My Bio
Since my avatar reflects me, this is my description:

- On the left: Me, well half of me, since the "body" is really not the only what we are made of.
- Top-center-left (black): A CD cover art from one of my favorite artists, Paco de Lucia. The Flamenco guitar is one of the few music arts that EXUDATES passion, a feeling that drives me on things that I like or people I love. I love playing guitar, makes me feel away when I need to.
- Top-center-right (blue): A high view of the beautiful Maui shores. I love travelling, actually I live for travelling. Some years ago was clear to me that if I was going to make 80 or 90 spins around the sun I had to know Earth as much as I can.
- Top-right (yellow): Halakeala peak sunrise. For some reason I feel every day is a day less, not a day more, so I really thank the whatever luck or god or laws that make me be here alive with all the people and opportunities I have, against all probabilistic chances. In short: I just welcome each day. (Carpe Diem)
-Center-right (red): A top view of the Children museum. I think imagination and creativity is part of the energy that keeps us young and close to our human essence. I try to think always out of the box.
-Bottom-right (green): Shanghai jasmine at sunset. I have a great appreciation and respect for nature. It's inspiring in all senses. Is the place we came from and the place we are going to. We should never loose the sense of overwhelm from simple things.
- Center-left (white): River rafting, I do it every year. The adrenaline, the rush and the survival instinct, makes me feel alive, happy and very human.

This month I was reminded that I joined DeviantArt 15 years ago. I was attracted firstly by its desktop customization templates for Linux that the amazing community shared back in the day. I then kept a photography gallery as a valve for my photography addiction. Then, maybe because of its mobile focus and its community explosion I joined Instagram where I spent almost 8 years regularly uploading my photographic work. I must say that in that period (circa 2008-2018) DeviantArt was still active but the platform was still hanging on its gorgeous past which, by the increasing standards and experiences of the newer platforms, it just didn't invited me to add more content or renew my premium subscription. Today DeviantArt is different. In the last two years I was excited to see a more dynamic and modern DeviantArt with more focus on the community, more monetization paths for artists, and not only providing a great digital gallery. With the recent Subscriptions, NFT fraud alerts, and

During the last months I have experienced a very strong focus on art. I would not say this is a transformation but an evolution triggered by some lectures (daily lectures?) If I was considered once a sensible person I can say I am now even more lucid on the reverse of things. Art, on definition, is itself arguable but I do not have a better way to explain the essence of this shift, a turning point that goes along with my state of happiness. Can I say that this state is making me more happy than before? I would say no. From a very long time now I have been very well settled in a state of happiness that allows me to feel complete, serene and fu

It took me almost 5 years to go this far and compared to other deviants, I'm definitely unpopular :D, however my sole reward is to ignite the human spark, no matter how small.
