to draw the world..
A bell at an arch, at Palamidi fortress ..the city of Napflios down.. far, an island with Bourtzi castle.. Agamemnon kingdom, at Peloponessus..
The eye’s effort to capture all, to feel all.. to draw the world..
And it came to my mind some words by the great argentine writer.. Jorge Luis Borges..
“A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.”
