Just another sunrise at Flores, Petén

Minimal Sunrise by Hugo Muralles

Flores has been well covered by now in Guatemala Daily Photo… thinking about it and something to write with this photo I remembered this wonderful dialog that makes a reference to that exact same feeling: “painting the door over and over again”; let us know if you recognize where does it come from and if you know this feeling from your own both personal or professional activities:

– I don’t get it. Why would anyone paint a picture of a door, over and over again, like, dozens of times?

– Well, then why should we do anything more than once? Should I just smoke this one cigarette? Maybe we should only have sex once, if it’s the same thing.  Why not a door? Sometimes you get fixated on something, and you might not even get why. You open yourself up and go with the flow, wherever the universe takes you.

[…]

That door was her home and she loved it. To me, that’s about making that feeling last.
