In a couple of weeks I'll turn 50 years old. Halfway! I know for sure I'll make it to 100 years of age.
Can you imagine how surprised, happy and content I felt, 30 years ago, when I found out that there was history before the Bible and Christianity? That there was an ancient Egypt where the Jews and Christians "borrowed", "inherited", "stole" or ... (there must be more images) the snake and a gate with someone waiting to decide if you led or a "good" or "bad" life?
In a way that feeling still glows in me. It's the well that tells me time and again that there are so many secrets to discover just by following trails. Following trails and find sources with water that quenches the thirst of curiosity.
