So, long story short: I dated a great guy for two years, ended things amicably, or somewhat amicably, lived together after the breakup, and finally ended up breaking my own heart about two years ago. Then, the pandemic arrived, and life was put on hold for about two years now, and even more severely, my dating life.

So, not long ago, I started seeing someone. It began like nothing special, just a friend, and as you know, one thing leads to another, and we’ve said some things and such. …

How does it feel to be closer than six feet?

We all know the effects of this pandemic will last for years to come. Economic crisis and mental health problems are just some of the issues that this whole situation will bring to humanity. But, as of recently, I’ve found one that might be even more severe, and god knows how long it will last: the strangeness of human touch.

We used to kiss when seeing each other, at least here in South America, a hug will never go amiss, and you could be fancy and try the two-cheek-greeting. When a friend did something well, there was always a handshake…

Oh, how I wish this was a fiction piece.

We’ve all had a tough couple of years.

The famous virus that-shall-not-be-mentioned, the multiple riots and protests; the violence here and there; the skeptics and conspiracy theorists, and the fires that once seemed like the worst was already happening.

Humanity has been through a lot. And yet, it just keep on turning.

Last week Colombian riots, this week, Israel and Palestine. Who knows what will happen next week? What other world drama, filled with chaos and death, will we see trending on social media only to fade when the next story is hot and fresh out of the oven?

Let me tell you a little story of what happened in my town many moons ago. It is a strange and tragic story that I still can’t believe at times.

Her name was Felicity, she was the prettiest woman you could ever imagine. Her hair was red like autumn; her face full of beautiful freckles that made her skin a starry night, and she always wore a smile, that made the little dimples on her face dig deep on her cheeks. Her eyes were sapphire blue, and they reminded me of someone, but I couldn’t figure out who. However, a more beautiful woman you could not have imagined.

Not only was Felicity an incredible woman, but she had a spirit that attracted millions. No man could help but be tempted…

It’s been more than a year and I’m still not over it

This is gonna be an open letter to myself, but maybe someone out there feels the same. I would like to reassure you we are not alone.

It’s been more than a year, and you still appear in my dreams, or nightmares, I must say.

It’s been more than a year, and I still feel like writing you a message whenever I see something funny that I know you would enjoy.

It’s been more than a year and my memories always bring me back to you.

It’s been more than a year and I still tear up whenever I listen…

And your childhood memories are the key to this

Before we start, let me tell you who I am to be talking about life’s purpose: I’m a certified yoga teacher, and these learnings have not only been things I’ve experienced in my own life through living abroad, changing careers, and the most magnificent heartbreak story that ended in me going to India for a month (I know, what a cliché), but they have also been things I’ve learned by reading three incredible texts: the yoga sutras, Eckhart Tolle’s Power of Now and Erich Fromm’s Escape from Freedom.

Now, let’s get to the matter of it all: you are becoming…

Society is projecting its deepest truth.

We can all see and feel how the political and social climate has been changing lately. Something we think is new and recent but has been slowly happening for many decades now.

Whether it has been planned or is just the natural course of humanity, I don’t know. But as an observer, I feel all the problems we are now facing are rooted in one thing: most of society is unhappy.

I don’t mean that poor people are unhappy because they don’t have a better car or home. I don’t mean that homosexuals are unhappy because they are not able…

Who really wants a perfect life?

New year came and went. And we all know a few people have already started on some wild resolutions.

All of them on track to make them the ‘perfect’ human. Perfect body, perfect job, perfect partner, perfect family, perfect brain, perfect house, perfect pet, perfect, perfect, perfect, pfffft!

Really? Do we want perfection in our life? Do we want to miss the opportunity of learning things we never even thought we would have?

Because let me tell you, a perfect life is a life lived following a script.

And not even your own script, but a script written by the…
