I left the port with a south-west wind. Around, above and below, moving structures, water, wind, stars, wood, floating landscapes in which everything moves. Everything goes. Everything moves out of place... Around, above and below, nets.
The destination is unknown and the sea we face is invisible. Visibility this morning only reaches our feet. We couldn't see the full structure of the sails or the distant profile of our boat in full.
