TIEMPO: Los horarios nos persiguen. Los horarios hacen que recordemos que hicimos con el tiempo. Aria siempre tuvo horarios consistentes: hora de la botella, hora de cambiar el pañal, hora de dormir, hora del baño, hora la música, hora de las burbujas, hora de la lectura, hora de cantar, hora del movimiento, hora de salir a caminar...


Íbamos a museos a menudo

Carcajadas y gruñidos

Se reía a carcajadas

When I was four years old, my family moved to another place. My memories of that year are full of new and joyful experiences, people and places. I attended a new school, lived in a new house, ate different food, learned to read and write, and add and subtract in a short period. We all have transformative moments in our live; shifts in consciousness that help us see the world in a different way; that was one of those times in my life.

Not everything was enjoyable though, as I also experienced some family tragedies and the first sense of loss I can remember. Yet, I learned that we deserve to live life on our own terms and explore the world, acknowledging the frugality of our existence. It is possible that moving and traveling would create a sense of alienation and a sense of loss of community; but the knowledge and consciousness that you obtain derived from living in other ways, will forever be with you.
