Sight and Sounds

They say, this is the age of cacophony.
In the social network, every hand holds a megaphone, everyone strives to make their voice heard. But often we just end up talking to ourselves. Because we have forgotten to pay heed to what others are saying.

Open your senses! With your nose, hear the tears of dolphins. With your ears, gather the taste of running water. Let your tongue see those fighting for justice, and your skin breathe in the rhythm of the run, and your eyes open wide and swallow the forest in a single glance.

Have you found it yet?
A tail wind blowing tidings from the Amazon—in the blink of an eye you see distant Kilimanjaro…
Open your eyes, and you will see. Lend your ears, and listen…

We are rays of light passing through the pupil. We are the wind on a summer day.
We must not miss this world.
