Even a journey is born, grows, ages and then dies. But just born it is already big. It is able to use its head, to make us and dismantle us at will. After months of gestation, in an hour our journey will finally see the light. Will it recognize us? Will it look at least a little like us, too? Will it love us? We expect great things from it.
