  • I am from Mexico, from Mayaland.

    Before I was - am - from the old city of Hamburg in Germany, I am from what in dialect they call De Waterkant.

    I am from a loving father and a troubled mother, who only - but fortunately - learnt to be happy until very old age.

    I am from grandparents about who I know much too Little and my great - grandparents are lost already in the fog of the past.

    After visiting Yellowstone National Park, I know that I am from the fire at the center of the Earth and from the much bigger fires of exploding stars much further back in time.

    In the end, you know, we are all from the same place...
