There are these kind of long lonely nights in hotel rooms during business travelling. New fancy furniture everywhere. The carpet is super clean but dry, the white blankets are shiny but you can feel the heatness by they got washed. The temperature is always warm inside the room and bright is the light but if you close the door to society and the dark overcomes the day there is this feeling. A feeling which overcomes your whole body, it reaches even to your soul. Emptyness, lonelyness, shades everywhere and frequently silence. Don't get me wrong, I like to be alone, but I am lucky to come home again.

FREIHEITby Mathias Erich 2016
There is a window to heaven. Blue is the heaven, blue is the ocean. So whats the difference? It ain't the color, it ain't the spirit. Live is not Black or White, it is grey in a million shades and not one of them is true. So, what is true? Is there one reality? Is there one truth? We are 7 billion people on this planet and 7 billions Realities. The truth is not solid at all. The truth is relative and flexible. So its not about the truth, its about tolerance!

THE DARK VALLEY
There is a place in Austria called Pitztal. A valley with just one street and a dead end infront of a great mountain wall. Behind the great mountain wall just 10 kilometers away is italy. But it is out of reach with the car. You would have to take a 350 km ride to reach italy with a car or you walk.

Life is nor black nor white. It is not that simple. There is no thing such "the truth". Every reality belongs to its context.

A black portrait of Martha V. Millan. She is a spiritual teacher and a being of light. As we all are, indeed, beings of light. It's been a pleasure to portrait you.

There is always a golden ring on the hand which lightens a cigar. But not from the wedding night. It's from the glamour which comes with the thick deep filterless smoke. Or do you want to tell me you don't feel it when you smoke one? Here we go, now you got it. Smoke it !

A SOUND BREATHING ROOF
At 05:30 in the morning the buildings on the top are breathing sounds. The sun has just risen but some people are already on their feet. And even when you are not in their company you can hear them from above. From every whole in the roof there are sounds coming out of it. It is like a concert. A concert of voyeurism.

It is a hot summer day in Austria and the temperature reaches almost 40 Degrees celcius. Obviously, we are not in the mountains. This is the unknown part of the alp country, the desert. And it is flat, hot and dry. Only the sound of the big farming machines are in the air, pumping tons of water onto the fields. The humas are resting on the flat shores of the here so called puddles (lakes). During the day there was absolutely no cloud in the sky but suddenly there are appearing hundreds of them before the night turns. Then, the sun is going down and a powerful thunderstorm overcomes this land. Heavy rain, world-ending lightnings and a storm like a hurricane acting in the shelter of the night. But before the sun is rising again, the most beautiful day awakes back from dead. And the newsreporter in the national morning radioshow announces record temperatures of 42 degree today.
THIS IS WHERE I GREW UP. THIS IS WHERE I BELONG. THIS IS MY NATURE.
"Paddles" are flat lakes which occur a lot in this part of Austria. The biggest of them is the largest lake in that country, the so called "Neusiedlersee" which is 320 km² in size but has only a mean depth of 1.0 meter.

Love tastes like a melon. Or Nutella : ) In this world of duality we all need two of a kind to be complete. The day and the night, the sun and the moon, the strong and the weak. But live is not that simple. Live is in between. Live is pure Love! So forget everything else and LOVE !!!!
