Insomnia is the opposite of sleep.
It is a state in which we are constantly alert…
because rockets and bombs are falling overhead, and you can't fell asleep... but, on the other hand, you must always be ready.
This is a sign of resistance that does not allow us to sleep in the face of war and in the eventually emerging feeling of indifference, boredom, routine.
Memory cannot be erased..
Insomnia is also the companion of people fleeing war... it's also the comrade of people accepting the refugees.
In the face of war, we are no longer asleep... we are in a constant state of alertness...
anxiety, anger and hope choke sleep…
