      entering the forest is the contestation of every other wor(l)d. this is reality. 

      to be able to tell you that it is not like that, that yes, it is similar but different. 

      entering the forest is practicing corresponding in a very similar manner

      but slightly different

      to what we know.


      a practice is something I do and that I can repeat 

      and I keep repeating it even if it doesn't work all the time.


      as repetition without difference it's almost impossible 

      every time I repeat it I don't know what to expect exactly.

      a practice it is an operation

      like + or  x = the same operation leads to infinite results.


      a practice is something you cannot consume

      it's an ontological anticapitalistic shift in which to have faith

      it's something you keep staying with because it is important

      and it is important because I decided so

      or because it's important for me


      and we must be attentive. 

      make this revolution.


      dear you,

      I wanted to tell you that it's me, that if you don't manage at school you are not wrong, the school wasn't ready yet, it's me that has to find another way. and that seeing beauty it's a responsibility I choose to take.

      as I choose loving you even if it doesn't work or you are far away.

      loving is like praying or going harvesting wild herbs in the woods: it means going back to repetition. 

      it is a practice, an anticapitalist ontological shift in which to have faith.

      a practice cannot be consumed. 

      as are my words for you. 

      you see?


      can we go harvesting camomile once together? or any other plant if you prefer; just because of the doing of it.

      that is like writing to you.




      "the real word for world is forest" is the title of a book from Ursula Leguin
