The Dark Knight [Rises]

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity."

A photograph taken in a church in Catania, Sicily in the summer of 2014. The shadow of a woman I know well, or I seem to know well. Yet, this was a trip of infinite adventures and infrequent arguments. It was a trip of celebration of togetherness, of building things by seeing things. Of meeting those beautiful people in our lives. Of learning what unique lessons each culture had to teach. Of using it to grow our thinking, enrich our lives with experiences for I always believe that in the long run experience is what you get when you did not get what you wanted. So there is never a situation where you did not get anything.

And I call it the rising dark knight is because as I see today this dark knight has risen from the shadows and is conquering the fear - through sheer determination and diligence. It is opening up to an entire new horizon of possibilities, dreams, attitude, thinking and people. Not about judging, but about accepting. About striving to get better, opening up to new ideas and cultures, experimenting with reality, walking past traditional notions of right, wrong, good, bad, rules, or lack of it. It is only but the start, and it has yet miles to go. But the start has been made, and it is about further conquests of ideologies, ideas and conventional theories of the world.

Flying high, touching the skies. A bright knight!
