  • One of my best friends says love is a matter of three elements: time, space and availability.

    My friend Elena is an engineer and I am a filologist, but I'm not sure this is the reason why she has a wonderful man and three kids and I'm still single. Anyway: making three different things at a time was never one of my strengths.

    Imagine: two people, three elements, one miracle.

    In literature, love is the topic that the most authors have written about. The same happens in music. The word "love" offers more than 8,900,000,000 results in Google, and recent studies have redesigned the Maslow Pyramid, with the feeling of belonging occupying the place of Self-actualization.

    Time, space and availability.

    Next time it happens to me, I promise I'll take this flight.
