“Sometimes, it happens and you catch things in their childhood: the small yard, the tiny kitchen, the small lemon-tree, and the small lakes. You realise how a trivial thing is time, if you are not a registrar. And you throw your line into the events in order to fish, simply, the small volubility of the waters, a reflection, a blue transparency. The rest of it and especially in a crude situation is useless to you. They produce benefit, but not oxygen.
Odysseas Elytis, Private Road”
