Living here day by day, you think it's the center of the world. You believe nothing will ever change. Then you leave: a year, two years. When you come back, everything's changed. The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. What was yours is gone. You have to go away for a long time... many years... before you can come back and find your people. The land where you were born. But now, no. It's not possible. Right now you're blinder than I am.
Who said that? Gary Cooper? James Stewart? Henry Fonda? Eh?
No, Toto. Nobody said it. This time it's all me. Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder.
