side note: sometimes you come across an album that speaks to the soul…

“I held onto a penance I didn’t deserve.”
-Half Moon Run ‘Unofferable’ from the album ‘Dark Eyes’

meanwhile a Southern journey continues…

I arrive in Puerto Escondido and immediately give thanks to Lady Guadalupe. A few artist musician gypsy folk, who were also in the van from Rio Grande, are kind enough to help me out with my bearings. I grab my bags from the back, say ‘gracias’ to the driver and walk into a town that is absolutely alive. The first thing that hits you here is the all pervading smell. I make my way up a busy street lined with businesses and street vendors. I find my way to an internet cafe and following a few minor technical difficulties make contact with friends who I will be staying with. It has been two days completely free of communication, no wifi, no phones, liberating on many levels. I make a call and am given instructions to head to Playa Zicatela, the Mexican Pipeline, and find a place called Los Tios. I leave the internet place, walk to the side of a busy street and flag down a ride. I find myself in a taxi, my head spinning from the whirlwind of a journey, while simultaneously taking in the new surroundings. I can’t help but feel I am having a Bill Murray moment as the taxi flies through town. In the back of my mind I wonder what life would be without these moments. Somehow in the midst of the chaos I am able to find peace, I have travelled here to find new rhythm, to submerge into Lady Pacifica and let go of some things that have been on my mind for far too long.

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
