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 »

A Tribute to My Mom

A Tribute to My Mom
During a hot day in July and being a little girl I was wearing for the first time, some white trousers which combined well with the pink blouse of Hello Kitty that I wanted to look that morning; I felt more than frustrated and upset when discovered in front of the mirror, that I wouldn’t...

About In-laws

About In-laws
To have a solid basis in the creation of this text, which concludes in a very simple way, I chatted with all kind of people, with different genres and backgrounds, researched online, read magazine articles, anonymously introduced into virtual forums, took notes about conversations nearby and saw my surroundings and myself in a mirror, to...

Life in a Smart Phone
While returning from a pleasure trip to Mexico, my cell phone was taken out of  my luggage at the airport… nothing else was missing , except the device, with its corresponding battery charger.

Beyond New Year's resolutions

Beyond New Year's resolutions
In this New Year’s season, most of us make new and generally good resolutions: learning a language, signing up in the gym and practicing some sport, starting a diet or spending more time on truly important, rather than urgent ones, along with another list of good intentions that begin with “being more …” and ”...

APAPACHO : Duty-free product

APAPACHO : Duty-free product
Thirteen days have gone by since I came on vacations to my land of birth : Mexico. Every time I’m here, my senses seem to be intensified. The colors, shapes, flavors, textures, sounds, everything, absolutely everything, takes on a different dimension that surrounds and shakes me and for some reason – probably living away from...

Something good to say

Something good to say
This last Sunday I received from a dear old friend who I see occasionally for geographic reasons, but with whom I have regular communication by any means, a story that left me, in spite of her always characteristic positivism, astonished and sad, for it was detected in situ cancer in her left breast – fortunately...
