Fiat Lux: Paradis sans Ombre / Paradise with no shade

 

CM-FL-04- "Paradise with no shade"  - Paradis sans ombres 

 

 I often work nights in my studio until day break, still in the trance from the struggle between sleep and work, I stand a few minutes in the front porch  until  words have left my mind for an instant. Just before the world awakens, I breathe in deeply and let my lungs fill in with a sense of long distances, of the cardinal points, of the illusion of the "Ocean" as if its waterfront were behind a few rows of trees a block or two away .
