recent doings in the world of cha / creation of universes in tiny scale

everything i do serves the purpose to reflect this planet/ share consciousness
while simultaneously conjuring up visions of an alternate reality
i create to enter new worlds and make them accessible to others
it should be meaningful, complex, never dull or overtly simple
everything is interconnected, it's always there - on my mind

i feel an immense desire to keep alive the traditions that have been around for centuries
want to keep up working with my hands
while also using modern day technology to inform the world of my doings
and to be able to create new things as well
this planet is so rich and full of possibilities
you can do everything you might be dreaming of

i feel like appreciating other people's work
the work that keeps the whole system going
and also admire that, which pushes it all forwards
i want to learn about artists constantly
set my own creative practice into context
the extensive, interdisciplinary way of working
that i feel has stayed with me for some time now

creating art is my biggest privilege and deepest desire
something so sacred and rooted in me
connecting humans with this world
it is all ingrained into the very fabric of our being
the atoms of us, stardust and all, inscriptions of fine lines
there are words and the most evident, yet subtle feelings
developing an understanding for the nuanced changes in environments
it seems, we all stay open, constantly
open for all that is ever evolving
for what is going on
never shielding our eyes from the spot of light
that we have chosen to illuminate our understanding

i write, therefore i am
i create and do, live and feel
thus i am a breathing organism
one of an entire galaxy of beings
a tiny entity
and when all comes together
something so divinely pristine and whole is created
that everything makes sense
