RECIPE: BREAD, BACK TO THE ROOTS

What is going on with bread in the US?

It seems that there are only two options:

a) It is very bad.

Either it is so light that when you cut it with the knife you crush it and make it thin as cardboard, or is so hard you could build a house for your […]

NEED vs. WANT

Oh! The eternal question again . . .

 

Almost like TO BE OR NOT TO BE, in this capitalist world, the main idea is that everything has to happen immediately. Your impulse turns into a NEED that is artificially created and becomes vital if it is not obtained at once. The basic needs are […]

MUSIC: NEIL YOUNG “Heart of Gold” (1972)

Pause, Listen and Live

 

I am constantly seeking music that moves me, trying to find a piece that evokes a past that may not return or an unreachable place for me. I thrive in rediscovering and recreating emotions, sometimes forgotten or buried. When I hear songs that are on my mind or when I […]

THE PHILOSOPHY OF EFFORT

 

Forget any master plan that they try to sell you to get rich overnight and, of course, stay away from the promise of get-rich-quick schemes.
