How I did it: Classical way: paper + pen. I thought that, having it all written down will make me actually see it.I also put an eye on my emotions when reading the questions, and how I was searching for the answers.I discovored that, most of these questions have made me thinking deeply. 5 have made me smile like this: :D. And about 7 have provoked a sad face: :(. But it's all good, as long as you make it honestly in front of yourself. Read how I did it…

Never fear big words.
Big long words name little things.
All big things have little names.
Such as life and death, peace and war,
Or dawn, day, night, hope, love, home.
Learn to use little words in a big way.
It is hard to do.
But they say what you mean.
When you don’t know what you mean—
Use big words.
They often fool little people.
- Arthur Kodner to his son
You just don’t know anything unless you can write it. Sure you can argue things out in your own head and bring them out at parties, but in order to argue anything thoroughly, you must be able to put it down on paper.

When travelling, the best choice to take with you as souvenirs, is to bring postards with your country/city/flag/map.
What to bring with you?
Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.
— Cesare Pavese
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

“The soul of Africa – together with my love for art – had taken hold of me, captured my senses, embraced my spirit, and (forced) me to return again and again. And yes, I did pay a dear price – without the intrigue – for the hardships far outweighed the propelling force. But the art I found was so extraordinary that it could not go unnoticed. It was also disappearing rapidly, as if a door – synchronized to my shutter speed – was closing after each exposure.”- Margaret Courtney-Clarke
