The Crabby

The Crabby
Two days ago I had to run – with little time to do so – to the grocery store to buy a single item that I needed at the moment. I got off the car holding only my car keys and my credit card, to reduce weight and time, in the belief that the lightness... Read more »

Listening is giving

Listening is giving
I do not exactly know if it’s a product of my imagination or a perspective temporarily invaded of emotions that will change later, but I have the painful feeling that society as a whole – with its always good exceptions – is losing its hearing. I believe we’re just becoming deaf by leaps and bounds... Read more »

Not a pending matter anymore

Not a pending matter anymore
Nine years and a few months went to finalize an outstanding matter. So I admit it now, but never before believing what was best for me then. I had, with someone who I greatly cared, one of the biggest confrontations of my life that brought as consequence, radical changes involving labor and soul issues. My... Read more »

Life is a Dream

Life is a Dream
¿What is life? A frenzy extreme,  ¿A shadow of things that seem; and the greatest good is but small, I just hung up the phone and do not know if I’ll hear again the voice that, weaker, sad and resigned than ever, said to be tired of a sick body and wished to go. This... Read more »

My new diet
For over two decades I have done more than 30 different diets,  consumed and applied on my body, all sorts of potions, ointments, home remedies, teas, spices, soaps, lotions, food supplements and everything that claims to reduce weight and sizes. Though not my degree, in the practice of many years, I have become an accountant:... Read more »

The good prevails over evil: Boston

The good prevails over evil: Boston
The first blog post I wrote when I started to join the group of ChicagoNow, was entitled: “Nationality: runner ” and every word of that text came out of the soul, not the mind. It was what I felt at that moment, for the great joy combined with nerves, uncertainty, anxiety and adrenaline of running,... Read more »

The pleasure of aging

The pleasure of aging
When I turned 30 I felt a terrible nostalgia for leaving behind and forever, the well-known twenties and going fully and without permission, to the feared thirties… I was ordinarily involved in the trivial thought  that when entering to the decade that begins with 3 I would start becoming old, because only 10 years later...

Less INTERnet, more INNER silence

Less INTERnet, more INNER silence
While I was hastily typing the keyboard of my computer, tirelessly surfing the internet, a rare feeling invaded my body, a kind of deep silence made me only hear the beating of my heart: there he was, my wonderful 10 month old son, who minutes before was crawling across the floor of the room where...

The unquestionable beauty

The unquestionable beauty
We have always said that beauty is a subjective appraisal. To this day, scholars of aesthetics and philosophers have failed to agree on its definition,since,according to them,the beauty is not defined, but recognized,hence the famous quote: “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” By being relative, there is no universal standard,but perhaps we all...
