    What AN owesome interviewer... what AN ability to bring out the important 'things' people keep inside themselves... what A way to perceive life and to appreciate IT with such AN awareness... what A talented way to exchange words! ! ! ... the jornalist? ... the photographer? ...the poet? ... the designer? ... the psycologist? ... the editor? ... I have met very few people in my life as real as Bob is. The thing that most enchantes me about people is their humanity... their simple way see clearly what is there... their capacity to connect to each other in the deepest sense... the ability to really care... to move out of their own way to make something happen to someone else... to realize that we are all here to somehow supporte each other without even processing it. Bravo! ! !

to the curb
I sometimes start to reach
for his hand
