"We were making Green lights. And while we made Green lights we talked. I asked them to tell stories about the last cup of tea they had before leaving home. (…) The circle of stories began with halting incomprehension, and ended with a sudden flash of understanding. The borders, the border guards, the endless humiliation of the production of papers and narratives, the violence of waiting—all of these can be suspended in a moment of laughter, or in a random act of generous sharing.
And this is what we learned, again: freedom is like a little green light in a very dark room, that allows you to see yourself, that allows you to see other people and allows you to see the way to the door."
