Delle divinità e degli umani

Quando la morte se ne va, la vita non ritorna. Dobbiamo cercarla, dobbiamo imparare a camminare di nuovo, a respirare, a vivere in società. La ferita è scritta nella storia, incisa nella memoria. Dobbiamo poi tornare alla vita, nascere una seconda volta e vedere emergere dal passato ricordi nascosti, e allora il momento fatale diventa sacro. Abbandoniamo il profano quando frequentiamo gli dei, e quando torniamo tra i vivi nel mondo reale, la storia diventa mito.

Of deities and men –When death goes away, life does not return. We must look for it, we must learn to walk again, to breathe again, to live in society. The wound is written in history, engraved in memory. We must then return to life, be born a second time and see emerge from the past hidden memories, and then the fatal moment becomes sacred. We abandon the profane when we get involved with the gods, and when we go back with the living people in the real world, history becomes myth.

Des Divinités et des Hommes – Quand la mort s’éloigne, la vie ne revient pas. Il faut la chercher, réapprendre à marcher, à respirer, à vivre en société. La blessure est écrite dans l’histoire, gravée dans la mémoire. Il faut alors revenir à la vie, naître une deuxième fois et voir surgir le temps caché des souvenirs et l’instant fatal devient sacré. On quitte le profane quand on côtoie les Dieux, et lorsqu’on retourne chez les vivants, l’histoire se transforme en mythe.
