This is the second story of anthology series “A song from the laundry room” it is titled “The scene on the wall”.
This story structures with 9 images records that its whole way to reach the particular view which is on the wall in my room as the poster.
My partner Seiko lived in Copenhagen and I visited her in late summer 2019, it was right after I got panic attacked. I took a break from everything and travelled that is meant to be healing journey.
Seiko bought a bicycle for me before I arrived. Thus we could bike everywhere.
It was on foggy Monday at the late August, weather wasn’t hot as I expected for the season “summer” in general. She didn’t tell me where we go, She just told me “Let’s bike to my favorite suburb in town.”
We rode bicycle to up north of Copenhagen, suburb called klampenborg. Well known for a cluster of building project by Denish Modernism Architect Arne Jacobsen.
I didn't know much about it then and now. Whatever the reason, we made it to the view. Like serendipity, it was. I found myself in the scene I had seen in my room.
Afterwards, I read an article like “Since when travel is becoming like confirmation process?“. It is so? mine definitely wasn't.

A song from the laundry room
“A song from the laundry room” is my latest anthology short story series which seems it doesn’t make any sense for someone else. However, I personally have it as a small treasure of my life.
The title of the series “A song from the laundry room” is named after the sentence from Brazilian author Clarice Lispector’s novel.
