Preludes

“At this very moment there is a comet close to the Sun. The comet will be almost in touch with the big star. A long tail will grow from its back. Then, while its trail continues, the tail will disappear.

Time after time, the wear defeats, as the dust on the groove against the needle of the turntable.

Stellar dust has fallen from the sky since millions of years ago, visible quite often when one cleans the shelves at home.

At this very moment there are many of these comets around the sun and many more suns lying around. More stars than the seconds we have lived until now in our fleeting lives. As shooting stars, as fireflies blinking, as the big star in fast-motion.

However, a shooting star is not a star, is just a brilliant light produced by a small rock or metallic body that breaks through the atmosphere attracted by our gravity, extinguishing on the air and burning down in a little sigh.

Gravity is a bound and tie things in movement. A force of nature at times enough, at times too much. We struggle.

The dust will continue falling from the sky, covering stealthily our shelves, earth will keep rotating over its own axis bringing night and day, despite of some beliefs about the earth following a sun moving across the universe. A constant pulse maintain us here, sometimes standing, sometimes moving in a constant series of preludes leading us somewhere.”
