Text:
The bureaucratic tightening of life, the colours which are all the same, the days which are all the same, without knowing where to go. It is this way that I can imagine the daily life of the people I meet. The disease becomes the central element of everyday life, everything goes around it, this is why there is no point in moving toward… Mothers quit their jobs, and society, implicitly, asks them to do so, we all ask them to do so. But, in doing so, that family world becomes "one way" toward the disease. The members of that family do not relate things to the real world any more, they do not help other worlds any more, only those belonging to the same household, those they meet in facilities and institutions. Perhaps, treatment means precisely belonging to other worlds, the world of the disease, but also that of being a man and a woman, a friend, an acquaintance, a citizen. We should pay attention to the people we meet, in order to allow them to clearly grasp the difference between colours.
