Be like the bug

I live in Sicily, under mount Etna,the largest active volcano in europe; this year we have been constantly targeted by persistent rains of volcanic ash ...
One day, in the garden of my house, I decided to pass the time of the coffee break by creating a time lapse video of the volcanic ash falling for the umpteenth time on our homes when I noticed that by pure chance I had immortalized a small insect which, hit in flight by a grain of ash, had fallen on the table; right in front of my iphone. That little guy, struck by what in terms of proportions could be compared to a boulder for a human being, after having twisted a little and given a shock, left without thinking about it under an incessant rain of volcanic meteorites.
I think it's a bit of a metaphor for our lives, for our land, we take off even after a thousand stones.
All time.

Be like the bug.

I would like to dedicate this film to all the italian Healthcare workers that bravely fought Sars-Cov2 in this terrible years.
