In this rampant atheism that possesses me. It takes some voices and minds to seek solace, light.
Three oracles that have me talking about what they have said for some time now are Neil Gaiman, Seth Godin and Jason Silva.
Neil Gaiman, storyteller. Fantastic. Narrator of the fantastic. From their books, even their interviews are loaded with everything that can break reality. How to see the everyday with magic.
Seth Godin will say too, author, inspirational. Marketero empernido del marketing of emotions. Inexhaustible advisor. Half of what it says is a checklist for the survival of communication in the 21st century.
Jason Silva, pop philosopher. Since Shots of Awe but also Mental Games in NatGeo, is a contemporary pop culture analyst who helps unlock any conversation.
There TEDtalks That leave the head spinning. To which one often returns to hear with attention.
TEDtalks are the contemporary informational pill format. Some are viral y false. Others touch deep fibers. There are three authors who manage to touch these fibers with premises that seem obvious, but which we ignore with ease.
1. Jon Ronson. Writer, English, journalist, interested in Chronicles of limit and absurd places; Talks about how we judge others by their most perverse edges.
2. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. writer, Nigerian, who remembers how we all have a story more complex than that abstracted and diluted abstraction that we believe are stereotypes.
3. Taiye Selasi. writer, Afropolita, daughter of a Nigerian father and Ghanaian mother, born in London, raised in Boston, who lives between New York and Delhi. It comes to question where our identity comes from.
Multiple layers. Nothing is as simple as it seems.

Starting is necessary. Imperative. To continue is imminent.
It is also not letting ourselves be discouraged. Between millenials we understand each other.
This blog deals with issues of law and entertainment, but I also want to leave a space to launch some complementary ideas.
In 2016 I found 3 videos that managed to unclog many of the projects I had. These three characters I catalog as decipherers of theMillenial problem.
- Alain de Botton And its initiative in The School of Life. A YouTube channel with all the emotional education we've missed. With a splendid and hypnotic locution.
- Adam Conover And his series Adam Ruins Everything. Following the scientific proclamation that would say "It is better to know that we continue to deceive ourselves". It further alleges that Millenials do not exist... and he's right.
- Simon Sinek With the best slap planted in the cheek of a "Millenial ".
Creative projects need an immense amount of consistency; perseverance. I think a blog of these characteristics requires the same thing. Here a pair ofBonus tracks.
"That's why thanks, Youtube, for everything you give us"
