Hey :-) just found your blog and it is inspiring, because you invite to expand the treasure chest of words :-) I also like the ZEN Symbol. Followed. Hope to read your own texts or lyrics here too! Best, Martin

Glad you find it inspiring. It's meant to be educational, so any "inspiration" is a bonus.

I checked out your blog, and it looks very interesting and professional. Also, very coincidentally, I made a post just 2 months ago featuring ... Iggy's "The Passenger." Here's the link ... https://steemit.com/music/@majes.tytyty/steemitcentral-lyrics-challenge-day-5-60-the-passenger-by-iggy-pop

And back in my youth, I read quite a bit of GB Shaw. Still today, I have the utmost respect for the man... maybe more than I had back then.

I've followed you, but I must say, I don't spend a lot of time perusing my Steemit feed, and focus on content creation.

Let's keep in touch ... every now and then. And your goal of financing a painting academy is noble.

Cheers!
