BY BLAKE ART

"Art’s task is to Save the Soul of Mankind, and that anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because if the Artist, who are self-selected to be able to journey into the other... if the Artist cannot find the way, then the Way cannot be Found."  - Terence McKenna Adopting this Terence McKenna quote as his mantra and accidentally stumbling into what he calls "Thought Structure" through his art, blakeArt®, with all his might and good intent, attempts to do just that: find a way for All. We are all "One" in the "Same." (in English)

Thought Bubble: The first Birstein PKN

Two days later. The first PKN in Birstein is over. No, I was not nervous before the event — but somehow eased after it … There are different ways to look at PKN Birstein #1. In the front end I was not really enthusiastic that we had zero people for speaker's slots. I also felt disappointed about the rather small audience. Well, I knew we would not have a head start here on the countryside, where cultural events sometimes make me feel like one needed to create a new expression for not to misuse the word "culture". :-) We (Anke an I) tried to make up for the missing speakers and prepared five lectures ourselves — instead of the expected two that we wanted to add to the zillions of applications. We really invested in our first PK speeches. Especially Anke did a great job and I have the strong feeling that she personally grew that evening: She delivered wonderful speeches about natural gardening and memories of the last years renovating our historic farm. Thank's for all of you support and enthusiasm, Anke!   It was so good to see how much the audience liked what we delivered. People were quite amazed that something like this PKN did happen in our region. Even though I wished things were a little easier — we set up a nice event, the audience was as enthusiastic as the speakers and everyone was happy in the end. How come I was happy — not having external speakers and a small audience only? Well, we already started to plan our next PKN event and we have some speakers in the pipeline! People start to notice that this is serious and a good thing to support. I guess it will be a long way to achieve my goal to build a PK community here in our "Vogelsberg" region though. We made a start and sometimes this first step is the most important action in such a project. I am thankful that Astrid and Mark gave us the chance to use the PK organization and network bring something to Birstein that is outstanding. I never expected that they would accept our application consideruing that we live a a small community "out in the woods". After our first PKN I feel that both Astrid and Mark in Tokyo and we in Birstein did the right thing. Birstein for sure is not Tel Aviv — but we will make PKN something that is unique for our rural region. And one day we might be a blueprint for other areas where "culture" is mostly defined as something that happens in the big cities only. Cheers, Frank
