Lessons from the sea

Back in Mexico, four times in the last two years, every time a different place and a new experience. This is slowly turning into a love affair. Our boat was waiting for our group of 22 divers, this would be our place to live in the next seven days. The crew of ten people, and…

Let me walk through your home

Let me walk through your home and take my time absorbing every detail. Let me imagine the stories that happened here or the ones that will happen. The softness of the floor, the textures of the walls, everything invites me to touch your space and stay for a little longer. But it would be disturbing…

Confidence

He started crossing the street with such confidence that we couldn’t help but stop to watch him. His beautiful coat had a shiny orange, red, purple and gold tones that shone under the bright sunlight. The car coming opposite of me had to stop, I also had to stop and a third car coming down…

This wild world

Are you afraid of cheetahs? I asked my brother. Before he could answer, the pickup truck took off in the dark night, moving fast over a bumpy, rocky dirt road. We started rolling around over two or three suitcases that were on the back of the truck. I was trying to forget the many facts in…

Breakfast with the sunrise

There’s no rush to Sunday mornings, they feel relaxing and inspiring.

Not sure if she’s following me or the…

Love at first sight

And then there was Bonaire….. What lies deeper in the human soul than memories, emotions and our history?  When you leave your body and float above this planet at the same time that you are feeling the sweet comforting sand between your toes, that’s what I call absolute joy. Just returned from Bonaire a week…
