“You spend your whole life stuck in a labyrinth,
Thinking about how you'll escape it one day,
And how awesome it will be,
And imagining the future keeps you going,
But you never do it.
You just use the future to escape the present.”

- John Green, Looking for Alaska

Emmanuel Knibbe avatar
Emmanuel Knibbe The importance is not so"free from what" but more "free for what", as Nietzsche one said. My freedom can easily be very inconsistent if i've no reason to live. Braves are the ones who find the light because they dare to embrace the darkness.
Another incredible existentialist work Maria!

Roberto De Mitri I ask myself how it is. be free and feel lost at the same time. perhaps like being in a cage, or at the edge of the road, and being afraid to open the door and start your journey... a beautiful existential dilemma!

Dana Winkelman MW. Clearly you touched many peoples imagination. Sorry to reply so late but I am traveling and behind on everything. I love the motion in the photo, it give a feeling of rushing headlong into viewer. Perhaps that is the dilemma; we rush to attain something that might be better discovered with some stillness? All the best. Dana...
