Definitely gonna keep him with me, as many people have, it’s pretty incredible seeing the impact that he has had from somebody that wasn’t trying at all, on his own and how inspiring it was.  It’s also interesting seeing who designates him as foolhardy…and they call him insane, but sometimes I think what people consider normal that, that could be insane.

It’s hard sometimes not to think about what I could be doing right now if I did not have this body, or had taken this or that particular track in life instead of the one I am currently on.  Where could I be?  Who could I be with?  Where could I be sleeping?  I sometimes dream of the wild, of nature, the sea of tree trunks spreading to all horizons and the sound of trickling water.  It is a dream sure, it is a dream but the only prison, I think, is me.  It can be hard to be true to yourself when you have to break those familial and friendly bonds, the rusty chains that are lined with such love.

In the meantime we have this beautiful music:
