We live in a period of suspension from reality. It´s a time of contemplation, pause, and stillness. It´s a moment to reflect on our impermanence and to understand the meaning of interdependence with all living beings. A period we can rescue the sense of citizenship and community.
We feel that the world as we know it is collapsing before our eyes. The things we learn to call reality are breaking apart, are dissolving like ink on water. We have experienced a moment of unpredictability, and we have to learn to take each day as it comes to be able to put our pieces back together again. Like the Brazilian writer Guimarães Rosa said “To live is to tear and to patch up.”
