If given the opportunity to choose another life, I would probably choose that of a bee, whose purpose is so cute and simple, that it excites me. But until then, I will dedicate myself to this of expressing ideas, which, in my point of view, is the most beautiful thing that human beings can do. I am a lover of chocolates, books, stars, the sea and everything that seems to be infinite or absurd.
