TOWARDS THE SURGERY ROOM

When I’m writing a text I usually have a strong idea in mind from which I develop the rest, as a cook stretching pizza dough (and here I go again making cooking metaphors…). The idea can be something clearer, like a sentence. When that’s the case, I work building up what comes before and after the sentence I have in mind, as a mountain I climb up and then down....

FRYING ONIONS

Chop the onion into small cubes. The best way to do it, in my opinion, is to start by cutting it in half, from the part that has some “hair” to the other extreme. Face both halves down on the cutting board or whatever surface you are cutting it. Then slice them. It doesn’t really matter the direction at this point, but I personally prefer to keep cutting in the...

But this topic...

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

It’s written on t-shirts. It’s sung and mentioned in stories. It’s not a new couple of words I hadn’t seen put together many times before. And yet, it just crushed me the other day when I saw it somewhere… Or heard… I can’t remember exactly, but I do remember the waves of thoughts it caused in my head as if a plane had crashed in still waters. I think...

He Led Me To The Desert

He led me to the desert to be tempted He called me into the fire to be tested For under the heat of the sun I sweat my sins away And through fire I am purified He led me to the desert to overcome He called me into the fire to be renewed For in my desperate thirst I seek Him desperately And fire consumes the old oil for the new one to be poured He led me to the...
