French Guiana, in 1927.
Fear or joy.
This is what makes the heart beat, I thought.
I had never seen a bird flying backwards, flapping his wings with such a speed.
And it was even more impressive that he could stand still in mid-air, looking around. Studying everything about us, curious.
I was told it was because of the heart:
It takes one of the most powerful hearts in nature to flap their wings at such a speed, just enough to stand still in mid-air.
A lot of force was needed to satisfy his curiosity.
And then it became clear to me.
This is what his heart beats for: joy.
That comes from curiosity, this is why it never stops beating so hard.
It was easy at that point to understand that I would have never stopped traveling.
So I left.
