A casual meeting in library: Don't tell me YOU are afraid
Meetings in life are never dominated by casuality: if you think better, each of them gives you some teaching.
Last Saturday I had to go in the library of my little town and I told to myself to avoid to see books as always. As always, my sight was captured by a the title of a book written by Giuseppe Catozzella, that I didn't know yet. Later, I discovered the author was born in Milan not many years before me. I am reading it as the most starving reader in the world, despite I have to end The consequence of Love.
I am writing this post to remind to the audience of this blog, I hope many Polish people, specially some colleagues who don't know anything about the world around us but that they want give to the entire world, because I want that everybody knows about my feelings reading these two meetings I had had in this short time.
First of all, I was thinking that the title of Catozzella's novel is right: we can't have fear about anything when we know a little bit the stories of the people who cross the sea to achieve a dream or just a easy and more comfortable life.
Then, I am so curious how much far these two novels will take me, like the Achebe's trilogy took me: I am reading many essays about Things Fall Apart and my point of view is that, behind the really clear affirmation that Okonkwo's downfall is his own responsibility, there are many others topics to undeline: the struggle between old and new habits and ways of life, the differences between male and female in the world and in a particular way inside the human being: indeed, in each of us, there is a male and a female part; the main purpose of our own life is discovered them to know better who we are, as many philosophers already tell. Do you know who, pal?
I bet no. But you have the presumption to know everything about this world, when in reality you are just a small child who paly to be a big man.
A writer from my city, Edmondo De Amicis, said that: L'educazione d'un popolo si giudica dal contegno ch'egli tien per la strada. You can judge the education of a group of people from the behaviour they are in the street).
