Hi all and every one!

I am just a guy that came into "the mind of the beast" (Che Guevara word about Switzerland) by natural way it was 59 years ago. Back in the eighties, I was living ten years into a squat in Geneva. After these years, I was living an ordinary life made of work, food, drink, sex and sleep, both as self-worker and as a proletarian.

10 years later, I moved to Sweden with my girlfriend. Ordinary life again and a kid. Poor boy, our society didn't not deserve him!

10 years later, back to Switzerland, Ordinary life again.

Beside that, I made few travels into my life, mostly in other European countries, with the exception of 4 trips to Cuba. This is an amazing country. Their political system is not perfect, but they have a few laws that make some differences. Among them, housing is not an individual right, but an obligation of the State. The result is that even the worst social case of the Island have no existential problem, and the ambiance is a little bit like into a big squat.

Also, it is no commercial publicity in the Island, which make a travel in Cuba a cure for the mind. And the peoples are very kind and empathetic.

I have a wife living in Cuba, she have 2 children. They are living into a 2 floors house with terrace and garden. It is no divorced mother I know here in Switzerland living in such a house. My goal is to travel back to Cuba and live with them into the Island.

Beside that, I am now vaccinated against the compulsory work and living into a refuge for immigrants - some kind of alternative way of squatting and helping other human beings at the same times. I begun to learn again to make music it was 2 years ago (still learning, but making fast progress), and I also begun to play theater. I also made some songs writing-composing. I am not interested to play like Carlos Santana, Luther Allison or any other, which imply I make my own arrangements of all the songs I play. I am not becoming rich, but I enjoy each instant of my new life. I can call this a rebirth. And I am a lucky bastard, because it is plenty of peoples acting like zombies during their whole life, and I am not one of them.

My grand mother learned me one thing: We live only one time, so we must enjoy it. For me, that's true even if we live several times, because we live only one time at a time, and it is here and now. For me, the best way to enjoy life is to learn of other peoples and to share what we can with them. And of course to have fun.

Be in peace and love !

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
Cincy, somehow is full of kids last year or so, like it.
