Always the same anxiety. A white sheet. It does not matter whether it is A4 size, the shape of a monitor screen, a camera viewfinder. The magic of creating meaning. I don't read books. I read sentences in books. For me, every line, every image is a story. Their place and shape is the effect of thinking. In thought, a construction is created. And it is a process, it is a journey. An orange consists of what is seen and what is inside. I value the latter more. Meanings are free from matter and appear suddenly. I fit "boxes" for them, address them and send them on another journey.
