It is doubtful whether Graphis scripta will be the first which a person thirsting for knowledge will encounter in a forest. Around us we have so many more noticeable, larger interesting representatives of the lichen world! Nonetheless, when we learn more about them, we discover that most minute and discrete miracles. On the bark of a hazelnut or other tree the scripts that the Graphis scripta creates is one of these miracles – if only we knew how to read what he writes! With his small, dark hierogliphs, he writes letters to us on the barks of trees and tell us that the damp woods around him are a highly valuable biotope and, possibly we will see rare species here, so – be careful! Surely there are other things that graphis scripta wants to tell us as well – one just needs to open one’s mind to understand.

I tell you! If all events were like this one, I'd have to fire most of my staff! After more than 5,000 people spent hours in the sand dunes - not one piece of garbage left behind! Almost no disruption of the surroundings!
Thank you for creating such an amazing, wondrously beautiful, true and gratifying art! May you have enough creativity for many more years
The Oss year's concert is of special significance to me personally as after the Ogre concert, under the dome of stars - I asked my then-girlfriend to be my wife!
Once I was stopped in a shopping mall by a couple. They complained that under the influence of our event, their son was asking for a microscope - not latest toy - for Christmas.
Thanks to all musicians and people who can create something with such synchronicity of the soul, science, meditation and other emotions!
