"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Ode to the Unknown

He was the man I’ve met but never known,
While being the man I discovered from other people’s stories: he doesn’t know me, yet I’ll talk to him one day.

He is the man who lives on the other side
Taking pictures of amazing invisible creatures while being part of the picture himself.

Life is full of unfathomable contradictions:
We exist here but we will also live on the other side, we’re just not understanding it yet.

Our life is a constant travel through a tunnel called time, or a garden of endless flowers.
All is relative, nothing stops; we are all here, we’ll be all there.
