you are totally right, I should have put:
"someone who simply creates a cloud can also say something to me"

and you dont know how you hit me in a moment that I doubt strongly 
about my urge to teach anything here (and to my girl friend, thats 
where the impulse comes from), while the learning really comes from 
playing, and for this, I contribute with instruments and music :-)

and for a nice exchange of subtle ideas, this channel is slow, I 
spend too much time reading and trying to find understandable words...

anything is somehow interesting to me, at least for a little moment :-)
