About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To understand and/or transcend.

ABOUT ME

Hello :-)

One can be quite different things in different situations/ environments and our self image might not be similar to how we are viewed, so I'd rather not make an advertisement of myself and I'll let you have your own impressions in any kind/ level of contact we may have.

I'm not the biggest and loudest talker but yes I enjoy communication. Moreover, though I do have my set of appreciated values, I try not to be hypocritical, demagogic, artificial or delusional about them.

I'm shy and sometimes misread, but I'm cordial, friendly, like to have fun and seek to share life with people and learn more social and human skills, and these are the reasons why I'm here. If you think we have something in common or that differences make for a nice contrast, contact me.

PHILOSOPHY

Live in the moment, timelessly. Flow.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not necessarily the most amazing thing, but at least a very significant one: the view of Rio de Janeiro from the Corcovado. I felt what a breathtaking view really is. It's amazing how the juggernaut-rocks, the green, the sea, the sky and the urban constructs look so beautiful and harmonic together. Definitely breath taking and thrilling. You almost can feel the city as a living being.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm, hard to think of myself in the position of teaching. Things are taught and learnt rather naturally, through a relaxed interaction and connection. Some people say I inspire tranquility and zen atitude...which is not the case 100% of the time, but yes I try to walk in that direction. Maybe it is rather a process of self discovery and then external discovery, then if anything has to be taught, learned, shared, whatever, it will happen naturally. I'm a good listener and I'm curious about different lifestyles and see things through different perspectives and trying to integrate everything. And still, there are things we'd rather unlearn and let go of, don't you think? :-)
