My dreams your nightmare

We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life. As soon as we are born the return begins, at once the setting forth and the coming back; we die in every moment.”  “Askitiki” , Nikos Kazantzakis

When I visited the Prado museum in Madrid , the sector that impressed me most was the hall with Fransisco Goya’s “Pintura Negra”.  Was this work a result of the of the painter’s late years’ mental disorder as many critics mention or there was something else going on?  I’ll never find out , but I also don’t care to find out : these images are my prayer to Goya’s nightmares.
