The Universe is blessing us tonight, is raining again.

Completed the MBA tonight, I feel somehow elated, somehow the same, somehow different trying to conciliate how I imagened this moment to be when It was only a poor kid's dream and now that's a humbled man´s reality.

Interlude:Lucky B*st*rd...:)

Interlude: We just could had wait for a taxi you know...Afraid of the comfort of strangers?...Hitching a ride on an unknown person's car?...Earth is full of good people, like seeks like.

The vision of time is broad, but when you pass through it, time becomes a narrow door.

Interlude: Something just doesn't ring, a blog with only one entry setup overnight?...I noticed...From where in the world you visited the site?...France, disguised as a web spider.

RT @Unknown Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side because there is more manure there...

@Work, wondering where's everybody.

Interlude:It's beautiful because you are inside, no outside, cold and wet, waiting for public transportation in order to get to work...Let's go for a walk...In the rain...Sure, why not.

What a beautiful rainstorm...

Witching hour rain over the city.

Waking up.

Watching Aronofsky's The Fountain for the Nth time. Not many films can blow your mind and break your heart at the same time.

RT @Calvino Seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of the inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.

Waking up, 3:00am in the morning. The city is silent, the night is cold, Leslie Nielsen is dead and I'm reading Whitman again.

Sunday, November 28, 2010

RT @Whitman I celebrate myself to celebrate every man and every woman alive...

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Deciding between eating or watching a movie...

Interlude: Mina Harker, Quatermain and Fanny Hill...Noooooo.

Waking up from a 5 minutes nap that lasted 4 hours.

My guest just asked me to lend her one of my Coehlo's books! Books must be freed, but it certainly hurts parting ways with them.

change your facebook profile picture, by that of a cartoon of your childrenhood and invite your friends to do the same. The sense of play? See no more, until Monday, a human face on facebook but an invasion of memories (FOR FIGHTING ... ...... THE CHILD VIOLENCE! FOR A GOOD CAUSE) Feel like?

Having Couchsurfers staying over this weekend, two sisters from Israel. Wondering what sort of underground tour of the city I can prepare for them =)

Chores, chores, chores...

Interlude: Weird dream, Did we just had tea with Cthulhu?...what a naughty tentacled being...If dreams are the mind defragmenting itself I wonder what's going trough ours.

RT @IrisMurdoch "Falling out of love is one of the great human experiences; you seem to see the world with newly awakened eyes."

Note-to-Self: Thanksgiving dinner with Mayra and Teddy. 7:00pm.

True nobility is in being superior to your previous self.

Interlude:I hadn't dance salsa in aeons, yet...You enjoyed it, we cared about our dancing partners, usually we don't, so we don't dance, dance is a personal thing, you dance with persons, not objects.

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

One more class and done with the MBA, next milestone:A Ph.D in Finance.

Interlude: Worst case scenario?...Loss of hearing...I'm too tired...If you can gulp a six pack of red bull to work overnight you can do the same to go to a clinic tonight.

Interlude: I know that smile, who's the poor soul?....is just a smile...¡Lo mismo que el fuego fatuo, lo mismito es el queré! ¡Malhaya los ojos negros que le alcanzaron a ver!...¡Malhaya el corazón triste que en mí llama quiso arder!.

FB RT @Monoceros I had never minded being alone, I always had known there were others like me in the world, and we need no more than that for company.

Interlude: Pissed off?...No...You walked six blocks without breaking a sweat...excess of creatine phosphate in my system maybe...really?

Why do I plan lifetimes that include you?

Monday, November 22, 2010


Interlude: You remind me of Nerval's poetry...You didn't read Nerval until adulthood way after the split...

Interlude:Summoning images of twisted metal, mangled flesh and fireballs is not a right response to a taxi driver not stoping...But certainly relieves the stress.

Interlude: Corneal abrasion...No late reading for a while...Wordsworth in 1798...A simple product of the common day.

