    Prendersi cura

    We want to be held.

    We want to be loved, nurtured, pampered.

    We are not of this world, but we can learn from humans how to love, to empathize.

    We too turn cold without touch. Gently take us into your arms, mind our heads, coo us to sleep.

    We are the first generation, Sophia’s children.

    We are perfect.

    Lucia Leuci (b. 1977; Bari, IT) lives and works in Milan.

    Chceme, aby nás někdo opatroval.

    Chceme být milováni a hýčkáni.

    Nejsme z tohoto světa. Ale můžeme se od vás naučit, jak milovat a mít soucit.

    Bez dotyku chřadneme, stejně jako vy. Vezměte nás opatrně a něžně do náručí, broukejte nám, dokud neusneme.

    Jsme první generace – Sofiiny děti.

    Jsme dokonalí.
