Who am I? Am I an umbrella or a spider? Am I an umbrella or Miss Umbrella? Am I an umbrella or a work of art? I don’t know what I am, I just miss the time when I was an umbrella. I feel that I used to be happier. I used to feel useful and even though I was an umbrella, no one thought that I had feelings or thoughts. But now it is not like that, but there is no one who wants to think about these things. I don’t know why human are so selfish and allow manipulation and change in anything and unfortunately they do it without permission.

A TABLECLOTH IS ONE OF THESE OBJECTS THAT WE SIT NEXT TO THE TABLECLOTH MANY TIMES DURING THE DAY UNDER THE PRETEXT OF HAVING MEALS, SOMETIMES ALONE AND SOMETIMES WITH OUR FAMILY AND SOMETIMES WITH OUR FRIENDS UNDER THE PRETEXT OF HAVING TEA AND COFFEE NEXT TO THEM, BUT SOMETHING WHAT WE DON’T KNOW IS THAT THE TABLECLOTHS ARE ALIVE AND COLLECT ALL OUR FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS AND KNOW THE STORIES OF EACH ONE OF US. SOMETIMES I THINK THE TABLES WOULD NEVER LAST WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF A TABLECLOTH BECAUSE OF KNOWING THIS VOLUME OF EMOTIONS AND ANECDOTES.

Then I cover it with epoxy. That is the room of my mind and how it is ideas from moment to moment They come to me. I don’t have a moment of peace and it is so painful.
