"and we will be ready, at the end of every day will be ready, will not say no to anything, will try to stay awake while everyone is sleeping, will not sleep, will make the shoes with the elves, will breathe deeply all the time, breathe in all air full of glass and nails and blood, will breathe it and drink it, so rich, so when it comes we will not be angry, will be content, tired enough to go, gratefully, will shake hands with everyone, bye, bye, and then pack a bag, some snaks, and go to the volcano"

"e noi saremo pronti, alla fine di ogni giorno saremo pronti, non diremo di no a niente, cercheremo di stare svegli mentre tutti dormono, non dormiremo, staremo svegli a fabbricare scarpe assieme agli elfi, e respireremo a fondo, respireremo tutta l'aria piena di vetro e unghie e sangue, la respireremo e la berremo, così densa, e quando sarà il momento non avremo rabbia, saremo sereni, stanchi abbastanza per lasciarci andare, con gratitudine stringeremo le mani a tutti quanti, addio, addio, e poi faremo lo zaino, una merenda, ed entreremo nel vulcano".

"and if we where to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection - certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. we would realize that we have been having another life altogether, one we didn't even know was going on inside us. and maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real - this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. so just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives."

"e se noi decidessimo di raccogliere tutti questi piccoli istanti in un quaderno, annotandoli per mesi, di sicuro vedremmo in questa collezione una specie di filo conduttore. verrebbero alla superficie determinate voci, voci che da tempo cercano di raggiungerci. e capiremmo che abbiamo vissuto una vita parallela, una vita di cui non immaginavamo neppure lo svolgimento dentro di noi. e forse quest'altra vita è molto più importante di quella che consideriamo "reale", quella quotidiana, ingombrante, fatta di mobili e rumori e metalli. e forse sono davvero questi attimi minuscoli e silienziosi a scrivere la storia della nostra vita."

    "charlie can make you feel like you've been blind for ages. he's got that special gift - when he plays with his camera - he can shoot with his head, with his ears, with his heart or with his guts. he's got a special grace, and he's got magic. he's using charming spells to turn everything he photographs into something else. and the best is you can enjoy all this."
