The Sorrows of Not-So-Young Werther
Werther, the romantic character of Goethe's novel (The Sorrows of Young Werther), whose first letter we read on May 1771 ,4, with his yellow dress shirtand blue coat, abandons himself in the depth of love to fully drown in its insanity and finally loses his life in its turbulent ocean in the same attire. Losing is the common decision of all lovers, and love does not know East or West, Catholicism or Buddhism. There is no 21st or 18th century; love has always been and will be. Love is a common language. But the longing for lost love on one side and the fear of forgetting its mania and lust on the other. All you have are those heavy and dense feelings that you are ready to lose your life to, just to not forget it. It's like a secret door inside you leads to a cupboard full of memories; you go there every day and dust each of these memories, count them, so that nothing is missing. How much can you count on this mortal body with your decaying memory, while every day at dusting time you touch the worn-out corners of the memory? But objects and spaces, regardless of our existence, keep the memories forever; until one day, they tell us what they have seen and heard. Objects are the witnesses that testify to a lost testimony.
