The blood of culture is revolt! Monday, Feb 7 2011 

Even if culture has been kidnapped as faire valoir by a boring and bored bourgoisie, it was each time the sparkle of a new thinking, a new feeling a revolt against the mainstream mind.

I hear the wind of revolt in Mahler, Beethoven,  Schubert. I read it in the antic Greek philosophy, in medieval poetry. I see it in the impressionist, in the first hand spit on a wall, in each expression of human creativity who was a risk at his time and not a flattery of the wealthy.

Use culture shamelessly for your inner strength, listen to his hidden neglected power. Don’t stop at the surface concept using it for class division.

Lets us re-appropriate this wild deep spirit in it back! It is our all hard gain heritage who might help us to survive the driven short thought determinist.

They don’t fear anything more than creative sparkles of intelligence trespassing there own mind limitations. And nothing protects one more than the wisdom to know to be in a long lineage of courageous human.

Culture is a superbly dangerous revolutionary tool!

The natural artist Friday, Sep 24 2010 

If you ask children at pre-school who is an artist, all children say “me!”, if years later you ask older children, you still get some voices, as adults the most pretend to not know how , and to leave that to “professionals”.       WHAT WENT WRONG?

My mother(painter and art  professor) had  show me since early age to see instead of only to “look”, by stepping a bit away from the picture and closing slightly the eyes.
She used to pretend, everybody can paint, once they forget that they have been told that they cant. Creativity is natural to humans, the division from the own potential, comes later as societal dividing “pet training”.

To go through “art training” is one option, but far more important is to be aware of the conditioning who happen, who destroyed the capacity to perceive the world and to communicate it expressively back .

This non perception assuming that art is for “special people”, a restrict boheme  and some “experts” , during the rest of humanity has more “serious” things to do, shows how dangerous creativity&perception is to a dumped downing engine who fears to be seen for what it is.inhuman!

Don t restrain yourself by forcing yourself into “being good” in whatever domain, try to let go and enjoy the playful child in yourself so long forgotten.The inner joy is the way to YOUR  “great art”!

The  garden filled with those funny  smart worm pickers in the golden sun light, the Beatle song crosses my mind.

And I think of all those with broken hearts relearning to trust the open space.

Once, we have been birds in the sky, remember?

Set your ears free! Sunday, Sep 19 2010 

A generation is growing up perma surrounded by media noises, and social excluding through earplugs.

Beside evident dangers in traffic, more subtle appears on the long run through this new deafness, impacted by sounds reduced to a certain frequencies.The ability to understand “undertones” and subtilitys in communication decreases drastically, what leads through misinterpretations of situations&emotions.

Is systematic deafness wanted by those pretending we need these media gimmicks everywhere and all the time, and if yes, what for?

It might be sad to no hear the missing song of birds, the rambling murmur of faraway coming storms, the refinement of a string of harp,

But it might be critical to humans to not understand the true meaning of what they say.

Dancing with Purcell in the patch! Friday, Sep 3 2010 

Some take pharmaceutical mood flatteners, I take “Purcell” in heavy doses to ease up the rudeness of an ending chaotic era .

Cromwell the bigot went, delightful Purcell appeared,

Good to remember, after the harshest storms, a sunshine.
