“Other Speeds” is a story, a fragment of time without limits that aims to highlight and tell how our lives are lived at "other", often high, speeds, at distinct moments. A black sunflower, a willow tree, and a moth are three components that belong to a period of high speeds in the author's life and have been important points of reference.
The black sunflower, in "Black Sunflower", represents an object, a memory, a person or an abstract essence near which we have the possibility to distance ourselves from a too high rhythm, the same entity able to take us in a dimension only ours and of detachment.
The willow tree, as we read in the title "Near The Water", is not located "near the water" as usual, but in an industrial area, near rails. Willows are witnesses to all and sundry things that flow, such as water and feminine energy, but this one in particular was watching far more things flow. People, their time, their lives, and trains.
The moth is an entity that shows up in the night to communicate or share moments. Life at other speeds is also, and especially, experienced at night, in the company of thoughts, fatigue and moths.
