy thing to do. Yes, let us believe in this invisible God. Wish you a Merry Christmas.
