The Essenti Saga - Ch. 1 (excerpt)

MEMORY They were called the ‘Essenti’. Someone called them the People of the High Rocks, but they preferred to be called only inhabitants of the Governorate, in memory of an identity that had been changed over time, modified and lost. Ironic, because they were beings of a long life par excellence. They were, in fact, immortals. Like water, earth and air. Like light and darkness. But also like their laws. Most of them were new, although the concept of “new” can barely be applied to a society now without History.

- P. Rothfuss

Imagination is what makes life ungraspable. Undefinable.

The power of creation we are gifted with is something we should all use in order to explore new possibilities and experiences our lives cannot give us. Do not call me an escapist, cause I'm not. I'm just a dreamer, literally speaking.

What do I like?

Plounging in those whitish and silky surfaces that make our impalpable thoughts come concrete, black ink upon white paper, typed, handwritten, I don't care. What I do care, is what we can experience other than our lives, other than what we can see with our eyes.

Other than ordinary.

Human mind has the power to create.

So let's create.
