About Me


Looking for ataraxia. "It is then in making hope practical, rather than despair convincing, that we must resume and change and extend our campaigns" Raymond Williams.


Meet me for knowing me. "Todo lo que somos es una impresión ajena, aislada de nosotros, que, sintiéndonos, nos constituimos en nuestros propios espectadores activos" Fernado Pessoa
