Yup… Lithuanian article/interview about yours truly… I have no idea what it says, I can only hope I sound good!
Jaq Greenspon į Kauną atvyko prieš šešerius metus. Humoro jausmo ir drąsių išvaizdos detalių nestokojantį vyrą gatvėje pastebi daugelis, o geriausiai jį pažįsta, žinoma, studentai, kuriems jis dėsto. Šią įdomią bei spalvingą asmenybę iš kitų išskiria dar vienas neeilinis faktas – jis Las Vegasą, kur praleido didžiąją gyvenimo dalį, iškeitė į Kauną.

See… along with the personality, you can see certain traits form and develop like eddies and whirlpools in a tidal inlet. Continue reading
I love postcards. I’m a fan in general of souvenirs but nine times out of ten or even 99/100 if I buy anything at all, it’s postcards. When I travel, I tend to get postcards everywhere then spend my time in the evenings at local bars or coffee shops (or on trains or busses) writing them out and sending them from my next stop.

As an older father, right or wrong, I spend a lot of my time running numbers in my head. How old will I be when Monki hits certain milestones – when she graduates high school, for example, I’ll be 67. I’d kinda like to be around for those milestones (call me crazy, I know). Continue reading
