I’m sitting here at Starbucks. This is where I am currently physically located. The accumulation of all my life’s experience have brought me here today. Every single breath I have taken in the past, every person I have ever come into contact with, all the thoughts I’ve ever had bring me here today writing this post.
Almost a full year ago, I was walking the streets of Buenos Aires, on Jorge Luis Borges street and Santa Fe. These thoughts remind me of my trip to Iguazu Falls, where I learned more about Jorge Luis Borges. He was a writer and a poet who imparted his wisdom through his words. El Equipo (The Team) was the name we gave ourselves. We made our way to a Hostel to watch a futbol game there. On the walls were these Borges quotes.
To grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
