I like being alone.
To be in silence.
I like to walk.
Three sentences that could be a portrait.
I like the feel of my body as living matter,
Having an organic autonomy from my thoughts, be they related.
I particularly like to listen to the thoughts of my body.
It is another portrait, a portrait of the inside.
How I hold my head – how I hold my face – how I hold my interior features, a portrait is what’s to behold at the surface of internal shifts, the traces of me.
It changes, like a palimpsest of emotions.
An alternative route begins from within from one’s blood. A statement of one’s self.
To become present and emerge discreetly and totally.
