Take some time to be quiet and listen. Listen to your heart, what does it says? Sometimes God wants to speak to us, but we just don’t take the time to be still, to be attentive, to be humble and ask for wisdom. I have said to him, if I had the chance to see you and we could have a conversation face to face, what would you say to me? All I need is one single word. He said: BELIEVE.

Lover (lov·er)

“lover, n.

Oh, how I hated this word. 

So pretentious, like it was always being translated from the French. The tint and taint of illicit, illegitimate affections. Dictionary meaning: a person having a love affair. Impermanent. Unfamilial. Inextricably linked to sex. I have never wanted a lover. In order to have a lover, I must go back to the root of the word. For I have never wanted a lover, but I have always wanted to love and to be loved.
There is no word for the recipient of the love. There is only a word for the giver. There is the assumption that lovers come in pairs.
When I say, Be my lover, I don’t mean, Let’s have an affair. I don’t mean Sleep with me. I don’t mean, Be my secret.
I want us to go back to that root.
I want you to be the one who loves me.
I want to be the one who loves you.”  

David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary





Simply Hi

This is not really London, but rather the city of Miami, FL. We have been dealing with some “cold” weather at the sunshine state. Decided to post this random pick, to simply say Hi to my followers and random readers. I have been very busy lately, with work and currently doing a master’s degree in design & media management. But I am thrilled to say I have a cool photoshoot planned in the coming month… I will keep posting my photos with sometimes inspirational quotes that speak to the heart & soul, inspires us somehow or simply makes us think. Cheers.
