Hagamos un juego.
Vos te quedas de este lado y disfrutamos el silencio entre los dos.
Hagamos un juego.
Vos te sentas del otro lado y yo  adivino en que rio andas,
en que planeta estas viviendo con tus ojos color cafe.
Hagamos un juego.
Vos te rendir sin pelear si quiera.
Y yo me dejo llevar entre tus sueños.


Nostalgia es como un monstruo dormido, que aparece cuando la luz te falta, en esos meses portlandeses antes de la primavera, cuando ya no puedes más de estar pasada bajo agua.  Es un placer profundo por sufrirla y de pronto puff, ya se fue a dormir.

Coffee shops in Portland, OR where to work from

I love coffee shops that feel like my grandma’s living room. The ones that have very old furniture and where people share tables. The one near my house (that does not look like my grandma’s living room) that serves very good coffee is always so full of people in the mornings. Coffee shops are the social/community place for people that don’t go to churches in the US…

air and light and time and space

“–you know, I’ve either had a family, a job,

but now

I’ve sold my house, I’ve found this

place, a large studio, you should see the space and

the light.

for the first time in my life I’m going to have

no baby, if you’re going to create

you’re going to create whether you work

16 hours a day in a coal mine


you’re going to create in a small room with 3 children

while you’re on


you’re going to create with part of your mind and your body blown


you’re going to create blind



you’re going to create with a cat crawling up your

back while

the whole city trembles in earthquake, bombardment,

flood and fire.


baby, air and light and time and space

have nothing to do with it

and don’t create anything

except maybe a longer life to find

new excuses
