About Me

...now that I have burned down my house I can better see the sky.

Haulin' ass at a snail's pace...

...aprendí a caminar sin mapa.

"€œAs you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life."

Not so much a party person...unless we are talking tea and dumpstered croissants.

I prefer natural settings to those of concrete and steel.

A morning person...I prefer to go to bed early and rise early.

Yo soy libre porque desde aqui­ yo vuelo...

How can I be lost? I never knew where I was going.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do it. For what the world needs is people who have come alive.

"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair." -Kahlil Gibran

"A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, peaceful man." -Jiddu Krishnamurti

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." -Marcel Proust

"It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." -Jiddu Krishnamurti

"€œTo be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." -E.E. Cummings

Fuck all borders and fuck all boundaries, fuck all flags and fuck nationalities...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Piensa en esto: cuando te regalan un reloj te regalan un pequeño infierno florido, una cadena de rosas, un calabozo de aire. No te dan solamente el reloj, que los cumplas muy felices y esperamos que te dure porque es de buena marca, suizo con áncora de rubíes; no te regalan solamente ese menudo picapedrero que te atarás a la muñeca y pasearás contigo. Te regalan -no lo saben, lo terrible es que no lo saben-, te regalan un nuevo pedazo frágil y precario de ti mismo, algo que es tuyo pero no es tu cuerpo, que hay que atar a tu cuerpo con su correa como un bracito desesperado colgándose de tu muñeca. Te regalan la necesidad de darle cuerda todos los días, la obligación de darle cuerda para que siga siendo un reloj; te regalan la obsesión de atender a la hora exacta en las vitrinas de las joyerías, en el anuncio por la radio, en el servicio telefónico. Te regalan el miedo de perderlo, de que te lo roben, de que se te caiga al suelo y se rompa. Te regalan su marca, y la seguridad de que es una marca mejor que las otras, te regalan la tendencia de comparar tu reloj con los demás relojes. No te regalan un reloj, tú eres el regalado, a ti te ofrecen para el cumpleaños del reloj.

-"Preámbulo a las instrucciones para dar cuerda al reloj" by Julio Cortázar

"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."
