THE JOURNEY BACK IS A JOURNEY TOO When I watch my children play, I often wonder what exactly is going on in their mind; what they are thinking about when they're highly concentrated on something and when they isolate themselves from their direct environment; how they experience their reality? I wonder why we all lose these intense moments over time. Most people cannot remember anything from their earliest years. Where do all those memories go? Have we lost them forever, or have we stored them somewhere, in the deepest regions of our mind, or in a tiny little room tucked away far from everything else? What if that room still exists? How can we find our way back to it? And how do those first years influence our character, our emotional life and our perception of today's world, our hopes and desires, our fears and dreams? Do these years contain the seed from which our character grows or are we merely the product of our DNA? Often, I try to return to those early years, my journey to the inside, to that one little room that might hold all the answers. The room of my childhood… my dreams… my past… my happiness… my fears… my colors… my emotions… my silence… my sound… my lines. Cover: A dormant volcano
