LIFE IS LIKE A GAME
Sometimes life is like a game. Some people come into your life and then disappear, others come and s000tay forever, these are the best, and there are also some people who have been really important in your life and, for no reason, disappear to never come back. Human relationships are complex, and we all keep “secrets” that mark our future. As years pass by, you understand many things. There are few people in life that stay forever and unconditionally, unless they are family. In my case family has always been the most important pillar and I know, for sure, that they will never let me down.
I am very sorry for losing friends, but I realized that perhaps it is the best because people change, we forget the common past, and often is easier not to communicate to understand what happened, it is easier letting go that fight. When I was younger, I struggled to maintain friendships, but now, due to some bad experiences, I am not trying that hard. It is something that I am not proud to confess.
However there is an important part of people who stay, they are the usual ones, the ones who understand life as I do, and they are another of my pillars. And I am excited to have the opportunity to expand the circle of friends, because we are already starting the second stage of life, and perhaps in the second round friends will be more mature, calmer, they will remain forever and understand life as I do.
But as I said, life is like a game, you never know what will happen or who you’ll meet. Maybe a single person will give a total turn to your life, sometimes this turn is necessary and sometimes it is unexpected, able to destabilize what seemed calm. Malenka talks about it in her long awaited new novel GARDEN MANOR, JUEGA CONMIGO, where Jonás returns to the family home after the death of his grandfather to sell the mansion where he lived as a child. There he will have to face his ghosts, friends, servants, family, but also into his life will appear a new persona, Daniela, a young restorer who he hires to help him taking inventory of the antiques in the house. Jonás immediately and passionately attracted to her. Both of them start a game, and together they will discover unexpected events. At the same time, Jonas will have to fight against many secrets and nightmares that Garden Manor causes him. A FANTASTIC NOVEL WITH PASSION, HIDDEN SECRETS, ART AND LOVE.
