“Hay situaciones en la vida donde pequeños momentos generan grandes historias”
"There are situations in life where small moments generate big stories"
I met Diego one night in Madrid at 3am as he asked for a lighter. Like many of the encounters you do in this city, some will last the time of a question and an answer – and others will last hours into the night. What usually trigger’s it all, is that one word you said, that one sentence you said, or sometimes even that one look you gave that was inviting enough. With patience and an inviting mind, be it that you are the local or the traveller, this is how great stories usually begin. Diego will probably never know, but after that night as he cracked my back explaining to me what he had learned in massage therapy while travelling in India – I let myself cry for the first time in months amid all the changes I had just lived. A wake up call that some emotions, no matter how much we judge them, need a time and place to come out.
