A thousand and one words

  Once upon a time, there was a writer, walking in the night. Those who encountered him and paid enough attention thought he looked sad, and a little lost. The truth was that he was looking for inspiration. It had been months since the last time he had written anything that he liked. He had …

The people who lived inside a tale

    It could be anticipation, or even science fiction. It could be an episode from The Twilight Zone. If it were, it would probably be entertaining and lead to an interesting reflection.

Big Brother can’t see it all

When asked what super power they would like to have, people always find a lot of ideas. They want to fly (but come on, do you have any idea how COLD it is up there? When you could be so comfortable in a plane?), to read into other people’s minds (and destroy your ego for …

On the edge

There is a difference between going through a dangerous situation, and willingly putting ourselves into it. The success of activities such as skydiving or bungee jumping proves that danger attracts (some) people. But it can also serve artistic purposes, among others. Whether it’s for personal, political, or sociological reasons, what’s going through those artist’s minds …
