When did we decide that living apart was better than being together? It must have happened when we decided that work and achievements were our priorities. Not being busy seems to be so awful these days. And yet, it is well regarded to fragment ourselves. But are fragments created because of the distance, or are […]Read more
This conversation is only in Spanish. I’m still trying to figure out a way to bridge languages when it comes to videos, but I have some content only in English coming out soon. Stay tuned! Sabes? Yo pensaba que con seguir la receta biológica para una vida feliz, era suficiente, pero ya que terminé de […]Read more

It’s easy to get lost in the bling-bling that the United States portrays, because of the shopping experiences, branding, the shows… and yet, there is so much history to be explored. I spent a couple of days in South Carolina and Georgia. To my surprise, both Savannah and Charleston proved to be extremely charming towns, filled […]Read more
Not enough has been said about intuition: we are taught to not pay attention to it when we are little and our parents tell us to smile, or even love someone even when something inside us says we shouldn’t: ‘You need to be polite. She’s nice’, they say carelessly, and of course what else can […]Read more
There are two kinds of transitions: some simply ‘happen’, (for example you meet someone who eventually becomes a turning point in your life), and others are marked on a calendar, like births and weddings. This is a moment of transition for me on every level. After 33 years and an awful lot of experimentation, […]Read more
Toda historia interesante empieza en lugares obscuros. Aquí un fragmento de mi historia y el mensaje que hay atrás de la evolución que di a la trenza Tehuana que siempre he admirado. Estoy muy agradecida a Yahoo Mexico y a Bossy Productions por la realización de éste proyecto. I believe every interesting story begins somewhere […]Read more
Somewhere not too far away from here, there’s another version of me. Actually there’s more than one. We co-exists in parallel universes, and we meet for brief moments, lost in thoughts, as we look at each other in the mirror wondering what life would look like from each other’s perspective. First there’s Maya. She came […]Read more
It’s easy to say that it’s the journey that counts, not the destination, and it’s true, but how often do we forget the other crucial element: the place where the journey begins: the contrast between being born in one place versus another, in one skin, one culture, one language, one color and the impact that […]Read more
Art. Artist. Creation. Creativity.
Such imposing words. So intimidating. So distant.
And yet, we can all appreciate art as beauty, as a question.
As an emotion.
But what is it that we love so much about art? . Is it perhaps the beauty of it all? Is it that it materializes the value of an emotion. Or is it simply knowing that behind every piece there’s silence. So much silence in a world where noise is a constant. We’re starving for silence and that’s exactly what it seems that artists have. The opportunity to listen to their minds. Opportunities to create. Space. Solitude. Yes. we might just be buying the materialization of the greatest commodity of our time. Silence.
Washington DC is one of those places whose name you learn by heart since you are a kid, no matter where you were born. The impact that every decision taken here has, is beyond compare. It’s full of grandiose monuments. They all stand for beautiful ideals, and were built by people who believed in them. […]Read more
