I believe that events that profoundly affect our life happen mostly by accident. Empathy drives me, past hurts define me and makes me the person I am today.
As a story teller I want to take people on a journey, show you places untouched by time, have you touch and taste the words itself. I want you to live the passion itself.
When I love, I love deeply. One suck love in my homeland, Mama Africa and when I dream of her is always in my mother tongue “It’s always vivid with the colours of my homeland.” Dirk B
l love reading science fiction, fantasy and paranormal. I sneak in a bit of poetry once in awhile. And Dante… don’t forget Dante
“Amor, ch'al cor gentile ratto s'apprende
prese costui de la bella persona
che mi fu tolta; e 'l modo ancor m'offende.
Amor, che a nullo amato amar perdona,
Mi prese del costui piacer sì forte,
Che, come vedi, ancor non m'abbandona..."
"Love, which quickly arrests the gentle heart,
Seized him with my beautiful form
That was taken from me, in a manner which still grieves me.
Love, which pardons no beloved from loving,
took me so strongly with delight in him
That, as you see, it still abandons me not...”
Dante Alighieri, Inferno: A New Verse Translation
