During this period of lockdown, our habits have inevitably undergone changes. We are grappling with a pandemic, an occurrence that doesn’t happen every day, to say the least. This state of isolation is prompting us to maintain social connections through video calls and encouraging us to reclaim time for ourselves. For those living alone, it’s an opportunity to embrace solitude and listen to their inner voice without external interference. Conversely, for those cohabiting with family, it’s an unprecedented chance to spend entire days observing children and partners from a different perspective. When will we ever experience this again?

Change or Transformation?

Change can manifest suddenly, like a lightning bolt, or it can be carefully contemplated and meditated upon. In this instance, it entails a profound transformation that certainly has roots in the past but ultimately leads to a different outcome, much like the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Changes, often sparked by abrupt shifts in our surroundings, may revert to the status quo once those conditions return to normal. For profound changes to take root, they must possess the capacity to transform. Those pondering potential career shifts during these months must also consider that the enthusiasm they feel may diminish once life resumes its regular pace. This essence of artistic vision, reflected in both my personal endeavors and therapeutic work, demands courage—to depart from the familiar and embrace an ever-evolving future.
