Q: how do I search for my name?

A: Do you know?

I was with my parents in the car during a traffic jam. It was then when I saw this man heading towards "the empty seat" because he was visibly tired.
My father started driving on and therefore it was a spontaneous shot but after taking a closer look at it I could feel cold shivers down my spine. This man reminded me of an exercise I took part in during a theatre workshop.It is quite hard to explain and understand(unless you took part) Everyone had a partner and the trainer would ask us to imagine/visualize our partner at different ages : four,ten ,twenty,thirty and eighty each time telling us the following : Hey,how are you? ; I am happy ; I am tired.
After that I (and everyone else) had to visualize my mother's face instead of my partner's and then the face of a person whom I hadn't seen in a long time and whom I would probably never see again. Needless to say that at this point (if not earlier) everyone started crying.
This man reminded me of that moment. It was a great experience and really made us reconsider what we want from life.
