“The seven steps of the love crystallization are :
- we think : “what a pleasure to kiss him/her, and to be kissed by him/her!” and so on;
- love birth;
- the first crystallization begins (what I call ‘crystallization’ is this mind operation – the fact that every thing we discover in the loved person is interpreted like another new perfection);
- doubt birth;
- second crystallization (he/she loves me).”
I couldn’t pay tribute to Firenze without quoting, at least once, Stendhal. The writer who was suffering of the famous “Florence’ syndrome”.

«L’amour n’est pas un feu qu’on renferme en une âme,
Tout nous trahit, la voix, le silence, les yeux,
Et les feux mal couverts n’en éclatent que mieux.»
(“Love isn’t a fire we can contain in a soul: everything gives ourselves away, voice, silence, eyes. And badly banked up fires stand out even clearly.”)
Paris, subway, April 2012.
