Where do you find inspiration?

I am currently budget-travelling with my partner, Ion and I am always inspired by our travels and the changing scenery it offers. This includes the general landscape of what I see around me as we move from place to place, the subtle differences, changes of season, people, the beauty of nature and the animals we encounter. I tend to write when I feel a strong emotional response to something. For example, when I was in Bali, I was really affected by a Balinese cremation ceremony. In Greece, I was overwhelmed by the philoxenia of the Greek people we met. It can be a single, simple moment or experience, too. 

Why do you write/create Creative Non-Fiction?

I love the beauty, incongruence and fragility of real life, so I like to write about real-life experiences of love, relationships, life and loss. I am also deeply affected by injustice, and the mistreatment of animals, so I write about these things, too – although I’ve discovered most people would prefer not to hear about them! 

These days, I find most fictional stories and movies too shallow. I appreciate real people with real stories — not the Hollywood version of them. Moving away from what, say, celebrities are up to, to the real world, the whole world — of suffering, joy, beauty and humanness. I think there are enough interesting and different people, places, histories and traditions to learn about without having to invent trite scenarios or make things up.

What are you reading now?

I tend to flick around a lot and read bits and pieces from anywhere and everywhere. I read daily about animal welfare and animal issues around the world. I have lately been reading poems from various poets, such as Philip Larkin, Adelio Prado, Xiao Yue Shan, and Pablo Neruda. I also really like Clarissa Pinkola Estes, who tells and writes about myths and old tales. I love how she uncovers the deep psychology of old stories; this really appeals to me.

    ■ For Opera, Netscape 6/7, and Mozilla the Plug-In also requires the Add-ons/Plug-In menu option within your web browser.
    ■ The “external program for Firefox” feature will only work in Firefox/Mozilla.
    If your versions of Opera, Netscape, or Mozilla were too old to have the “Open with External Program” added, download the latest version of the GetRight Plug-In and try again. http://www.google.com.qa/url?sa=t&url=https://bitwurzteachdoi.weebly.com

    Also, after some time it may prove extremely convenient to have integrated printers since fax sending and receiving may get too repetitive.

    To simulate the data transfer process, the pattern described here is set up. Firstly, data is received from the data source, which could be another Web application. Then the data is stored in the database. Data can also be transformed into other formats, such as for XML, or uploaded to a different database. Once the data is transferred, database changes and updates, if any, are synchronized.

    It should also be pointed out that an IDE is not a compulsory requirement although it would be nice to have some kind of a synchronization with those of the IDE.

    If you are currently planning a strategy to enhance the functionality of a library required in the field of computer vision, a software utility such as JavaCV could come in handy. What the tool does is offer a Java interface for OpenCV, libdv1394, FFmpeg, OpenKinect, video https://www.fooos.fun/social/upload/files/2022/05/GiW8jAAdosl8DSzrdTko_19_c84d1a2536b090a530098cf903d561f4_file.pdf 05e1106874 whyclo
