Humbled

I am
But a seed

What grows out of me
Wasn’t mine
To choose

Entire Universes
Flow through me
From the Source

No more belonging to me
Than a cup
Contains the river

Each time
I get to die a little bit
And surrender

Each time
I am humbled

By my own creation

100 days

I can’t really believe it, but I’ve posted on this blog for 100 days in a row already, without a single miss. This includes days when I was offline deep in Costa Rican jungle. Luckily WordPress.com has an option to schedule posts in advance. When I first signed up for this project, it felt almost […]

Empowerment means showing the way

Have you heard about Kosmos dla Dziewczynek? It’s a Polish magazine for girls aged 6-12yo, a beautiful, wise, and fascinating one. I cooperate with them for almost 2 years now, and it’s one of the things I am most proud of so far. I never thought I’d write for a magazine called Kosmos when I […]

You are what you create

“You must go to a lot of festivals, don’t you?” I got asked today again. Now that I work from a coworking office, this happens all the time. Because of my flashy multicolored clothes everyone thinks I’m a crazy old hippie who only likes to party. Now a part of me is indeed a crazy […]

Who would have thought I’d spend three entire afternoons drawing a bird? Well here I am. I met this one on a morning walk in Costa Rica. He wasn’t scared of me at all, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with his bright colors and magnificent tail. Here’s a tribute to that wonderful […]

A timeless rhapsody

I hear the trees singing
A timeless rhapsody

Are you ready
To leave your pain behind

Out in the vast plane of
The Unexamined
They swing gently to this
Eternal tune

There’s so much more
To being human
Than a roof over your head

Sure it all sparks joy

It’s high time to admit it. I am not a minimalist. I called myself a minimalist for many years. Living in a college dorm room and sharing a bedroom with two friends, I don’t think I had much choice. Neither did I at the time when I moved houses about once per year. It’s not […]

An audience of one

What if all you create was 100% feedback-proof? No words of praise, no matter how many people enjoyed what you did. No criticism, no matter how many believe that you’re wrong. No likes, no comments, no pop charts, no reviews, no follows or unfollows, no performance stats. No way to find out how other people […]

Reflections

I’m very lucky to have many of amazing women in my life. Growing up with 4 brothers, and then studying computer science on a technical university, I thought of myself as one of the guys and that I’d never be a part of a girls’ world. I’m very glad I had a chance to prove […]
