Azure Window Memorabilia: An Honest Reminder of Gozo’s Famous Landmark that Simply is No More

“There’s no such thing as complete when it comes to stories. Stories are infinite. They are as infinite as worlds.” ― Kelly Barnhill, Iron Hearted Violet

Sometimes I take the time to visit other blogs…And I do it to check other people’s way of writing…their way to express themselves through words…their reasons for choosing to blog above all other things. And then I turn to my own judgment while trying to answer the simple question that is: “Why have I started this blog in the first place?” Because I am doing this…that’s kind of obvious…but trying to find the rational argument behind it…that has taken me some time to try to get at the bottom of…and I still haven’t yet…However…I stumbled upon a heartbreaking headline the other day: “Malta’s famous Azure Window arch collapses into the sea”. And it suddenly dawned on me…that I had put off my Gozo feature for far too long…that people have to know…the Azure Window on the island of Gozo was overawing and it has to be remembered as such. And maybe it is heartbreak that the best stories are born from and maybe the most beautiful wordings come out of sorrow…and maybe it’s that…right there…that drives me into blogging…the burdensome and inadequate ephemerality of things. And even though it is not always rewarding…blogging…I mean…it takes a hoper to keep on going…a pray-er to find a miracle in always losing and…well, a magic bean buyer to delve into such naiveties. I must admit…I am the most derelict naive there can be…and as you might imagine I have ridden all storms of disappointment and anticlimax there can be.  However, I was one of the many…or, otherwise few…that have seen the Azure Window while it still existed. I am indeed a hoper, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer and everything in between…but most of all I am the one who gets to tell this story…the memorabilia of Gozo’s Azure Window as an honest reminder that this nature’s monument once was and never will be. Having that this is a memorabilia post I am going to leave the entire story of our Gozo trip for later… Until then, though…let me say this: there is magic in worldly truths…until they become desperately incoherent…consumed…devoured…no more…
