Enthusiastic about the sum of knowledge there is to learn, trying to understand how our past shapes our future and how we may shape it.
A dreamer in my way, fiction in all its forms (including the computerised) a fuel.
I have a long term partner that I love (she's on OKC somewhere) but I feel I have not explored relationships enough and would like to live again the transformation of acquaintance into intimacy.
I'm occasionnaly in Antananarivo, Kinshasa, Moroni, Phnom Penh and elsewhere.
I try to help our world become a better place by the choices I make (but like us all, am full of contradiction). My job is to contribute to bringing lasting water to unlucky places. I perhaps spend too much time at this…
When there is time, I do wood-cuts, try to keep a travel blog, try to write a story.
I have a feeble for the Mediterranean though… and I like science fiction (from Ursula Le Guin to Alasdair Reynolds — Paolo Baccigalupi!).
Lists are anchors, so here are just a few more names, relatively recent discoveries:
Roman noir / crime – Leonardo Padura (the whole Mario Conde thing is brilliant, but as is El Hombre que Amaba los Perros)
Fantasy – Jean-Philippe Jaworski (Même pas mort is a great well researched story set in the early Iron Age)
Music – Concha Buika
Cartoon / anime – Isao Takahata's Princess Kaguya
Comic / graphic novel – El Arte de Volar (Kim and Antonio Altarriba)
The way my life moves and where it is going.
Things to add, things to take away.
