Your hair is only long
if you can run around the world
always straight ahead
and then, when you’re back,
can stand on your own hair.
A thousand kilometres of hair, that’s what I want.
Things are pretty intense inside a little girl’s head, because the world is big and confusing, fun and tiring, frustrating and frightening, cold and exciting.
She tumbles from one bewilderment into the next, and discovers that it is she who is thinking.
That’s what her head is for: to think.
The world is complicated, but her thoughts join in the conversation.
And when she doesn’t understand something, they explain it to her.
The big issues of human life pass by at a restless tempo.
About growing up. About the world. About the family.
