SKINS

“Every morning jump in the bed and floor a mine.” “The mine am I “Ray Bradbury”.

Dwell is beyond where comes awareness. Live by altering the logic of sentiment. Not wanting to know, not wanting to add any results. Let there be adrift. Float in silence after having fought against all the trends. Live in the invisible. Live skins.

An emotional journey that reconcile with the humanity of the feelings. A continuous struggle and pacification with own emotions. Battles enclosed and protected under our skins in which the end is not victory, but the mere fact of live and let live with a widespread need to draw conclusions, results. Try to be and in each present moment, leaving skin smell, sweat, bleed, change, feel.

“Drowned in the search for balance, I can breathe when I surrender to who I am at all times”
