March 25, 2017

Towards Burning Man: As I use a conventional toilet for the last time before entering BM, I realize just how nice it is to not have to stand in line for a spot in a Porta Potty. First reflections: All my life I’ve been looking to choose the right card, experience, job or person while […]

Free Diving with Dolphins 2016

March 25, 2017

The Creativity Workshop with two curvaceous figure-drawing models and 60 executives from a multi-national conglomerate had just come to a close when the message hit my phone.
