Playing makes me laugh! Laughing makes me BREATH! Breathing makes me feel good. Feeling good makes me better to be around. Being better to be around makes people who are awesome attracted to me. When people who are awesome are attracted to me, I feel awesome. When I feel awesome, I do fun things. When I do fun things, I experience more of life. When I experience more of life, I am less on my mobile phone or computer. When I am less on my mobile phone or computer, I feel GREAT. When I feel great, I sing. When I sing, I dance. When I dance, I play! When I play, I laugh. When I laugh I BREATH….(Look at that, a beautiful circle of amazingness).

Two truths and a lie about Roberto:
He enjoys dancing, singing and playing the fool. He doesn’t enjoy coriander, pollution and bigotry.
