About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live

ABOUT ME

Well, it's already difficult to describe other people, so describing oneself is even harder! We're so deep and complex, yet so simple at the same time... So I'll better tell you briefly what I like and you decide: happiness, vitality, sense of humor, passion for life, love, simplicity, our misterious world, a bit of insanity and crazyness, knowledge, curiosity, stories, art, Mother Nature, good hearts, dancing, singing, exploring, knowing myself, learn about yourselves, feel, cry and laugh... to be alive.

I live in the island of Mallorca, in a village in the mountains called Esporles. The village is really beautiful, surrounded by nature, easy and quiet life... And the whole island is a paradise!

PHILOSOPHY

Smile everyday, live my own life in happiness, become better everyday, feel thankful for everything I have, learn to know myself, help the ones who suffer.

ITHAKA

When you set out for Ithaka
ask that your way be long,
full of adventure, full of instruction.
The Laistrygonians and the Cyclops,
angry Poseidon - do not fear them:
such as these you will never find
as long as your thought is lofty, as long as a rare
emotion touch your spirit and your body.
The Laistrygonians and the Cyclops,
angry Poseidon - you will not meet them
unless you carry them in your soul,
unless your soul raise them up before you.

Ask that your way be long.
At many a Summer dawn to enter
with what gratitude, what joy -
ports seen for the first time;
to stop at Phoenician trading centres,
and to buy good merchandise,
mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,
and sensuous perfumes of every kind,
sensuous perfumes as lavishly as you can;
to visit many Egyptian cities,
to gather stores of knowledge from the learned.

Have Ithaka always in your mind.
Your arrival there is what you are destined for.
But don't in the least hurry the journey.
Better it last for years,
so that when you reach the island you are old,
rich with all you have gained on the way,
not expecting Ithaka to give you wealth.
Ithaka gave you a splendid journey.
Without her you would not have set out.
She hasn't anything else to give you.

And if you find her poor, Ithaka hasn't deceived you.
So wise you have become, of such experience,
that already you'll have understood what these Ithakas mean.
