Reminiscing. 16 more days until my next big trip. For me every journey is a spiritual journey. A pilgrimage where I uncover new and old parts of who I really am, a journey where the inner experience is more important than the outside journey.
As I prepare to re-visit Israel after 14 years I spend time reflecting upon my life. I ask questions: Where do I come from? Who was I before, 14 years ago? How has the move to a new continent changed me? What were my identifications? What was important to me then? What is important now? How have I evolved and grown into who I have become?
Asking questions, keeping a journal, writing down my answers are an important part of my life. It is said that a life not reflected upon is a life not lived.
Only if we know where we come from can we understand where we are going.
When I left Israel in 1997 art was a very important part of my life. And now I this passion returns once again, with inspiration and passion and wild colors that I see spinning inside my head, when I close my eyes.
I love when the anticipation of a journey already changes me….
Please enjoy the photographs of the art I created in Israel.
