Like the Pinball amusement machine where the ball goes from side to side, up and down and at very high speed, Domando a Pinball travels in the same way trying to tame the will to scape from situations and limtis.

Wishes, Pulses and Gains to expand oneself can show up strongly and become a real problem for someone who has been tamed for long time.

Hiding wishes is something that makes us more human, fragile and vulnerable but at the same time give us force to face those wishes ,we need that little bit of pulse, risk…like jumping to the void, just at least to try and not to go down and be tamed.

“The impulse progresses to a will, the simple wanting to desire, the desire to an uncontrollable longing.”

“There is no passion in nature as demi- tively impatient as that of the one shivering on the edge of the precipice, consider the idea of the fall, or the one who meditates on the question:” Am I ill? ”
Edgar Allan Poe.
