I’m about inclusivity. That means (mostly) when I meet people, I try to be open, to be as free as possible from pre-judgement, and ready for some friendly contact.
I’m about having and exploring a myriad of interests: art, culture, film, politics, economics, reading, music, cooking, being in nature, walking, hiking, authentic interactions with other people – basically everything and anything that can nourish me.
I love making pictures. That includes photography, drawing, painting, and a combination of all those methods and forms.
I love words. I write poetry when I feel a desire and need to do so. I write stories. I write my views, thoughts, opinions and reflections. I write for myself and also enjoy sharing what I write. This is one of the reasons I am attracted to creating a blog.
I love making films / videos. I love moving images and sounds working together. I find this the most difficult to do.
I am about other people; being interested in them and their worlds, stories, emotions, pictures and words.
I am obsessive and have addictive tendencies. These qualities have their upsides and their downsides too. I have a melancholic streak coursing through me, combined with a positive, frivolous, humorous disposition.
I am drawn to discovering both what we share in common, as well as what differentiates each of us from one another. I enjoy this kaleidoscope of being. I believe in deepening its mystery as much as possible.
The physical, the emotional, and the intellectual coexisting and cooperating with one another. Environment, people, and economy coexisting and weaving together not tearing apart. Playing and working a balance between key ingredients of life.
An ongoing communication; Receivers open to sending and senders open to receiving, and also vice versa in both cases. This openness shaped and formed through behaviour as well as attitude. Building and developing alignment as an ongoing process. Bridges serving as acts of sharing.
An ongoing mindfulness of consequences. How far and how long are we able to sustain a lifestyle? How can nature, economies, people, cultures, and technologies be woven together, on paths of sustainability – taking care of now in the interests of those not even yet born – not destroying mother earth but nurturing and protecting her from danger.
