This is a collection of things I am interested in. Through these things I attempt an understanding of myself. They are unpredictable and often difficult to capture like clouds, trees, water, winds. This book is my journey of self discovery.
I walk in my memories. I walk in the city. There, I capture and record fleeting moments of things I love. Through this process, I give myself a chance to understand the reasons for this attraction. It also gives me an opportunity to understand why I want to find myself, and why I always want an exact answer to this question of who I am. I always tell myself I should live in the moment, and it is in each moment that I try to understand why I am captivated by what I can’t catch -- such as the wind, the clouds and the sky. In this book I try to understand why I want to wander, but also why I am constantly eager for the warmth of my home. In this process I ask myself if I should love again or allow myself to be loved.
I try to find the lines that connect all the things I love. I believe their paths will influence me and help me to know my own inner path.
In writing this book I hope I can understand myself more clearly.
