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 […]

TRAVEL: SPAIN ON MOTORCYCLE

The route of El Cid

 

Last year I dared to travel alone on a motorcycle for the first time, I decided to ride the so called route of El Cid (hero from the reclaimed catholic Iberian peninsula recuperated from Arab invasion), from Old Castile to Valencia, the same path that this mythical legend took […]

THE LONGEST ROAD

Choose the longest path

The longest road is the one that most do not want to undertake, often the most difficult, the most tedious and less attractive. In this day and age when everything is fast, efficient and everybody is trying to do more with less, the shortest way is premium. More than frequently what […]

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 […]

FILM: MUSTANG (2015)

No spoiler, I promise . . . it has nothing to do with the car

 

Film is central to my life, stories visually narrated and their aesthetics fill a void in me, a part of me would be less enlightened if you took movies away from me. I think some films go well […]

LESS IS MORE

less is more

Do more with less, less commitments free you up more, less is more

Clean and free, less is more, according to Mies van der Rohe

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a German architect, forged the motto LESS IS MORE, the origin of minimalism. “Less is more” means reducing to the essence. It means seeking […]

THE IMPORTANCE OF AN EMERGENCY FUND

 

First things first . . .

 

Before you begin and set your goal, before you start controlling and monitoring your expenses and find your magic number (the one that will allow you to retire), you should have some stability and security. I need that peace of mind, how about you?

 

That peace […]
