New from Vesa Lumielle

Vesa just emailed: Thank you so much for your work and guidance. Immerse yourself in ancient magical Atlantis. The Black Pyramid, an interstellar ship, is also a temple, capable of travel across far distances and all dimensions, holding a mystery. Traveling deeper into the depths of the dark temple, an alchemist is setting up an experiment involving a micro-creature. He asks, “Will my name be the one written in the hearts of Atlanteans?” With nano-crystals circulating inside his bloodstream...

His ultimate goal is to counter the darkness in our world by reactivating, reconnecting and radiating ancient healing energies and grids of the Incas, Mayas...

Dachshund Photos – Christmas Updates

Hans is my third dachshund - my first American one. Snoepie, in the top photo, was Belgian, and Snoep, the first one, was French but bought in Casablanca. He lived an adventurous life, in Morocco, Belgium, Switzerland, and the U.S. My second dacushund - called a tekkel in Belgium - was very different from Snoep, Snoep being aristocratic, the son of a French champion. But Snoepie loved everyone, and unlike Snoep, who never made a sound, barked at times. The thing about Snoep was how photogenic he...

More Gonzo Fest 2019 Photos – at the Frazier

                As my plane was hours late, I missed the Frazier Museum tour the first time round. The next day Rory Feehan returned there with me. With an Irish flare he devoured every detail of the exhibit, as did I. Two of these photos were taken by him. I particularly like the one of us together. As I'd sat in the kitchen right beside that stool many years before, I was glad it was so well reconstructed. A wonderful expe...

Picasso at the Oud St. Jan Museum – Bruges

Sometime ago, I had the lucky opportunity to wander alone through the rooms of these drawings in Bruges. A small but significant, highly interesting exhibit of Picasso's  drawings. As always, there's a lot of wit, and what amazed me was the ability to say so much with so few strokes of the pen. It's here that a drawing of mine was on exhibit in December 2018. After leaving here, it's going to a yoga institute in Bruges for two months, on sale. After that, if not sold, it has another beautifu...
