In the flow of time
In the stream of time, a crucial step is to achieve – as Valente wrote – through the creative writing process a greater, more complete knowledge of what surrounds us and which, visible or not, becomes clearer. The current collection was created during two different periods, but in the same place, in Niglath, a small village in the heart of the Himalayas. Immediately the important role of the landscape and in it the flow that has its own sound (the voice) becomes clear. Sometimes it is an oracle, sometimes it is the voice of conscience or ultimately the voice that suggests the transcendent. But it is always a current that in its movement, in its peaceful or stormy course – real or symbolic – refers to life and gives continuity and rhythm to the cycle.
