coffee break #20

Don’t think I’v given up coffee, now that every one around me tries to be healthier. I’m not turning vegan, nor giving up caffeine and didn’t disappear for Vipassana Meditation. Its just my battery that needed recharging. I needed some time

Winter break

Best way to end the year and start a new one. We’re taking a winter break to spend time in our magical spot, absorb some peace and quiet, bring back with us some simplicity and slower paste. We are meeting new friends, sharing good

coffee break #19

Winter is made for reading. On my sofa, plaid blanket on my knees, I feel protected. locked up in my book, shielded by imaginary world from reality, my cold fingers hug a warm cup of coffee – perfection.

Chatting a bottle

Drawing this beautifully wrapped 1865 Chilean wine the phrase conversar una botella de vino came to my mind. I loved and saved this saying the first time I heard it.  If I translate it freely it means chatting a bottle. It contains everything: the pleasure of slow
