sure sounds like fun life! especially from my current perspective: sitting i
an old farmhouse with -9 celsius outside, and firewood that is from a very
old torndown barn and has exhaled most of its vigour over the decades, so if
airpressure is low like today, it is hard to motivate the fire to do more
than flickeringly survive...  remembering my time in the tropics and making
plans about joining a community up in ecuador. [on reading my own statement
above, i wonder how comes i am in such good spirit throughout the day
anyways? :o) ]

i strongly want to second a recent note from john schinnerer, to not forget
about forgetting it all including yourself ever now and then, and just gaze
or watch the lizards...

keep it up!
