‘The blue of distance is… the color of an emotion, the color of solitude and desire, the color of there seen from here, the color of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go… Blue is the color of longing for the distances you never arrive in, for the blue world.’

Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, 2005
