I just received a contribution by Luke Nysen and am deeply grateful and thankful to him.

Update:

I have received three new contributions! My deep thanks and gratitude go to an anonymous contributor, to Justin Valis and to Kathy Schramm.

It is amazing and beautiful to see that people support my art, it gives me all the more strength and inspiration to make it great and valuable.

Off to write now.

Domaine

I am trying to put everything on hold – everything meaning my activism (which is not really possible, as I am working on three projects already…), my filmmaking, my screenwriting and my acting – so I can write Domaine, the novel I began back in 2010. I am very inspired by Emily Brontë again.

I am planing to take a trip across England very soon, if money allows it, since my novel takes places in England and Switzerland (that I already know quite well, having cycled along the lake Leman several times on beautiful hot Summers).

Looking at the sky

As I lay in the back yard listening to a lecture on Camus, I look at the thin clouds on the bright shiny blue L.A. sky and I see two colors on the clouds, pink and green… First I think it is a rainbow, but there is no rain… Then I think it is an optical illusion and I look at other parts of the sky and clouds, but I don’t see the colors there… So I go back to the colors and they’re still there. And I begin to think of the Universe and how we are all connected, and I think of my heartbreaks I’m dealing with now and it makes me think of my new screenplay I am working on right now, “We are Stardust” and I finally come up with how my story should be developed and right at that moment, the color pink and green go away and there is only blue and white…

Vegephobia is Speciesism

After giving two lectures on vegephobia I realized that although some people react to the introduction of this word as if it had revealed them what that always tried to express but didn’t know how and were truly thankful for it, a small but significant amount of people seems to not understand the concept and why would we make such a fuss about something they find so unimportant that they’d rather hide it… For them, but especially for the animals exploited and killed, I wrote an article – soon to be published – explaining how hiding vegephobia and denying it worsens the problem.

I will prepare a new lecture on vegephobia, based on this article and I hope it will clear any doubts…

Enantiodromia

I am working on my new screenplay, Noc (The Night) and am reading some Jung and some Joseph Campbell.

“the more consciousness gains in clarity, the more monarchic becomes its content…the king constantly needs the renewal that begins with a descent into his own darkness”.

C. G. Jung, Mysterium Coniunctionis (London 1963) p. 334

The Artist and Pandemos

The Artist is a black and white silent film directed by Michel Hazanavicius . While in Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to attend to a special screening of this movie at The Egyptian. It is a wonderful, beautiful, moving, entertaining film I recommend to anyone, especially to movie aficionados. I adored it.

I first heard of The Artist when it was in the Cannes Festival competition in May of last year, while I was working on my own black and white (well, sepia…) silent film… Mine is short and is more a myth than a real life story and I’ve been trying to do it since 2008 and wrote the story in 2004, but I guess everyone now will think I was inspired by The Artist

I hope The Artist gets the Oscar for Best Film.
