I am really, really animated about animations, exactly, about MAKING animations! I am so animated that I started attending an animation course. We are making stopmotion shorts, clay and puppet motion shorts and other cool stuff. 🙂
The Hungarian version of my book, Protector – Recovering Memories is published! Many of my friends were nagging me to translate this writing, so here it goes. The ebook version will come out a few weeks later. 🙂
Loads of things happen around me, week by week. I do my best to catch up with them, though it is really stressful. I got a new job, and a new flat to live in. As to my Protector Project, I submitted my manuscript’s Hungarian version for edition. I think it will be published in October. 🙂
This development makes me happy, however, I feel still very far from living the life I dream of… What would it be like? Making interviews, and meetups, building the turtle shelter and selling the Wingless angels script… At least I’d like to have some rest and good sleep…
I’ve spent fifteen days in a very special meditation retreat near a southern Taiwanese city, 10000 kilometres away from my home. We were doing karmakiller meditation for many hours each day, to help elevating ourselves, our loved ones, and the planet. I learned here that the island gave home to numerous saints and Buddhist (and non-Buddhist) masters in the past. We glimpsed shrines and temples wide around wherever we went. One could feel something sacred being present in the air… This is one of the most famous Buddhist places close to our retreat:
I saw a lot of gekkos and lizards on the walls and the trees, almost every day. They were so cute!
Our flight was pleasant with the Emirates and quite long, the whole journey took more than 25 hours: Budapest – Dubai, Dubai – Taipei, Taipei – Kaohsiung. We ordered vegan meals when booked the seats and we were happy to see they could cook for us – our food was labeled as strict vegetarian.
My fear from flying almost fully disappeared and on our way back I sat to the window. I could see huge part of Mesopotamia, the Euphrates and the Tigris rivers, and the lines of mountains as we progressed towards (and through) Asia Minor. Many of the places where I once lived lied under us… I am so grateful for the experience!
Hi, I feel it’s time for a few new posts! 😛
In the last years I was so lucky and found helpers for my Protector Project. Some of my helpers did proofreading, others created fancy visual models. I thought about giving them some lovely souvenir – and to create a tableau, a kind of hall of fame (I still need a few pics for that). These are the privileged t-shirts, I specially ordered and wrapped up these for them!
All of the shirts contain my blessing and the protective power of the symbol. 🙂
Using Python programming a developer colleague created a map animation. He added music to it, and it’s quite funny. 🙂
This is one of my favourite way to tackle painful memories or anyting traumatic. It’s quite simple, and I want to share my method in a workshop. This drawing was made with Tara Mantra (medium speed):
I also use it during one-to-one sessions, when necessary. I’m curious, how the workshop will go. 🙂
Hi there folks, I just came to type down the actual status info. So, looks like I found a new workplace (I’m through three job interviews). But most importantly, finally I decided to move professionally towards greener life, something I have in my mind since decades. Soon I start my study at Lund University about sustainable cities, for a start. And, I am now officially a volunteer at Jön Foundation (they are committed to eco-conscious and sustainable solutions with various activities), and I joined the Green Apes community as annamarf. Check them here, it’s quite a fun place:
Tied to you, unreachable
this is how I feel
you became blind again
you are deaf again
your eyes and ears are useless
they only take in the daily buzz
at the spot of topmost snobbery
you’re holding your head high
there are days when you think
you are above the rest
how far you are
how close you could be
how great we should be
why is it so hard to alert you
why am I compelled to try
over and over again
why do I have to know
why can’t you know it too??!
This is just an update, as I haven’t written anything since a while. As usual I am very busy again, my mind is literally buzzing. The German and Hungarian versions of the Recovering Memories is on the way. Also I started to translate the manuscript to French and Japanese, but it will take a looooooot of time to accomplish these versions. In the same time I organize my summer, I mean, my going to a few festivals. I may be holding a workshop or something of the like, it’s still uncertain. I restarted making drawings, and paintings, because I feel like creating something, plus I make some promo stuff items (T-shirts and other) that can be bought and show off. In the meantime I discovered how easy it is to make ice creams from banana and peanut butter, and on the margin I am looking for a new job. Honestly, I am not too excited rather tired. But I do my best to keep my spirits up. 🙂
That’s all for now.
