In Search of Soul - an artist's confession

"Looking over the desert plaines in southern Algeria, I realize that wherever I go, I can never escape from myself. This blazing sun, this scorched valley, what does it try to tell me? Does it only want to show me beauty? Does it want to drown me in melancholy?

I'm a fool. I had it all, but I didn't appreciate it, I didn't even try to be content with the way things were. This crazy human life, it makes me laugh. If I only could forget myself, fade away, be one with the universe...

My heart cries, but maybe tomorrow it will rejoice again, finding strenght to go on.

So heavens, I make, I create, for you to endlessly wonder about me..."
