A spirit cries out for a spirit.

A human asks where he’s coming from, where he’s going and who he is.

An artist prophesies and yells, I am.

 

I study the spiritual dimension and feel the vibes of the personal truth.

The language of the spirit is usually made up of images or music, which in my case is most often an abstract picture or a conceptual sign.

The existence of the spirit is manifested in matter, flesh and blood.

What cannot be proven, yet can be seen every day.

What cannot be seen, yet can be felt every day.

 

Freely you have received, freely give.
