For a thousand years I have been dead. Not fallen, but hunted; When all human decency was imprisoned, I was free amongst the masked slaves.  I lived in those times, yet I was free. I watched the river, the earth, the sky, Turning around me, keeping their balance, The seasons provided their birds and their honey.  You who live, what have you made of your luck? Do you regret the time when I struggled? Have you cultivated for the common harvest? Have you enriched the town I lived in?  Living men, think nothing of me. I am dead. Nothing survives of my spirit or my body. John F. Kennedy was in office when I was born.
I learned to read & write when I was four.
Eight days before my sixth birthday, I had spaghetti for dinner. How do I know this? I watched the moon landing and turned atheist the same day.

I was carried out (by police) from my first house occupation when I was 13 years old and probably will be again. My interest in politics woke up for real that day.

My military “career” was 15 months as a MP (military police) in the Swedish air force.
1986 was the year for my first novel and the same year I started to work part time as a journalist.
Among a lot of other educations, I was educated at Multivac, in Wolfertschwenden.
As a repair man I travelled and worked all over EU and behind “the iron curtain” during much of the 80s.
During the 1990s I worked in removals, security, floor cleaning (janitor),as a bouncer at strip clubs & bars, bodyguard, gym instructor, repair man, in the meat industry, as a teacher/educator, journalist, writer, in public relations, copywriter, web developer, computer programer and lots of other things.
I’ve had three companies, with and without employees.
I’ve seen every fluid in the human body up close and yes, that includes brain matter.
People have been born and have died right in front of me.

Please consider this if you’re trying to lecture me.

Thank you.
