We all need an anchor, to stop us from the hectic world, or to hold on in difficult times. It is always difficult to understand what we need in sad times; with the name of Anchor we refer metaphorically to something that serves our soul and not only …
There’s anything better than the anchor to refer to something that keeps us steady in times of storm.
It allows us to stand firm in a place without sinking and avoid sinking along with the boat in the abyss.
But is that the best place to drop anchor? Difficult to establish, almost impossible. We always want to know how the bottom is to make sure that the anchor does not move. A bottom too deep certainly does not allow you to put down the anchor!
When I was little, every time I saw a port I always wanted to see the bottom, as if the transparency of the water gave me support and tranquility.
In today’s world, where technology breaks into our daily lives, books are the only place to drop anchor. In books we are able to catch the best thoughts by returning children who want to see the bottom to mirror their soul.
