lots NU activity this year…. in order to fight the global stupidities…. please JOIN US!






an attempt to rise and find the questions about the state of things of the moment.

there is an extreme unbalance on local and global layers at the moment — from ideological, economical, cultural and political perspectives –  

and we need an equilibrium of some sorts very soon.

what can make it all HEAL?

can it HEAL ?

and for how long can it HEAL?

are there more questions to find?

if we can find the questions – we might find the answers. or is it enough with the questions in order to HEAL?

only the next generation can tell. – therefor this piece is dedicated to my 9 year old daughter Leah.
