I focus for a moment on those seconds that have stuck in my memory. Somewhere very deep. I want to capture them so that everyone can see them, feel them, absorb them. It is impossible to get a perfect message, but this awareness makes me want it even more.

Dome, head and the highest point in the chapel. I look up until my neck aches. No, I didn’t come here to make my neck ache. Yet only this emotion has been preserved in my mind, in my diary.

Camera zooms out slowly.

The reality gives me an infinite number of opportunities that come my way. These various journeys, mental or physical, don’t always have to be distant. Sometimes it is enough to get out of bed and go to the corner shop and something extraordinary may happen on the way.
