About Me --> the most astounding fact: that I was converting from an introvert person to an extrovert within merely months following my second divorce (1985) ...

Another change was with my attitude towards people or live beings like pets. My attention was drawn to the fact, that common talk almost inavoidably utilized some "possessive pronoun" to reference persons (and pets).
My decision was to avoid that practice -- which incurs not only the claim of possession (in times we had long abandoned slavery!) but also deprives the referenced person off her/his name. That can well be considered as a form of torture - to summon a person by a number instead of its name (as is commonplace in certain prisons -- brought to an extreme in german KZs where this number had been tattooed to the forearm of the detainee).
Much later, reading Khalil Gibrans verses "On Children" did hit the same notch.

And again much later, factually a mere decade ago from now, I read the (talmud?/vedic?) verses:
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
-- and again, the same score was hit --

So, I may say that I'm married in third instance
(all GOOD things are 3) - to Maria and we are parents to Moritz, who was born 1990.
With us live(d) two cats -- Karo and Maxi who , in their young age of some eight weeks choose me, resp. Moritz as friends. That was back in 1998. Now, March 2013) Maxi had passed away -

gefilter=3&ustart=1
for detail
and, just some six months later the supercat Karo died too ... Super, because she actively tried to befriend dogs (mosty successful). She could knock the door to be let in, and finally she did survive HCM (a heart disease) with daily medication for three and a half years, where the general l.e. is but 6..9 months from diagnosis ...

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy your friends are mine as well

I feel my roots ( "at home" ) wherever friends live ...
What Gives Me Hope the abundance of information and chances for contact by means of the iNet
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by change from monetary- to a resource-based system

Money IS THE means of corruption.
If little is paid for lots of effort, we call it "wage" or compensation -
if it's the other way round, we call it "bribe"

interest money is illusion - it never existed
What/who changed my life and why the second divorce - and, in the process reading a book on upbringing children by Hubert v. Schoenebeck and much of the referenced literature ...

    excerpt of a message-exchange...
    →statement: »Sometimes, in order to have peace of a just society (with no nationalistic hatred which [head-of-state] inflamed), one needs to stop it in the bud and use millitary force.«
    → response: »I'm wondering about your point, that war could be a solution to whatsoever. – can't agree to that – not even as a "last resort", because,
    War is the condition, when people shoot at one another, who don't know each other, aren't even sad on another; all by command of other people, who know each other, carry greed upon another but would never shoot.
    – and it's one of the biggest polluters of nature!
    – and – being against war, is one of my reasons to be here at care2 –
