A new vision on things – or, how I stopped organizing and loved the bomb

I haven't posted in a while because lately, the whole purpose of this blog - organizing your life, having a clue about where you want to be - seemed to fade for me. I realized that, at this moment, this perspective might be doing me more harm than good. Perhaps, for me, it's time to organize ...

3 things I want to do this Holiday season

Hello my dears and Happy Holidays! As I write this, my mother is in the kitchen preparing the turkey for the Christmas dinner, there's carols on the radio and around town there are some people carrying bags with supplies to cook later today.
