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. That intelligence was internal, and only contained […]
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 […]

Talking to Rocks.
Oh, it’s so hot in here. I am glad I am moving soon to the lower regions, of the house. Today I remembered I have a blog. I had to check twice to make sure I didn’t have some pot plant dying somewhere, or had run out of meat for the vultures. I took my […]
The Advent of Some Sugar.
Greenery shies, lines stretch, like a clothesline for better days. I am happy, I don’t know why. Two songs in my playlist have the name sugar. I think I feel hopeful. I have been catching on my sleep schedule, and dropping a couple of hours in here and there, and I feel better. I am […]
Last time I traveled to Mexico City, the place seemed so much… the same. I hadn’t been to the old, tiny apartment in years. The portraits, the wood figures, the things under the bed, the same light. It was as if it had been frozen in time. There’s very few places like that still. When […]
