From Milla January 200401.03.04
these pictures are so special, because they represent a time in my life where i was able to capture the magic & wonder that we all try so hard to never lose... but as we grow older and feel roads close around us, the magic just... slips away. but, when i look at them, i always know that it's there, totally accessible, if we INTEND it with utmost conviction. that's also why i continue to make movies, to keep my ability to BELIEVE intact... i hope everyone likes them. Anno, Chris & I were all together for the last time on this trip. we hardly slept, all we could do was laugh, take polaroids and feel so... blessed with eachother. a week after, Anno and the boys died. i wanted to share these with everyone, so you could get a bit more of a picture to put with the music... we were all so very close and of course it seems that it was TOO perfect, magic is good/bad like that... the sweeter the memory, the harder it bites when it's gone and that's another endless paradox of life. anyway...
