About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find the perfect balance - ecnalab tcefrep eht dnif oT

ABOUT ME

Reading the references is always the best way to get an idea; anyway if I have to say something of myself, I could say..

Ни о чем не нужно говорить,
Ничему не следует учить,
И печальна так и хороша
Темная звериная душа:

Ничему не хочет научить,
Не умеет вовсе говорить
И плывет дельфином молодым
По седым пучинам мировым.

1909 - Осип Мандельштам

Love to live my life with passion, honesty and courage.

PHILOSOPHY

My freedom ends where your freedom begins. :)
