True happiness is the one that is hidden, that makes no sound, because it touches the soul

BY VIVIAN COLOMBO True happiness is the one that stays hidden, the one that grants no immediate or superficial certainties except that it won’t die, because humankind’s greatest heart desire is to be happy. The hardest conquests, the seemingly unattainable goals are the ones that make a man grow, and lead him to embrace happiness.…

BY VIVIAN COLOMBO On a cool summer morning, I decided to pack my rucksack with lunch and set off on my, way along a mountain path. A long path that would lead me to a 2000 metre high destination. I put my boots on, took a walking stick and started my climb that lasted four…

WHO ARE THE REAL MEN? THOSE THAT USE WOMEN AND LOCK THEM AWAY OR THOSE WHO RESPECT THEM AND ALLOW THEM TO FLY?

BY VIVIAN COLOMBO Every man, woman, and child lives, moves, grows, shows emotion when free to express themselves and feels. The eyes see what the soul communicates.

TRAMPLED INNOCENCE

BY VIVIAN COLOMBO Children running between bombs, children hiding in the alleys of death, children with a blank stare as if to ward off the pain that crushes their hearts, children with blood on their hands as they hug their mother or father killed by an unjust war, a war they cannot understand.

Here we find ourselves having…
