"Fifteen days have passed since I’ve cut the big cherry tree at the bottom of the field. I had to cut the tree, it was casting too much shadow on the potato plot. Yesterday I glanced down to the stacked branches and I noticed they carried on living, swelling buds, pushing out bunches of flowers. Regardless. Life never stops. Presumptuous deity of my eyes, I see the cherry branches will dry out soon, cut off from the roots. This predictiveness bothers me." Marzabotto teaches us the embarrassment of looking at each other as of today. The only relief is to gaze, without presuming, without knowing."
