Ma dell'autunno mi piacciono i colori, così caldi, così avvolgenti. Ho sempre in mente un'immagine che associo a un Paese che non ho ancora avuto il piacere di visitare, il Canada. Vedo davanti a me un immenso bosco con un tappeto di foglie. Vorrei contare le sfumature di marrone, arancione e giallo, ma sono infinite. Chi le ha dipinte? Chi ha creato questi colori? Cammino sul morbido tappeto di foglie. Qualche ramoscello si spezza sotto i miei scarponcini. Gli alberi sono alti. Qualcosa si muove furtivo tra i rami. Uno scoiattolo? Qualche ultimo pallido raggio di sole filtra tra gli alberi. Infilo le mani nelle tasche del giubbotto per tenerle al caldo. Vedo nascosta in fondo la piccola baita di legno dove mi aspettano con un piatto di pancake caldi e sciroppo d'acero. Ovunque il profumo del bosco, nel mio piatto, nei miei occhi, nel mio cuore.
Fall is coming soon and it's strange to say that because we this summer was quite similar to fall, so the weather is not changing so much. My favourite season is summer because I was born at the seaside and some of my oldest memories are neverending holidays on the beach and sea salt on my skin. Because water is the Mother. Because sea is blue and sky is blue too, and where they join there's the door to other worlds.
But what I love of fall is its colours, so warm, so fascinating. I always have in my mind an image of fall that I connect to Canada, a country I haven't had yet the pleasure to visit. I see in front of me a huge wood with a leaves carpet. I would like to count the hues of brown, orange, yellow, but they are endless. Who painted them? Who created these colours? I walk on the soft leaves carpet. Some little branch breaks under my boots. Trees are high. Something moves stealthily among the branches. A squirrel? The last pale sunrays seeps among the trees. I put my hands in my jacket's pockets to keep them warm. I see the little wood refuge, almost hidden, where they are waiting for me with a dish of warm pancakes and maple syrup. Anywhere the smell of the wood, in my dish, in my eyes, in my heart.
Questo biglietto è la mia passeggiata immaginaria nel bosco odoroso.
This card is my fancied walk in the fragrant wood.
