we all deserve a new beginning.

I have been sitting in the same seat at the bus terminal for the last 2 hours watching human nature in a bus stop. A small child, maybe 2 or 3 years old, provides a lesson in perseverance. There is a metal fence that surrounds where the buses pull in to drop off and pick up passengers. There is one gate to get in and so far the small child has made three attempts to get the gate to open. The terminal is mostly quiet except for the intermittent sound of some kind of ridiculous prize vending machine, and when it does the small child makes an attmpt. On his fourth try he is successful, I can’t help but be happy for him and laugh out loud, the security guard catches it too, a priceless moment. Soon a bus pulls up, I look to see if its the right bus and I walk up and ask the attendant ‘Disculpe, Puerto Escondido señor? He looks at me asks for my ticket and nods his head, good enough for me, it’s 3:30 in the morning, my eyes are getting weary, sleep deprivation says hello. I get in the bus and find a seat, it’s a small load, I get set up and lean my seat back. i must be tired as I am impressed by it’s range, a spanish dubbed movie kicks in, I think it’s called ‘Noah’. I watch as much as I can until my lids succumb to gravities weight. In my dream I look out my window, a woman in what looks to be traditional dress of the region smiles and says hello. I ask her ‘have we met before’, she says ‘si’. In my mind I am unable to make the connection even though I have a feeling she speaks the truth. I look into her eyes and blink, the next moment it is dawn.

My eyes open to a a mystic morning. There is a mist blanketing the green landscape, the sky is periwinkle. I have no idea where I am and its a good feeling. Next stop Puerto, that is if I am on the right bus and haven’t missed my stop, I decide to stay up and take in the scenery, soon I am being hurtled into the color green.

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
