August 19, 2009My friend. I am thankful she has found me interesting enough to be friends. She's walking her own path, rather, she's carving a new path, spreading light and wisdom along the way. Many will follow this new path, and continue the legacy she has already begun. She is unafraid to be the only one with an opposing opinion, and *express* it. She is warmly attentive to those she considers friends, and it's genuine. I feel her unconditional, fierce loyalty from the other side of the Earth.
She's funny, almost dangerously witty...you have to be on your A game to see the humor behind the cerebral words of wisdom.
She's kind. Encouraging, and finds the good in people until she's given a reason to believe, otherwise. I just adore her. She's a breath of fresh air, like spring rain cleans the air...nice and clean and refreshing. Nothing compares to her, and that's why I love her!
August 1, 2009An intelligent, wise and wickedly humorous Woman! One I am honored to have as a Friend, True, direct, blunt, open, wise, informed, worldly, and a wicked Humor!!

March 27, 2009Astrid says what she thinks, no holds barred.
She's well informed, witty, and forever ready to jump dead center on false assumptions.
She will make you think.
May 10, 2008I just checked out Astrid's Aala Dameeti performance part 1 and 2 and I love the way she has her own style and interprets the music. She's very womanly and sensual and-it sounds corny-but after watching the videos I actually had a tear. The Japanese people there seem so appreciative of her sharing her art-it's intimate and heartening. Belly dance used to be this way a lot, each woman her own style, a lot now, too much alike. The music is very nice as well.
Keep on dancin' Astrid!
high definition photos of the destroyed nuclear reactors in Fukushima. You can see what a total mess this place is, it looks like something that's been bombed, almost, with a bit of smoke rising from the ruins...Sun, April 3, 2011 - 12:06 PM permalink - 8 comments

500.000 people losing their home being just one of them...
Sometimes I wonder why some friends are so completely oblivious to what is going on here.
And now we have a plutonium leak.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do...explore, dream, discover."
Who Says Words With My Mouth?
All day I think about it,
then at night I say it.
Where did I come from,
and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere,
I'm sure of that,
and I intend to end up there.
began in some other tavern.
When I get back around
to that place,
I'll be completely sober.
Meanwhile, I'm like a bird
from another continent,
sitting in this aviary.
The day is coming when I fly off,
but who is it now in my ear
who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?
Who looks out with my eyes?
What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste
one sip of an answer,
I could break out
of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord,
and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me here
will have to take me home.
I never know
what I'm going to say.
I don't plan it.
When I'm outside the saying of it,
I get very quiet
and rarely speak at all.
