Morning Kindness in Quarantine.
It’s 6:28 in the morning, and I can see from my window the orange washes of the sun, peaking behind the trees. I had an amazing dream, and I have that strange feeling of freshness that only days like this can conjure in me. This year has been tough, and last month was the toughest, […]
21 in the Twenty-First Century.
Chapter 0: odd ends and preparations. The day of my departure, I had awaken early, and had a big breakfast. I wouldn’t say there was anything that differentiated it from a regular day, and even if my stomach had been hollow just after the breaking of dawn, now it was so full, that there was […]
This year I am set on finishing some of my projects, but I want also to start to build an audience here. You are in for a treat. There are two stories I have been scribbling about in my notes, and I realized they can be serialized here. I will try to add a chapter […]
Another breaking point
‘Is this your bread?’ ‘Yes, but put it down.’ The Battle of The Bread It had come to our attention in the highest offices of the Council of Modest Affairs than time, a local resource measured in uncertainty, was not being properly managed, and that well, it should.

In July I traveled out of the country and had a couple of wacky adventures. In August I inexplicably couldn’t sleep, I had so much time I did nothing. September was good. I’ve planned some things for mid-November, but in the meantime I have October completely for myself. Let’s see. I don’t know why I […]
Oh, No, ‘Tis The Season!
It’s my favorite time of the year. Nothing has happened. I mean, there was a flying sausage terrorizing us, which later turned out to be a chipmunk; there was the fascinating series of romanced lucid dreams that visited me during the past weeks; there was the wet peregrination in the rain that we had to […]
I Bow No Haircuts.
I dread haircuts. I try to never get them. Once in a while, though, I forget why, and, as if possessed by sudden madness, I surrender. I wanted the sightliest of trims. I even brought a picture. The only available lady seemed impatient, yet she wanted to cut my hair. I accepted her. She saw […]
