On Crawling out of a Black Hole

Falling into a black hole is something that just happens. Everything can seem to be going fine and then… thump! You’re in a very dark place and you don’t know your way out. When you’re in there and you can’t see clearly, it’s easy to get lost in the darkness, to get stuck without knowing what to do or where to go, without knowing who … Continuer de lire On Crawling out of a Black Hole

On transitioning and transcending

My transition from 2018 to 2019 is happening at an airport. Anyone who knows me knows how much I dread airports. I hate the way they feel, the fake light, the way people behave in them and, most of all, the amount of time you spend just standing in line and waiting. They are uncomfortable little bits of hell! My mother on the other hand … Continuer de lire On transitioning and transcending

Breaking down imaginary walls

Lately I’ve been feeling stuck. Stuck in a situation that I (still) haven’t figured out how to deal with. I don’t appreciate being stuck… my life goals are set and I have things that have to be accomplished according to a very tight imaginary schedule.

If the idea got stuck in my head in the first place … Continuer de lire You acknowledge my existence… therefore I exist?

Hello World, this is me!

It’s like being in the same place, at the same time as other human beings is just not enough. Everyone still wants to « fit in », to meet certain socio-economic and cultural standards.

The ultimate breakfast experience

A friend of mine once told me that breakfasts at my place were “legendary”. I’m not one to brag (or maybe I am), but this actually might be true. You see, breakfasts at my place are not just about “breaking the fast” imposed on us by a good night’s sleep, it’s a wholesome experience. I love to cook, I always have… for as long as … Continuer de lire The ultimate breakfast experience
