Throwback to mine and Aría’s second trip to the CIA Fall Show, a couple of weeks ago. It is really hard to look at pictures and videos and not think about what looks off, what I could have done better. But this one really made me think about how much my relationship with her evolved since last year. A horse is not a pet. I technically own her, but she has her own agenda. She tölts when I ask, but she’s not doing it to please me. She is a mighty beast, and I feel lucky to have had  a such a  beautiful moment with her, as the dust embraces the both of us in a sort of glow. I see that glow as a metaphor of the mutual respect and trust we are building, and will keep us together. I love riding because when I ride I am a better version of myself. In this pic, my horse shows the same pride and intensity I see in myself. Or maybe it’s the other way around, she just decides to do her thing, and I shine along. ☺️ Special thanks to the people who helped us get there, physically and emotionally: @paradosso  and @invaderlala (and Heidi Benson for taking the pic!) #aríafrásilvermaple #ciaopenfallshow #flyingcranch #horsesoficeland #tölt

This is me and my best friend on the Istanbul ferry, 2008. So much happened since then, and yet I spent 3 hours on the phone with this one today, because we never grew an inch apart despite living in different continents. When you meet someone special, it's forever. #blessed #absentfriends #roadtrip #9yearsago #neverchanged

My career in tech told by corporate t-shirts. Not to brag, but when I was in charge of branding swag was better.

The Runnymede Sculpture Garden is probably the most beautiful place I've visited in all San Francisco Bay Area. And definitely the best kept secret.
