New nomads

I’m an expat. Moving around, feeling free AND comfortable is what i crave for. I remember being 8 years old, sitting in our little suburb bungalow, watching television (way too much of it, due to accute boredom) and thinking — “there must be a way to see the world, outside this TV screen!“. This must have been the 38 years old me, sending messages telepathic messages to the 8 years old me. 10 years later, some...

Le réveil de Blanche-Neige

“Le monde sera sauvé par la femme occidentale” – Le Dalai Lama Cette citation a de quoi réveiller Blanche-Neige. À la question pourquoi la femme occidentale sauvera t-elle le monde, j’adore la réponse de Claire Beaumont (via Facebook) : “Nous, les femmes d’Occident, sommes parmis les seules à avoir le pouvoir ET la liberté. Non seulement avons nous le choix, mais la RESPONSABILITÉ de mettre en place...

Stefan Sagmeister: The power of time off

Stefan Sagmeister’s 20 commandements: 1. Helping other people helps me. 2. Having guts always works out for me. 3. Thinking that life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now. 4. Organising a charity group is surprisingly easy. 5. Being not truthful always works against me. 6. Everything I do always comes back to me. 7. Assuming is stifling. 8. Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on. 9. Over...

Feel or Fill

This image must be watched in its original size to be read. I dont know what to do with this piece. I started it thinking it could be a magazine spread, and it ended up as a huge 16 x 8 inch print out. One more in the pile of my unused work, because of lack of energy and focus about how to promote my art. The piece express the way i feel about all the substitution of happiness which i see in our culture, and maybe you can feel how...

Join me in the QQ challenge

I found this Quality vs Quantity helper on Caterina.net, and judging by the amount of people who faved it on flickr, i am not the only one in serious need of guidance to reinvent the meaning of productivity (can one be productive by working just some hours each day?). As always, these rules look rather simple to follow, but i would like to team up with you and try to really live by these rules for 7 consecutive days – would you...

Think rather than run, by Lila Rogers

At Creacamp last saturday we had this discussion about art and money, wondering how it is possible for creative folks to earn a good living doing what we love. One of the necessary elements named where Examples. Examples of people who make it well, examples of people who choose not let the outside world – and by outside world i mean the part of the society that is sleeping high on media, entertainment, pills and fear, not able...

Dealing with ideas

Overwhelmed with ideas, me and chris often struggle with this topic. So much could be done, only, we are only 2 heads, and 4 hands. Which idea is good to keep, which ones are not? A pretty good conversation topic, if you feel like sharing a coffee with a stranger. I’m sure everyone has something to say on the subject. Some interesting tips are give over here (link found via guylaine) : 1. Creative destruction. Create a weekly or...

Power women

“… women in low- and middle-income nations were found to be more than twice as likely to be involved in early-stage business start-ups as those in high-income nations” Why this? Are these women better than us at leaving their comfort zone, at handling risk and insecurity? “In Russia, women were involved in 39.9 percent of all early-stage entrepreneurial activity, while in the Philippines they were involved in...

Inspiration benevolence

There is a silent revolution going on, a guerilla of creatives, leaving their footprints around. Goodness is spreading, slowly, but surely – and we each can be a part of it, but only by taking action, even the smallest one. The picture above is from Natalija’s flower gifting – yes, gifting. Walking around and leaving flowers for strangers to discover, on the wiper of their car, at the feet of their door. Botanical...

Being as you are, in the business world

In my spring reading list i talked about the book The boss of you. I have just found out that the authors have a blog to support the book, with resources for women trying to find their own way in creating a business, in the traditional business world which is often gray and dull. I could easily relate to the post called Networking for Nonconformists, or how to stand out when you just dont fit in: “When we started our business,...

Keeping a diary supports personal development

Sometimes people translate the daily stuff in words that affect us profoundly. I am keeping a diary since i’m a kid, writing mostly everyday – the good, the bad, and everything in between. Expressing silently my biggest fears and dreams is something now part of my daily routine, like a silent meditation, because i know for myself that the ability to put words on what happens inside me brings a level of clarity which...
