Description of your idea

What is the beginning? It came from the first breath, from the heat, from the water washed the skin, from the land that gave life. Perhaps it began from the wind in the hair or a little sparkle in the eyes and the fire inside, or from the solid ground under the feet and quickening water. These elements were born with our world and they are living inside all of us. Quarantine gave us a wonderful opportunity to stop for a while and to hear this beginning and to feel it inside ourselves and find the way to basics. Awake the life inside with a first sigh and set the breath with a beat of nature.

What drives your enthusiasm the most?

Mostly I am moved by the feelings. Daily routine usually closes people's eyes to their feelings, sensations, premonitions, and I think one of the main purpose of art is to return human to the feeling, because art is impossible to understand and analyze like a math equation, but you can just feel it!

Do you have any inspirational quote that motivates you?

Perhaps, there is no inspirational and motivational quotes.

Shall we print the whole "Alice in Wonderland" instead of quotes ?!

Though, there are actually two quotes that I really like:

"If you got in the theater once you will stay there forever. Like under the train,"

-Maxim Averin (one of the Russian actors)

"If you don't laugh at your destiny means you didn’t get the joke"

-Gregory David Roberts
