How social media messes with the very point of art

Does an artist, really, have to stay on social media to survive, or, do they sometimes need to detatch from social media in order for the artist in them to survive? Hmm, discussing this one outloud… Continue reading

Feedback

Receiving feedback is an entirely natural and healthy part of life but the quality of our lives can depend, quite majorly, on where we tend to seek it and the reasons why… Continue reading

Cosmic romance

What does the almost universal, in-built, longing for the big finale, the happy moment of consummation, tell us about ourselves and the fabric of reality? What is it that we really long for? Continue reading

Stop using the path and you will surely lose it

It takes Nature no more than the blink of an eye to take away what she giveth; unless we indicate, quite clearly, just how much we are interested in keeping it, how much we appreciate what we have “in care” from her bounty…only then does she relent. Continue reading

Living in the everywhere

How much does our ingrained concept of time being strictly linear perpetuate the sense that “past” or even “future” is some remote, inaccessible thing with a volume of space keeping us apart from it? How much healing and other potential do we miss when we adhere to such thinking?? Continue reading

No time to waste

Its more than possible to halt our our metamophosis with where we direct our minds (our habits and our comfort places). For instance, where is the contempory fiction that looks forwards, not to the topics of war, or cancer, or horror, or divorce, or past-trauma, or dsystopia, or kitchen-sink drama, or fluffy romance? Where is all the optimism, combined with new thinking and the sheer force of imagingation that is fiction?? Never forget that reading is how we sow seeds in the fertile ground of our minds; so, as any gardener knows well, be mindful of the quality of the soil but also of the kind of seeds that you sow.
