I bought a lottery ticket. It cost 1$, but I didn’t lose a penny – I win one dollar too. So today became my lucky day: I lost nothing. Was that not a dream?
Thus there are no wonder I didn’t stop buying the lottery tickets – I still have hope to improve my being: to change the sad reality of the living on a disability pension to a sunny today. The lottery is my only way to do that.

Molar King from art therapy class
It is good if everybody has a chance to talk, yet that only doubled the pain because nobody listened.
As we realize our problems as the misunderstandings, the conflict hurts doubly: the understanding of the meaninglessness of our passions colour up everything as the futility. That increased my despair and led to the hospital for people with the psychiatric disorders in Klaipeda. So I appeared in the art therapy class…Wow! Love was reigning there. The mental hospital was a school of love. I took my camera and became the participant of the class.
My eyes were captured by the Molar King … freedom from the attachments means not the wings, but the blindness to the talents God gave to us.
Many are afraid to greet people with the psychiatric disorders, and such mindset hurts the most. It hurts not only the rejected but the world because the prejudices rob people of their freedom to smile and put them into the slavery to the cunning standards of beauty.

Poets love all people. Unfortunately, fine art does not create love. On the contrary, creation changes love into the angry rhetoric of politicians: the publicly declared unity of people is practically broken down into fans of the artist and lovers of other styles. Instead of hugging, people start arguing with each other about whose tastes are better. Let us remember the saying “the way to hell is based on good wishes”. Our good intentions lead us to hell. Does Facebook escape this?

… If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself – Barbara De Angelis
The quote diagnosed the modern times well. What remained unsaid is our response to
“what does it mean to love oneself?”
Good food satisfies our body, but such joy lasts too short, yet discovery of oneself in other always enables us to experience Peace and Joy.
