    Oh! When I saw this drawing my spontaneous reaction was: What is this? Two big empty spaces, empty like tabula rasula, and a kind of bridge, very narrow in the middle, but a bridge… Wow, there are possibilities after all! To fill the void! To shorten the distance!
    Soul conversations are like chocolate, like hot soup on a cold day – they should be cherished like gold if they appear! They should be sought after! I had one some days ago and it was so good!!!
    Thanks for making me appreciate it even more!
