To overcome lies in the heart, in the streets, in the books from the lullabies of the mothers to the news report that the speaker reads, understanding, my love, what a great joy it is, to understand what is gone and what is on the way. 


We sent the letter  below to our authors inviting them to share their thoughts and sentiments on the unthinkable times we are experiencing.

A few days ago, I stumbled across a gorgeous poem  that could not be more pertinent today. Yet, it was written by the deceased Turkish dissident and writer Nazim Hikmet a hundred years ago, during his imprisonment:
We are all suffering in these days, but no one is more capable than a writer of transforming these emotions into words, paragraphs, pages; and we have never been so needy. The entire world is focused on Italy which is, unfortunately, at the forefront of this global emergency. Let’s offer a taste of the extraordinary talent that I have the privilege to represent.

Va’ dove ti porta il cuore Susanna Tamaro

Winner of the Donna Citta di Roma 1994 prize and an international bestseller, Follow Your Heart is a profoundly moving and beautifully crafted meditation on existence. Driven by her fear of rapidly approaching death, an elderly woman decides to write a long letter to her granddaughter in the form of a diary. Part love letter and part confession, it is the legacy of an old woman finally brave enough to acknowledge that she has repressed her feelings and submitted to convention for far too long. Retelling her life story, she seeks to impart the wisdom that the only worthwhile journey is the journey to find the original voice hidden inside us.
