25 years ago June 7, 1992 I arrived from Kiel, Northern Germany in San Francisco with one bag of belongings, not knowing a single soul, the English language and a quest to discover. I am so grateful because I am living now my dream as a artist and bring beauty into this world, and for the wonderful friends in my life! I took this picture in Tiburon and thought it is appropriate.

Passage to India by Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go,
And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.
O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail
