Reason for the silence

You all,
I'm in Pedreguer at the moment. For the past two weeks I have been on a holiday, first in London, then in Paris & Montpellier and now in eastern Spain. Will share photos later. It has been lovely and exciting.

Yesterday we went on a trekking trip to a nearby mountain. And today my left calf is on fire. I like challenging myself but I must admit I am more of an urban person than a nature person. I was the annoying one climbing with stamina, not strength, cussing at everyone and everything. Sometimes in Valencian: hostia puta. Sometimes in Chilean: conchetumadre. Anyway, the scenery was beautiful and the lunch afterwards was delicious.

The kitten of the house, Ruska, is a cute little sweetheart who blocks my respiratory system and made the host couple give me their bedroom and move to the living-room just to make my breathing at nights easier. Because breathing is quite important after all.

Til next time. Have a good week.

Nil Time, Nil Muscles

So busybusy at the moment. Moving tomorrow. I have about 100 chiquita and oké fair trade banana boxes lying around here. I got no muscles, only boxes. Help.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don't know any other way of loving

but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.
Sonnet XVII - Pablo Neruda, Chile


Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde,
te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo:
así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera,

sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres,
tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía,
tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.

Soneto XVII - Pablo Nedura, Chile

All play and no work

A Day in Tallinn, Estonia


Since in a month I am going to the southern hemisphere and working my way towards summer I am living in spring now. While shops here are offering dark-colored winter coats and fur-lined leather boots I am looking for the opposite: light jackets and flowery summer dresses. Normally I would be knitting now and preparing myself for the snow and icy streets (well nowadays, the snow maybe comes in February if even that and then I might be back already, who knows). That's how it has always been for me. After summer, it is only natural for me to start wanting to put on a big scarf and thick panty hose. And it doesn't mean I like autumn really, not to mention winter. It's just the rhythm I have gotten so used to. Even after this year's lousy summer, weather-wise. In August I felt I hadn't had the proper amount of sun and warmth I require every summer just to put up with the long and dark winter. But later I have felt okay. I don't know if it's because I'm aware that soon I'm gonna be watching the lights of Valparaíso hills after sunset and only wear shorts and a t or because September and the falling leaves just brings the sense of autumn whether you really want it or not.

The coming summer is gonna be fantastic. Little inspiration from the skullset:
