Walking to vastness

While walking on the path of life, eyes like to wander around. And so, without even realizing it, at times, the way becomes very narrow. When things get too tight, enormous fear quickly spreads: The smaller space becomes, the bigger the dread of losing track.

Yet, if the gaze wanders and the eyes don’t see far enough into the vastness, it becomes easy to stagger. Consequently, the risk of losing balance and slip becomes a real threat. Though overcoming this bottleneck is sometimes not that simple, it will pass faster than you think if you focus on the greater distance instead of only what directly lies in front of you.

You can see part of Amsterdams Westerpark on this image that I took in spring 2021. As its name already reveals, the park is in the very center west of the city
