A Day That Has Everything
This could be a very ordinary day. A stretched, slow afternoon in which you can watch the play of lights and shadows, drink tea, read. It is also a day of miracles - a small event produces a series of unexpected events. And in these events the main thing is joy. The joy that you are able to feel the time passing, the joy that the world with its banality and brutality has temporarily withdrawn and the possibility of freedom, of carelessness, of play is opening. A day of carefreeness and depth, a day of lightness and seriousness. On such days it is wonderful to be alive.
"A day that has everything. A day when anything can happen" - this is how Boyan Manchev describes the perfect day. This is a day conatining an open opportunity. A day that has everything without being completed or finished, without being dead. A day when life feels completed without major cataclysms. A day of joy.
There is time full of many events, a time that flies away in a blink of the eye, a time when things pile on top of each other and you just sort of deal with them. And there is time allowing you to feel it, to think it. Slowly running time. Closed in itself time. Time without need for external stimuli, when the senses themselves sharpen and bristle, ready to take over the world. This time is enough, it has everything. Such moments are the morning moments of silence, when shadows move slowly along walls and floors. These are the afternoon moments of laziness, when joy and desire arise suddenly.
