“To see a wave one must perceive all its simultaneous components and understand the correlation between them.

As my body entered the room, I could hear the air beating. Drops were glazing from my skin; dripping, falling, trickling. My gaze was drawn to the architecture of the room and I could feel a sensation surrounding my ears. It was a hissing sound approaching me, but as soon as it arrived it faded again. Where did she disappear to? This refreshing feeling she gave to my body created a sense of peace and well-being and all I could think about was wanting it back.
I could sense the air breathing, because I was breathing it too. Water evaporated into the air, and I needed it to protect my skin. The more time I spent in this room, the more I wanted to grow and evolve. My existence did not go unnoticed either, my skin pulled water and air, and the more I absorbed, the more I transformed. Nothing ever stays the same.
Have you ever seen such a simple mechanism that constantly arises and vanishes? Almost like a wave, rhyming with varying frequencies. While standing in this room, I could feel my surface rhyming with all that surrounded me, and all I could do was simply evolve and be.” S.N. (txt.pdf)
