They say that life is a handkerchief and that sooner or later one finds oneself again with those places that even by dint of frequenting, each time one returns they always offer a new perspective.
Resentful for the serious damage that last January caused the famous storm baptized with the grotesque name of Filomena, our Retiro Park has returned, after several months closed, to open its doors and grant citizens the approval of power stroll happily through all its beautiful corners.
One of my favorite corners, as I think I have said on occasion, is the Crystal Palace, a beautiful 19th century building, located next to a small but charming lake.
Or what comes to be the same, especially for the purpose of this post: located on the edge of a mirror, in whose reflection one can experience the most diverse and varied sensations.
And among them, seeing the reflection of this neoclassical structure with daring modernist approaches in its design, made me think of a sense of continuity, of infinity, as if that union between the original and its reflection constituted an attempt, perhaps causal and not casual, encompassing everything at a glance.
The fusion of the Alpha and the Omega, or the ancient symbol of the Ouroboros, under the simple equation that the Beginning and the End are not, but the opposite poles of the same and imaginary magnet.
In short: as it is above, so it is also below.
