Dressed by landscape at 5°C

My attempt at gardening here in Central Texas has been an unpleasant flop. Due to virtually NO rain all last year and I not wanting to go out and water EVERY day has turned me against standard gardening. It’s FAR easier to just go buy it at the store. I’m not giving up completely, I … Read more

What my eyes see

What my eyes see goes to form my mood. Faced with something harmonious, it also harmonizes my spirit. Without conceptual filters, without aesthetic canons. It is a simple and natural bliss: like an anticipation of paradise. Today begins the second wave of containment. There could be no better contrast. For three weeks we will not … Read more

Protection

The sense of protection that I feel coming from nature reassures me totally; it is a life insurance policy. Safety on life is something inherent in nature; it is part of the project. There is no comparison with our small means: police, army, laws, hospitals, insurance companies, mafias and a thousand other points of support. … Read more
