More interesting info about my life as a human or tree or as a mountain or..
I am really good in making parmigiana, eating mushrooms, drinking tea, climbing small mountains, pretending to do aikido once every sometime, swimming in the Rhein and dreaming about Containers. Containers are an amazing metaphor about moving things without knowing the content and incredible source of modular transportation. I dream of meeting a container once, I dream of talking with dinosaurs and reading Donna Haraway, Bruno Latour, while eating a big red fish.

Once upon a time I saw a weird duck and I liked it.
Update! I saw the duck a second time, I am not sure anymore
if it is a duck or a dog or a bush.
