  • I might have told this before so many stories of mine here by now - I was born with just 7 months of gestation and immediately pi ut in an incubator for a couple of months and not even my mother was allowed to touch me...I have always thought that was the reason for my often feeling lost in the world and in life and a countless number of Panic Attacks. Now I know that also my retinas are dying and probably since decades and there IS a reaon why since I was young I have felt AS IF A VEIL IS PUTTING ITSELD IN BETWEEN ME AND THE WORLD.

    Now I have found 2 good reasons to feellost.

    And still: Life and people I have never looked for seem to find me sometimes.

    Beatriz Aurora, a Chilenean painter in San Cristóbal, who paints for the Zapatistas, has found me. We see each other just with big intervalls, but always our encounters are special. Actually she seems always finding me. A few months ago she asked me to send some of my work to the COMPARTE Arts Festival the Zapatistas organized this last July. I did. She took my posters and painted stories there. She says she also found a coster with a cat and a dog eating cake in my Kikimundo Galleria and as Subcomandante Marcos Galeano tells stories with a character calles Perrogato (Dogcat) she brought him one. He then wrote me a little letter on the back of that coaster and the letter and autograph - miraculously - found me last week, well, thanks to Beatriz Aurora....

    It says something like that the Zapatistas as I look through windows and outside imagine a better world....
