Izadora (listening to versions of herself)

##

A sunny afternoon. This moment belongs to Izadora alone, bursting into thousands of seconds, or extending one split second to infinity. In this moment, everything is possible. A scenario written by herself, or another self of her, for herself. A girl turning into a woman, a powerful female apparition who has lived ever before and will live forever. Moving forward, turning back. Izadora, listening to versions of herself.
