El Llac de les Mosques
Our forties? The good thing about being in your forties is that it
is a good excuse to change your life. To be in a bad mood ‘just
because’ or to go wild, all because of a midlife crisis. Our fifties?
The long awaited menopause. Our sixties? Nicking stuff in the
supermarket without ending up in prison, the trip of a lifetime, and
then the long-awaited retirement. Do we all have the same
uncertainty? When we reach a certain age it is fairly normal and, dare I
say, recommendable to stop and reflect on our lives. I propose a
round-the-world trip with Aphrodite and her rocket-launching breasts,
remote controlled by the Mala Sombra (Bad Shadow) brothers.
I propose an adventure, a round trip, looking forwards and backwards, up and down – I feel sea sick! Sol Picó
