There are two very precise periods in the life of a young human being, that of childhood and that of adolescence and the transition from one to the other is almost clear. A 13-year-old boy lives this “mutation” unconsciously. Suddenly his interests change, they become others, more adults but there is still a moment in which, with closed eyes, the vulnerability of the dreaming, fantastic child who is serene returns. A shell, a branch, papier-mache horns or a simple egg, become a harmonious remembrance not too far in the memory but still a remembrance, a dream. But then, with open eyes, the dream gives way to the reality, bitter at times, of daily growth.
