Among tales and impressions

“When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye.” This glimpse was probably coming from a star, most probably reflected someway and somewhere in South America in the direction of my hometown, Campobasso. That’s probably why I had the feeling of being home when traveling in the south of the world and that’s probably why I hope that the GalileoMobile has given to some of the children we met a glimpse on the rest of the world around them. When I was a child I had the fortune to find “Interstellar space” by John Coltrane in my father’s collection of LP, to listen it without understanding anything, to be someway influenced and lead to study the physics of interstellar space 15 years later.
So, maybe, after meeting us, some of the guys we met will follow someway the glimpse that probably passed by their eyes.
This has been neither a tale nor a prayer, it’s a wish I liked to write in this way.
