Writing and Poetry

I was cleaning out closets the other day. And what do I find? Writings from my childhood and youth. Poems and short stories written between 1988 and 1992... What a self-reading effect! This is one of my poems. ...I must say, nothing has changed... I was sad and angry by then! Here's a little foretaste [...]

Music : Life’s code (The Mother Code)

Music is the beat being with us since birth. Is the frequency within us. Mother Earth gave us this code to express ourselves, to let our emotions flow. Where words don't reach, it is a sound, or a color, that arrives. Which then are the same thing. Music is a brushstroke of emotion [...]

The freedom’s cage

It is our responsibility, if we are slaves! ACT ONE: Soul’s slavery If we don't set our soul free, we can't alter a system. "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings." (W. Shakespeare – Julius Caesar) Ever since I was a little girl, I've been watching and listening... very much. Let's just say that, being unsociable [...]

My silent war... Third act

TALENT SHOWS AND PLASTIC ARTISTS: DREAMS' BUTCHERY AND MUSIC IMPLOSION. Ok, I agree, debates against talent shows got boring, unoriginal and out of date. Everybody knows that these are painstakingly planned TV shows, giving no added value, etc. etc. But then, why do these shows still exist? They give false hopes of becoming artists [...]

Online shows? The music during Coronavirus

Personally I never liked them. Missing the contact , the vibration…. the carnality of the music. It's being misused during these days. People talking to a camera, alone in the room with their guitar and a microphone... But who cares? It saddens me. In such a situation, I find it even unnatural [...]

Nature destroys to recreate

An organism on the edge of life. He suddenly managed to change our lives. It destroyed a saturated system, a world based on veneers that was sluggishly regressing. Perhaps it gave us a chance to quiet, for a pause. But he doesn't know that, he just follows Nature’s matters. Nature simply flows. So do we, even [...]

Hymne for this moment

This is the time to rediscover the self, the real value of some words, of a kiss, of a hug. If beauty lies in rareness, this is the right time to appreciate it. To get that veneer of appearance off. That boundless Ego, masking so fragile beings. That having to please at any cost. That emotional "satisfaction" [...]

Silversnake Michelle Coronavirus

Coronavirus

In this surreal historic moment and in the confusion of information, often conflicting, about this new form of coronavirus, many ideas, thoughts, emotions, sensations and images have crossed my mind. A feeling of fear, but not the fear of death, something more global and deep. A fear "of kind", "of human race" [...]

The immortality of Art

When does Art become immortal? When is it beautiful? And how would you define the Beauty? I would personally say that it is something attractive, giving me pleasure, standing out from the rest, something fearless. But not always immortal art, it is also aesthetically beautiful. Let's take, for instance, Cindy Sherman's works. Some people would be shocked and wouldn't [...]

My silent war continues…

SECOND ACT REALITY SHOWS: FALSE REALITIES (OR TRUE FALSEHOODS) OF THE OTHERS. This way of presenting celebrities and not, lending themselves to this real fiction, makes it clear the lack of ideas and content useful to really invent something new. A sort of writer's block. But when an artist has no inspiration, he should [...]
