A sunbeam flooded the hallway,
its golden glow lingering on closed eyelids.
Breathing in the words of photographer Ernst Haas:
"You become things,
you become an atmosphere,
and if you become it,
which means you incorporate it within you,
you can also give it back.
You can put this feeling into a picture.
A painter can do it.
And a musician can do it,
and I think a photographer can do that, too,
and that I would call
dreaming with open eyes."
