World Between Worlds was founded on January 13, 2021
But it has always existed.
The logo you see on this page, was created by me when I was about 11 years old.
The heart with anchor-like extensions is a combination of the letters S, L, and b, and it was the basis for my signature, which I developed then.
I have suspected I was an artist, although just like others I originally identified myself with my profession. I was a yoga teacher for over 15 years.
Or I defined myself by what I did most, which was writing. I have been writing under a pseudonym for a very long time.
Yoga teacher by day, writer by night.
Yet after I quit teaching yoga, I felt uneasy defining myself as a writer instead.
It isn’t until now, that I have realized my real art is, and in all likeliness always has been, immaterial. That I am much closer to a performer, than to a writer.
I am someone who method acts, a writer.
And that I am much closer to a dancer, than to a yoga teacher or even a yoga practitioner.
I am expressing myself through my body.
And the real art is even further behind that.
Or maybe not “the art”;
But the magic.
Although I will write many more pieces, and discover many things here with you on the blog, right now I believe the sequence is this:
First there is space.
And then in this space an energy field is created. A world.
And from there things can be created that can be taken to the real world, and other things stay in the world between worlds.
I want to give you examples of the moments when I have become aware this otherworldly place existed.
I have been aware of the world between worlds when:
-I went to a Bon Jovi concert in 2019, and the months, the weeks, the hours working towards that experience were actually CREATING the experience,
as much as Bon Jovi did, who are a builder of worlds and did their part of creating the experience.
-when I saw my lover, having kept him active in my vibration for weeks in a row, and then anticipating to see him, until the final date;
That was creating the experience.
As much as my lover created it who was a builder of worlds and who did his part in creating it.
-When I went to see Marina Abramovic in 2014 in London, and it took weeks to prepare the trip, and I was excited, and entire London seemed like magic;
I was creating that experience.
As much as Marina Abramovic did who is a builder of worlds, and who set up the exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery.
-When I met my best friend and we communicated as if we were two little boys, instead of two grownup women. To this day we have our own language, and we communicate in character.
You can transfer the art created in those worlds;
But you cannot convey the world itself. It can only be experienced, by those who have taken part in its creation.
Those who have found their own keys to the kingdom.
From Bon Jovi both as a teenager in 1988, as well as in 2019;
To Marina Abramovic in 2014;
To my best friend and all the men I have ever been in love with;
The reason I was intrigued by them was without exception because I wanted to be in their world between worlds.
They had created an energy field, a world, with their minds.
The essence of art is never in the art.
But in the world behind it.
I know the term world between worlds from Star Wars.
In anticipation to Star Wars IX (2019) I spent two years in fandom,
putting together the pieces of the puzzle.
How would the final episode of the Star Wars saga end?
Ultimately the term, or the location, of the world between worlds was never used in Star Wars 9.
But it had been a location in earlier scripts, there was talk that the set existed and that scenes had been shot there.
Scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor.
In the end, the world between worlds was no longer in the finished product.
Which makes sense.
Because it never is.
