Relight the stars

"We must give time to time." In this new year , this quote from the novelist, poet and Spanish playwright Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ( Alcalá de Henares, 29 September 1547 - Madrid, 23 April 1616 ) and father of the great novel " El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha " , has its justification. Everyone knows, by definition, the path is not done when you start taking it and it is to do. And besides, popular wisdom says, " who has time has life." Hence the need for patience and perseverance to move forward.

However, this notion of time and patience to take for oneself are fundamental to man today, at a time when our societies advocate the ephemeral, disposable and where we no longer have time to think . These concepts are fundamental because they allow a man to be a man, as a child , to come to an end , puts nine months to be born. The Chinese do not say anything when they say that " those who wait , time opens its doors ."

Another advantage of " give time to time," is that it allows to reintroduce the beauty in our lives, that is to say the ability to look at, to marvel at the world around us . And follow the order of the French poet and writer Guillaume Apollinaire (Rome, August 25, 1880 - Paris , 9 November 1918 ), namely that "it is time to rekindle the stars."

Ricardo Heredia
