Focusing on what is

For too long I’ve focused on what isn’t

instead of focusing on what is

For too long I’ve spoken and written about shadows

instead of living in love


Shadows are unreal and they are ever shifting

there is no hard comprehension, no truth, to be gained from exploring them

The only way to stop being tempted to fall into them, to live through them

is to do learn doing the right things at all time

that is something that becomes intuitive when I am living through love

it happened to me in the past, to feel this endless creativity and boundless compassion

but then I forgot about it, and slipped back in old patterns that are still clinging to my skin


There are two interrelated faces that love can take in my heart

my correspondence with you and my writing novels

two things that have eluded me for long

two things that would make my shadows dissolve as they reappear

Dear all, I will share with you many of my poems, short stories, drawings and paintings telling of my journey of self-discovery and my reflections about life, love, art, spirituality, sexuality, kundalini rise, and twin flames. You will also come across many paintings by Chantal Peguiron that are intimately related to my artwork. They all fall within the realm of Hazen.

  1. Yes indeed, not fighting the dark but reinforce the light. If you light a strong enough lamp in the dark, the dark will disappear.
    Thanks for reminding me of that. Not fighting the shadows all the time but instead living, acting love-based.
