Dare to grow as a creative

Don’t just steal the style, steal the thinking behind the style. You don’t want to look like your heroes, you want to see like your heroes.

Austin Kleon is a writer who draws, that is how he qualifies himself. I discovered his work when I just finished art school and started working, and I understood pretty early that the 10 sentences he wrote to empower each creative being, were going to stay with me as a reminder.

Values as an ecosystem

We are passionate about bringing more meaning and inspiration into people’s lives. Over the years, it has become clear to us that living with intention and reflection is an ongoing practice, not a destination.

The Surrealists explored it all

I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of absolute reality, a surreality, if one may so speak.

Why a Manifesto today?

An artistic manifesto is a public statement on intentions, motivations or opinions of an artist or an artistic movement.

What if walking actively could help you see your progress more mindfully?

I started two months ago a challenge of walking 10K to 20k steps, 5 to 6 days a week. I needed to find clarity in my projects but also be less in front of my desk. I had a simple solution within my reach, an effective solution on the mind and a low impact exercise to get back to motion.

Walking, indeed!

More than two months into the challenge, I am focused and motivated. I have witnessed positive changes in my mood, mindset and daily work. …

A start to rebooting the body, mind & soul.

The trigger

I have always suffered from joint pains even from my childhood. My family used to remind me of the music I could do just by cracking my fingers and till today it could be an interesting hit.

It came to a point where my pain added to hot weather and health history pushed me into trying something I had never done before. I am used to fasting due to spiritual purposes but I had never done 24h, 48h, 3 days, to 5 days with no food intake at all. …

J’écris rarement en français mais le cri de la “ langue ” a guidé mes pensées. Grande admiratrice du travail de l’équipe Demy-Legrand, je n’avais jamais vu le film Lola, avec un des personnages les plus énigmatiques, discret empreint d’espoir et de fatalisme aussi : Roland Cassard.

Key Lessons of the time travel.

Time is a great friend, through ups and downs you become new, same body but your mind changes and mutes. Good news! If you think you have not changed, check well, you have!

I recently met two old friends from art school, with whom we had an amazing time in our first year, discovering and studying art and being enthusiastic about the new path. From those years, full of faith and expectancy, 13 years later: here we have 3 kinds of women empowered and growing.

^ What have you been up to?

The whereabouts of what happened in 13 years for sure are the focus of the…

Sometimes just seize the moment, who knows which lessons you need to learn… again.

Out of the blue: play

I am a more spontaneous gem than I used to be. I can out of the blue play, dance, sing, just “be”. One evening at the end of the year 2018, the simple call of play, led me into being inspired by ping-pong and it’s philosophy.

I am more into tennis, and yes the myth that from tennis you can play ping-pong is not true. I just watched the movie “Borg and Mccgregore” and I guess it was still playing in my head, when playfully a mate and I, saw a ping-pong table and it was screaming “play”.

Facing a good player led to facing pro’s

The mate…

A needed talk with him, when he bumps up into your mind.

First the talk should be direct and firm. No “dear” or worse “friend”, the speech to this acquaintance should be of the most polite, firm but dire vivid.

He is a person that knows sweet talk, he knows you and used to rule your world. The moment you decide to take control, he is eager to have a talk with You. Using more sweet words and tricks to have you back in his game.

_Things you will notice in his “engaged” approach towards you

He will be nicer than usual, I bet he has never been this nice to you. It seems like a complex relationship, well see it that…
