About

Well, this is all about me, I guess. I have a lot of different interests and being a sceptic is really only one of them. You might find me meditating or trawling the bloggosphere. I even go out for walks from time to time. In fact, I can hardly wait to go kayakking again:

My room is full of books, with new ones arriving on a weekly basis. I tell myself that I just like to do my bit to keep the economy afloat. With the help of other bloggers, I have compiled a very tempting reading list and that makes me really happy. I also like scuba diving and to have new experiences, the kind that make my heart race and the kind that make me smile almost imperceptibly. English is not my native language, so any comments to help me improve my command of it are much appreciated.

Starting out writing about zen, scepticism and atheism, I have recently developed an interest in all things Nietzschean. My motto being: ‘total immersion’, you might encounter details of my explorations on this blog. If you don’t trust my insight on the subject, please check with a professional at [blog since deleted: sorry]

“One does not only wish to be understood when one writes; one wishes just as surely not to be understood.” Nietzsche

In writing this blog, I like to explore, to think and to teach myself something. My ideas and opinions are not fixed and I have no intention to solidify them. For their development, your comments are indispensable. In return, I’ll be happy to read your writings and comment on them. The quality of the discussions and the humour I have encountered are a source of real joy.

  1. Thanks for visting my blog. Your command of the English language is certainly better than a lot of native speakers that I know, mainly my redneck relatives. Lovely kitty, by the way.

  2. Hi there, clubschadenfreude. I must admit I was a bit hesitant to visit the boss’ office, but now I’m glad I did. Thank you for your comment.

    Just wanted to give you a heads up that I nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You can find the rules for accepting the award

    http://landofquo.com/award-season/very-inspiring-blogger-award/

    I’ll also take this opportunity to apologize for the effort you will have to expend in accepting the award if you choose to do so. It takes a while, but is worth it to the blog community (that’s what they’ve told me, anyway). Regardless, thanks for making the blogworld more inspiring in your own way. Congrats, and thanks!

  4. Dear quo.
    Thank you very much for nominating me. I have thought long and hard about this, but I don’t think I am going to nominate 15 other bloggers to carry on this award. One reason is that I am new to blogging. I don’t feel ready to paste any kind of award on this work in progress.
    The other is that I am very sympathetic to the idea of there being a blogging community. I really feel inspired to read or see what other people make. It makes me stop and think, stop and explore, sometimes. And that makes me very happy.
    But, it’s a very important aspect of blogging that you’re free. Free to say or like something and equally free not to. Free to talk about yourself (I choose to be honest about what I say, but nobody’s checking) or not to say something.
    For me, knowing people in this realm is different from anywhere else. And I would like to keep it that way.
    Of course, sharing my current opinion on this with you means exactly that and nothing more. I’m not trying to make you, or anyone else agree with me on this one.
    Thanks again for looking at my blog and mentioning me. I do feel honoured. And I’ll be checking out landofquo.

  5. Thank you for visiting Biting The Plum. I love finding other skeptics out there who also realize that trait is not antithetical to meditation.

    Your profile resonates with me very strongly. Like yourself Books are my best friend as well. I find that ‘books escalate wisdom’.
