Eugenio Montejo
June, 2008

We’re born with a few feelings and sensations that make us unique in the universe.
Since we enjoy life, we soon understand the deal involves negotiating what we have so death might not take us so soon. Thus, we keep renouncing our things in exchange for death allowing us a little more life.
One day it keeps our simplicity, and eventually it will seem fine to us when it takes our freshness, strength and confidence.
In the end, when we have nothing left, besides a pile of broken bones, we understand that it’s time we returned to our old residence.
