The compositional writing declines by analogy fragments of the natural world, the path is inscribed in the language of the body, otherwise untranslatable and the self becomes only the point of origin of the vision. The first roots of this work slip into a book; the Summer of the Hill, by J.A.Baker, a bizarre and mysterious English writer who tells and describes only nature. His gaze is placed on the smallest manifestation, up to the dizzying greatness that includes it.

« What is nature that loves to create, where death. Similar to the border of the world in the center of a nonexistent landscape, the desire to create forms. The silence is thick, reading the notes of a piano in the distance. Like the flowers in the meadow, the themes of all time are peeping out. The dress like a sky or a land, the color pattern with imprecise contours, the sign of a porosity of the soul. Dear spectator I offer you my path, mirror reflection of a celestial song.  »
