I would like people to understand that we must try not to look at beauty, but feel beauty with our eyes closed
National Geographic – where you can read his story
Mauro Morandi has lived alone on Budelli, an island in the Maddalena archipelago, near the strait of Bonifacio in northern Sardinia, for twenty-eight years. Like the Desert Mothers and Fathers of Egypt around the 3rd century, this lover of reading, silence, sea and sunset has patently learned a thing or two.
Feeling beauty with our eyes closed.
My favourite quotation of 2017 to date!
