And of course I know I’ve been missing a lot of others!

Whom would I like to work with in the future? With whoever has a deep sensibility and strong attitude for empathy. (And who loves clarity too.)
What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on? I have two secret projects. I’m already workin on it, but only in my few free time, so it’s very hard for me and I imagine that they will take me a lot of time. But they are about something special, not simply something material: those are simply two project about happiness.
