En tiempos de ocio

We are using a lot of beautiful things every day. Once we understand how beautiful they are, the life is becoming better and more interesting… and when not… well, then they still make our life more interesting! There are some truly beautiful things to make our life a little bit more unusual and vivid. Most of them are ordinarily but they can make our life and the lives of people around us a little bit more spectacular. The question is: do we need these things? – Of course we do!
