It was the tide brushing against your toes that brought you back to your senses. You opened your eyes slowly and let yourself adjust to the glaring light of the sun. Once you were completely adjusted, you sat up in confusion. You had no idea where you were or how you had gotten there. But that was the least of your worries, all you cared about was finding Wonwoo.

The Vertical Departure Paris Burning Photo Hugh Ardoin

Scrambling to leave some hostile shores or impending doom

People are no more than distant shapes hurrying away before the incoming storm

The train is just like a spaceship ready to leave a long rocket launcher that will position our living modes into a vertical lift-off

Departures bear the sweet and sour taste of exoduses and no-returns

You walk away with your hands stretched vainly trying to grasp the shards of your future

Every journey is an adventure in its own right, you may or you may not come back
