“A meal? Here? Like in the old days?
I do not know. It’s been so many years since we set the tables on the street…! ”
What happened to us? What lurks behind the door of an abandoned house, which suddenly creaks and reminds us of what we once were? There is a wound, we say, and it belongs to everyone. It hurts because it manifests itself in many losses in everyday things. It hurts because our memory hammers and insists on telling us that we can live differently, even if we live in this big city. We don’t know what we’ve lost will come back. Meanwhile, and naming what hurts us, we are here, in our wounded neighborhood, remembering and celebrating.
