AM: What does the concept of history lead you to?
Me: the first thing that comes to mind is the history of my family. Obviously the second thing is the range of events throughout human history. It all comes together.
AM: of course, your ancestors have gone through moments in history, and certain events that occurred have affected them, as they have affected everyone.
Me: for example, the economic situation that Europe was going through at the end of the 19th century and prior to the first World War, and the flourishing of an American continent full of space and resources, made almost all my great-grandparents come from Spain and Italy to Argentina, and there they were chained to the crossing of their children’s own stories, to get to be myself in the here and now.
AM: and who joined the branch that was native American. And in turn, the local events of the chosen country, Argentina, which also caused a move to the city of Buenos Aires, which was where they settled and produced the connection between your parents, so that you then chose to come.
Me: when I go far back and look in the family tree, as far back as the year 1480, at least in one of the branches, and I start thinking about each story of each of the people involved in my being here today, I imagine each of their own stories, chained to the moment of human history, and it never ceases to amaze me and to try to be able to investigate more about their own lives. Since they have done nothing that could have appeared, precisely, in any history book, I can find little on the net.
AM: only a very few have been able to be captured by what they have done in any history book, so the vast majority go through your same problems to really find out what your ancestors have done in their lives, but you also know that what you carry in your genes, in your cells and their memories, make you have that feeling of what each one has really done.
Me: I love to ramble on about it. I don’t say it in a pejorative way, because I try to place myself in the time and space in which each one lived, and in a certain way I feel that I am transported and certain images, thoughts, of what they did come to me, and some story suddenly appears. I think I mix it with the desire I have to write the history of my family, and a lot has to do with it.
AM: the same thing happens to you every time you create something. Do you remember each of the dedicated poems with the songs you choose to put together the video with photos of someone you love?
Me: yes, of course. I know their story, and thinking about that person, I identify them with a song, and over it, listening to it, words sprout in me that create that poem, in verse with the melody of the song, and the meaning of the poem ends up resulting in the essence that I see of it. It emerges naturally, and I am surprised by the final result.
AM: I assure you that when you decide to write the story of your family, it will have the same result. And you can be sure that it will be the real story because it will come out of your perception, and in this balance and coherence that your essence is marking you on this path, it will undoubtedly result in a story very close to what it really was. Do not forget that you are the result of that story.
Me: I am very motivated to write that story. I feel that it is something that has been brewing for a long time, and that possibly, it will be the moment, soon, to start doing it.
AM: there is no better time than the time that is meant to be. And it doesn’t let it be anything, but your own history written for your descendants.
I invite everyone to watch the video of Matias with the theme of the day
Finally, I encourage everyone to engage in conversation with their own I Am, to listen to what we each have to say to each other. No one else but us can re-signify our own being
