The Beautiful Far Away
One day you find yourself in a familiar place overgrown with bushes and
grass. You realize there’s no better place in the world. You lie down in
the grass and remember your childhood.
Everything seemed big then.
You made up stories about every tree, the old pond, the flowers in the
fields and counted the shooting stars.
It’s a sensitive place, but all the feelings it evokes are cold. They are like
fragile and fleeting moments that have their own melody. This melody
can be both familiar and terrifying. It speaks of a time of lingering
feelings of nostalgia, emptiness and vulnerability.
