My life of poverty and abundance as a creative person (my story)


  Hello readers, As an artist and creative person, my prime preoccupation has always been freedom.  Freedom to spend the limited time I have on this planet thinking, dreaming, creating art and thoughts about life and art. The freedom to be a creative person can be conceived on different levels.  Each of us has to […]

Creating Balance: Nature and Culture


Hello readers, It hit me one day, many years ago on one of countless long aimless and solitary walks through Paris that all of matter is intelligent.  Not just matter, but everything that exists: gases, flames, liquids, the invisible as well as the solid.  Everything is as fluxful, comedic, and intentional as the ancient primitives […]

The neglect of the feminine is my subject of fascination.  The mystery and duality […]

Beloved Connection: Scamming for Affection and other Modern Past-times


Hello readers, Each time I visit my blog, I check the statistics page to see how many people from how many countries have visited.  It touches my heart and amazes me that, so far, at least one person from 56 different countries from all over our Earth have at least peeked at my blog.  I get […]
