Say No More.

Summer arrives and hundreds of couples and families populate our beaches in search of the desired holidays.


Summer arrives and hundreds of couples and families populate our beaches in search of the desired holidays. Holidays that do not always turn out as they were intended.

Scenes of malaise among members of a couple replicate all over the coast... A quiet man with a lost gaze... a woman swimming in a waterfall of words seems not to register whether or not an interlocutor exists.

The result: “She does not stop talking...” (He thinks); "He does not speak...” (says Ella). In both cases, the expectation of a relaxed meeting outside of the annual routine reveals more than ever the disencounter of the word and the difficulty of communicating.

From the psychological point of view, we know that any alteration of the daily rhythm produces all kinds of emotional triggering. It will be that the labor maelstrom, the school agenda, the routines, etc. hide the darkest aspects of each one and that each one prefers to attribute to the other.

And it is at that precise moment that the alternations of the disencounter appear, creating all kinds of “summer activities”: every night, four for the boys, surfboards for seas without waves, eternal waits for dinner in noisy restaurants, little games that children and teenagers have summoned decades ago to get tickets that will never have a prize, craft fairs without handicrafts and riddled with objects made in China, mass gatherings with friends and friends of friends.

Consequently, the choice is stress as a way of vacationing, as a way of enduring the unbearable encounter with the other.
