Lately, I’ve been comparing my ideas to the ones I had 10 years ago and understanding why did I have them back then and why have they changed over the years. More specifically, I was thinking about the homeless: while growing up, I was taught to dislike if not hate the homeless, because they were not working. What? That’s it? Just because they were not working? They hadn’t done anything wrong to me or to…"About the homeless"
Today I found, in my local currency, the equivalent to 20 dollars, and the first thing that came to my mind was: One free day! As that’s what I usually have to pay to live on this planet for one day, including rent and food. so when I found it, I was so grateful, because this day was for free. I had been exempted to pay existence tax for this day, so I could just relax…"One free day"
This story starts in the fall of 2005, I had just moved from Rosario, to Buenos Aires and had to start supporting myself for the very first time. Thought it would be easy. It wasn’t. Of course. A month down the road, I had somehow managed to find a job but had miscalculated the remaining time before getting my first salary, so I didn’t have enough money to buy some food until I get paid and…"I'm a believer!"

I have recently come to terms with the fact that its ok to answer “nothing” to the question “what do you do”. Most of my life everyone around me said: “Bruno, you have to do something, you have to be someone, you have to do this and that, you have to be this and that.” You are what you do, they said. Our jobs make us proud, gives us honor, makes us decent people, if…"Nothing"
Everyone’s talking about SOPA now! Let’s analyze this for 5 minutes.. if I steal your car, then you don’t have a car anymore, if I copy your car, then you still have your car and I have a car also. So how can copy something be made illegal? It seems we have redefined the word stealing to fit the economic interests of the 1% up there. They used to burn books now they close websites.…"SOPA"
Its hard to describe with words what i felt this morning at the clinic when one of my patients, after i finished patching him up, stood up, put his hand on my shoulder, looked at me in the eyes and said: “thanks for looking after me, and the other patients out there, you guys are doing a great job” he said that even though, i knew, he was in pain, and had been bleeding out…"saying thank you (before editing)"
Free, clean, renewable, unlimited energy should our main objective right now, not just for the environment, for our health and for the economy, but for our inner peace and relaxation also. Imagine how silent our cities will be, with all the cars hovering smoothly. Imagine all the sounds we are missing, from the birds and animals we haven’t exterminated yet. From the wind and trees, the rain and the rivers. Imagine silence. Last time I…"Ideas 3: Energy"
Some months ago, I set up as a top priority in my life to learn to be objective and always consider the big picture, instead of my personal choices or preferences. The bigger picture being, the long-term conservation, survival and well being of every person on this planet, the planet itself and other living beings on it. And for that, I had some choices to make, decisions to take. 1: understanding: myself, other people,…"Ideas 2: Justice"
