The vocabulary of face-masks

Yesterday I went to the post-office. I hadn’t been ‘out’ in a while. Everyone was wearing face-masks. I made eye contact and smiled at several people like I always do, but obviously they couldn’t tell I was smiling and gave me cold stares in return. It reminded me of the isolation I felt when I lived in […]

Life in times of Coronavirus/ La vida en tiempos del COVID

Here we are, going through the same crisis almost at the same time: some countries are still living in the past, while others live in the future and we try to make sense of our present. I remember thinking for the longest time that if we had one common enemy, perhaps we would join forces. […]

On seeds an the transformation of rituals/ Las semillas y la transformación de los rituales

It’s a funny thing what we did with traditions. Let’s go back in time for a minute: traditions began as rituals. What began as a commitment to connect with nature, turned into an excuse for excessive eating and drinking. What if we were to go back to the rituals that ground us? At least for […]

Those familiar faces

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 […]

Journey through the USA: Charleston and Savannah

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 […]

On intuition / Intuición

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 […]

On transitions and creating a statement

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, […]

Trenzas poderosas

Our digital selves

This video is a cathartic experiment that explores the narcissistic relationship we’ve developed with our phones, in the hope that by being aware of it, we figure out a way to make things better, or at least produce content that brings out the best in people.

To all the versions of myself, with love

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 […]

On Fear of Success

Ideas. Projects. Dreams. We all have them, but we seldom pursue them to their fullest extent. Blame it on time. Blame it on money. Blame it on someone else. The real blame will only be on you. Perhaps you are afraid of success, like I was. This is my story.
