All These Frozen Landscapes

The past few weeks have been interesting in many a way.

When the holidays started we were devastated to know about the lack of improvements in immigration laws that are currently plaguing Canada (in short: my partner cannot remain in the country for the long run), and a certain government agent did us the kindness of letting us know a few days before Christmas. We moved on, made some plans, and have been working on the next developments that will come in the future.

That was over a month ago, and now that we are a month within the actual situation, the most frustrating thing about the entire dilemma is the weather: The uselessness of winter weather within a city.

A New Era has Begun

This is a new year we are finding ourselves in. The perfect time for new opportunities, new journeys, and new things to do.

At the beginning of every single year that passes, I always find myself with a lot of ideas of things to do and not a lot of motivation to do them in the end. This year, however, I have found that I have more things thatn I would have imagined I would ever hve to make some changes. Motivation you may call it: These are thigngs that have been changing me as a professional and as an individual for the past year and these are things that will be motivating me to do more things with my time.

Your true self

Something new

Your true self. Something that should be easier said than done: And that is quite simply to look the way we feel and the way we are.

For the past few years I have taken much comfort in the simplicity of the clothes that I wear, which is mostly to say that I never really cared about how I looked as long as I felt comfortable, which is something that only started to change little over a year ago, when I started buying new and better clothes for the first time in my life. Building an image to represent myself was much easier than I would have imagined as it only took a few months to build a wardrobe that I truly liked and that allowed me to comfortably dress throughout an entire week. These clothes dictated the way other people saw.me and shaped their perception of myself.

Winter comes

I see nothing

This year has been quite an accomplishment as far as my physical condition goes: Biked something close to 3000 kilometers throughout the entire year and managed to stay in shape for the greatest part… which was quite the accomplishment after I managed to damage one of my knees at the end of last year and spent the best part of Winter sitting on my rear doing nothing and regretting the decisions that lead me towards the injury in the first place.

Fortunately a decision was made to work out as much as possible during the Summer, and with the introduction of fixed gear riding into my life, my condition and strength greatly improved… that is until the weather started being not so reasonable and cycling was abandoned in order to make use of public transportation.

From the void to the light

Night rides

There are things that can be seen from quite the distance – things that one can prepare for – that usually have their own type of consequence and that offer a special type of result. In my case, something has happened since the last time that something was written in this blog that forever changed everything that will come afterwards.

Simply put, I found something that truly inspires me and something that makes me want more from the world and from myself at all times.
