Happy New Year!

Stranazione would like to wish all of our readers a wonderful New Year and a glamorous start of a new decade.
It has been a pretty intense, fun and - to some extent- traumatizing time, but most of us made it!

We lost a lot of important personalities, had a lot of threats to humanity, and the world of art and creativity may have disappointed some of our ancient romantic ideals.

Before I hang up my new calendar, and I would like to express some of my thoughts with you.

As every year, decade and century before our times, new problems have arisen. New diseases, new wars, new everything. These things happen because we let them happen.
It doesn't take much of an effort to shut our mouths up and let life take its course without creating controversy, or open our mouths for a good reason and spread awareness of these problems actually going on.
Yes, we are around six billion people who share a huge chunk of land mass and who have different ideals, morals and thoughts.
Yet, we all have something in common, something very small hidden inside our rib cage. These small things lets us live, feel and act.

The heart. Without the heart we wouldn't be here. Without the heart we wouldn't feel compassion, love  or sorrow. Without the heart, we wouldn't know what truly mattered to us.
You can argue its all in the brain, but I truly believe most of our basic actions and instincts are all locked up in our hearts.

All of this sounds ridiculously cheesy, but still, I would like our readers, as limited, yet wonderful as you are, to at least think from time to time.

We are slowly drowning in our own glass of water, and it doesn't take much to take a look around and see what we have done - the good and the bad... and hopefully climb out of it slowly.
And now that the world is becoming more connected and closer, we can all do it together and do what our predecessors have been ultimately trying to do.

So, my last point is: Have fun, be glamorous, and do what you have to do, but please remember you have a heart like the other 6 billion people who share this earth with you.

Eat good food, have fun, and be glamorous.
Happy New Year,
and Happy Start of a New Decade.

Lots of love,

Stranazione Team
