I don’t know what I’m looking for under my feet while walking along the beach: amber or lost buttons, or maybe piece of glass, washed out by waves. But whatever I find – it doesn’t matter – it will still be useless thing among a thousand other unimportant finds.
But if I could find a person, a meeting, a conversation that would change me, teach me – albeit a little bit – then I would not be looking for unnecessarily.
Actually, the search is not needed on the outside, but on the inside, the other person can only help – there is no better mirror than the other person’s eyes.
Unfortunately, when we search, we look only around ourselves and look at familiar forms, missing out on millions of sand grains that are irrelevant because we think we know them.
But is it really? Maybe something new is already along the way.
