Men moet de dingen de eigen stille, ongestoorde ontwikkeling laten, die diep van binnen komt en die zich door niets laat haasten of versnellen, eerst volledig rijpen en daarna baren.

We all have a strong tendency to look outwards into the world and have an opinion about all and everything. Often we forget to look inwards, to be aware and to experience feelings, emotion or sensations happening inside us. And also we are often unaware of the fact that what we feel inside echoes that what is happening around us. We are an enormous information system; a source of inspiration. And it is returning into the world through our awareness, focus and creation.
.
My biggest source of inspiration is life itself and the rhythm of existence and as a mild reflection, nature and the seasons. First there is birth than transience followed by death. After that the desirable period of rest, like winter, a moment of silence; the brief moment between the in and out breath. And than life is ready to start all over again, time after time.

.
Transience of life and also death are subjects to be avoided in our culture. I like to invite, to start a conversation and ask questions without searching for an answer. I am fascinated by the moment that life begins to fade. To me it is a mystery and perhaps I try to understand the daunting secrete, to unravel in order to be able to stay away from the inevitable ending. The mystery has an infinite beauty to be everlastingly examined and explored and curiously questioned.

.
And the point is, to live everything. To live the questions now. And you might live one day, without noticing it, slowly but gradually into the answer.
