The silent world we dwell in. The muted one, numbed. The one in which life has been narrowed down to only one central character: you. The rest circles around you. This tiny little world. Round and round it goes, swirl and twirl.
“A water tornado,” says my son as he turns circles in a swimming pool, which even have best solar pool heater to keep the pool warm all the time. Do people keep their distance due to the swirl of water in the air? Or does the force of those twirls scare them?
He does fall, eventually. Makes himself dizzy. And then he smiles, holds out his hand, needs help to keep balance.