One could justify one distorstions on being unfaithful, unworthy, unrighteous, unmerciful, unreachable, unteachable, unwilling, undesirable, unwise, undone, unbroken, unmended, uneasy, unapproachable, unemotional, unexceptional, undecided, unqualified, unfair, unfit, but never on being unloved.

Sunday, November 21, 2010


Interlude:Interesting profile, aren't those words mutually exclusive?...Guess one is true and the other imaginary.

Saturday, November 20, 2010

Watching the rain fall, the noise of tires on the wet asphalt, the ebb of improvised creeks, the gloomy quality of the remaining sunlight, the unseen links to all past and future memories I had and I'll have of moments like these.

@Home, errands queueing up.

Interlude:Does everyone in this town is after a relationship?!!!...Is the time of the year, they'll be back to normal on january.

Waking up

E I need a pickup. @Rasputin.

Interlude: You were right, mind is exhausted...I warned you, we really need to get back this body home before it shutdowns in public...Kidding, I can barely type...E I need a pickup.

Note-to-Self: Humans, exceptionally those in the category of prime companions seem to regard one's forgetting their birthday as a capital offense. *cough*Oops!*cough*

Interlude:So, is not a neighbour...Not technically...How you knew she'll share the cab?...I didn't, It was a test.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Interlude:Isn't written somewhere that neighbours are off limits?...I was merely enjoying the view...Certainly both were.

Interlude: Smoking cigars, drinking martinis, and eating steak...And lots of inconsequental sport...Lots of it...I miss the good non-healthy old days.

Life has its way of bringing us into contact with people who challenge us with their differences.


Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Hi, I think I'm suppossed to meet you tonight

Interlude:It was AWESOME!!...That should explain the irrational urge to go there tonight...Second sight, a summoning, coincidence, serendipity, synchronicity, choose your poison.

Interlude: What I did different this time?....Magritte, 1928...The False mirror.

Being paranoid was a sensible and well-adjusted reaction to life in mid-20th century earth...

In the Beginning It was a nice day.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010


Interlude:What?...Just thinking, mom and dad under the same roof since what? Childhood?...If you are implying I can't handle the emotional storm...I'm just saying.

Quite an existential argument for one that doubts itself to be real...

Interlude:It's time, you know the rules, back to simulation two...What's different this time? Aren't you curious?...Curiosity killed the cat...Not in all the simulations...A theory I see no validity on testing tonight Dear.

Interlude: So if we extend our lifetimes to thirty or forty centuries, using a car becomes an existential threat...way to justify not owning one.

Ken's underground tour of pty city about to end...

Bar hoping with a visiting friend from the San Jose "Potreros"...La luna

Got the iPad camera kit! Works like a charm!

Interlude:So what are we testing today? How much water our clothes can hold after an unexpected rainstorm or how long it takes to get the flu afterwards?...How long it takes my body heat to dry our wet clothes maybe?.

Note-to-Self: Don't experiment with the only brain you have.

Interlude: It's happening again...Probably a transient...It's been 34 hours...Be thankful it wasn't a shutdown of our vision this time...or worse...or worse.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

RT @Murakami If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.

Interlude: In this world there're people that likes to know train schedules or build boats using toothpicks, is rare then.that at least one person wants to understand you?...Like a hobby?...Like sympathy or love.

Gorecki is dead?!! The Universe gives with one hand and takes with the other.

Interlude:We live in an age of mirrors...Mirrors have their own perils...As long as you keep me on the right side of the looking glass.

Interlude:20 prospects in the last month and you still undecided...I don't see the need to add more companions...Self-observation killed Narcissus you know.

Ubi sunt?

FB RT @BernardusCarnotensis Nos esse quasi nanos, gigantium humeris insidentes, ut possimus plura eis et remotiora videre, non utique proprii visus acumine, aut eminentia corporis, sed quia in altum subvenimur et extollimur magnitudine gigantea

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

Interlude: Beware the mind, it play tricks according to its own aims, switching what is not with what it is...Beware the heart, it play tricks according to its own aims, switching what it is with what it is not.

