Identity. Love. Romance. Escape. Hope.
Disillusionment. Mortality. Progress. Motion. Disorientation.
Horizons. Differences. Distances.

Talking Heads video Road To Nowhere


I’ve been traveling on a wing and a prayer
By the skin of my teeth by the breadth of a hair
Traveling where the four winds blow
With the sun on my face – in the ice
and the snow. . .
And if you don’t know where you’re heading
Any road will take you there.
– George Harrison
