GOING WITH THE FLOW...


Once the present lived in this place
Vibrant and busy
 
Today the past got its ownership
Dust permeates everything
 
I like this way
It still tells many stories
Every single thing is readable
 
The lady from the portrait
Has not lost her meaning
Her face moves
Her voice can be heard
Her gracious figure
Displays eternal beauty
 
This place captivates me
Its age takes me with it
For an exotic trip across time and History

A MATTER OF TRANSLATION...

 

How much we can learn from
What people say and how they look like
To the world outside themselves?
 
I feel it is just a little picture, a little understanding
Like a little star of a vast galaxy
 
These bodies are naked just on the surface
The meanings that come from them
Are framed
Are surrounded by boundaries
 
But inside is a totally different scenario
An endless field of voices
Emotions
Thoughts
Questions
Images
Colors we can't even imagine to be possible...
 
Behind the voiceless faces and acting bodies
Live the real substance
The whole translation of one's self
Ipsis litteris
 
People are much, much more than
Their skin can show
Their eyes can tell
Their vocal cords can resonate
 
That is why it is so fascinating
To try to guess them
Walk through their mazes
Solve their puzzles
And
Love them throughout the discoveries we make!
