The place we come from defines our life: the roots from which
we grow up. In my case this place is a small village in the
middle of nowhere. A piece of arid earth and dry crops. A sad
memory that makes my eyes completely red.
I ran away from there when I was a child, running out of
breath, trying to find kinder roots, a place with no fear. I
imagined a big city and a flat with high ceilings. I met
thousands of people, I made hundreds of friends. But one day
a strange feeling of melancholy grew suddenly inside me.
I came back to my town and watched the sky of my childhood.
That day the crops were intensely coloured in yellow and
orange, that dry earth was actually alive. And my eyes became
red again, this time out of joy.
