I have a surprised face right now, no wait not that way! I’m not an emoji and I’m not really expressing it on my face. Surprise comes from the inside, sometimes from the heart and sometimes from the mind of course. It might be caused from sight or from hearing something. Don’t forget taste. Taste is another good start. Surprise comes from your stomach and you know what your stomach does then? It calls out all your blood cells which then start vibrating all together on the same frequency. Blood pressure goes up, bad feelings down, great energy all over and no thoughts at all.
This is Surprise!
It’s 6 years now since I discovered that and guess what?! I got surprised by how beautiful my homeland is… Yes! The same one I had lived in for 28 years before then! It’s so true when they say that you discover the real importance of something when you loose it and this is surprise too. Sometimes surprise can be challenging. I’m not here to talk about this now! “Good vibes only Isa!”. Just imagine driving on the road, just one horizon in front of you. Mountains, green mountains standing as guardians of the rocky one at their back, covered in snow.
It’s mid April and my seasons are a bit confused now, but I don’t care, it’s not time to think about seasons and snow and climate changes. It’s time to stare at that horizon while the car keeps approaching that mountain, your mind starts travelling back in time. So many images comes up in my mind. That medieval church hidden in the mountain, my dad and I hiking around. The clear blue waters of that little canyon where I used to spend my summers as a child. The sunset over my little town. Day trips with my family. And that local dish I used to have at my uncle’s restaurant! All these elements bringing back precious memories! You also remember there’s a beautiful lake lying at the feet of that mountain, but you’re not sure and you want to check. You keep driving and here we are, next to the mountain, just one more turn and I should see the lake.
I turned around that corner and no words, just vibrations. Blue waters all over. High mountains proudly standing up to protect it. The sun going down at my back and rainbow colors on Resegone Mountain. A shy moon is spying on me behind Resegone mountain and still I have no words. I asked the Moon and she whispered something I could not hear, just feel. I was surprised twice in that moment. I was surprised for the beauty of what I was looking at, but gosh! I was surprised more when I realised I was looking at my homeland. Blood pressure up, bad feelings dissolved, great energy all over and no thoughts at all.
