The gifted Namibian musician, John Rock Prophet, graciously extended an invitation for me to assume the role of Madeleine in his upcoming video.

Madeleine embodies a drifting wanderer, a passionate musician, yet fate’s hand perpetually compels her to veer from her artistic fervor, ensnared by the somber and frigid facets of existence. She treads the path of silent endurance, navigating the abysses of life, the chasms of reality, and the fathomless gorge of mortality—where the creation of artistic reverberations finds no sanctuary, merely an audience for the tigers prowling in the underbrush.

In moments when the heart ceases to pulse and the waves still their tumultuous dance, when the chilling winds relinquish their bite, and the plummet over the precipice resembles a feather’s descent into a tranquil pool, the passage to Madeleine’s world becomes a narrower corridor.

I extend my gratitude to John for beckoning me, even without awareness, to portray the essence of my own self.
