It has been an honor and a pleasure to help you flourish and get better.

It was not always pleasurable in the moment

Out with the old, in with the new.
And better get better or else…

I am “an old-school study” {SM1712}

an old-school study

I used to tell people, I am an open book, but I realize that is not a fair representation of who I am. At all. On forward I will rather use a more sophisticated, a more multifaceted metaphor and refer to Myself like “an old-school study”

If you are not familiar with an old-school study, you may want to read more about the study I metaphorically refer to. It is a room in a house dedicated to learning.

It is a calm place, with a rather rigid structure. Earthy colors: browns, blacks and dark greens with walls painted in a color of sand, or maybe terracotta. The light in this room is rather intimate – you could say romantic. The study is like a glade, a clearing in a forest of wisdom or a cave in the mountain of knowledge… Imagine solid wooden furniture, a massive wooden desk with a heavy leather armchair – more like a throne – sitting behind it. Heavy wooden bookshelves and cabinets dressing the room walls, yet all four corners empty, deserted from any furniture or decoration. A sturdy picnic style table with benches fixed to the floor framed by extra solid and simple wooden chairs: this is where the studying can happen.

The room quite stoic, remains unimpressed by superficial noise and invites, inspires to calm down from the else hectic and antics of the busy self import. an impressive library of books, handpicked and well looked after, treated with dignity and respect. They are called the Silent Masters in this place as the fair representation and reverence to the invaluable service they provide us with: knowledge, wisdom, teaching and guidance throughout different often difficult walks of life. The library also consists of choice media as well as other suitable tools for teaching and learning.

Most at plain sight, in the many shelves of the library; yet some also presented behind glass doors, to be admired from afar and only touched by those who have proven worthy of that privilege. Yet other items may be locked away behind doors of solid cabinets, or in the drawers of a commode; a dresser. Not everything is on display for the curious (or unprepared) eye to feast on. These closed doors do spark the imagination and curiosity, creating a sense of mystery and secrecy owed to those items kept out of sight, for very good reason. Only those initiated into their close circle will be discovering their purpose and unlocking their promise in due time.

Even the objects in plain sight are not displayed all at convenient height. Yes, most books are placed in shelves that can be easily reached, with no or not much effort. There are directories available, or you just take the time and stroll through the titles like through a forest of knowledge and let your gut feeling guide you to the readings that might spark your interest or peek your curiosity.

However there are also quite a lot of items that are purposefully out of convenient reach. One part of those is placed up high, so that the eager student will have to invest some extra work into reaching those; stretch the arms, backs straight, or having to use a step or ladder to get to those lusted after fruit. The sweetness of success is reserved to the diligent after all. The steps and the ladder is available in the study, but the study will not do the work for you. It will facilitate and encourage your fruitful work instead with structure and discipline, with guidance and wisdom.

Yet other objects of desire are located in the bottom shelves, very close to the floor. The student hence will have to bend and bow down, or even kneel or crouch by the feet of the Silent Masters. Grounded, in that position of humbleness and humility they will discover what remains hidden to the “cool, cruel and clueless”

a little Daddy Christmas poem

Daddy, Daddy, the lil’ one asks
like their life depends just on that task

Daddy, Daddy, answer me

what will i find, under the tree?

Will Santa bring me: awesome toys

a dolly truck, that makes some noise?

Will I get stuffies or that doll

and candy chocolates galore?

will there be a little house

and a neat new pink-purple blouse?

Daddy, Daddy: I confess

I also need a mermaid dress!

and my coat looks all too worn

and please, I need a unicorn!

and then adds with whiny tone

Daddy, I wanna new phone!

Daddy listens, Daddy smiles

He has not heard that in a while

But when the tone gets all too shrill

Daddy cools down that too much thrill!

Come here, My lil one, listen please

Daddy speaks to the little tease

So many wishes, you have told

Are you sure, that you’re not spoiled?

No! no pouting – little one…

I know you just want to have fun

you did not mean it, getting wild

acting like an – ungrateful – child!

I know, My lil one, you have big eyes

and as not to spoil the surprise

while there is no guarantee

what Santa packs under the tree

I heard the angels as they say

Father Christmas has His ways

I heard the elders, who are wise

Yet only for children, who are nice!

Being nice, not tantrum dance

waiting, showing some patience

even though, it’s quite some wait

showing still some self restraint!

img_2017-12-07_11-15-081323997751.jpg

I also hear the Elves, they whisper…

Naughty children meet with Mister

Mister Wooden, Spoon or Brush…

better be patient and do not rush!

 

the vulnerability of the artist #food4thought

wp-image-63054598

I completely understand how it is tough for the writer, the artist, the poet, the actor etc. when you expose your art (regardless what your art is) the artist exposes their vulnerability, their very heart and soul. it feels much more unsafe, much more risky, to present that to (unsolicited, possibly unfounded) criticism. even more so, than it is to show off our body, at times. after all, the way we look, kind of is mostly “per chance”, but our creations are our craft, our works. thus, showing that “baby” off feels much more exposing. the involved emotions will be more intense, more profound, bad or good.

thank you My artist friends and co-artists for not keeping your art hidden. for blogging, for writing, composing, for drawing, for sculpting, for acting, for building, for doodling, for coloring, for make-upping, for singing and performing, for photographing, digitally arting, for morphing and scrap booking, for videographing and for sharing: for artistically expressing.

it is so easy to hide it and be scared, so much harder (and better) to expose it and share it… victory is with the brave #StrictMotivation #wejustgetbetter
