- 1 For you" the art what is it?
For me, art is a process. Art lives. It is my innermost part - soul, mind, feeling, emotions, visions - transformed as an expression that could be seen by the outer world in form of writing, music, dance, sports, horticulture whatever is done to make inner feelings visible for others . Not only thus but also the wish to share those expressions, perhaps to help people with them, give them encouragement or hope, convey hidden messages.
- 2 What is your favorite animal, and why?
I have no favorite animals because every living being is important. But I like some most. The cat for having its freedom and its own will, for being elegant, subtle and fast. The owl for its beauty as a nightly bird of prey and its wisdom. The raven for its cleverness and ability to learn. The husky dog just for being the domestic dog the most wolflike still and for the beauty of its skyblue eyes, its ability to run great distances in complete grace.
- 3 Prayer or sin?
Prayer or sin - difficult question as I am not a Catholic, so I do not believe in sins. I adopted Christianity after my belief in nature and Tibetan Buddhism - but I think that Lutheran branch I am into is far away from "sin". If you can replace prayer by medititation, so I would chose rather prayer.
- 4 The song you listen now?
"The Fallen one" by "Hammerfall"
- 5 The author who inspires you
There is no real author who inspires me. And different pieces reflect different authors I even do not know if I would not asked when being compared with.
One piece sounds like M.R.James, another one like Charles Dickens and a third one like Edgar Allen Poe. But I really do not know myself.
I like to read different authors like Tolkien, Yeats, Salvatore, Dostojevsky, Tolstoi.
- 6 Your favorite food?
All kind of venison
- 7 The word or phrase that you repeat often?
The most used word of mine is "soul"
- 8 Your favorite book? and why?
Difficult - but out off the coff I would say "The Silmarillion" from "J.R.R. Tolkien".
- 9 Your favorite style of writing?
I like to write non-fiction essays, prose pieces (short stories), six-word-stories, free verse poems and haikus.
- 10 Ipod or I pad or Mac? and why
None of the three.
- 11 Your favorite song?
"Creek Mary's Blood" by "Nightwish"
- 12 A word to say to a member of this group?
I am new to this group, so I do not know all the members up to now. But I would like to say something in general to everyone (if I am allowed to):
Make your dream come true. Everybody can do this. Just believe in yourself. Transform your mind into words and deeds. Always cheer up and never give up. There is a light for everyone to shine on the darkest path. You have to follow it with endurance and perseverence
