” …the baptism of solitude. It is a unique sensation, and it has nothing to do with loneliness, for loneliness presupposes memory. Here … even memory disappears; nothing is left but your own breathing and the sound of your heart beating.

‘Their Heads Are Green And Their Hands Are Blue’ – Paul Bowles
