" In her mind smoking also has to do with love, although she finds it difficult to define this feeling exactly. An unhappy love! She inhales the smoke deep into her lungs with a longing to be filled, to let herself be imbued, and has inhaled and exhaled for year and years without quenching her thirst. It is a miracle that the smoke doesn't pour out of every opening of her body. As for love, she also finds it in the sea, which is able to embrace a person completely, to give support and the feeling of floating."
