daydreaming

daydream 1. to dream vaguely. 2. to imagine. 3. to fantasise. 4. to become lost in reverie.

Finding myself among thousands of people who had gathered to celebrate the new year, I wanted to enter each person’s mind and record their thoughts before, like flickering apparitions, they slipped back into the subconscious, where they could never again be examined.

In front of me, a lone spectator became my channel of communication with the crowd. Through those eyes, which I never saw, I glimpsed that uncertain mental space where worries and desires are kindled and extinguished, where intimacy sparkles. and, while each person returned to the secret path of their existence, amidst the chaotic meeting of bodies which almost touched each other, yet drew back, I sensed the un-shareable solitude of our own existence.
