About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to finish and sort of understand the "Ulysess" by JJ, in about, let's say, 5 years

ABOUT ME

I still am a dreamer and a believer, but I am 44 and so, I do balance the latter with reality. I can be both extremely social, but I can also enjoy being alone, most of the time writing, or spending time in the darkroom and on long walks. I am disciplined and believe in hard work.

PHILOSOPHY

The following statement sums it up quite nicely:
"To create you must make magic, but there is no magic without discipline"
Kenneth Anger
