"The transience of life"

The beauty as time passes by.

I often question about the art of living and the mystery of its path. This leads me to try new perspectives and trying new visions I come across ancient readings and to philosophers of the past, to find, in part, the answers I am looking for.

Reading out of curiosity "Dialogues" of the tenth book of the philosopher Seneca the Younger, known to many for his "De Brevitate Vitae", I found a "common thread" that led me to carry out this project: The transience of life and the beauty of the food observing myself and time passing by.
