I am slightly crazy and totally sarcastic, with a nasty icing of cynicism. I exude pessimistic vibes every now and then. However, I do actively look for things that make me happy, like birds, damselflies and dragonflies, mountains and of course, books. Generous, inspiring people and people who enjoy what they do for a living while being good at it, make me feel like it is, after all, worthwhile being human. I hope to write about things in a way that makes them interesting.. and makes me more human-like. No matter how many times I rewrite this, still comes out corny. I give up

      • Yes it is. I love their bright paintings of nature all over, like on the VW bus you saw! If you are ever in the Monteverde region you should look up Marvin Rockwell an American who settled down there with a Quaker community, his stories are marvelous and his courage and generosity of spirit is so rare. He is 93 after all. I have a post on when we met him. But seeing him tell his stories is another experience altogether!
