There is a reason for your ending up on this site. You could have ended in any other place yet you somehow managed to end up in this little corner of the surface web.
Something brought you to me (call it as you will: fate, destiny, a car or a horse) so you might as well keep on reading a little bit more.
When I was a childish child, all I wanted to do was to escape. Probably television and internet had influenced me so much. I really thought the key to happiness was to live an artificial life. I thought so to the point that numbing the mental pain of living my life away by getting an artificial sense of accomplishing something was what I did best.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the same occured to you. It’s only natural. Maybe you even succeeded in your childish quest. You might also regret it; but don’t blame yourself entirely for it. Human behavior is more influenced by things outside of us than inside.
You live in a world which is a playground of illusion. You are in a world full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But choose not to, and you don’t have to be part of such a world.
I, for one, would rather coexist and exploit my God-given hability to think so to create own judgement.
I like questioning myself stuff of any kind. Hence you’ll find personal essays about stuff I like. That’d be regarding pretty much anything: subjects regarding business and politics, religion, foreign cultures, languages, technology, methaphisics… Pretty much anything, really. I am, in small words, a curious and random mind. I have to mark some words though: I’m responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.
The basic reason for being of this blog is to express myself and to hand my opinion and thoughts to whomever might read me.
Writing is thinking, it is digging, it is protesting, it is taking a side. It is reading something that has never been read before.
In words of the Spanish writer, Vargas Llosa, “It is a joy for me to write, no doubt. But if there were not this effort behind, I would have not written the stories that are now part of my life. It is an easement and joy — a great joy”.
I’d truly be honored if you follow along with me on my journey as I discover where life was meant to take me. May the Force be with you, my fellow reader.
