Breakfast Suture

Absence with presence trumps absence without. But presence with presence is the best of all.

Needless to say, though, the documenting of that double presence is structured around the absence of the documentarist. The will to record is also the will to remove oneself.

Still, I'd rather have the proof of our pleasure than mourn the disappeared. Besides, the trick of "Las Meninas" can be conjured with metonymy.

I was there, in that place. If I'm not mistaken, I heard the rustling of invisible leaves behind me. Maybe it was you.
