Women that don't look
don't expect
seems they don't feel

Disturbing men that look at you
that don't hide what they are

Power that hides
that feels intimidate

The machine moves (under my total control) in a way that allows the static light to earn life draw in tight lines, composed by a multiplicity, only clear by the distance between them. It has no tricks. It has no superposition. It's no secret. It has no tricks.

imgManuel Luís Cochofel

I had been to the play
With my pearl of a Peri -
But, for all I could say,
She declared she was weary,
That "the place was so crowded and hot, and
she couldn't abide that Dundreary."

Then I thought "Lucky boy!
'Tis for YOU that she whimpers!"
And I noted with joy
Those sensational simpers:
And I said "This is scrumptious!" - a
phrase I had learned from the Devonshire shrimpers.

> Lourdes (France)

In the heart of the Pyrenees, Lourdes receives 5 million visitors from all over the world every year.
Spirituality, whether belonging to history or legends, is part of the present through the depth and beauty of the sight, the marks of the past, the serenity of the Sanctuaries.
Lourdes was just a small market town on the 11 February, when Bernadette Soubirous met, along the Gave, the “Lady” that made the town a Marian city.
Today Lourdes has the second greatest number of hotels in France with 270 establishments.
Its geographical position, at the foot of the mountains makes it an ideal starting-point of excursions to the Pyrenees.

Furtive glances,
stories to be told in each stop,
in it we are always exposed to our loneliness...
