The idea of "air" seems to me the most beautiful - "ideas are flowing in the air". When I try to comprehend the air, it seems to me that I'm not working, but - a shaman." The author is sure that everyone has their own air. Every person - creates his own air that surrounds her personally, it is present around her, and consists of her own thoughts, emotions, intentions, and dreams. "The air around each individual is filled with the level of its own tension - intellectual, emotional and, even, physical," the artist emphasizes.
