The silence of insight overcomes the mind, the light is visible leading to a new dimension of thinking, because everything is visible through the transparent eyelids of the vigilance of fear, and only unconsciousness temporarily closes our eyes from fatigue in the realm of the subconscious.

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life." - as ᗅᗺᗷᗅ said it so appropriately. Never miss a chance to dance, and the last laugh will always be yours. Continuer danse, Danser étoile!
