Mi voltavo a destra e a sinistra immerso in un oceano di stelle che danzavano elegantemente, mentre perle infantili posavano delicatamente su di me il loro sguardo sorridendo della mia emotività. Una advert una queste stelle cadevano dal cielo donandomi un raggio di sole, un sorriso, un grido o un ballo, senza mai sfiorare l. a. mia pelle ma stringendo con un abbraccio il mio cuore.
Tra i palmi di quella stretta di mano da cui tutto ebbe inizio c’era già un intero universo fatto di 80.000 anime e 80.000 cuori.
