I don't know if it's a prayer, or an attempt for a prayer. All I know is it flew out of me, in urgency, real and raw. Then it printed itself again and again, like a spirit looking for the best body.

Translation:

- Every action is Spiritual

- To look for an extension of ones soul, through: knowledge, emotion, sensation, speech, transmission, perception, solitude and encouter, movement, gift, will, welcoming, dream, action

- Then I would like those simple words to be a prayer, only this doins, the crispation of my muscles, even the lacks of inspiration. I would like to write a prayer withour words. I would also say that every action has to tend to love.

- Love is the greatest prayer, yet you have to know how to love

- Art is maybe a jump toward the sky, or a move toward the world

- Life is an embrace with the world, and my soul is unsatiable and stuborn

- What matters in being is the trace it leaves, the impression of presence, everything that is its mark yet doesn't really belong to it, at least down here
