Continental conscience

There is something about this continent. Every writer, published or not, ever to touch her soil knows what it means, but it will remain unspoken.

Listen to this:

He had disappeared into history as water in sand and she rediscovered him only now, when music was thrown over the sea. (Marguerite Duras)

Yes, it is storytelling. The profound deepth of storyness, where cinematisation has given up a long time ago. More than just a storyboard. Here is only sea, water and the sky.
