I had thought of calling this entry “Reflections after the hangover” in the hope of finding some image that would uplift and comfort the spirit after the end of year celebrations. If it was not done before, is it possible to reflect after a hangover? The party is over and now what? In Siscart’s image I find the representation of that paradox of the excesses that leave us empty inside.
