Emilia mi informava sempre per tempo quando tu e Zia Gemma tornavate, specificatamente, data di arrivo e ripartenza.
Mi organizzavo di conseguenza e cercavo di tenermi il più libero possibile da lavoro in tale periodo per essere a tua disposizione.
Ci piaceva prendere l’auto e viaggiare per le strade e i percorsi delle nostre zone, senza una meta ben precisa.
La fortuna di poterci muovere nel nostro meraviglioso territorio e andare dall’alta montagna, al mare, attraversando le nostre vallate in una manciata di minuti, ti faceva scoprire paesini e borghi che ogni volta ti toglievano il fiato per la meraviglia.
Ti sorprendevi come un “bambino”, eri curioso e mi dicevi spesso, “ma come fai a sapere tutte queste strade, viottoli e orizzontarti senza perdere mai la bussola?”
Probabilmente, abituato alle tue enormi street canadesi, non capivi come ci si potesse ricapare in un groviglio di stradine tutte curve e così ingarbugliate in un fazzoletto di terra.
Mi mancherai, anche se passavano anni tra un nostro giro e l’altro, mi mancherà la tua presenza.
E anche se, tuo malgrado, hai dovuto intraprendere un altro percorso, sappi che ogni volta che passerò in quei luoghi tu sarai con me, in macchina.
Ciao Zio Alfò, fai buon viaggio.
