you can’t go home again

I love that phrase. it’s so applicable to my life experience, and it was much later that I realized that something remains: I still look for bits of “home feelings”, or experiences, when traveling. this happens in Greece, and more so when visiting the Café Marina. Παναγιώτης has that sense to his café that makes me jump back in time to feel like I was home— in the sense of where I grew up and defined my sense of surroundings.

the tunnel

by fernand de Beauvoir

Juan Pablo Castel noticed María Iribarne attentively looking at the corner window of his painting, in Ernesto Sábato‘s El Túnel. here, there’s no loneliness in looking out the window to draw the attention of a María, for it’s just an offering in many contrasts to the principal play of geometries and shadows. there’s a loneliness at the top of the tower at Karluv Most (Charles Bridge), and in that regard, the loneliness driven into Juan Pablo Castel could co-exist here.
