What to do when your heart, your energy and your body murmur take the next step?
Watch yourself grow.
From the longest way website (which tells the story of Cristophe Rehage):
You said in an interview: “the most challenging thing was my ego”—so how did you converse with your ego? Do we have to imagine you splitting into two Christophes?
CR: “It is not easy walking around carrying a huge backpack, two cameras, a tripod and all that stuff. But if you are going to burden yourself with the additional weight of an ego that gets in the way of things all the time, then it only gets that much harder. I have a pretty bad temper, and I always dreamed of shaping a smoother character by walking. But I am not sure if that has worked out like I planned.”
