Aude sapere

"it's just a life story, so there's no climax"

Name:
pens that don't work
friends only.


"aude sapere" - Horace. Translated variously as "dare to know," "dare to be wise," or, my favorite, dare to think for yourself.

Once I wrote an entire essay without verbs about why people shouldn't use verbs.
It was warmly received though misunderstood.
There's more to me than that.

I try to live my life in a way such that my future biographer has a really interesting job.

I don't really live in Germany anymore. But I really did live at the last train stop.


Most of the time, I add back those who add me. You should be aware, though, that it's not always sunshine & fuzzy bunnies over here, although there are usually lots of cat pictures. Livejournal is my home, and has been for close to 10 over 10 years now...so make yourself at home, please.
