THE OUTER SPACE
This solo is about you. It is about me. It is about me and you. It is about us.
When we meet we see each other and when we see each other, we meet.
I look into your eyes and you look into mine, quietly and honestly.
Once we get to know someone, the eyes can tell you everything. They start to speak more than anything else. Through them we can see but also we can feel and through them we know. Emotions are being expressed and the truth is written. We then have the choice to shut them, to change them or to open them and let them be.
By meeting each other through our eyes we start a conversation, we are communicating and we are connecting, let this be the start of something, or simply an encounter.
Deep waters. Still waters.
Furious waters. Wide waters.
Long waters, mysterious waters.
Honest and pure. Patient and loving.
And we swim.
We swim through and we breathe
and we breathe and we be.
You, and me.
