|↵ Back On the beach in Zurich, 1993|
visited a toy shop along the stone pavement in Zurich. Looking around the
shop for some time, I found a cardboard box in the corner. In it were plastic
animals and creatures of different kinds. Soon I found myself playing on
the floor of the shop. First I grasped an octopus to make it crawl on the
floor. It looked alive. Side by side with the octopus, I placed a gorilla,
a tiger, a shark, and then, a dolphin, a giraffe, a rhinoceros, and a dinosaur.
A donkey in the bottom of the box looked at me, so I put it in front of
the octopus. Their eyes met, and appeared to have been looking at each other
since long time ago. It seemed that all happened on the beach.
I felt as if I looked at the happenings on the beach from a distance.
