dreaming with eyes wide open: an inspired world with the contemporary work of artist marcel van luit

A successful, transcendent, and in-demand career in fine art is most often the result of meticulous studies, innumerable studio hours, popular exhibitions, lucrative commissions, and—perhaps—even a little bit of kismet. It is not the side-effect of a debilitating and rare nerve disorder that causes paralysis and requires intense physical therapy—that is, not unless your name is Marcel van Luit. Following a teaching and social work career, Netherlands-born van Luit was diagnosed with Guillan-Barré syndrome. After experiencing complete paralysis, van Luit was transferred to a rehabilitation facility where he took up photography and editing as a form of physiotherapy and mental escapism. His first subject, his baby son, offered him the perfect inspiration to create pieces that captured the spirit of adventure and highlighted the beauty of tonal juxtaposition. “When we use our…

embracing the new normal opening our hearts to internal change and connected consciousness

My clients, colleagues, friends, and family members seem to be trying—with great courage—to achieve a sense of normalcy with Zoom meeting after Zoom meeting, work reports, homework, and tightly manufactured schedules. I own that I have fallen into the trap of taking on more writing with the assumption that now, without work travel, I have more time to get things done. WHOA—pause and take a breath! As someone who has experienced crises in both my work and personal life, and who has listened in support to others in crisis, it is a slippery slope to think that just buckling down and being productive will be your answer until things get back to normal. Are you one of the millions around the world, from the C-suite executives to elementary school teachers, asking…
