"But having fun doesn’t make changes. Although I feel relaxed while climbing a mountain, my mind is conscious of forms, shapes, scents and colors found in nature. As for music, I drown myself into lyrics while listening, closing my eyes trying to imagine any corresponding imagery. I carefully observe narrative techniques and timing of each dialogue during a movie. Films like “Into the Wild” or “While We’re Young” that provide rooms of thinking and discussion are my favorites. Indulged in reflection engendered naturally is never a burden; in fact, it makes my life fun and enjoyable because I put thoughts into it."
