LUCAS LOVES: Having sweet things for breakfast, laughing with someone I just met, going to the cinema every week, people who smile a lot, all the animals, renaissance art, women´s hair, Tuscany, polaroids, surfing, Pink Floyd, honest people, the way children think, our Planet Earth, the cosmos and the stars of our multiverse and the mystery of tomorrow.

LUCAS WOULD LOVE TO: go back in time and see the dinosaurs, meet Michelangelo and Spielberg, fly around the Universe, have great-grandsons, swim with the whales, meet the woman of my life, be born again as a bird, die while I´m sleeping.
