“I became a pilot, I lost my job and I never landed. Looking things from above make you stranded somehow. You see dazzling dotted towns where people live; you know or fancy what they do but you are not really part of them; you connect the lights of a city with another one following the string of glowing freeways, you see the whole picture whereas the drivers only go from one point to another. I wish I had landed and not lost my job. I would be part of them and not be stranded amidst unnamed stars.” – Laurent Peretti.
