March 16, 2018- Morning musing

Hello there,

so what’s going on this morning? Snow again this weekend? Well, after a work focused winter, spring seems to be following on the same tone.

And it feels like I need to flower, like a human being, have fun and a relaxed feeling of a beautiful day… poetry, love, animals, …

How is it possible to do both?

I was about to get critical of something I saw next to me and changed my mind… this is a sign I need a change of mind-set, some fun and hope that what I am doing is meaningful!

I had a conversation with a friend dating someone she found gorgeous but not so intelligent… which reminds me, where am I on that sector? Probably not to be seen… I don’t have time to plan, to think, to …

the last time I was so busy, I was still a first year student, and then somehow I regretted that.

So, if I am working a lot this time, I need to make sure I don’t let important sides of myself … without enough attention.

I also said I didn’t have time to create, and that wasn’t ok either.

Still, I learnt some things.

I learnt that for some people, creativity and connectedness are not optional.

And that my “work” has to be part of the pleasure of being alive. And conviction and readiness to move to the next level.

So either I transform what I do, or I change it.

Fiction, where are you?



March 12, 2018- When we are faced with a choice: ask a better question!

Dear March,

have you ever been faced with a choice? Like, which is the best way to go, this or that career, person, house, bicycle, toy, …

Probably, when we have a dilemma, it’s because we ask the question in the wrong terms. No way is exactly equivalent as another for us, and at the same time, they all lead to the same place.

So, when we are faced with a dilemma, I think that we ask the wrong question.

And we should probably take both options, or none.

And even better, ask another question!



March 11, 2018- Being Street Smart

Hello dear March,


are you street-smart? I was wondering about myself, being a lot around books, but it seems that the street smart quality is very important to survive in this world.

How does one develop it?

Maybe by observation and being attentive in the moment?

Any other ideas?

A friend told us she was attacked in central London, Bloomsbury area and she was stolen of her phone. A cyclist fell on her, and left. Two other men came near her, she thought they were helping, but in reality, they pushed her back as she was shocked and stole her phone.

In reality, the three were “working” together to steal from her.

She was kind of shocked that her expectation for help when she was down, was not met.

At least she was not physically hurt.

What to do to become street smart?

Looking around?

Not walking with a cell phone on our hand and talk?

Life in the big city, is full of surprises.

Any tips for street-smartness?


March 9, 2018-Being strategic instead of working too much

Hello March,

it feels as if I have worked a lot and I am not sure about the result… am I on the path to achieve my goals or not?

It’s difficult to see what is on the other side of my efforts. It has happened to me to push in the wrong direction. So, I pause a bit and ask myself. Is this it?

I have spent years of painful learning and nothing seemed to materialize out of it: in my personal, professional life. It was experience. Still valuable.

But how about some materialization also?

If what I need to do seems too much, probably I am not in the right path.

When you are in the periphery of something, the way in seems difficult. There are shortcuts, but if you don’t know about them, you might spent all your life in the labyrinth.

So, how do I get a key?

A fairy godmother or a fairy godfather, as a mentor or friend could be an example.

The other thing, would be to take a form of action which is risky, high gain high benefit and at the same time is bringing together both mine and the group’s best interests.

Instead of working too much, I need to be strategic 😉



March 8, 2018- Wonder Women’s Day

Hello March,

I copy this beautiful image from, it’s beautiful and empowering, thanks to the artist who has designed it and to the site for sharing it 🙂

We are all Wonder Women, and we should be proud about it!


March 7, 2018- How to find like-minded people

Hello March,

so, I realize doing everything by myself is not the easiest thing to do… and yet, how do we find like-minded, positive and competent people who want to go in the same direction?

Facing reality, is a big thing.

So, I could start from that.

That helps knowing in which direction we are going.


March 5, 2018- Making a Choice to be Strong

Hello March,

You arrived covered in snow, and I am just opening up reluctantly, as I am someone from the South, not used to these temperatures!

I need a Miracle, and loads of Good Luck, because clearly, the task I have seems Herculean; and I feel ready to hibernate instead of going faster and becoming more effective…

So, what is your advice?

Go and enroll to the gym?

Yes, ok.

Anything else?

Go kiss someone

Like who?

Get out in the street and kiss the first person?

Yes, why not?

Do something spontaneous and crazy

I am doing that most of the time, and then I am afraid of the consequences.

Yes but doesn’t it feel good?

It does; so I will…

What if I puss away the people around me?

You will make space for others who are closer to you

Ok, how about going to the hairdresser?

That would do…

I would like to be in touch with other creative people

Then what are you waiting for?

How about reinforcing your strengths instead of working on your weaknesses?

That’s a good point…

It could take less time…

How about getting yourself a prize?

And helping out someone else?

Thanks March, that seems helpful 🙂


February 28, 2018- Let it snow, and keep a warm heart!


Hello and farewell February,

it is so beautiful to see the snowflakes fall, and the city covered in a white, … it’s magical especially when you are not used to it and… kind of makes me feel dreamy…

So, what next dear April?

Some of my friends go through existential questions, one of them has found a job in the Netherlands and he is feeling lonely, … he is Dutch but apparently, after a period of time spent in the UK, that helps to confuse oneself…

My other friend is finishing a PhD, this is wonderful, but it needs so much concentration, and she feels as if she doesn’t have time to meet anyone, because she is single… and what is more, she doesn’t know if after all this effort she’ll find a job…

So, how do we feel at home?

And if the job is important, how do we adapt and feel ok in our new environment?

I have been too job-oriented also, and security is something that I don’t know, … yet.

What makes me continue, is a sense of purpose.

I KNOW there is something I need to create and to communicate.

This helps me continue, even if the only thing which is stable, is change 🙂

So February, let it snow!


February 26, 2018- Snowing in London, one step before spring!

Hello February,

snowing, is this a joke, or a metaphor for our lives? I am wearing winter clothes one step before Spring comes!

Snow is beautiful, but I come from the South, and right away I start thinking, oh, la la, cold, how am I going around as usual, …

On the other side, I know Spring is nearby, so I am like: ok, how long is this going to last?

Let’s be patient!

That’s not the easiest thing, especially when you don’t see the other end of the tunnel, whatever you are up to, no?

For me, if felt as if I were focused, so much focused, and then I forgot relaxing, seing my friends, having other type of fun… as is things that I overlooked because of my focus, started being out of balance…

Then what?

Just relax and smile.

It’s time for an active pause, meaning, taking care of me, having a bath with Magnesium flakes, eating well and sleeping, while taking care of the everyday staff without exagerating.

Yes, I am not perfect, I am just AWESOME, and so we are all, no matter what 😉


February 23, 2018- Looking forward to spring, High on Hope :-)

Hello February,

yes, I am close to … nearly … there. Spring is one step from the door. And you are bringing us the last winter snow apparently, in London.

So, I start with a Harland Miller painting, he has become one of my favorites in the UK, and I start the day with a lazy pace. It has been quiet a week again!

Very demanding, since I had to balance some of the things which were out of balance in the last month, during my obsession with a project…
