NEVER TAKE LIFE FOR GRANTED - A TOUCHING INTERVIEW WITH MICHELE BRAVI


MY REFLECTIONS ON MICHELE BRAVI’S INTERVIEW




Last Saturday I saw a very touching interview with singer Michele Bravi on TV, which was the first interview he released after his involvement in a road accident where a woman died, a tough,  traumatic experience for him. One that radically changed his life.  In the interview Michele told about this dark period, and I was struck by his answers, his reflections and above all the way he expressed them. It brought me to some reflections I want to share with you all.

Protagonist of legends, myths, anecdotes, poems and standard traditions, the Redbreast is a symbol full of charm and meanings.
