  • All these years I have halved apples vertically before eating them.

    Today, for some reason, I halved one horizontally.

    I found inside a hidden star.

    Now I look around me carefully, sniff like a scenthound, try to turn familiar stones of my everyday life in a new way, thinking that there might exist a whole hidden universe around me.

    A vivid, unexpected parallel reality that I am not able to find if I stick to my old, deep-rooted habits.
