How glorious it is to be a human being

Audio Tracks 

On the vast and empty roads along the Pyrenees,
Two women are marching on a blind pilgrimage.
The one is carrying an unborn child in her belly,
The other a huge inflatable hemorrhoid on her back.
They meet a mute donkey with an open gaze.
Can he teach them how to be?
Is Wednesday their lucky day?
Is failure just a springboard toward success?
Is that the beginning of a big reassurance or a dead end?
