By Peter O'Neill and Carmen Fuchs. Storyline by Suzan Schmittou
As child, I was fortunate in that I found myself amongst many of Natures treasures. Now I often look back at those wonderful childhood days. This brings me to my reasoning for along with Carmen and Suzann for putting together these illustrations and words. Many children of all ages and nationalities have never had the chance to enjoy many of this earth's baby animals and birds. There are those children that live in places where only tall buildings live. There are children whose childhood has been but a brief time. To all children this little book is for you. One day when you become adults, this little book will be yours to pass on to other little children as a gift of friendship. Peter O'Neill
What could be better than an adventure? Why a adventure with friends!

Snippets, Quotes and Soupcons
by Scarlet James

Someone, I say, will remember us in the future..
Sappho, 640 B.C.


If it were customary to send little girls to school and teach them the same subjects as are taught to boys they would learn just as fully and would understand the subtleties of all arts and sciences..
Christine de Pisan Cite des dames 1405

Flemish painting will appeal to women especially the very old and the very young and also to monks and nuns and to certain noblemen who have no sense of true harmony. In Flanders they paint with a view to external exactness ..stuffs and masonry, the green grass of fields and bridges which they call landscapes
Attributed to Michelangelo by Francisco da Hollanda, 1548


The history of all times and of today especially teaches that women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves..
Louise Otto-Peters, 1849


Woman was the governing principle, the directing reason and the commanding voice of the 18th century. She held the revolutions of the alliances and political systems, peace and war, the literature, the arts and the fashions of the eighteenth century as well as its destinies, in the folds of her gown.
Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, 1862
( 18th century France was regarded as the Age of Absolutism and the Age of Reason also called the `feminine age`. Salonniers were hosted by women like Madame Geoffrin, Madam de la Fayette and Madame de Stael who conducted evenings of conversation participated by philosophers, writers, artists, scientists and cultural leaders of the day )

ad libitum - Bruno Sanfilippo

Recorded and mixed at Onyx Studio, Barcelona, Spain, summer 2004

NOW SHIPPING 'AD LIBITUM' Released by ad21music

'In dreams, there's no imagined thing that's too absurd, too strange.
Frequently my music comes from that inexhaustible and shameless source.

I'm attracted by the idea of composing incorporating sounds of different cultures.

In Ad Libitum I use the timbric of the synthesizer trying to create atmospheres that take you inside yourself, … there, we all have an ocean of latent images. I try to free the functions of the subconscious mind and to perceive how thoughts arise in the conscience.'

All tracks by Bruno Sanfilippo:

Piano, Synths, Samplers, various acoustic instruments, nature sounds & computer sound processing

Max Corbacho: computer rhythm groove on Track 9

Latest Reviews: AD LIBITUM by Paul Rijkens, Dutch progressive rockmagazine iO Pages. I am very impressed by the CD Visualia of this Argentine musician who lives and works in Spain. Therefore I was very anxious to hear more of his work. Well, his new album Ad Libitum again has become an ambientalbum of great beauty. Hipnoide opens the album with calm but full and impressive pianosounds. This runs into Intention where hypnotic percussion supports sultry synthesizerparts. In comparison to Visualia Bruno on this CD uses some more acoustic (sounding) instruments like piano and guitars. In the fine and melodic Devoción this can be heard very well. This is almost filmmusic. There are also some tracks on the album that are built up from very beautiful atmospheric sounds, like Deceptive Beauty, Oppio and Lúdico that sounds a bit like the music of Steve Roach. This piece is accompanied with a nice rhythm. Oniria is a melancholic pianotrack with a lot of reverberation while Luminae Psicoactive and the titletrack could also serve as music for films. Again, this has become an impressive CD of this versatile musician.

This special edition of PixiPort is a unique opportunity to meet a very unique and well versed former UPI photo journalist, Renée Falcke and view many of her tremendous photographic images. The wealth of knowledge, experience and insight contained in this exclusive interview with Renée conducted by Mia for PixiPort is certainly a treat. Renee has known and worked with a real who's who of individuals including Charles de Gaulle, Pierre Cardin, Yves Montand, and novelist Margueritte Yourcenar while capturing unique and rare images of these people through the camera. Experience meeting Renée and enjoy the journey that both the interview and her wonderful photographic images takes us through.

PixiPort is very pleased to have the opportunity to bring this very special and unique photo journalist and her wonderful work to our readers. Please feel free to let Renée know how much you enjoyed meeting her and viewing her images. Thank you to Renée for availing herself to PixiPort for this interview, which has allowed us to gain some insight with Renee and experience her outstanding photography.
