Wild Fact About Me nothing wild about me, altogether caged by society and kept under control. incidentally, the ogopogo lives in Lake Okanogan, which supposedly is my namesake not the Walt kelly's famous pogo. I prefer Walt Kelly, though.
My Philosophy have never had time to formualte it and in the few times I tried, I nearly went as crazy as Satre. Thinking too much is definitely not healthy, but on the other hand does not excuse the high proportio of illeteracy found among educated people.
What Gives Me Hope very little, but I like the woodpecker outside and the collared dove that comes to visit me. We frequently have long conversations.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Being grossly incompetent in social politics, I can asure you that this is one thing I would never do--yet the banality of the question also stimulates my healthy skepticism as not all cities are alike and many have different problems. care2 reword it?
What/who changed my life and why absolutely none as have read too many books and seen too few films. A shame they didn't include opera and stageworks into this questions. Wozzech by Alban Berg and Don Giovanni with Abaddo conducting, two operas that gave me the worst nightmares. Most difficult opera to study in past repertoire is not Parsifal, but Frau ohne Schatten by Strauss, the Amee, not the Empress. Turandot, I would never consider.
