Accept the artworks you produce

in all their imperfection and repetitiveness

for each detail bears a meaning in itself


Look at your hand painting the canvas

and focus on your innermost feeling

on the colors you feel like

on the ones your eyes would like to see spread

But don’t try to control where it all goes

for you’re a passenger on the river of inspiration

and you can’t direct its course

What you can do at most

is try to understand how it works


Living is like painting a watercolor

Contemplate how your mind and body and heart work and interact

but don’t try to repress one over the other

Let each express its needs in an open and loving way

And steer clear from external and internal control

which are just a lack of faith

in the fairness of life and God



Gaze at the deep blue skies of heaven

Happiness is now at hand reach

within this new freedom we’ve been gaining


Can you feel this peace of heart, this warmth

I’m feeling while writing these words


Can you sense the beauty and the freedom

in the colors I used and delicately blended


Have you noticed how reds and blues

are finally coming into balance

with greens and yellows



Are you still afraid of happiness and love

Are you still scared of the secrets your heart hides to your mind

Are you still unfaithful in life’s fairness

Are you still determined to explore and dwell in your shadows

Many questions I don’t seek an answer to

Many questions I should ask to myself before asking them to you
