Paradigms that ask us where we go. From the randomness of desolate sands to the empty sky beyond the mountains’ cusp? A becalmed mind, slowly getting lost in delusion or turning the corner towards freedom? Reflections on places riding on waves of poetry. Impressions taking form over time and space, into permanence.
