« MEMORY OF THE MOON »
Going to sleep, becoming part of the memory of the hotel room.
I remember another hotel room, then another, then another, and on and on infinitely. Like with photos sometimes.
Spending the night in a hotel as if you are on holiday.
Summer 2009. At the station, I had bought a magazine. « First man on the moon, the souvenir album ». That summer, spent looking at each image in detail.
Keeping my eyes open, a little longer, two more seconds, the little lights of the Pantheon. Leaving the curtains open on purpose.
And I see Walter Schirra on board Apollo 6.
I found the photo again, and a sweet wrapper.
1 – Walter Schirra on board Apollo 6 2- « They didn’t know it was impossible, so they did it » – Mark Twain. (Sweet wrapper, winter 2011)
