Always trying to keep balanced the creative part of me, I tried and did an artistic creation that I like calling "We are all connected" in honor of a song made with scientists' phrases [1].

The main idea was to make a puzzle with a Haiku I like. The distribution of the pieces goes in concordance with the words in Hiragana. The interconnections do not have a direct relation, they help to keep the structure, that is, I first arrange the position of the pieces where I wanted them to be and then I've connected them to be aesthetically pleasing for my eyes, trying not to overload the whole creation (keeping it always simple).

As the puzzle had 20 pieces and the Haiku 17 syllables, I decided to make a Japan flag (the only two really connected pieces) on one side and the word "Haiku" in red on the other side, both a bit outside of the main structure.

You can see a more pictures of the process here: [2]

Hiragana: ふるいけやかわずとびこむみずのおと

Today is not the best day of my life, nor the worst tough..

I keep thinking about contradictions and how hard it is to scape from them. How hard it is to accept reality and to really connect with other people. How hard it is to accept that what you once thought it will be, will never be..

I wish all the people I like, could live in the same city, or at least in the same country. I wish the impossible to be possible..

Why am I here?

It was December 2007 when I last visited Barcelona.

Back then I thought/hoped my life will end up a certain way. Now I know that was just a silly thing, to try to predict the future, cause no one can.

I'm writing this on the way back from the mentioned city. This time everything was different: the people I went with, the season, the city itself, and of course, the experiences I lived there.

I'm not particularly happy to what I'm gonna find back home.. a lot of work (or maybe too little, which is worst), a very hot weather, no beaches and an uncertain and unpredictable future.

I keep thinking unconnected things: we are too many, don't tied yourself, be free, ensure your future, there's no way to do the previous one cause nothing is 100% certain, so just relax and enjoy... but what if I could ensure a 70% and still enjoy every moment? What if I could live on holidays forever? I know that's not even close to real happiness..

No one knows what the future holds.

Rest In Poetry

I'm a bit tired.. maybe more cause it is 4am, but mainly because I want to spend more time creating things than fixing problems. I want to be a creator, a free mind surrounded by life and not a jailed mind looking for oxygen. Anyway, I think I'm heading in the right direction..

I need to explore without forgetting others mistakes, knowledge must pass through generations. I know not every painting, folded metal or recycled carton is art, not every scratch means creativity. If I see crap, I want to feel free to call it crap, as I always did..

Here, a great quote from Alfred, Lord Tennyson..

I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
