It is about a sharpened attitude to the world, words and literature, about the distraction of brief everyday moments and incomprehensible metaphors, “so that we can feel a sense of satisfaction after seeing the hidden meaning of things,” according to Virginia Wolfe. What are the days and dates, accuracy and the seasons, without the moments of being, and without the little daily miracles that are embedded in a long series of prosaic moments of non-being.
Monday to Tuesday is not so scary sometimes.
Successful organization could lead to some new achievements or some sense of peace and happiness.
According to Virginia Wolfe, life exists to its fullest in the brief daily moments of joy and serenity. “It is probably a little depressing to inherit, not lands, but a model for intellectual and spiritual virtues, since in all likelihood this unshakable image of the great great-grandfather acts discouragingly for the daring to compare with him.” It is for these reasons, and for a number of others, that we all have our moments of sadness. The glorious past, in which men and women rise to “unprecedented stature”, still interferes too often in the present, and it wears us down to such an extent that one cannot find faith in a man determined to create and experiment in this gloriously immortal century. Our anxieties, about being better than those who came before us, do not help us to express ourselves. One may assume that radiance comes not so much from sadness but from a spirit devoted to reflection and self-discipline. Then what else is left to do? The radiant determination and poise, a combination of qualities that make a remarkable character, help us concentrate and master the situation, responding instantly to all challenges.
By doing common everyday things, choreographer Galina Borissova deals with voluntary fleeting consent during the day, when our vacant abilities, possessions and gifts suggest that we can possess. Our eyes are lifted by the annoying day-to-day duties and our face produces liveliness. The presence of this incredible, timely and vibrant beauty causes us, nearly panicked, to realize our longing and at the same time to feel pride. Restraint holds us back until its resistance weakens, forcing and breaking through to the surface, flooding us with new facts and giving us a chance for new interests, anxieties and longings. Our impulses open the door to new gloomy views, where we cannot imagine how important sadness is to indulge in reflection and self-discipline. Control of the situation results from merits and determination without which we would not be able to reach, even momentarily, the achievements of our ancestors. But this should not discourage us from trying.
