  • If someone asks you to arrange a meeting with some individuals from the past from any field, arts,politics, religion,etc which one would you invite and why?
    Here is my list:

    I would love to invite Christ and to know the real story because to be honest I do not believe in the stories that were written after he died. I would like to see his eyes,to hear his voice and to be in front of one of the figures whose presence has always been with me since I was a child and that changed the world forever.

    I would like to bring Beethoven to the most beautiful theatre and by magic give him back his hearing and allow him to direct his 9th symphony with hundreds of people from the present listening to him so he could know his music never died. He was always one of the people I admired because to create beauty in that terrible condition of losing his hearing he must had been an amazing human being.

    I would like, just forgetting his cruelty in many ways and the fact he did not like cats, to meet Napoleon. Since I was little I had a fascination with him because he was an extraordinary soldier. My meeting would not be when he was a hero and a conquerer but when he was alone in the island of St Helena where he died. I would love to make him laugh, to do a little healing and to give him the most beautiful day of his life not because he had been an Emperor but because of his isolated and humble situation at that time.

    I would love to invite St Francis of Assisi and spend a day with him in a field full of animals and see the man who inspired my love for all the poor creatures of this world interacting with them and comunicating through his love.

    I would love to invite Michael Jackson. I discovered him too late and I was so sorry for this. I would like to ask him to perform for me some of his magic numbers including the Moon Walk.

    I would like to invite my mother to spend a day with me and to ask all the questions I never asked her and the stories of her life I never heard because I was so busy with the arrogance of being young.

    I would like to invite little Cecilia and found out all the traumas she had when she was a scared little girl and that had been buried under a blanket of forgetfulness. I would like to embrace her and to heal her and to make her feel like the most special and safe creature in the whole world.Maybe that could had changed my story too.

    Well this is my list. Which one is yours?
