‘I sit in a living room. I am listening to a conversation between two people. Their conversation does not make any sense to me. Yet I listen. It seems to take place somewhere else, somewhere I haven’t been. I try to trace the conversation. I try to write it down. The more I write, the less I am sure of where the sentences come from. It seems like they are no longer part of the conversation I am listening to. I realise the written words have become mine, that they no longer exist as spoken sound, and that they no longer belong to the person who uttered the words… I am no longer sitting in the living room. I am in a place I have been, but have never tread.’
