[ 3 min read ] Nobody is perfect the saying goes, however everyone can be perfect. What does it mean to be perfect as a human being? Who has the ultimate authority to determine what it means to be perfect as a human being? It seems to me (no, actually... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] The universe has no freaking idea it is called ‘the universe’. The space has no freaking idea it is called ‘the space’. The world has no freaking idea it is called ‘the world’. The earth has no freaking idea it is called ‘the earth’. The... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] X, first of all thank you for taking the time to read my article. I do know other words but I wanted to use F word. You see, as an intensifier I don’t see anything wrong with using it. The fact that I curse in... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think parents should be patient. I mean, obviously they may do as they please but I think being impatient as a parent is the path to the dark side. Or, to sound a little less dramatic, impatience will never do good to your relationship... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Maybe I am wrong. Maybe what I wrote doesn’t hold water. Maybe what I wrote isn’t good, maybe it could have been 10x better. Maybe there was something else I should have factored in. Maybe I should have given it more thought. Maybe I should... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Don’t just say I love you. Tell them what it means. When a child says I love you to his / her parent I guess it means one of the following (or a mix): thank you I feel safe with you you give me security... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] I think we’re aliens. An alien is something / someone we know nothing or very little about. Thus a non-alien must be something / someone we know everything or a lot about. We still haven’t figured ourselves out as species entirely. And I doubt it... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] If I had the choice to do it all over again I wouldn’t choose it but what can I do now … I can’t quit it. Objectively you can. But it scares the hell out of you, so you can’t. Objectively you can. But you’ve... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] I’m in my 40s / 50s so it no longer makes sense to change my career. Obviously it’s too late. I missed the time when it still made sense. And now, what is the point now? I’m approaching the retirement age. Retirement isn’t mandatory. It’s... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] We’re never grounded in reality. We’re grounded in what we call the reality. And what we call the reality is the story we tell ourselves or the story we’ve bought into. We’re all storytellers. They quality of your life depends on the story you’ve bought... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Picasso made a huge mistake. He married the wrong woman. Olga. Or did he? He described his life with her (apparently not the early period) as the worst time of his life. So it wasn’t a good decision. Or it was, but only temporarily. I... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] There is one very important thing all young people should realize. The reason parents don’t care about their children’s dreams and want to force certain choices on them is always the same. They want a peace of mind and a feeling that they did their... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] If you’re a young adult and want to realize your dream and your controlling parents use their dirty tricks (threats, ultimatums, guilt-tripping) in order to force you into compliance (because they have a “better” plan) neutralize those by saying: You can say anything you want...

[ 1 min read ] Your work might not be called art by art critics, but it can be called art by you. The art establishment doesn’t have the authority to declare what is and what isn’t art. It’s like with controlling parents. We give them power they would otherwise... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think art isn’t about being right all the time or producing only masterpieces (having 100% success rate in the conventional sense, never failing). Besides who should be the ultimate judge? It’s about attempting, trying new things, sometimes failing to please the audience (or ourselves),... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I’m a newcomer to the art scene. I appear rather late, like Henri Rousseau. But, what the heck! Like Rousseau, I believe I can do it, I believe I have what it takes, I want to do it, and will do it. Who can stop... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] We assume that the in order to be successful we need to have the sense of belonging. Not only that, we think that in order to belong we need to be understood, accepted and appreciated by others (fit in). We assumed that the planet (not... Continue reading

[ 5 min read ] My Author Journey, Monday, March 5, 2018 # 835 (countdown) - Woke up 4:40 am. Still struggling financially. January and February sold ca. 40 used items on a site similar to Craigslist, which was not bad. I have 90 more items there but it stalled... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] What this article turned out to be about is not what I intended it to be about. I began with an idea and then it became something else. Actually it happened twice. Must have happened to Pablo Picasso too since it was he who said... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Could I become immune to anything if I adopted the right mindset? Gary Vaynerchuk often says that no one can disappoint him, because he has zero expectations. But he is not entirely immune — he cares deeply about the health and well-being of his people (especially his... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Who defines what does it mean to be an adult? What is the basis of their right to define it? Who gave those who consider themselves entitled to define it the right to come up with certain definitions and why should everybody be obliged to... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] We all by default live in a cocoon. We feed what is in the cocoon. The life in that cocoon isn’t very complicated. You simply emulate others and listen to people who are older than you. That’s all. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Yesterday I wrote about and debunked the myth that an artist can be ahead of her time. I said that art critics particularly like this phrase and use it as their favorite explanation why they or their older or already dead colleagues (their predecessors), or... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] To say that an artist was ahead of his time is baloney. Nobody is ahead of his time. They inspire others, those who are their contemporaries and those who come after them. It’s a saying we use when we want to explain the society, but... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] I think the advice You have time, be patient! is both wise and ridiculous. It’s wise because we need to be patient in our lives. We shouldn’t assume that we will be able to figure it all out, figure ourselves out, in our late teenage... Continue reading
