Saints’ day. Michael, also Mikael, Michel, Miguel, Mihail, Miquel, Michaela, Michelle, and Mihaela

“If you remove my demons, I would lose my angels”.
(Tennessee Williams)

……………….

Dear friends, in my opinion the religions do business and manipulate our deepest and mystical feelings. They have been the bloodiest justification in the history of the wars of mankind.
They make dogma between angels and demons, and between ‘the good’ and ‘the evil’ just as insurance companies qualify drivers, as ‘bonus’ and ‘malus’.
All this although the contradictions and the feelings in human mind, are certainly: “Complementary and Inseparable”.

Thanks so much for your visit!

Tourist and transport

“The real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes in front the new places” (Marcel Proust).
Next week some people will travel and others, like me, will remain in our customary places. To those I wish them, a happy trip, but for us too. We can to prepare our next (maybe I will go to Germany on Christmas) or simply close our eyes and dream with these sketches.  The first, about London is dedicated to a very good friend of mine:

Have a wonderful trip and a nice stay Sara !  The next days you’ll be in my mind.

Dear followers, thanks for your visit!

Saints’ day. Judith, Ivette and also Jutta

Dear women, as a man I’m, not only I admire the beauty and sweetness of your body and mind, but your courage too. I suggest you check online the story of this saint,  an heroine like most of you: another kind of heroines, without behead no one, but with its endless daily tasks and especially with your useful feelings.

I adore your courage! Thanks so much for be here. Cheers!
