    Do You Believe In Magic?

    It’s gonna be a magical day today. “I don’t suppose at your age you still believe in magic?”, you say. What is not to believe at something beautiful? You said, “Well, there is no such thing as magic. All those magician’s trick has been revealed on tv. I mean, we know that those are just tricks, illusions, right?” “And today, when you capture something beautiful on camera, they ask you if it was photoshopped, or what filter did you use?” Spot on! That, and so many other  “scientific explanations.” The problem with our world today is that people tend to overthink. We always try to find an explanation for something…

    Three Lines From Cinderella That Taught Us Something About Ourselves

    I’ve always loved reading about Cinderella. She introduced me to Prince Charming and to the concept of happily ever after. As a child, it was one of those Disney cartoons that I and my siblings would watch over and over again. We memorized all the songs by heart. We even loved Lucifer, the stepmother’s cat.   I had the opportunity to watch Cinderella with my kids.

I’ve three kids who…

    Light My Heart

    Miña La Luz.   Am I in love with you? Maybe.  Maybe not. I don’t know.   I have always been in love with the idea of love, but I am undecided whether I should fall in love right now. Because right now may not be the perfect time.  “Right now” is complicated. I wish it’s easy to uncomplicate things.   The things you do to me, they confuse me.

    My Passion and Frustrations for Cooking and for Men Who Cook

    Yesterday, I got an email from an unknown sender. The title somewhat caught my attention. I usually do not open emails from senders that I do not know. The subject was ” Explore Your Hidden Talent”. It could have been a virus but I opened it anyway. It turned out to be an app that you can share on Facebook. It was the usual question and answer, multiple choice type of application. So, I religiously answered all of it and guess what my hidden talent was?   Cooking! Yes, I could not believe it either. It said “Taste drives you. The sight of food compels you. Food is compulsory to…
