In january 2016, when I started playing basketball after a 15 years long break, I was not prepared for such a difficult journey. I found myself unable to play a sport I had played such a great amount of time.
it took me 6 month to play at a decent level again.
And made me want to shoot a video about it...

"They say the past is a river you can never revisit
One day, I will.
I will plunge into its cold waters.
Tremble under the clouds
I will listen to the wind
Just around the bend
I will cross every bridge
I will reach the city on high
Return to where I was born.
There, I will be myself again.
There, I will be home."
