"These are my Rivers",
Lawrence Ferlinghetti (1919)

This journal is an attempt to build a cartography of the explorations I and I are doing in life: a collection of experiences, encounters, ideas and things learned outside of the usual box.

Our research method is nomadic, aims always at crossing borders and seeks liberty of thought, healthy criticism and hopefully good humour.
