Not at sxsw - whereever that may be - a small contribution from Basel, Switzerland at this moment:
I do what I do (IdwId) because it is a pleasure to do it as long as IdwId is consonant with what I value in the depths of my soul.
I may not know what I value, or better, I may not be able to express in words or concepts what I deeply value, but when I express it in my very action - in what I do and how I do it - I know it for certain by a sense of whole-soul pleasure.
So IdwId because I cherish a life of pleasure and a rich soul-life for me and all that I come in touch with.

Thank you Debbie. Great to see you Thursday!
Tony - thank you for your collaboration! I keep meeting people who know just what "wdydwyd?" is! And they smile brightly.
Thank you Texas Fan and yes, thank you Bice.
