“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

~ C.S. Lewis

I would just add: GO, create this another world.
Who else if not you.

Why it is good to live in a bubble

It’s hard to keep being positive, inspired and full of energy. Especially in our age of information, when every single moment of our life is full of incoming bits from e-mails, news, messages, conversations etc.

Informational noise is one thing which I truly don’t like.
And what I try to do is to filter it.
But HOW to filter it?

You’ve probably seen this picture before. Same as many other thousands of pictures with nice inspiring or just wise words and quotes, social media made them easy to share and… almost useless.

For a long time I’ve been collecting pictures. It became a habit: once I see a picture I like, I immediately download it and store in my personal “library”. A special place in my “Library of meaningful beauty” is given to pictures with words. And I truly admire those people who manage to put together beautiful and meaningful, thus to create something new.

Once upon a time in Myself

When I was a teenager I didn’t like my city and especially the area I used to live in. And the most natural way of coping with unpleasant reality became creation of my own sub-reality, my own story.

I needed that environment not just to surround myself with beauty I was missing, but also to find meaning. I wanted to ask and answer big questions, I needed those people who would be interested in the same level of conversations, people whom I could not find in the outside world.

I didn’t find them – I created them. The main heroes of “my Story” appeared as characters of inner dialogues and all the mythical worlds got created as beautiful environment for meaningful conversations.
But why a fantasy story?
