Life Is A Masquerade

I traveled to many places and saw many different faces. In all these places I saw many painted faces and I thought - what are they hiding behind those painted faces? Who are these people that go from place to place, carring with them an extra face? They are not themselves. They walk, they talk, they dance and they smile, yet they are a mystery. Nobody knows who they are. They go from place to place - hiding always. They could be here or there, but you will never see them without their painted face. There is a mystery behind those painted faces. Nobody knows because they know how to hide. They go through life smiling and hiding, because They know that this life is nothing but a masquerade...

    Lucilla, I always wonder about you... I'm glad to have meet you here on the soup. this is my way of traveling... the faces i might never meet... now that is a masquerade in an everyday making... sometimes mysteries can suite life with and without a face... always looking forward to have you visit me here on the soup... and one day in real life's reality...xox~pd
