Best Places is the tittle of Yareah magazine next issue (34) March 2013. Then, during February we are publishing different opinions, poems, paintings, photos… about the best place for our authors and artists.
Today, we have the sincere opinion of a great Abstract artist from Sweden. Echi Aaberg has traveled exhaustively and has known different cultures. What does she think about our topic? Listen to her.
Still haven´t found what I´m looking for – lyrics I love by Echi Aaberg.
And the essence in those words are with me. Have moved around in my country, worked in very different companies, met a lot of special people. But inside I wanted to do something else, something creative. So I took three years in artschool, a wonderful time. To write is also something I do for my eyes only, so far. Make photos for local newspapers I have done. Besides working in my study I have to earn more money and for that reason I am working as a tourmanager on bustrips to Europe. Love to visit new places, discover new things and meet new peoples. Berlin and Barcelona are my favourites – these cities have something for everybody. Cities I easily could live in – but I still have not found what I am looking for. Maybe the searching itself is my way and not the goal. In the end I may say – I did it my way!
