<< There is something so special and honest when we have the chance to freely move on the sound of another human being expressing himself through this lonely period. Human Signs is giving us the opportunity to connect. We should never miss that chance. Connect, breathe, move, be honest with yourself and accept what your body has to say. Take a moment, look around, watch your feelings free themselves from your body and slowly conquer the air.>>
