  • I've lately started to wonder again. Wonder about purpose and life. My purpose and my life included. LIving in a cosy flat in a beautiful Athenian suburb it's easy to lose touch with reality.

    And then the crisis struck. And I started to wonder once more. I thank the crisis for that; for reminding me that I need to doubt and challenge and critisize, that I need to stay alert and remember who I am and what I believe in. I thank the crisis for reminding me of the chaos around me and of the chaos inside of me. I used to be afraid of that chaos. I wanted it to settle down, I was looking for order in my life. I loved order. But order is something stagnant and still. It takes you nowhere. Chaos is creative, it's dynamic and strong. It can lead to the most beautiful, unexpected places.
    "One must still have chaos within oneself to give birth to a dancing star", Nitzsche wrote.

    I long to get lost in my chaos to rediscover myself, my purpose, my life.
