Travel, football, work…my birthday

Warsaw, 9:44 pm – Went to sleep at 3, woke up at 6.30, travelled 1.445 kms at 10.000 metres, played football, corrected papers…and now I’ll go to say hello to some people. Need to go to sleep early though. Tomorrow I have to teach at 9 am…This was my 36th birthday.

Jazz, Bossa Nova and Videotapes

What a great night I had yesterday. After having dinner with a friend and his girldfriend in a fantastic vegetarian restaurant in Paris called Le Potagere du Marais, I was walking back to my friend’s flat alone, for he had left to walk her girlfriend home. Since it was too early for me to go home (11.45 pm), I decided to wander around my favourite Parisian neighbourhood, Le Marais.

L’avventura

Tonight, I went to the BFI (British Film Institute) to watch Antonioni’s L’Avventura. I really liked it. It is about a man and a woman who start a relationship after the woman who is his lover and her friend suddenly disappears in a boat trip in the Isole Eolie, next to Sicilia. The emotions of loss, fake love, convenience, indifference are present together with the permanent questioning and doubts of the human being about his/her emotions. I am happy I went tonight to the movies.

New beginning

There is never a new beginning, but a series of transformations of your own self.

Nada de lo que pasa ocurre sin razón. A veces ésta hay que buscarla no en el pasado, pero en el futuro. En esos momentos necesitamos ser pacientes. Tenemos que esperar a que lo que venga nos dé el significado de lo que se ha ido.

New beginning

This is the first post of new log. I’m starting up again, after a very emotionally complicate and complex period. During these last 4 months, an 8-year relationship ended abruptly, I went through a series of revelations that have changed me and how I see the world, I met the person with who I had the most magical, amazing and intensive connection I’ve ever had in my life, and she then escaped.

From now on, I’m going to dedicate my energy to three projects: building structures for open government using social dynamics and network technologies through a social entreprise I co-founded very recently in Barcelona, i.e. Factoría Ciudadana (Citizens Factory), working for the extension and protection of our right to access public sector information, and, a very personal project, about what I call the emotional revolution. All the rest I currently do (i.e. teaching EU negotiations and DPhil) will be gradually abandoned. My priorities are set.

The quietness of love

So many times I could have enjoyed moments of quietness in company with the person I loved e.g. listening to music in a coffee place, holding her hands walking slowly along the Thames, La Seine or a Barcelona beach. But I was so immersed in my thoughts an anxieties that I didn’t listen to these feelings. Instead I was continuously in a rush to “experience things” that didn’t really feel me. I ignored what actually make life worth it. Why did I have to learn this so late!??
