~~~  Always (2019)  ~~~

I envisioned composing a capsule, out of space, out of time. It's a moment suspended in the air. An instant that could last forever as we remember people who shaped our lives. We might never see them again. But memories unfold vividly and sounds resonate in the chapel of our head, as if from within could emerge eternity.
