Dear reader, you now find yourself at the entrance of an “aulic space”. The word aulê, which is used nowadays to refer to “classroom” in Spanish –“aula”‒, was actually used in Ancient Greek to refer to a place where a person could spend time in the open air and simultaneously be sheltered from weather adversities. Thus, you are about to go into a garden of fertile philosophy. It is a place which has been plowed by words, inspirations and thoughts. You will be able to enter it in any way you like. You will be able to stop, relax and feel its vital force. You will breathe its perfume of freedom, communion and shared dreams. There is no reason, adventurous reader, to be frightened. You will not find thorns but you may discover some hidden seeds among the taste buds of your hands and of your memories. Will you dare to cultivate your own garden with us step by step, letter by letter? These texts have been left as seeds in order to put us under a spell: they are sprouts, which we may call Platonic games of writing and of love. They are now offered to you.
