About Me

ABOUT ME

FIRST OF ALL WE ARE IN RURAL AREA IN THE MOUNTAINS 14KM AWAY FROM CALI. WE ARE IN A SOCIAL CHANGE, NATURAL AGRICULTURE PROJECT THAT AIMS TO SELFSUSTAINABILITY AND ECOLOGY.
I fail describing myself. People also fail and they contradict themselves all the time. I think that you can get some idea about me reading my interests. Mainly I am a curious and kind person.

PHILOSOPHY

Every philosophy crashes against reality sooner than later, that´s the reason why there are so many... so that´s it, bad if one is for too long.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Done: solving math problems through a dream, watching the stars with my father until late when i was five.
I was swimming in the sea near Florianopolis and I suddenly felt a presence behind me so strongly that I did stop and turn around to discover dolphins behind me.
Everlasting love.
