Early on the following morning, still half asleep, Gaia suddenly saw how every moment is wonderful and unique and forever lost. She felt happy and dizzy and sad at the same time. When Julia came home from the Archilab, she found Gaia crying silently, unable to explain the reason for her sadness. They walked silently to the thermal water pool in Campo Vignoni and Gaia swam for over an hour without pause. It was a cloudy night and the pool was in complete darkness.
