You might have heard different versions of the following analogy - let me share my version, which has been really unforgettable for me ever since I heard it: “If you take one of the most fertile and delicious banana tree from Alanya and plant it in Rize, it will not bear fruit; and if you take the most fertile and delicious tea plant from Rize and plant it in Alanya, it will not bloom”. One might ask: “Is it the fault of the banana or the tea, or even the soil where it has been planted if it does not bear fruit or bloom?”
Last week I had an animal dream - I was a giraffe and had a conversation with a fish. The "fish" was a person who was obviously very close to me (emotionally, not physically in this time of social distancing) and she was very disappointed with my behaviour. She said to me that she wished I was more thorough and had more depth. I looked at her in amazement, bending my long neck down to her, going into the depths of her water. But after a few seconds I had to stretch to catch my breath. At the same time, I felt a great need to keep an eye out for all the things that might come our way. I turned my neck to all sides to get the overview I desired.
