Ego Burn

Saturday 14th of May 2005, 8:00 a.m. I’m sleeping on my bed; I wake up with fire around me. Not yet realizing what is happening, I run to the door, saving nothing but myself. After the flames are distinguished, I return to my house, it’s almost burned down to ashes. Originally, only the changes made through the fire are deep, striking, fast, fantastic, final… The charmed existence listens to the calling of fire… For it, the devastation is something more than a change, is a rebirth.
