Living the dream of living

Sapere aude   «Here's a sigh to those who love me, and a smile to those who hate and whatever sky's above me, here's a heart for every fate».

"There are all kinds of silences and each of them means a different thing."
Beryl Markham, West with the Night.

"Que no quiero ser tanto.
Quiero vivir en mi tierra
agrietada de manantiales cristalinos,
andar un poco más lejos que las fronteras
por la sublime añoranza del regreso.
Que no quiero ser tanto.
Quiero ser un poco de sol y un poco de noche,
quiero ser viento y calma,
tormenta, lluvia y olor de tierra mojada."
Manolo Chinato, Que no quiero ser tanto | Amor, rebeldía, libertad y sangre (2003).

Do not take yourself seriously. Travel to curious places. Arrive on time. Work with big ideas. Enjoy life. Listen to music. Watch the stars. Go have a drink. Make mistakes. Cultivate your raison d’être. Give milk to the cat. Learn to teach. Stop growing old. Keep in contact. Water plants. Help others to be happy. Create beautiful things. Smile. 
And don’t forget to… LIVE!
