My name is Dennis Dziedzic, and I was born and raised in Texas. For the past
8 years decade, I’ve lived and traveled abroad. I’ve been a backpacker, an English teacher, a homeless guy, an illegal worker, a yoga student, a clown, a painter, tattoo artist. Currently, I consider myself an improviser and a language enthusiast.
After so much travel, my wife and I decided to settle down and enjoy the fruits of a grounded, stable life. Currently, we live in Taichung City, Taiwan, where I work as a science teacher. We’re also studying Chinese and learning to grow food, two top reasons that led us to choose this country in which to settle. We won’t stay here forever, but for now, this is home.
Throughout my life, I’ve believed a lot of different things about a lot of things. I was once Catholic, then agnostic for a long time. I’ve not embraced any organized religion, but I’m back to believing in God, who I define as: a creative spiritual entity greater than any individual. I pretty much leave it at that.
After all the traveling and all the mixing up of me with the rest of the world, I’m solidly convinced that 99% of all humans want the same thing: happiness. It’s only the method for reaching this state that differ and cause so much conflict between peoples and nations. And that’s one thing this little corner of the Internet is about–how to be happier, which usually means learning something. Enjoy!
