Wear sunscreen....

"Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are about things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you... Sing! Don’t be reckless with other peoples hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. Floss! Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind... the race is long, and in the end it’s only with yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.” (Baz Luhrman; Sunscreen Speech)


Our lives are in jeopardy since the day we are born. And one day the sun won’t shine again for you, at least not here on this planet. But we keep giving the same shy steps. We don’t understand one day an endless night will cover our souls, will cover our bodies, and we will not be able to watch the sun go down, the waves… the sea that calms the storm in my heart and in my soul. And today I make love with life, the same way the waves make love with sand. And the footprints will soon disappear. And no one will remember me. But it’s okay. I will never know who they are. They won’t touch my heart, because there is not going to exist a heart that day. I will be dead remember?
Anyway, this second I’m dazzled, with an overwhelming feeling due to all the wonders I can see, smell, touch. I wear emotions close to the skin, I wear a new heart because the old one was broken. Without broken hearts what would happen to those who try to fix us? Without broken and scattered lives, bad things… how could we ever feel the taste of a nice piece of pie? Of a tasteful strawberry juice. “I want a strawberry juice please”. Before my eyes are suddenly closed. Before the strawberries are all over.
