Worlds far away

There are always uncomfortable things going on in life. Yet, at times this one thing does not come alone. And so another issue set off long before you could even imagine its arrival. One thing leads to another, and an endless loop of unexpected problems arises.

But at some point, the wild waves open up and almost wash me away. I feel devoured. As I’m almost losing the ground under my feet, I allow myself to close my eyes.

For a brief moment, I can escape the misery. I dream of worlds far away with the hope of taking them back with me later. I wish I could see this vastness also with open eyes. However, the limited focus and a lack of foresight are not owed to the problems but the fact that I let them drag me along.

I took this photo in Summer 2021. You can see a container ship on the Buiten-Ij which is part of the Ijmeer. The houses on the right side belong to Amsterdam. You can see this photo also in the review video 0f 2021.
