Little bit more about me:
I like to take an intuitive approach to creativity. I'm happiest when I'm in the flow. I guess that's why the Tao the Ching of Lao Tsu seems like such an important philosophic work to me.

I think "reality' is mutable. Once upon a time people wished that they could fly. Now they do routinely. I think the purpose of Art, is to impact people's ways of thinking.

Ad Reinhard one said, "Art is not the spiritual side of business." I'm down with that...

COURAGE

Your mind cannot construct

An image that will last forever.

Drop your mask.

When you embrace everything 

With the courage of a lover,

Torrents of flame

Pour forth from your heart’s core.

There is no residual ash.

The Long Slog...

One thing that has been extremely difficult for me to resolve in my life is the balance between creative freedom and remuneration. In my life this is resolved by working a gig as a sign-guy during the day and doing artwork during the free intervals of my life. Most creative people have some manifestation of this balancing act. I can't complain. I manage to hone skills at my work that I can later utilize in my artwork, and vice-versa. I try to effect no poses nor postures in the scheme of… Continue

The Source

One of the probable inspirations for this site is a famous quote by R Buckminster Fuller entitled "WHAT I AM TRYING TO DO" :



"Acutely aware of our beings' limitations and acknowledging the infinite mystery of the a priori universe into which we are born, but nevertheless searching for a conscious means of hopefully competent participation by humanity in its own evolutionary trending while employing only the unique advantages inhering exclusively to the individual who takes… Continue

Language is a Virus...

The late William Burroughs once said, "Language is a virus from Outer Space." It is an odd infection indeed, and yet as common to humanity as to be one of its defining characteristics. After whatever initial struggles we go through learning to speak and then read, it becomes such a facility with most of us to learn and adapt language almost without any cognizance of our doing so. Even so -- we are still 'contained' within whatever language "infections" we are exposed to. Learning to speak… Continue

May I start off by saying, English is not my first tongue. So, I tent to use a word that doesn't fit at times, yes I do that. If you see what i do, than you can see I'm about art for the people, not just for myslef's pleasure. I see that is is important to you that eveyone be the same when it ocmes to speaking english, well thats what important to you, not me, at all. At 68 year's old, I'd say best be glad I pseak English at all.........So
I'm not in here to be correct, I'm in here to share art for humanity. So, take that where you feel like it, its not important to me that I be correct...........
As mor eany more comments from you, I'd like to say, "Drop It", cause time on this kind of stuff, is a waste for me. I need to help the youth understand, not some grown up who gets stuck on how someone speaks....feel me?
With that, peace out!

Most danes consider Greenland/grønland to be a part of Denmark, like a colony ( similar to WW1 colonies) - However officially Greenland has gained "Hjemmestyrer" (Which means they are politically independent of Denmark and that they have their own 3-split or what it is called; The law making, the law-enforcing and the judges) they still however receive a lot of geld as the Germans call it or dollars as you may say in the USA, from Denmark.

The Danish monarchs (I hate monarchy) often visit Greenland to show that they consider Greenland an important part of Denmark...You might say that in spirit the Danes consider Greenland part of Denmark, but officially they are an independent country =)

Hey... Maybe its the mushroom tea speaking but my life is a blur at the moment =O everything is going fine and its already blurry like every action becomes past as soon as it is made - and every action is the best possible. Soon I'm a student and soon I am going to discover the beauty of nature =D Doing nothing but gardening and tripping... Life is a beautiful voyage man - and I have just begun...

You?
