I ran my fingers over the books, feeling each story inside the coloured covers. I could imagine them writing every preface just as I’m writing mine, scratching line after line when words did not come out as I wish they would. For a few moments, my body became immobilised and I simply focused on what was around me. I was truly amazed. Bicycles everywhere?
For most of the journey, we walked in silence. The path was for the most part covered with huge trees, the wooden walkways were sometimes smooth and there was a unique and fragrant smell that especially characterised the forest. As I was advancing I could hear the sound of my footsteps on the sodden land, the birds were quiet and drops of water was falling from the leaves, so it must be raining.
In my mind, I imagined what it would be like to live on another planet without these stunning landscapes. In fact, I was curious to know how this place had come about, I had the notion that the best thing to do at this point was to observe every detail that nature offered us. I was surprised by the silence that I felt in the forest. – Fred, – I whispered, my rocky voice.
Today I will remember you like this, with a black and white photograph, more precisely black on white. As I was carried away, I began to dream, what would have been the session of the French Joseph Nicéphore Niépce in taking the first permanent photograph of the world, in 1826, in black and white.
Here the clouds looked like cotton candy. Anna climbed the ramp as fast as she could and jumped as high as she could. She could not contain the anxiety, the joy, even though she had a large group of tourists watching her jumping. – Anna, have you ever imagined jumping until you reach a cloud? – ahahah – laughed Melanie – Well, I think you got it.
BROOKLYN! BROOKLYN! These words rang hard in my ears. My body reacted to them, I felt the noise of the cars the accelerated pace of the people who were around me. I can not describe in words what my eyes saw, but it was something pleasant, an unknown sensation. There was a moment of silence, but only in my head, I was truly amazed by the beauty of this city.
