Saint Rémy de Provence: Joan of Arc

I already told you about my meeting with Van Gogh in Saint Remy de Provence, but now I want to tell you about French churches, and Joan of Arc. Saint Remy de Provence is one of the oldest towns in France. The medieval style of construction with irregular walls are proof of this. I arrive […]

Saint Remy-de-Provence: Van Gogh

A kilometer away from where Saint Remy de Provence ends, an unparalleled tour of the specific landscapes painted by VanGogh begins, with physical imagery that references his work. This path leads to the Monastery of Saint Paul de Mausole, a psychiatric institution (that is still operating as such today), where Van Gogh self-interned himself right […]

On how we deal with our personal history is how we deal with the world

This year, Mother’s Day in the United States is braided with the Mexican celebration that always takes place on May 10.

A Premonition: Fragmento uno

Ideas and insights into the future are up in the air. If you listen, sometimes you are able to grab them. But more often than not, the noise around you doesn’t allow you to listen. Yet when you do, you gear towards your purpose, as abstract as it might seem. It’s easy to think and to […]

A strange world / Un mundo raro

2020 began before I even got enough time to finish 2019. Too much happened in too little time. I found myself a bit paralyzed, not sure what the best way to start the year was. It basically felt as if I went to sleep in Japan dreaming of their culture and values, and woke up […]

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 […]

On mirrors and reflections/ Espejos y reflejos

I am obsessed by mirrors. For a long time I felt as if I didn’t exist. Only mirrors made me feel real. So I started collecting them,  hoping one of them would reflect me back who I thought I was. You know? Sometimes life has a way of changing you on the inside at a […]

The Surrealism of Belonging/ El Surrealismo de Pertenecer
