´With the New Year fate will start to treat you and me and all the others well and the happy life can at last begin. Isn’t that so?´ Giacomo Leopardi
Ever thought about the future? Look around you and you will see that others, too, have an incurable need to control their life and foretell the future. They try to forecast it, to invest in it, to escape it. Everyone in one’s own way. What is this force that drives people ahead from the present? The future is made of fantasy which is an altogether different substance as the present. Yet the present seems too evasive therefore one keeps missing it all the time.
