BROKEN MIRRORS THEME
Mirrors only show you what you want to believe you're seeing: an image, a set of reflections, an illusion, or maybe simply reality.

To free ourselves from guilt... ("As you sow feelings, so shall you reap". Charles Aznavour)

An open silver envelope and a note discretely slipped inside, where you can write any memory and with time you can change the note over and over again to infinity. < br/> Every loss is an opportunity for a discovery. The lost messages always invent the person who should find them." (R. Juarroz)
