Some years ago I saw my self. I met my identical WE …..and it scared the hell out of me! It freaked me out! It was so intense that I paralysed….paralysed and then I started running. I ran…faster than my legs could carry and my feet were bleeding. Blood in my running shoes. I ran into all the dark corners I could find…to hide…to hide from the MIRROR-ME. And it made me sick to my stomach!! Sick to my guts!! How could I be such a fool to run away??!!
Now I am not running anymore. I handed in my running shoes a while ago. They are the leftovers of a lesson learned. I’m slowly walking now….enjoying the view. I don’t want my feet to get burned again 😊

I started BREATHING about seven years ago, in February 2010, when I was going through a very rough patch and intensely felt the need to reconnect. Right then, at the time that I was suffocating, LIFE brought me the Japanese dance form BUTOH and shortly after I started practicing YOGA. I love both forms for the same reason, the same ‘thing’….the BREATH….ANIMALIS..
After all….you don’t need much to find TRUE HAPPINESS (is) (within yourself).
