To get lost in the city.
To submerge yourself in all the impressions and the people and the noises.
The smells and the opportunities.
The food and the music. The traffic and the vibration.
I look at all the people. I try to imagine their lives.
I think about mine and realise how incredibly lucky I am.
How much opportunities came my way.
I hope i was able to catch all of them.
I think about how life seems to have slowed down a bit, and how i love that. How that makes me so aware of the things i think, feel, want.
I try to practise to put that in perspective.
To realise that my thoughts, feelings, wants and needs are just that. My own.
When I look at what is going on in my mind and at the same time try to be aware of the otherness, the uniqueness of someone else, there is a sense of timelessness. A calm.
A space where breathing is always possible. Where love is always possible.
I hope everybody gets to be there sometimes.
