Portugal


Quicktime 59mb 3:48

It is important to me to experience other cultures, languages, lives, foods, and, most certainly, places. I see it as part of my work towards becoming a more rounded person. Unlike many people, whether they admit it or not, I do not care about my image or reputation. However, I must agree that it pleases me when others mention that they think of me as a 'good' person; I feel a sense of accomplishment. Often times, I will do things to alter another's perception of me, so that any reputation I may have with them might be shattered. I am instrinsically motivated. I enjoy things for the joy that they give me.

I often feel alone. Not because I am alone, but because those I am with, or those that wish to be with me, are extrinsically motivated. Even more so, because I am reminded of their betrayals.

This is a small glimpse into my visit to Portugal.

This is my life. This is me.

Good music. Beautiful shots. My favorites were the smaller ones in life, the cats and the man playing the guitar. And the people waving at the conference. Looks like a wonderful time. Makes me want to travel with my dad.
