I may have eaten my weight in pastéis de nata over the past month, but I still don’t feel ready to leave Lisbon. 😭 Pic by the lovely @yulia.s.soloveva

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MYSELF 🥳🤪😂
This past year of my life has been so overwhelming, lifechanging and amazing. I’ve grown more than ever before and I’m so thankful for my close circle of friends that are always there for me, for the people I’ve met this past year, the lessons I’ve learned and the experiences I’ve had! Hoping my next year is just as amazing! I’m feeling more love today than I’ve ever felt before. I love you all ❤️🔥
Love Is Blind.. Have u ever dined in the dark? I mean pitch black… We did!!!!!! A pleasant surprise was that we were allowed to get in touch with our other senses (not sight) by first being led to play a game blindfolded (sheer fun)… I won’t give away too much to ruin the fun!
Before long we were being led away from the light and into a pitch black room by a legally blind waiter (who was friendly, spoke English, witty and accommodating) to devour a prix fixe menu (at the time of our visit we had a choice of three menus). Points to note
• Use the restroom before being led to the dining area
• No phones or reflective clothing or accessories are allowed
• A locker is provided free of cost for all valuables (phones etc) that is monitored by a camera
• Be prepared to have your palate stimulated and your other senses awakened
El amor es ciego … ¿Alguna vez has cenado en la oscuridad? Me refiero a un tono negro ... ¡Lo hicimos!
Una agradable sorpresa fue que nos permitieron estar en contacto con nuestros otros sentidos (no con la vista) al ser guiados a jugar un juego con los ojos vendados (pura diversión) ... ¡No voy a ceder demasiado para arruinar la diversión.
En poco tiempo, un camarero legalmente ciego (que era amable, hablaba inglés, ingenioso y complaciente) nos conducía lejos de la luz y nos llevaba a una habitación totalmente oscura para devorar un menú fijo (en el momento de nuestra visita, teníamos una opción) de tres menús). Puntos a tener en cuenta
• Use el baño antes de ser conducido al comedor
• No se permiten teléfonos ni ropa o accesorios reflectantes.
• Se proporciona un casillero sin costo para todos los objetos de valor (teléfonos,, etc.) que son monitoreados por una cámara.
• Prepárese para que estimulen su paladar y despierten sus otros sentidos

Across the expanse,
here, we bare our limbs bravely to the potent sun. Fat leaved trees fringe the lawn. The shade is cool and swollen. The sun cannot reach its burning fingers beneath the branches where coolness rushes in racing through her veins like quicksilver; she laughs -- delighted feeling sunlight setting the hairs of her arms alight. Sunday morning ghost hovering in sunlight, phantom limbed. fading slowly into infinity. Cold air presses against her fingertips.
Finite, she is inarguably finite.

Literally translated: a stumbling stone. Scattered throughout Berlin, a golden square that memorializes that someone who suffered greatly once lived here. “Hier wohnte”...here lived. These are no sacred memorials. In fact, it’s unfortunate to even think how many of these stumbling stones are intermittently dispersed throughout Germany. It might become almost commonplace to see them if you lived there. It can become far too easy for all of us to no longer “stumble”—just treading along, leaving shoe prints behind. But I hope we always stumble. I hope it makes your chest ache, your throat grow tight, & the pinprick of tears come, just as it does to me this very moment. Do not forget what can happen when good men do nothing. These are not nameless faces we see in pictures, they are lives lived...and lost.

Welcome to the fallout,
Welcome to resistance.
The tension is here, Tension is here.
Between who you are and who you could be.
Between how it is and how it should be.
(Dare you to move)
