Unfinished is entering a somewhat childish dimension. It means remaining in that volatility of children, who are obsessed with one thing for three days, after which their interest is exhausted and they move on to something else.
I like being passionate about projects, passion is so important, I like the initial push. Instead, closing something I see it as the end, not a healthy fulfilment, but rather a “now it’s all over”.
If I tell you Unfinished, what comes to your mind?
Unfinished is entering a somewhat childish dimension. As a child I drew a lot, I was a precocious child, and I found a lot of notebooks with one mark per page because I started from the centre, then I didn’t like it, but I didn’t erase, I had to have the blank sheet in front of me and therefore I turned the page. “There was no way of having the smudge integrated into the drawing”, my mother told me, I’ve always been like that, I liked to leave. Not completing something also means remaining in the volatility of children, who are obsessed with one thing for three days, after which their interest is exhausted and they move on to something else.

What is fertilizer for you?
Affections in the broadest sense, attention to what is around, realizing and becoming passionate about others, about their stories.

Listening to stories causes people to have less hesitation and aggression, more kindness.
