When 2015 ended…

Pretty in silly. 😀 Christmas with great food and fantastic people. I ate something for the first time that evening–chicken with purple potatoes from France.

One week after and it was the end of the year in Vienna. It was a good year and it ended beautifully.

SEARCH THE JESSIE JASEN ARCHIVES

Born in 1978, I began writing at the age of seven. I was an avid reader from the very beginning. I fell in love with books, music, movies, nature, sports, culture, science, history, and the arts. I taught myself English and German, and ended up studying seven languages. I’m autodidactic. There is something in me that always drives me toward learning and improving my life. Pain-free living is what I believe in and strive toward, which is why health and well-being are a priority. Learning about the world and the functioning of my body isn’t only mental for me. Learning is also a physical and a spiritual experience.

I’m a lover of nature and the outdoors. Nature is the greatest teacher. When in nature, I feel my cells regenerating and my soul expanding. There’s nothing more gratifying than playing sports and exercising in nature. I’m a huge fan of kayaking. It gives me an opportunity to get to know rivers, canals, and lakes intimately, and see the sky from a different perspective. Hiking in mountains, jogging, riding a bicycle, skiing are all great ways to see the world the way you don’t get to when you’re living in the city.

I enjoy eating healthy. My diet mainly consists of raw and organic food. In 2016, I realized that my skin was suffering from dehydration, and my organism and spirit from chemicals that are almost in everything these days. I began making my own facial creams, shower gels, and shampoos, and avoiding all foods and drinks with artificial ingredients. My skin and health improved tremendously. After a heavy case of bronchitis, I’ve also quit smoking. I’ve stopped drinking alcohol even occasionally. I have no cravings and for the first time in many years, I feel free. What’s more, there’s a sense of calm. Excellent athletic abilities have kicked in, allowing me to write and perform sports for hours. I study various disciplines and read 50 – 150 books per year. Lifelong learning is what I firmly believe in. The older I get, the younger I am.
