I used to be a control freak and a perfectionist.
Creating is a vulnerable act. There is no right, there is no wrong, no better, and no worst. There is no failure, only learnings. I am perfectly imperfect. To create with my whole soul I must let go of control. I must accept the “half-done”, the “this is not completely okay”, and...

The Journey to the Heart
October 27 - 2 minutes
Every day I wake up and doubt. Shall I believe or shall I not? 
It does not matter if it‘s about fixing a lamp, designing a workshop, or drawing a talk. It happens also when planning for travel or deciding what needs to be done in the here & now. True is that first I have to believe it is possible and then I naturally, almost automatically, start scratching how it would look in my creative mind. The image follows belief like lighting in a thunderbolt storm. Then I can feel it.
