Dear Solange,

i would like to come back to your first questions , the part of “”zooming in and out”, “being curious” and “dancing”.

Sometimes – if i am very interested in a topic, a building, a film, or whatever, somebody – i “zoom in” and  focus so much, that i forget the rest of the world, even myself, even all my worries and so on. So i ask myself now: What ist happening at such moments –

am i lost? – i don’t thing so, i feel life running through my body and the sensation of “discovering something”

am i present? – i believe i am, because i have no other intention than to see, smell, realize, feel…..what is in front of me in that moment

am i also in the “helicopter” mode -i believe, no! i can only be in one mode (that would be zoomed-in in that moment)

On the other hand, because of this state of mind i sometimes are nor aware of changes in my surrounding, i don’t hear if somebody is calling me, i don’t see what is going on in other places, i can hit my head because i didn’t see the low door-entrance beam and so on.

So i think sometimes i have so much interest, that it seems i am looking through a lens, able to see details, but not the complete picture. So i try to “take a step back” of even more, to see the overall view.

So i beliefe it is good to be able to “dance” in and out, forward and backward, and sometimes jump up, to see different angels, different views, different areas. So that is my idea of “balance” like a flowing river.

Thank you for your question, i feel very thankful to you. It gives me so many ideas and pictures to go on thinking and exploring. 🙂

See you soon

Martin
