“The path of someone shy of arrival at a goal
easily takes the form of a labyrinth”
Last Friday I got 33. And it was very unexpected. My weekend started with Matias in a Desert Botanical Garden for a Halloween special event. The day of my birthday started with messages from Australia, Fiji, India, and Japan, and it continued with a night of vibrations and sounds carried from Italy, Greece, Spain, and Germany. Once the morning started, the pop-ups from Uruguay, Brazil, US, and Chile completed an orchestra of manifestations of love, that I´m very grateful to them.
That night, my friend Angelo and my closest from PMFit Crossfit surprised me with a wonderful dinner, and even after we went dancing. On the morning of Saturday 23th, I became for the first time a car owner, thinking that it was also unexpected. On Sunday I reconnect with a friend and colleague I haven´t seen in more than 1 year, the now Dr. Fadok, who recently completed his Ph.D. in Science and Tech Studies.
All this love and time make me realize if, I want to get my dissertation in the next year, now is the time to put all the ideas, notions, and notes in prose. Make the papers, complete those requisites and get those interviews with the people that I have already met. The time is now to show all that work and ideas that I have been building skills on the last 4 years. Even Matias has been very direct, asking me if I writing my dissertation every day since his return from Chile two weeks ago.
But, I feel a sense of readiness that I haven´t got before. Something that makes me feel that I can articulate these ideas clearly, and put together an intentional argument, and not just intuition.
I have the strength to break my own walls in the labyrinth that I made for myself.
