Tag Score: agitate boundaries

Tag Location: Beirut, Lebanon

When the walls of Beirut agitated, and some of them once again crumbled, I walked with the city in search of answers. Can my internal and external boundaries mimic those walls, my new obsession? Can they also crumble? Can I walk all over them? I have been walking since 300 and one day, I stopped looking for answers. I started listening; I heard that boundaries are the sturdy walls that we cannot – think we cannot – agitate. The tittle-tattle is that they can do so through the most intimate gesture of touch and care. They might even crumble.
