" Often what we know or think we know about life surprises us greatly once we
approached to look for a better understanding. "
" Then the certainties waver. Colors change. Forms are stabilized. People ... are
more ... persons. Everything takes on a new meaning accomplished, a different
consciousness from before. "
" Visual field narrows and the reality is all around us, in that times we would
run away ........ but not this time ... no ... not this. "
