What came first?

What came first, the chicken or the egg? These vital questions I can’t but help asking, as they continue to perturb my mind. I can no longer think, I have to choose. Could it be the chicken who adapted to laying the eggs, or the egg who was so carefully placed by the Creator’s hands? I wonder, knowing inside I will never settle for a truthful answer. However, I am in dire need of an answer, and therefore, I will have to settle for both. The chicken and the egg live in harmony, together, they contribute to each other like hydrogen and oxygen, they bind together, and create the cycle of life, which we forever question. Let us stop these inquiries about which is more important, and consider that without one or the other, we have nothing. This is why we need both the chicken and the egg, we need both hydrogen and oxygen, we need both the base, and its blocks to function. This is why it does not matter which is more important, but rather that both of them are, because together they serve their purpose, together, they are important.

My Barcelona Guide

Long overdue, but having been to Barcelona a number of times, I have been wanting to write some of the secret parts of the city that I encountered, and that are worth seeing. It's worth citing that a lot of the restaurants were originally gotten from an amazing list of restaurants my doctoral advisor shared with me, and that a lot of the places I love going to were first shown to me by our program director, who knows Barcelona better than anybody I know.

Additional note: Barcelona runs on a different time schedule than other countries. Dinner at 9-10pm is very common, and people start going out around midnight (to bars). Clubs start around 2am and go until about 6am, so keep that in mind as you enjoy the city. They also have afternoon naps (siestas), so in the early afternoon, a lot of things may be closed. The summer is usually pretty packed regardless because its booming with tourists. I generally do not like crowded toursit-filled areas, but you have to experience them once. You…

On nature's sincerity

I wish I could But I spoke nonsense I wrote it rather To speak it back to you.
The trees spoke quietly I looked from above and smiled The sun tucked away and I hoped It would spill its secrets.
The picture was rightfully painted Had I blinked, I would have missed it. Do not use sincerity It is not becoming of usage.
Learn to become And you will see the world As it was born It will smile once more. x

left it as a draft, came back, its ready.

Indemnify the asinine.
Take it back.
Make a profit.
It's just pocket change.

Don't wish, keep quiet,
and make it happen.
For preemptive boasting
Is definite fragility.

Don't let them shatter
your hidden incompetence.
Lay it on the table.
Serve it cold.

Realize that honesty
poisons the fearful.
Understand that truth
will tear down that wall.

Detail with actions
Step over those who detail
For substance is rare
But taking down the producer
That's the norm in this hell.
