There lies an uncertainty in Faures pictures, about what is real and what will happen in the future. As Rilke puts it: Perhaps there remains some tree on a slope, that we can see again each day: there remains to us yesterdays street, and the thinned out loyalty of a habit that liked us, and so stayed, and never departed.
