“Those are magical moments, when in a split of second I see something that is very clear before my eyes until the moment I wink my eyes , and this apprehension of immeasurability, perfection and even happiness has vanished. It is momentary awareness of fulfilment which vanishes equally momentarily“- Paula Zarina, 2014.
