Belgrade, Serbia

    0
I spent two very comfortable weeks living summer, urban life in Belgrade and I must say I was sad to leave when the time came. I visited Belgrade four years ago for the first time during a very short reconnaissance trip; the type I do to sniff out a location to decide whether or not I want to return for a longer period. My return...

Unlike a quarantined zone, an exclusion zone is permanent....

Distant Love

    1
Five months before heading off on my year-long journey abroad I played a silly April fool's joke on a stranger. A joke turned into an instant undeniable connection. We were in Austin, he lived in Houston, I lived in Boston, and I was only moving even further away. Nonetheless, our only option was to give it a shot.Being in a long-distance relationship is no one's...

Why We Have a Love Hate Relationship With Social Media

    1
Why is it that we love to take pictures, yet hate pictures were taken of us? Why is it that we are quick to point out the flaws of others but fight to defend our own flaws? Why do we seek friends and likes in social media, yet, we demonize social platforms?It is because we tend to love others and hate ourselves. We either put...

The Sun

Mae Ra Moe, Thailand. 2018.  Today, once again, from a tent on a beach, at 6:42am, I watched with amazement, the sun presenting itself to the day, as each time is the first time. It reminds me of the opportunity we have as people to enter the day, brand new, with style and grace. There were hues of light blue, purple, orange, and pink that...

But looking back, it’s been an amazing two weeks. Joey visited (!!!), we went to Phuket & Phi Phi, and it was an absolute dream to travel together and explore these beautiful places. Ok, in reality...

So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. — Steve Jobs Last week was missing a post because I decided to switch to a...
