Unconditional

There is an absolute certainty: I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my friends. Best friends, regular friends, colorful friends, just pure empathy with someone you can trust. It doesn’t matter the time or space between occasions, it doesn’t matter the purpose of our conversation, it really doesn’t bother anyone with anything. It’s one of the most joyful and freeing experiences in life. It can be ridiculous how consuming and smiling real love can be. Especially today, on the 25th birthday of one of my true friends.

There is no deal or trade that could negotiate this kind of relationship. Love is love. group photo

Photography still fascinates me by its simplicity on showing the point of view of an individual. Here are some …

You’re trying to make the best of a situation, but there’s always this pressure in succeeding in everything you do: work, family, relationships, problems, quests. Being under pressure all the time builds up to anxiety, stress and depression. After those symptoms started their own “hate party” then bad superstition kicks in and a big black cloud appears over your karma. We’ve all been stuck before. We call it “bad luck” sometimes. An eternal emptiness. Useless. Disrespected. Corrupted. Reckless. Broke. You lose your confidence, no one seems to understand you accept a prescription or some sort of diagnosis. What puzzles me is that it really doesn’t matter what you accomplish, everyone is the same when it comes to accepting some dark hard days. Once a troublemaking phase is far gone, your brain crashes and immediately starts looking for answers, solutions, hope. There’s always a way to stop being negative. Measure your …