RT @9InchNails
You can have my isolation
You can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything...
I wanna...

Help me
I've got no soul to sell
help me
The only thing that works for me
help me get away from myself
I wanna...


RT @FellowCouchSurfer It seems that the poorer one is, the more friendly and hospitable they are. But the more wealthier one is, there is a tendency to seek more privacy.

A willing prey would bore you in the end...

Godspeed Dino De Laurentiis...

RT @MonicaPalm Según Vallarino, las palabras de Martinelli fueron sacadas “de contexto”. Ahora, cada vez que alguien los entreviste, hay que preguntarles dentro de qué contexto están contestando.

Sorting out my dead-tree books, a filled bookcase is far more beautiful than the unsuspectful Sd card that holds my entire library. Media servers should include an option to select and stream books too.


Sunny day @Panama City

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Interlude:In principio...creavit Ken...Caelum et terram.

The gods do not limit men. Men limit men.

High-energy liquid extracted from barrier roots of Ecaz. Commonly used by Mentats who claim it amplifies mental powers. Users develop deep ruby stains on mouth and lips.

Intermission:What a sudden change of mood...Fits the pattern...Sadly...Hope he can learn to respect it before is too late.

Panama's rising rancor: One Nation, Divisible By Politics...

Interlude: Blood! when in heaven I cut myself?...Sweet endorphins.

Kids outside the Don Bosco school are "protesting" against violence...A fellow student was killed by another minor, just to get the kid's blackberry...We are not in Kansas anymore

Monday, November 08, 2010

RT @Pooh via @ChristopherRobin Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Note-to-Self: Deadline to deliver paper on Panama's Afro-descendant communities set to December 31th.

Morning is cold...Miss my bed.

Waking up...

Saturday, November 06, 2010

Interlude:Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away...How can I stop believing without going insane?...Insanity my dear, sometimes is the appropriate response to reality.

Can't believe iTunes is still backing up my iPad!! as if I need another excuse to avoid doing home chores (They are encoded by place and context on the iPad's ToDo app)...Preparing accordion potatoes and homemade hamburguers for dinner.

Interlude: *sighs* when dance used to be about expression...It can't get worse than this...Never underestimate human naiveness.

Wondering why iTunes takes so long to sync...

Interlude: You are so dead...Way to explain the uncanny resemblance isn't?.

Waking up

Interlude: Do you ever get a no for an answer?...No.

Interlude:It seems we found a body double...The resemblance is amazing...Shall we?...Indulge me.

Friday, November 05, 2010

Waking up...

Wondering who else is tagging books according to mood or weather.

Interlude: Sunny day, guess I can kiss goodbye reading Murakami's today...I'll bet if we start reading the weather would follow.

The age of automated arguments are upon us...

Thursday, November 04, 2010

My wine is too strong, my dear, to drink it often...

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Interlude: There's a Kartell store across the street...I know, life in plastic...Is fantastic...and kitschy.

Rains on an empty city
Unseen a dandelion drifts

I don’t miss you, I miss us.

My hands are tied behind my back,
and I'm weakened by, your slow attack,
you take me in, then change your mind again.


I've been to all the familiar places
I've been running like a sentence
Never begun
I've been looking for a way to let you know
I got nothing left to fill the spaces
I got nothing but a center coming undone
I've been doing circles and it shows


It's like somebody took my place
I ain't even playing my own game
The rules have changed well I didn't know
There are things in my life I can't control
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that


Lights black
Heads bang
You're my drug
We live it
You're drunk, you need it
Real love, I'll give it

Interlude: Pissed off?..It's so obvious?...If hatred could turn into a firestorm, one fourth of earth´s surface would be scorched by now.

Work it harder...
do it faster...
more than ever, our work is never over.

Monday, November 01, 2010


Interlude: Do you realize we'd been going out with this one for two weeks...It was supposed to be a one night affair, I didn't even care to memorize a name...Yeah I know, it's embarrasing.
