The Strix ~ Silence

I’m proud to be one of us!❤

The Strix

Happy to present you another collaboration we created and this time the topic was Zigyasa’s choice: very excited our art-sister could rejoin us. Sarah stepped in for John again, thanks dear! and last but definitely not least: the lovely Jyotee, our guest-artist at this collab.

In the Netherlands we have a quote “Spreken is zilver, zwijgen is goud”, translated it is: “Speaking is silver, silence is golden”. Yes, there are times you should think twice before you speak and the way you talk to someone, is also something to think about. However,

I strongly believe – and I am certain The Strix does too – your voices are worthy to be heard!

One of the best ways to speak up, to communicate, to connect is via art: Poetry, Music, Stories, Thoughts, Paints, Sketches, et cetera.

Enjoy the voices of The Strix through our art…

December, January, February. In the Netherlands, winter arrives and stay for at least these three months. Maybe you dreaded this season like I did. The temperature falls, the days get shorter, the nights longer and the sun seems to disappear, as if she wants to hide for this dark period, just like most of us wants … Continue reading WINTER SOLSTICE-THE STRIX

The Strix- Trust

  Something not bought, But hard-earned. Something not asked, But freely given.   It is a gift, Given when a stranger Becomes a friend. Free, but precious,   Please take care, Of this fragile thing. For it's impossible to fix, Once broken.   ~ AlpeJohn ~ from JUANDERING ARTIST   ******************************************************************* Ledge   on the ledge … Continue reading The Strix- Trust

The Strix- Fire

Did you know, if we humans hadn’t uncovered how to make a fire, we wouldn’t exist today? However, I strongly believe, if our ancestors didn’t possess a fire to even want to survive: a fire deep within to explore, to prosper, to follow their dreams…We wouldn’t be here either. Do you still have that fire … Continue reading The Strix- Fire


Starting where every haunted story starts. A dark room. I sat under the blanket, with my flash light on. The heat from the light made me sweat. Chills running down my spine, my eyes widened and stressed the eyelids to the level where they turned red. I had tears in my eyes. Something brushed through … Continue reading Supernatural

Fusion Beats Collabs with The Strix

Blue. Orange. Purple. Red. Yellow. It all went so well together, I thought. It really did look like the sunset. With one last stroke of my pencil, I smiled and got off the floor. I was careful not to step on the colored pencils that were scattered around where I had been working for the … Continue reading Fusion Beats Collabs with The Strix

The Strix- Metamorphosis

Biological speaking an example is the butterfly. Evolve out of the caterpillar into a butterfly happens automatically, it’s a natural process. The caterpillar trusts in the power of nature, trusts her own instinct, and becomes a wonderful creature. Mythological speaking an example is Zeus, God of Ancient Greece, who transformed himself into a bull to … Continue reading The Strix- Metamorphosis

The Strix: Hope

Here’s to those who live by in this world one day at a time doing what the world asks of them. Who turned a struggle into an addiction and desire into compulsion. Those who spend every night on their bed, mind drowned in thoughts, heart unwanting to beat. . . You hold onto your wait … Continue reading The Strix: Hope
