Criptobiosis
by Maite de Orbe

When I think about what I am grateful about, I realize I’m most grateful for the things that I cannot rush. Lying back, enjoying the ride, I become more attentive, more empathic. 

For the last 23 days I have been experiencing the daily miracle of watching organisms grow. Inside this messy world, life always opens up a path for itself. Maybe, it is the poeticism of how delicate these lentils are, and how rapidly they’ve grown, but to pay attention to them once a day and to photograph them has been my way to retaliate against how fast everything else goes.
