The sky is dark, blue-grey, the streets are busy, parks are empty if we not count some unfortunate person who has no other place to go.

“The &phemeral necessity”

  Dear reader, people like me who come out from the humanities faculties prepare themselves to jobs defined USELESS from 98% of the population: we do not save lives as doctors, nor build houses such as architects or engineers, we don’t remove criminals from the streets as the lawyers do (should do).
