These days are important for me. As you know, the own life sometimes does appear as a set of steps. One of them is recently closed. But here, the principle of wave superposition does apply. As in economics. As in nature. As in personal life.
I am here as a result of many effects. Familiar environment, a main one. Education, social and work entourace others. Since my childhood I asked myself about things I saw around. My parents were Civil Servants since Republic time. And I was born in General Franco' era. I saw it as a provisional system... awaiting new things, new government, new culture, new human relationship...Whole Spain was an Island. An enpoverished country, with proud people still thinking about past Imperial glories to hide misery of present, fear and repression, and then lack of confidence in others, a lot of people wishing grass on somebody else, and so on.
Not strange that Spaniards are like Islands. Isolate people. Not able to team work, to cooperate.
In psychological terms, a devastated land.
Bureaucracy is heavy, unprepared and unefficient. Spain is a country built by Lawyers and for Lawyers. Aside science and technology.
Speaking about my thinking and manners, it was clear that I should go away to explore new fields. However, I stayed in the country by my Parents. I wanted reward them at least with some company from time to time. Really I ought everything to them. And I think one have to be grateful to anyone who has given us love.
In common terms, Lawyers are not popular in Spain. People link them to bureaucracy, Justice and all that. Not smelling very well. However, I grew up in a kind of environment quite different to the mean one. Then, landing on very real fields was a bit difficult. You only know things when directly experienced. Therefore, I did not know Spanish Justice until past 1985.
It was the year I had to cope with a plaintiff sent to Court by the builder of my house.
It was the beginning of a long history. An horror history still unfinished.
