While I was practicing the art of rhythm in these few days in Berlin I had discovered something strange. All my muscles were free from tension and stress and my mind was quite clear. In my opinion it is worth it to feel that way of comfort. It is good to support my body which is stressed by everyday life. I wish this power to be in me – maybe if I will practice it in these difficult times, it will last longer?
