Like Tears in the Rain

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched sea beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time
Like tears in rain.
Time... to die."

I recieved a mail asking me why the name of the Blog. It's a quote from one of Blade Runner's last scenes. I first saw Blade Runner when I was a kid and it impressed me hugel. I remember learning those lines above by heart. In italian. Then came thw time when I was able to listen and understand those lines in english, and they seemed, sounded, even better.

Untill now, they are, I think, one of the best expressed way to represent our mortality. Our experiences, everything we have been, will be lost one day, and will not matter much, but yet, a tear will always retain a little of the being who cried it, will it not?

And so this blog, maybe to retain a bit of my thoughts, over the time, before they get lost forever.
