Changing clothes: an incipit for a new novel

How define the end of a project both in life and in the work place? Is the end simply set by the achievement of an objective or by the beginning of a new story?

I’ve still some doubt about it. Anyhow, whenever an end is defined, it implies a transition and wherever there is a transition there is a change. As an example, think about a glass of liquid water left outside in the balcony. If the morning after there is ice this means that the water doesn’t exists anymore as a liquid (end of a state) because of a change in the weather condition (temperature and pressure).

Changes happen during also our lives. An example? I will tell you one of mine in which I’ve changed some clothes in my closet when I decided to attend the MBA.

Here below there is the incipit of this new novel that is still in progress. It was my first day of lectures and…

The sun has had revealed its face only a few times during that September. It was a typical day for the end of the summer, so nicely warm and illuminated by a bright sunshine that doesn’t blind.

That morning, from the bus number 25, the weaves of the landscape interfered with that light creating flashes, one after another. “These flashes make me blind”, I thought.

Each glare lighted up a past life’s memory that, before the trip, it had been taken and folded in the luggage that I brought with me. I saw myself dressed with clothes like webservices, antenna theory, data base modeling, electromagnetic field propagation, gradient, rotor e divergence. Concepts that I had learnt before deciding to leave for that new trip.

A man in the bus rang for his stop. It was also my stop and the flashes in my mind suddenly disappeared. I got out and a blast of wind picked up in the air a leaf that had just fallen. My eyes followed the leaf that was carried by the wind when a Mystical Palace captured the attention of my sight, the Ferdinandeo.

For a while, I forgot where the leaf was going as I forgot all the stuff that I was bringing in my luggage. “It is time to wear new clothes”, I thought.
