    A Different Kind Of Love..

    The other day, as I walked hand in hand with my toothy lover, I felt my heart skip a beat, and for a minute, I was able to see, contemplate a love, a love different of any kind I’ve ever seen.. I saw this couple, a young man and a young woman, both blind, with their dark...

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...
