It’s going to be a silent beginning.

Woke up early in the morning to bake some cakes, having fun with mixers, flours, measurement spoons and old recipe books. And then stayed lazily in bed throughout the afternoon with Murakami and Junot Diaz, my fingers moved frantically over the keypad, enthusiastically channeling what’s going on to 1,300 km away. The distant sound of the telly wiped over me like a sweet melancholia. It was as if I got transported to certain scenes of My Blueberry Nights and Two Lovers. The alarm clock,Β  floral bed-cover set, still-empty photo frames I’m about to keep some of my shots in… and it crossed my mind: that wherever I’ll be this year, I just hope you’ll be there with me.

Do you often find yourself feeling guilty about taking some time to rest? "We all need rest, not because it makes us more productive at our jobs, but because it makes us happier, healthier, more well-rounded people," wrote Homan.

While most of us think of the past as something that happens behind us and the future lies ahead of us, for the Aymara people, it's the other way around. The Aymara people see the past as something that lies ahead of us, and the future as something that lies behind us.
