Čiste namjere / Pure Intent

One day the misery will be defeated....and we will be the parents of many children of many races


excusez moi mes amis!

I feel as if I've been rude.

I still really don't have much of a clue who reads this and why....but nonetheless I enjoy your company.

So....good morning to you good people. Sabina poignantly reminded me that when we were stateside for our extended holiday that I didn't write a word. Upon return to BiH I have written many. So it goes.

I'm not sure what that exactly means. But I guess in a sense it means that I'm back...with no clear direction or intention of who, what, where, when or why. Time will define that. At least its a good enough excuse for now....leave it up to the Gods ;).

I hope you've all coped at least somewhat decently with Bosnia's funky winter. Spring is upon us. See you on the other side. peace

Čiste namjere / Pure Intent
<< 03/2011 >>


What is cista namjera
Although i have become an honorary balkanite, one thing that truly bothers me is how distrustful we are of each other and how quick we are to criticize without necessarily knowing all the facts. I will certainly criticize...and rant & rave about the environment and other things that get ispod moj koze. But i promise to do it with the pure intent. No lies. No bull shit. And entirely open to criticism.

about me
I am a semi-nomadic global activist...bosnaphile, ecologist, hiker, writer, new yorker/sarajevan. Bosnia and Herzegovina has been my home after i hitchhiked from Germany to BiH on Christmas day 1992. People always ask me what was the hardest thing about coming to Bosnia during those times. My answer is always the same...'leaving!'

What about you?
This blog isn't about me. It's about us. I'd love to hear from you...your comments, complaints, suggestions, passions, fears, whatever. What I'd rather not have is a stupid nationalistic exchange on who did what, when. I'm not interested in finger pointing but constructive dialog. If you happen to be one of those negativci...leave your negative energy somewhere else please. Hvala.

I have already received comments from some of you asking me to write or comment on certain issues. That, in fact, is what this is all about. I welcome requests to write about certain topics...and if i can, i surely will. Feel free to ask me to address specific topics.
