aBout: RomBout Vercnocke. Teacher. Poet. Writer. Performer. Video artist. DJ & MC. Spoken Word. Shaman. WomBus Living. Spiritual. Romantic. Interested in web technology. Always wondering & wandering (in- & outside, up & down). Nederlands, English, Français. (In the picture above, on the right in the distance my previous WomBus, a VWLT31. We parted in 2010, and now I’m Wombus Living & Traveling in my VWCrafter35 -see header-, so still in the same family! 😉 )
This song and performance articulates best the way I try to live my life (in Dutch, with lyrics in Dutch, click for English subtitles):
en zeker ook het “onderweg” zijn, en gewiegd worden, being on the road, “roaming in the womb of being” … ❤

There is also this painting, kind of my Soul’s Imprint:
Painting (oil on canvas, 100x80cm) on my request by my father,
and a crafted dish, a present from my godfather at my birth .
The dish is a unique ceramic piece of art by Joost Maréchal (1911-1971)
– see: http://www.joostmarechal.be/ .
The two swans symbolising my zodiac sign (twins), above them Ygrassil, the Tree of Life.
On the painting some of the things I wanted my father to paint because they always had impressed me, he was kind enough to grant me my request:
Saint-Rumbold’s Cathedral (Mechelen, Belgium) after which I was named,
a moai from Eastern Island,
Saint Mark’s Lion holding the text “Pax Tibi Marce Evangelista Meus, symbol of the city of Venice,
and the two swans from the ceramic plate.
