Just like the previous work, this one was started in 2012. All I did in 2013 was add the watercolour. But I consider it a 2013 work because of the importance of the colouring.

The title, which was originally Sanctuaries III, is vaguely inspired by the title of a book by Fulcanelli 'Les Demeures Philosophales' . Silence is one of the most powerful chargers I know. Whenever you feel depleted, don't speak for a day and, if possible, limit the chit-chat in your mental ears. You'll feel how the energy-level rises again and your brain calmes down. Silence is also important in communication. Whenever we say something, we translate it into words, and once something is captured into words, it's difficult to get it unentangled again. Nothing more intimate than being together with something or someone in silence.
No words, just being.
