I reduce life to the essence: I look after a beautiful Bernese farmhouse, try to live self-sufficiently from my big garden, make menus from what I find in the garden, look after the animals, learn to play the guitar, I heat with wood, I write messages in the middle of the night if I feel like, I just found out that I have to write a book (partly for self-therapy), I avoid to use the car as much as possible, ask people what's their favorite thing in life (what's yours?), prepare to go to Burning Man next year, explore new music (since a year I'm quite into techno), visit clubs in Bern, Basel, and Zurich, where great Dj's are playing, I drive there in my old Volkswagen Bus and sleep in it after the party, I change my life/behavior/attitude if I think it's necessary, think about whether I should start working as a psychiatrist again, make new friends, sometimes I am in doubt about everything, sometimes I feel deeply blissed.
This is beauty:
And this as well:
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming—Wow…What a Ride!" Robert Wickman
