When we got into the elevator, I thought, “And what if the elevator has a problem? Who will come to help us?” Then I lowered my eyes and I saw this sticker.
“Data Must flow” … I think, “I should too… Yeah go with the flow.”
We arrived on the the seventh floor. I left my luggage there and we went to the staircase, climbed the stairs and a ladder. Then we jumped on an air conditioning unit and here we are at the top of one of the tallest building in Paris. Yeah I know it’s not as tall as the Tour Eiffel or la Tour Montparnasse but you know, after these two buildings, Paris is pretty close to the ground.
Anyway, it’s 9am, the view is spectacular. The video hardly describes it (and is a bit shaky)
My cousin lived in this building… well actually he squatted in this building but that’s ok. It’s really not that illegal. It’s called the Chateau Albat’art and I think this project is cool. There were tons of concerts and artists living there. How to transform an old insurance building into an art experiment? yeah… you get Chateau Albat’art.
I’ll keep the video to not forget about this snapshot of life, this morning where I went a little crazier than average.
So many moments are forgotten. Sometimes because we did not take a picture, sometimes because we did not pay attention.
You cannot hope to go back to one snapshot. Revisiting, reliving a moment kills the magic of the original.
Everything is renewed but always in different ways with different parameters.
Like the sticker said. Data must flow. Yep… Snapshots must also flow. Ironically I took a snapshot of this sticker to remember to go with the flow.
I am not the same in every new post I write here. In every new sentence I say. I am older, changed, different, my brain has evolved. New connections have been made and others destroyed.
I would like to go back to Chateau Albat’art, but now everything is different, it’s almost foolish to try to recreate it. Parameters are so numerous than it’s clearly impossible from a physics point of view to get back to the magic of the moment.
That’s the question. What is now that can enlighten us?
Let’s find the things, the moments, that makes us feel good. Right now for me it is writing. I am amazed at the capability of our brains to transform biochemical and electrical signals into words that are transmitted around the world.
What snapshots did I miss today? I don’t care… I probably missed some important ones or maybe I was there but was not willing to pay attention.
What have been your snapshots lately?
What are the ones you forgot on the way?
