This is not a blog, only an electric island referencing various places in the real world of spirit and soul and body. I'm not against digital streams of media, but would like to encourage all of you to keep your handwriting Beautiful, Good and Truthful. Some of these texts have been changed along the way, many others were deleted. There is also an acoustic / ascetic "band" called Thirst, playing on a broken-hearted flagship (half-broken Landola Maestro) named after St. Anne.

This picture was taken in September 2007 on Paros, the village of Naousa. We were having a good time, and I would lose my heart for Greece. All the others were drinking cold frappe despite my warnings (as they were not professional coffee drinkers like me). But now I have chosen this photo to represent Xenia Oecumenica, hospitality concerning the whole world. The way I see it, ecumenia is not only about dialogue and co-operation within the divided Christian churches. For me it has to do with the whole world, as the word itself actually stands for. Between all religions and cultures, that is. I am aware that it's no good when trying to blend everything. This is not what Xenia Oecumenica means for me. Neither is it a synonym for "perennial philosophy". There is the same spirit that made the old ecumenia. But this one is wider and more...... Well, maybe you know what I am referring to. At least I hope so.
