“It's important to daydream... It's important to let your mind travel.”
Mette Jakobsen, The Vanishing Act

“It is in the heart and not in the words - not even in the most beautiful ones - but in the heart, in the skeleton bird pushing against your chest, wanting to fly, that we know for certain who and what we love. That is all we have, and all there is.”
Mette Jakobsen, The Vanishing Act

“His eyes looked sad, like the ocean before a big storm.”
Mette Jakobsen, The Vanishing Act
