|wow! This is a work of art, saddening, however is a relief. I am not sure what city was or is known by the "city of lights" though I've heard it before. But, I am from Detroit, Michigan, USA if you happen to know where that is and some history of it. If you do not, my city is extremely similar.
I will never understand how and why money is so important, or thought of as such, to people. Without us money wouldn't mean anything. Also, the world was spinning before money. Therefore, it could go on without as well.
Not conforming to something that you strongly believe in is one of my strong beliefs. I wish people in your city, and mine, and every else in the world would understand these things that we speak of.
Thank you for sharing. I am definitely looking forward to seeing more of your work
