Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope myself - sometimes :-), the continuity of life, anicca, pleasure in simple things and small gestures, nature, the yellow arrows
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why 2 teachers. One who was exacting, and expected nothing less than correctness. The other, who cried when our results were dismal, and paced the corridors while we sat for our finals. Both, who equally cared, each in their own way.

Books, books, books written from land far away, which fired my imagination and curiousity, and turned me into an explorer and traveller.

Planet of the Apes which put into perspective for me the significance of majority and minority.

The Camino, which showed to me it is possible to live a simple life, and how beautiful a simple life is. Most of all, the Camino taught me trust and belief, in life.
What Bugs Me laying of guilt, deceit, animal abuse, hypocrisy, injustice  
What Scares Me myself - sometimes :-(, losing hope, mob hysteria, losing the ones I love, losing my mind  
Role Models  
Quotation And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair
- Kahlil Gibran

I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
Wendell Berry

One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple
Jack Kerouac

the heart has its reasons, of which reason knows nothing
- Pascal

Caminante, son tus huellas
el camino, y nada más;
caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
- Antonio Machado
