Personal Quote:

You have to do everything, particularly if you want to avoid being typecast. I was a Beatnik and a Hippie. In the 1960s we drove a Kombi van from Switzerland to India. Along the way we discovered Subud. Mardiah and I first came to Indonesian in 1971, but we didn't decide to buy a house here till three years ago. It's a lovely place to relax and enjoy life.
