A mask for playing
To the lady or to the nun? I have to think…
The sun barely touched the lady
Who was there looking out of the shelter
we wanted to protect ourselves from the light with a small umbrella
but the ray of sunshine was too inviting to pass up
Under the stairs there was a little nun
Perhaps praying and sitting on his bench
She certainly thought about the world and her futile fate
Cursing silently at her life and her path
A path full of difficulties and tests to overcome
Better to sit here every now and then and imagine
To be able to choose which mask would be best to wear

Being able to choose which mask to wear depending on the occasion that presents itself to overcome the different tests that come our way. They may also be banal but they must be faced, and to do so we adopt attitudes that allow us to move forward and overcome them. We see in the foreground the rabbit mask worn by a girl who wants to hide her true identity with extravagant and confident clothing... behind her, her mask. She dresses herself in beauty and delicacy (lady) and dresses herself in prayer and reflection (little nun)
