As She Calls Her Breath Back

10 Jan, 2023

In this place where silence is her only ally, she is becoming something else. A desolate land is laying under her bare feet as she is walking to nowhere. The others around her are likewise moving aimlessly. They are not communicating or sharing emotions.Every step she is taking is an effort as if her legs are numb. The quiet breeze is touching her skin but she is not feeling it. There is no sense of time. An eternal dusk is covering the entire land, as far as her eyes can see. She doesn't know where to go nor where she is coming from. This on-going project talks about the idea of the afterlife. In 2020, after I lost my mother and grandmother, I wrote a paragraph on a diary that said "If there is an afterlife, I would like to see you again" . This brought some questions; Is there a place we go after we die, if so, what does it looks like? How does it feel to be there?
