    I was told to be a synaesthetist by my own visions of genetic mutations of
    my DNA. My first contact with "competent" doctors was with 18 months of age. I got a tropic virus in Colombia, South America, when I was there the first time of my life with my parants. We visited Cali, Cartagena, San Andres and so on... Colombia is the nation, where my mother was born in 1950 as youngest child of an old spanish grande, comperable to the word peer in "the peerage of england", and a younger noble lady, born to the house of the dukedom Osuna, there she was the oldest daughter of a branche of all these relationships created so many centuries ago. So, I got there a very dangerous virus with fever symptomatical equal to dengue or malaria. My father didn't allow doctors to take my blood for analyse, because he couldn't accept the idea of seing me tortured by a old primitive
    needle. I nearly died there. Still today the scarves are visible in my blood by the spectre of viral tests. With three I nearly lost my ability to see, because of an old anomaly in my family, a bizarre eye desease on both eyes. They are totaly different. My left eye should be nearly blind, but my right eye sees everything in detail in the distance, as my seamingly nearly blind left eye sees everything, which is close to his radius. It is called a form of anisomethropy, which is extremly rare. Nobody can explain me, why I am what I am, but everybody seams to react helpless by trying to say me what kind of social, genetic and mind hyperanomaly I am. Nearly nobody tried or even try today to accept me and my kind of being, without an evil hopeless try to make me explainable to them in there kind of categories. Even my own father, quite similar in a few points to me, tends to call me the hellish beast, or something like that. The point is, I never had a chance to develop an eloquent identity, like my to parents before me. I am the sad surrealistic crown of mankind by my synaesthetic knowing and my mindpower of extrem forces of will. I saw so many experts
    of so many scientific fields, nobody can explain, why I am, what I am, or who I am definitly not. I have hundrets of person suits, each one is a second skin for me. I wear these suits of identities one over the other, but all of them visible on many ways the same time. The are shades of my soul
    and are all visions and versions of myself to myself, but obviously, I think about myself being lost in to many worlds inside and out. I would be happy, if I could pass only one day without the experience that everyone fears me like the worst moster of their personal nightmare over and over again. I can see myself through their eyes. I only see pain and fear caused
    by blue, golden and bloodred light...

    In the city where I live, we are already having a shortage of graves on the cemeterys to that extent that sometimes older bones are removed to make place for new burials. So the best and least expensive solution I know is cremation.
    Composting the remains would make the most sense, but humans sometimes have a shortage of sense. Composting would also be the least expensive, but many people want a memorial, and the custom of saving the remains has been around for a very long time. Many places around the world have the same problem as your city, and cremation saves space. I didn't bother going into it, but bodies in the U.S. often don't rot because of embalming and the concrete tomb, but returning to the soil is the best thing that most people could do.

    I certainly will if I can. But I'll have to wait for just now the Euro is worth about 5 times our currency.
    But as you say itīs a pleasura just browsing through.
    We have some very good libraries here too. The most interesting of them managed to introduce the love of books in a country where few people are interested in them. It expanded into a national chain, added a film and music CD section and a café all this during a time of financial crisis.
    But now I think its talented owner retired and his children took over.
    There is a distinct difference in managment: they are turning my favorite library into a stationery.

    yeah, it is great just to browse too. I do recommend you use it at least once just to get the package. Also the gift boxes, amazing...

    Thanks for this post, Helga! I went to the site of Shakespeare and Company and was delighted. I think I never saw a bookstore so after my taste: no modern bestsellers, a lot of classics instead. They succeeded in transfering the atmosphere and the charm of an old international bookstore to an internet site. I donīt know if I am ever going to use it, but I stored it under my favorites.
