Inktober 2016 has begun

Yesterday I finished a small mandala.  A ruler, a compass, a pencil and an eraser were used in addition to the Staedtler pigment liner  .3 inkpen and some watercolour.

Today I did a 15 minute sketch of something that caught my eye:

Another Little Red Hen Story

I don’t know why but I have had croissant on the brain for a couple of weeks now.

The best pastry shop near our yoga class is closed for vacation.

A bakery in a nearby town that makes excellent croissants was sold out.

The ones we bought at a bakery in a shopping center were not good (my opinion and personal taste).

So the only thing left to do was make some myself.

I used the recipe from “Le Larousse du Pain” by Eric Kayser.

We think they turned out good albeit rather small.  But one can eat two, two can eat five,…







Love, Anarkhia and Penitence

“… “ I turned my anarchy into anarkhia, a constructive insurgence,” you say, brother Angel, and it is absolutely true that the first head to be brought down is one’s self, which is the source of pride, that is to say, of the error which consists in believing oneself to be superior to others and thus killing Love.

Pride is ice, the man unfurled over himself freezes: nothing passes from him to the other.  Love is the Fire, the Wind of the thaw.  There cannot be anarkhia without Love and there is the difficulty, I know.  Anarchists believed they were serving anarchy by killing.  Alas, they were only in anger and anger, like pride, imprisons the being under the glacier of a long cold pressure.  Reading works about anarchy, I did not find any allusion to what seems to me to be essential for developing a happy powerful anarchy, Love.  One must admit that most anarchists are not believers, but still, I found that bizarre.

We must live with the hope that man be cured from his illness of submission.  Why does man weaken himself thinking he absolutely needs rulers, laws, coercive protectors?  It is an illness, one of those deep illnesses become congenital, inherited by the poor choice made by Adam (Revelation of Arès 2/1-5).  We must give humanity the hope of being cured from this evil through which politics and religion live.  Anarkhia, when it will begin to be put into practice in small human unities like it is practiced in our missions, will be a celebration following millenniums of being deprived of liberty and independence.  They say that we only use 10% of our brain, but has anyone conceived the notion that the inactive 90% is the result of constraint of the mind, thought?

This thought, these capacities finally liberated, yes, it is penitence that will give it to us.”

Evening Bands of Colour


I just liked these bands of colour, in the evening, after stormy weather.
