“Summer is a summer night or it is not. Summer is all the things that taste and smell like summer, but if I have to summarize the emotion of summer it will always be that of that magical hour of sunset, that of the elusive breeze and the first drink before dinner. (..) The run run of the projects, the rush and the timings "for yesterday" will be dressed in vermouth and abandonment . We will remember so many things that did not seem important and we will take the hours without looking back at the side of a glass of white wine in a beachfront chiringo and that line of Rilke will be a success What answer do you still want? / There will be summer nights and days of radiant lights / We will exist and God will exist ".
Jesús Terrés places hedonism at the level of an art. His texts are a celebration of life and the beauty hidden in the little things and in the few and great truths to cling to. A good table with sincere friends, the love that gives us the best of ourselves, lucidity, conscience and tenderness. The essence of the ephemeral that makes us eternal and the constant reminder that we have come here to play. The author of Nothing Matters makes a statement in these pages that does not admit interpretations and that at this moment takes on the strength of a courageous position before the world: It is not enough to survive, you have to live. Taking the risk of being wrong and not giving up, understanding the happiness of the apparently useless and remembering that in reality, there is only one journey.
Nothing matters is a pleasure for the senses and a call to the search for happiness in what is closest to us and that only needs time and the willingness to learn to look.
