Searching for light in the dark, holding hands not to fall, walking in the fog, not knowing what’s gonna happen to us. We learn from each other. We are talking about the soul, the power of thought, science and the strangest theories on earth. Often we don’t understand each other, we argue and then at one point we take each other’s positions, still remaining on different sides. We call this «unsynchronized agreement». We are from different planets and we can’t help it.

Random notes from my boyfriend’s phone:
