I receive a newsletter from REELSEO. This week the best bit was this. No need to read it all for those who are not into video or online marketing but videos are really worth watching!

My favourite:

Le Roi et Mort, Vive le ROI!

What are you insanely great at doing?

What I always felt insecure about is my sticking to the realistic representation of the people and objects in my visual art. The problem with that is, as common criticism these days goes, there is not much creativity involved in doing that. It’s just a copy of the nature. And NOW I see it for what it is. (I am thinking along as I write here). I see things realistically. That is my way of seeing things – as they are. If I were a writer, I’d write realism rather than sci-fi, if I were a painter, I’d paint realistic photographic portraits rather than abstract cubes or splodges… You see, I wrote “if I were a painter”… Funny that, because I kind of am a painter. Just now, just moments ago I made a transition from a visual artist to … what? Who am I? I finished Me The Painter now, and who am I then? I am a helper. Am I a healer? That doesn’t sound quite right. Am I a facilitator, an inspirator? Something along those lines. I am kind of a little ahead on the path and I am calling the others to follow, I trod a path, I am a path-treader. Fun!

There are millions of paths, there are millions of path-treaders. I just tread and show one of the millions of possible paths, and most likely this path will be suitable only for me, but it might help someone to see HOW I trod it. It is about applying the method of finding one’s path rather than the path itself.

Or, yeah. I remember now. There is a term for it which I came across a lot recently. A way-shower. So that’s what I am . That, I must admit, spoiled much fun for me – first, I wasn’t the first; secondly, that term comes from those creepy alien, new-agey, spirit-channelling people… Hmm.

But I strayed away from the question.

Ah! The answer came to me just now! (I have definitely tuned myself into something good!)
I am insanely good at analysing myself and applying it to a human behaviour in general, listening, comparing, analysing again, learning. And I can see now where all of that is leading me. I am a helper. A way-shower.

I am having a special moment here… Sorry. Back soon.

Being ridiculous is fun!

with 2 comments

I am researching being ridiculous. Before I dive into actually being ridiculous. I know it is inevitable, but my mind needs some convincing in order to cooperate rather than sabotage. We’ll get there…

JR – Art to Change the World

leave a comment »

Everyone must see this latest TED talk by French artist JR. He takes it further along the road which Banksy walks. Or used to walk. This is the art concept which touched me like no other art for the last couple of years.

My story-telling wall of honour.

leave a comment »

I decided to start my story-telling wall of honour.

That came to me while listening to Elif Shafak – a writer of Turkish origin – giving a talk on TED.

Hence her name is the first one to put on the list, even though I didn’t read a single book of hers. I just loved her talk.

Now… the logistics of the Wall. I’ll have to ponder…
