About Me


Trying to keep my feet on the ground sometimes....


A perfect life for me would be one of endless discovery, so i try to touch a bit of everything...

I feel good in action and motion, or better i need it to avoid immediate disintegration
- should it be only a brownian motion as i could hear a few times

Favorite subjects = ecology, sociology, history, politics, physics, astronomy, and polar exploration.
Everyday-hobbies of full conformist style : music, movies, parties, and so.
Have become a fervent vegetarian since one year, but you should not launch me on the topic unless you're ready to face a 2 hours debate.

I like talking with unknown people at the corner of a bar, sharing new points of view, faking seriousness in the most absurd conversations.
Above all i like the points when unseen connections suddenly turn out, i like the contemplation of bare nature beauty, i like what is ephemeral and futile. I like my beer rather stout & fresh.
And not the least, i like hammocks ! (i have a theory that nobody having a hammock can be a bad guy - ok ok, already proved wrong)

Traveling is not a hobby that's a goal, just a fast passing-by landscape and light trembling of a train or the roaring of a B747 engine unleashing its power at V1 commitment-speed makes me happy regardless of the destination.
I want to see every place of the world (including my own country), and i want to see it with a mule-pulled cart. Or maybe a hydromicrolight aircraft. I should think about that.

Oh, and i never make plans so it's useless to ask too far in advance ^^


"If something can kick back, then it exists" - Dr Johnson's refutation of Berkeley's theory.

Corollary : What you are getting worked up, probably doesn't even exist.
Any kind of view, interpretation or opinion about any part of reality is nothing but a self-deception - and we have no concept which could escape the rule.
Therefore reality is a lie, and only dreams are real - cause are the only case where the view can match the object, being the object itself.
Unfortunately we don't live all in the same dream. That's also why we have words.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

building an igloo in an alpine moutain-pass in winter, walking in the moutain at night to see the sunrise from the top, spending some night hours in a tipi with "shamans" playing heart-beats with drums, sailing back to port at night by looking only at the stars for direction and forgetting the compass, swimming with a free dolphin in the Atlantic ocean, bike trip along the coast from Amsterdam to Brugges, sleeping in a hamoc at 15m above the ground in the canopy, struggling through the night for the life of a baby-bird in a closed nursery center, searching alone in the dark some secret ways in the hidden underground of Paris, repairing a waterpipe bridge in the jungle, having sunset picnic on the city roofs, ...
