About Me


learning how to become love in human form


Soy chilanga de corazón.................. hehe i believe i was a giraffe in a past life... if you meet me you will understand why!! =D


"In order to attempt it, we must turn off the television, close the newspaper or the magazine, and go out for a walk. But walk where? Outside or with in? It doesn't matter if it is through the streets of our city, populated with phantoms like ourselves, or through the imaginary plazas of dreams explored with eyes closed, unconscious in the cold light of dawn.

The point is to walk inward or outward among known specters or among strangers with whom we converse with every day, losing ourselves in the city or in our thoughts, touching the hand of a neighbor, questioning the child entombed within; to stop being images, to become again what we are; men and women, blood and time." Octavio Paz on how to escape a "society of spectacles" in our postmodernist culture
