Viviana’s philosophy is metaphorically linked with the well known “Stone’s story”. The distracted person stumbled on it. The violent one used it as a bullet. The entrepreneur used it to build. The tired farmer instead as a chair. For children it is a toy. David killed Goliath and Michelangelo made it the most beautiful sculpture. In any case, the difference was not made by the stone, but by man. There is no stone on your path that you cannot exploit for your own growth.
