I was younger than 10 years of age when I discovered Ernest Hemingway. His literature and expatriate life whisked me away to a vision.. A vision I would always keep in my mind and heart. I yearned for a group of Lost Generation’ers – I knew I would need to connect with other progressive thinkers, philosophers, artists, poets, writers, activists.. creatives from all walks of life to discuss the conditions of our societies and to let our ideas flow freely, in order to inspire one another, spark fire in one another, so that we could carry out and implement our magic into the world. Just as the world was starving then, from deprivation of freedom in every aspect, we are starving once again. And I can hear Hemingway echoing in the paintings I see, the poetry I read, the music I hear, the emotions I feel. It’s time for us to come together once again. We are the creators – we visualize, innovate and manifest our ideas. We have the natural gift to express in the physical world what we feel within; to bring dreams to life. That is the point of art, any form of art. And it’s time for us to come together again – commune together – to push humanity forward.
