Who are We? Where Did We Come From? & Where are We Going?
Title of a Painting by Paul Gauguin
In this current period of history we are becoming aware of a quickening of increased earth changes occuring across the planet; these changes, compounded by man's environmental destruction, & our mis~management of even our own backyards has lead us to a crossroads. We are not who we think we are. We are not who others think we are, as nations, as corporate entities, as individuals. We are someone, or something in between. Though we have achieved wonders scientifically, & technologically, we have stifled or undone the most basic humanistic values, family systems, & bonding relationships; such qualities, more ancient peoples & societies took milleniums to develop. We have all but lost our oneness with nature, while devastating, enslaving, & polluting nature in every element: earth, air, fire, water; we have even trashed space: emptiness.
Indeed, who we are, we cannot continue to be. Who we were, we can never be again. So, the question is, "Who shall we become at this transformational time on the earth?" How shall we become more adaptable to changes coming upon us, and Why is it important to use our creative instincts and planning to transform ourselves at this time? Where are we at now? & where might we be,- in our life,- our career, -that place we call home, -in our relationships?
Being as Artist has challenged me with the many questions of Who, What, When Where, How & Why of life. Often the Artist's life demands that we be on the cutting edge, yet, neither inside nor outside, nor in the middle, but transiting inward, outward, ~ever attempting to find the ever changing balancing & tipping points.. We are of change & promote change through our creative works, affording us a very 'Be here now,' lifestyle. It is not a middle class lifestyle. However, in times of chaos, radical transformation, such skills come to the foreground.
Everyone has some Artist in them. Living a creative life is an art form. Facing natural & man-made challenges with imaginative & creative answers is a must; thus, creative thinking & feeling are greatly needed if each of us is to transform through the changes before us, now. Each day we can live in a fresh way, doing things slightly more efficiently, in a kindly manner; we can be more conservative or expressive, yet in an aestheticly pleasing way, with nobility, bravery & grace. We can serve each other, be successful, yet protect the planet, as well as those we love with just a bit more imagination, for the good of all. So, what are we about? The cosmic clock does not slow down for anyone. Natural catastrophes, political mayhem, war, human suffering, all of which need creative leadership & imaginative action; so, what are we about, today?

If this was the last day of your life what would you do with it? If what you did today made a difference when you are gone, what would you do? If you had a more perfect normal day, what would it be like?
By visualizing yourself in your own imaginative movie, see yourself doing these activities, and then start doing them more in your normal life. By the way, most people I have done this exercise with leave out their mate, marriage partner, family, friends and/or business associates...be sure to include them...but what that tells me is we need more time for ourselves, our dream, our quality time, our peace of mind. Visit here for more free jewels of wisdom, complimentary articles, and life enhancing words from the upcoming Books by Aelbert Aehegme: EXILE OF LOVE, and OUR GARDEN OF SECRETS.

If This Was Your Last Day on Earth, What Would You do With it? Who would you be with? Where would you go?
The Above video like all media is but a slice of my life. The wild appearance of my face revealing itself behind the canvas is the creative idea of Donnie MacGowan, the videographer/scientist I hold in high esteem.
Having become a member of Cambridge Who's Who is fascinating, yet challenging. I will be reaching out more from my reclusive, ideal life in Hawaii, to share more Aloha....to me that means having to leave this exquisite place, get on and off planes, lecture, sign prints, autograph publications, offer controversial lectures on the Ancient Little People (Menehunes), Lost Civilizations (Now Found!) and other topics that draw fire from critics, and wonder from those to whom the newly discovered facts of the ancients proves that the institutionalized, official views of the ancients is way too often, just plain erroneous.
However, being an independent artist, scholar and writer, I have no position to lose with any institution of higher anything, therefore, I am free from losing any official job by exposing new scientific and technological proof of the intelligence, language skills, navigation abilities, architectural mysteries, migration misconceptions, etcetera.
After a lifetimes of research, field studies, and creativity, I am now integrating these topics for the general good of all creatures, large & small, as well as for my own curiosity. Thank you for enduring this ramble.
Current Projects include creative writing about endangered creatures in Hawaii, along with paintings of the creatures. Shirts and hats and all those fun functional, wearable items. The Honu,(Sea Turtle), The Hawaiian Monk Seal, and Whales will be some of the first Brand Artwork, with accompanying creative writings about each one. Hawaiian Sayings and Values will also be on each item; my purpose is to bring attention to endangered creatures in Hawaii, share Hawaiian Values, and help the creatures and ourselves survive the earth changes coming upon us as one grand earth family, or 'Ohana' in Hawaiian.
Further, I am preparing Turtle Dance, from which I read in the Above video, the printing of new collections, including Poems of Love & Exile, and Our garden of Secrets. Special publications on ancient cultures will also be forthcoming.
My public exhibitions continue...including artist on location at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club, The Big Island of Hawaii. I am accepting commissions for murals, wall art, sculptures and portraiture anywhere in the U.S. at this time. Once I have enough commissions art events, lectures and so on booked, my "Hope Art Tour: Staycation" begins.
At present I am helping guide the rebuilding of Hawaii Cultural Center, where I keep my studio.
Should one be interested in commissioning me for art projects, feel free to reach me at email@example.com
