Thank you

Love so fulfilling, you do not have enough heart space to receive it

Love so simple, you do not need words to express it

Love so deep, you only need to be next to one another

Thank you friends and family. The only thing I need to consume is time with you.

Continuity

Can you love today what you hated yesterday?

How unpredictable and predictable can we be?

Are sudden life changes U-turns or do they reflect uncertainties you were hiding and/or problems you did not want to solve?

U-turns might exist, but so does deliberate blindness. Blindness to who you are and whom you do not want to accept to be.

Brief encounters … Lasting memories

IMG_2088

I met you once and only … for two hours. Our paths departed.

I still listen to the music I first heard with you. I saw the band playing today…for two hours.

I met you years ago… two hours…and you are still here. I don’t remember your name.

This is a tribute to all brief encounters which bring long-lasting memories.

Human Rights

Arundhati Roy “The transformation of the idea of justice into the industry of human rights”

A human right – my right as a human

Justice – what I do not have but you have whereas we should all have it

Justice is all encompassing.

Cooperations govern. They have a political project and they are winning.

We need to fight back for justice. Not just for my rights but our right for justice.

Break up

Is love a machine?

A beautiful relationship would require the skills to know when the lights need to be changed, or the cables fixed.

When it is time to slow down the machinery and enjoy.

The only problem is that even the most talented love mechanics can never anticipate when the power goes off.

Resistance

Do you resist to break yourself free or to regain respect for human values?

If you do not resist, do you accept?

Resistance is the art of asking questions, of questioning boundaries; a process of creation, against the forces of destruction.

Amor Fati

The love of everything that is going to happen – the love of risks

The trust in risking to lose everything but yourself.

“What does not kill you makes you stronger” (Nietzsche)

Us

Txoria Txori: “If I had cut off the bird’s wings, It would have been mine, It would not have flown away… But having done that, It would not have been a bird anymore and it is the bird that I loved”

You came into my world. I felt like it was through the back door but you are already part of all the rooms in my world. I have to admit you are here, there, everywhere. Admit that the doors are always open and that now, here, there, my house will never be the same because our house is wider, better.

Tomorrow, in two decades, or in a few seconds, you might open the door or break our house. But only because it became a prison or an ugly tiny space and I did not want to see this. You and I still see through our own lenses. But as long as the door is open and the house is glorious, we will see and feel together.

On change(s)

Naomi Klein argued that during a shock, we can not oppose much resistance.

After a shock, do we change?

Where do our minds and hearts land back?

Can they come back to the past reality or do they make up a new reality?

Is a shock a serie of tiny changes played in fast motion?

Impossible to provide a black and white answer…
