From Nowhere to Somewhere
you are on your way to Somewhere I assume. I am sure you will find your way – essentially.
How long did it take you to get all the way from the ground up the wall and out on our doorway roof? You do not care about time you say? I heard you!! Got me something to think about.
It seems as if you follow a kind of direction in spite of the loops, an inner voice telling you to keep on sliding. And when you reach the end of the roof, will you then calmly find your way down from there, or maybe you choose to return the same way as you came?
Was all this effort a waist of energy?
I never found out. I saw this tiny guy late night. The light made him translucent. May be that was the goal, to be in the spotlight for some short hours? Exposed, he was ruling the stage by moving in loops, like a performanceartist, extracting the moment – shining.
May be I will see you again? I will probably not recognize you, just an ordinary snail eating on a leaf taking a rest on its way to Somewhere. But still, there was something about that performance, something hit me…
By the way, I am sorry for the quality of my photos. For you it might have been the moment of glory, for me it was late night and I was on my way to bed, just felt I should get a snapshot…sorry about that – an unforgivable mistake. I´ll make up for it. Promise!! I´ll make a nice drawing instead, ok? One day, sooner or later…
IMPORTANT MESSAGE; I just received a message from a friend, and it became crystal clear to me. I have misunderstood!
This is actually a written language, still unknown to us. It is ancient, from before time. Now we can finally communicate with snails. But what about slugs? When I feed them with irresistable goodies they start making the same language. I wonder if I want to know what they are telling me?
