Other Remarks

About myself
For me “no life without water” goes much beyond the biological function: I have studies it, built my career on it, used it to swim in, sail across and dive into, and am still working on being able to turn it into wine. – But most importantly, water has brought my wife and me together!
What water means to me..
Mystical and healing, inspiring and relaxing.
