the random musings of a delirious mexican

Previously loreniuska.

A kind of Spanish, kind of Italian, up-rooted Mexican girl, raised in the U.S., studied in Spain, then danced around Cancun, Denmark, Switzerland, back to Spain, Cancun and living back in the U.S. now. I'm a Bahá'í, I'm married to a rocket scientist, I'm a soccer freak, an interpreter, a translator, an editor, a licensed aesthician, celiac and chef extraordinaire. I like non-alcoholic piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, I'm not into yoga (except for when it magically fixes my back pains!), and I have more than half a brain. Usually. :P

"One day he decided he was more dependent on the kindness of women than he liked so he went off to hunt wild beasts with his bare hands. But all he found was a stray dog & a couple of old pigeons & it was cold & he missed the sound of soft voices, so finally he came back & never worried about it again."

"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.”

"I love the great despisers, because they are the great adorers, and arrows of longing for the other shore... I love him who liveth in order to know... I love him who laboureth and inventeth... I love him whose soul is lavish, who wanteth no thanks and doth not give back: for he always bestoweth, and desireth not to keep for himself."

"If you would understand your own age, read the works of fiction produced in it. People in disguise speak freely."
