SILVER LINING - A SEQUENCE OF POLAROID
When we argue about the future, we trample the present, this pushed polarised distance between you and me. Those nights that we couldn’t sleep, loneliness filled the time. Can’t we just live in a sweet dream and never wake up? In this suffocating reality, what keeps us alive? We have already forgotten our young faces and are forced to learn how to carry weight of the everyday. We complain about being born in the wrong family; the wrong colour; dreaming the wrong expectations. When we are afraid of losing, afraid of being eliminated, we must close our eyes and feel. Give up aiming for a perfect life. Life has no formula, only moments. Sunlight, air and water, the three essentials for human existence. Suddenly, we realise, we already have everything we need to survive. The morning sun still warm. The shining ocean. Dazzling wildflowers. The grass springing from the ground. These things are ordinary but strong, and perhaps they are why we are still here.
