Vino 2023

Vino 2023

I have new pencil!

Pentel Pro 0.3 – Great tool. Japanese know how to make precision perfect indeed.

And I got lovely gift from my friend Konrad. Sketchbook with gorgeous paper, ideal for my new pencil too. This sketchbook is from one of Cracow’s museums and has on the cover the painting by Józef Mehoffer. The patron of the street I grew up on. Whole quarter is named after painters. I Wander if that had some influence on me.

Anyway, here is the results of close meeting between Pentel pencil, Mehoffer’s sketchbook , and my hand:

Preparing for new “no fuel” order

Preparing for new “no fuel” order

Human world has been crazy place as long as we know. But we had those hopes, that we are going in the right direction after disastrous first part of 20th century. 2nd part wasn’t that great for eastern Europe neither, but it didn’t stop us, and at the end, we changed plenty. Changed for better. Why we forget this so easily? 

Last week I attended Fedessa Conference, Yearly Self-Storage meeting, which was absolutely great after whole lockdown life. 
Fedessa Conference

One of the topics was “listening”. I think we should try to learn much more about that.

Stop lecturing world. Start to listen.

Funny enough one of the exercises within this lecture, was to try communicating in such a way that one person is talking about your favourite hobby, when another is only nodding, and not allowed to say anything.

Try for yourself to see how Difficult it is.

I happened to be one who talks, and realised once more, that actually swimming and not taking is one of my favourites.

You know, I do Tai Chi a lot. I started in 1995, the year I also finished my architectural studies. 

Daily practice keeps me sane when the pressure is getting mad..meaning every second day 😉 

But my weekly swim gives me special kick. 

Just water, me, and deep cleansing breath.

Plus, smart watch to see how far I can go 😉

It is nice to see improvements every week.

Hopefully I will get so good I could cross English Chanel if needed 😉

Architectural Hand Drawings

Architectural Hand Drawings

I visited my old architectural office and had lovely meeting with architect Janina Dunal. We have worked together for almost a decade, and done so many cool projects. At the beginning I was still drawing by hand! Can you imagine?
I must be 100 years old 🤣🤣🤣
Look at that:
