Life has a tendency to emerge all around, even where we least expect it, or to reveal opportunities for curiosity we didn’t even know were there. You can always find – in the affection between two individuals, between generations, between peoples – an evergreen sense of co-existence, the moment we let go of formalities, of smugness, of our imagined selves. The moment we surrender ourselves to something new, something rediscovered, something liberating and something challenging.
