Start a path from the special meaning, referring to the water of the river that flows beside it. The life of this man rolls on the wheels of a Vespa, in the direction of the closed Gabcikovo, where seven-tenths of what he is, tell him some things, absolutely new.
The domain of the water, along the banks of the Danube, along with the charm of small green islands, it is not a place to break up, and even a space where you can feel a human wreck. James Hamilton Paterson, in “Seven Tenths” – http://www.amazon.it/Sette-decimi-In-viaggio-mari/dp/8879285424 – http://www.amazon.it/Seven-tenths-James-Hamilton-Paterson/dp/1933372699 – begin to tell something similar to what our Vespa enthusiast lone experienced: “I am lost.” This consideration disturbing, is the place where water is lost a Vespa enthusiast and a castaway, an area that turns into emotional vibration inside, looking for a bank, looking at a possible landing.

The latter observation, referring to the Vespa enthusiast who sailed into the sea of green grass, near the banks of the Danube, has made him think about how much water is capable of acting on the imagination. There, where the barges shooting to move, he was asked about the speed of the water, the reasons which made it necessary to capture the boats and intentions.
Looking at the high banks of the Danube, those who had brought him there, and just at that particular moment in his life, he realized he had found three tenths of himself that he was missing. Scroll with me, slowly, as I do with you.
