"My journey has been threefold. Firstly, I have moved through real space to release the hold of my daily existence and to experience something closer to "real time" in which movement is a commitment of a segment of my life. Secondly I have had the mental voyage, with its fogs and clearings, into my own past. I have gone back to thirty and more years ago and visited these sites as they look to me now through a long and faulty telescope. I have attempted to stick to the sequence as it occured and to follow the itinerary of my memories. Additionally, there has been a journey into myself, catalyzed by both the actual voyages and "discoveries" there, but also by the act of remembering and of noticing what has affected and remained with me the most."
