I was walking on the street one day, with a backpack pull of pinecones, and I was feeling like it was full of gold! It was the biggest, warmest inner smile filling my inner being with lightness. I’ve been doing a lot of walking this year, especially after in February I doubled my steps count […]Read more "Pack full of pinecones"
Your everyday-scapes are your magic escapes, your extra realities in your home environment. Surround yourself with beautiful things, with meaningful things, and you will see your inner home of the soul filled with lightness and warmth.

I’ve started walking and I found that gives me time to breathe, to reflect on all happenings in my work, life, dreams. I’ve been dreaming a […]Read more "Meaningful things"
‘Ah, the desert… since it only takes one passion to justify an existence. But that’s just it – it was passion for emptiness.’ – Jean Bauldrillard As nature awakes to embrace the spring and the birdsongs are bringing hope and solace to the soul, I’ve been listing in my mind the things I’m grateful for […]Read more "Passion for emptiness"
I really feel for those of you who are currently in a dark place due to lockdown. I’ve been dreaming a lot of crazy stuff lately and not sleeping much, it’s all reflection of trying to make sense of everything happening.
