[OSList] Less that Open Space

If open space works for itself, there cannot be more or less open  
space. Well, open space is breathing,
breathe in - break - breathe out - break. In the break there may be a  
lot of hesitation. We expect that open space fits with our idea of  
open space. But open space is independent. It is what it is. Sometimes  
it seems to be more, sometimes it seems to be less. But it is always  
open space. And if someone or I myself is missing openness it´s on her  
or him or on me open the mouth or the mind or the arm to change the  
situation (or to go fishing).
My two pence.
