For two long weeks I was cocooned in my house. Both boys had a bad flu. Lots of worries, but lots of fun too. Staying home day after day, building lego cities and playing all games we could imagine. My oldest one draw two thick comic books! While my own creativity was blown out like a candle, without possibility to go outside, take long walks, visit the seaside. But I started to enjoy this period as soon as my kids were feeling better. It was like diving after pearls. When you lose your usual routine, when the things you love to do on your own are put aside, you have lots of time to observe yourself from a distance. You dive under the surface in the dim blue world, that is vast but claustrophobic at the same time, and search for something on the ground deep down between green seaweed and nasty sharp rocks. If you are alert and lucky enough, you can find a pearl of harmony, that is always within you no matter what. Between the ego bricks and lego cities. In that silent ocean between two thoughts. I’m glad I did find mine.
