I met Ezéchiel on a breezy Sunday late afternoon on my way to meditation. I was feeling blue that day due to a let down. He was passing by me like a flash of light on his roller blades, a radiant smile on his face, entire person lit by the sun, I smiled when I saw this.
He made an U turn and came up to me. He told me he is a musician from south of France. When we met again the second day, I learned he is also a hip hop dancer. We talked for a few hours about art, I found out he is as conscientious as I am about art, about being authentic and vulnerable as an artist, as a human being. Our conversation continued in the following two weeks. no one has ever challenged me as much as he did in my understanding about human conditions, about art, our destiny, and what is true knowledge. It was a rich and intense exchange that reminds me to question deeper for answers without any preconceived ideas or intellect. Intellect, he often emphasized, is the culprit that prevents us from knowing the truth.
