Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
who are we? Why are we here? What comes after life?
I always asked myself these questions.
If I found an answer? Yes. I found my answer.
And the answer turned out to be pretty different than I thought!
I discovered that this world is much bigger than I thought.
I wanted to share my thoughts and my feelings, so I created this blog, called “Lingua Animarum“. Latin for “language of the souls“. It is our soul that is the key to open this world.
To understand it. To live in it. Music, literature and visual arts were always guiding me.
They led me to where I am now. Therefore I would like to share my thoughts and encourage to feel and think new.
