The lab follows you
And no weekend exists for the inquisitive mind
That roams and takes notes
Trying to taste the hidden juice
Of each moment of the day.
Your own Shadow is always the freshest.
Once developed with silver in your mind,
No memory can be erased.
Holidays spark a light on the passions,
attachment to hobbies,
addiction to communication.
The luggage is always too big and heavy.
Bikinis are perfect for the beach
but also for the hot summer rain
when it comes as a surprise.
When life tries to slap you in the face
Give it a high five, instead.
The letting go
And the waiting
Are a nice new exercise
To learn the art of living.
What was struggle and effort
Is now attention and observation.
Setting new rules for a new game.
A new motto is born
Out of focus and relaxation.
“Fast and precise
Between coffee breaks”
To feed the science
And the creativity
enjoying academic freedom.
