Hanging in Suburbia

I've been chillin in suburbia with my new friend Marcin - I acctually could be his dad, but we're having fun. He is studying to be some kind of land-measurer in the university, but he is more interested in doing some sort of business. He worked in Norway last year, and is traveling back again this summer. His family is taking some vacationtime in Norway as well and he is trying to convince me to take his family into the artic mountains. Im thinking that I maybe will.

[I did. Go -> here <- for the report.]

Marcins babuzca; she made sunday dinner for us - way to much! - and afterwards she joined us for drinks on the terrace. A very cool woman who worked as a teacher and a principal. She speaks german and russian in addition to polish, and she studies english with the systematic devotion I guess you could imagine of a retired language-teacher. She loves to travel and is to shy to really speak anything but polish.

Jean-Paul Sartre once wrote "As far as men go, it is not what they are that interests me, but what they can become." Walking in the countryside with Marcin his non-pretensious hippie-nature shines, and his love for the art of bonsai shows his soul to be rather of the patient and gentle artist than the rich-kid playing with drugs and danger he appears to be.

I love beeing stoned in nature. People using drugs to pacify themselves should seek therapy as that is a serious indication of a deeper problem.
