To comfort himself and slow down his mind he thought of his time as a courier, a runner and Maria Luisa and his daughters. Maybe life is just carrying news. Surviving to carry the news. Maybe we have just one message and it is delivered to us when we are born and we are never sure what it says, it may have nothing to do with us personally but it must be carried by hand through a life all the way and at the end handed over, sealed.
