"But, I'm not angry!", Bilta shouts as he slams his coffee on the small wooden table at the cafe by the beach. I pause; I roll my eyes. "Yes", I reply as I lean back in my recliner, "clearly, you are not angry." I roll my eyes again; I turn my head to look out the bay window in the cafe; there's 12 people surfing and two people sun bathing. "So", I continue speaking as...

you´re going to make me pissed." Bilta puts the small pebble back on the ground. "Don´t throw stones when you live in a glass house", I continue speaking as I turn my head back to the man approaching us. The man puts his hand in the air and starts waving at us. "Don´t say anything", I tell Bilta as I turn my head to him, "he may be a competiting researcher. Just be nice." "What´s...

I pause; I take a sip from my styrofoam cup. "This coffee is fucking delicious!" The writer takes a sip from his canteen. "Yes, it is!", he replies as he lets out a sigh, "where did you get it from?" "We have no time for chit chat, writer", I reply as I turn my head back to the penguins, "you see how those two over there are mating and the others are looking for...

The writer pauses; he adjusts his glasses. "So what you´re saying", he replies as he leans back in the chair at the cafe by the beach, "is not to change my behavior?" "I´m not saying that, exactly", I reply as I lean back in my chair, "but take some time to understand who you are--what you do and your habits.  Your fall-back pattern--what do you do when you feel bad or when...

I pause; I sip the coffee. "We are wired for pleasure--so it makes sense that we would seek that--but, when we find it, do we let it go?" "I have no clue what you´re talking about", the writer replies as he turns to look out the window in the cafe at the beach. "I want to live a life of pleasure--that´s how my mind works.  It makes sense that I would push myself...

I pause; I think that I´m forgetting something. I clear my throat. "Yes", I tell the writer as I take a sip of coffee, "one more thing--forget all of these things and let them go." "But that sounds counter to say these things and then to not think about them?" "Well", I reply as I set down the taza, "you can´t balance on a unicycle if you are preoccupied with your technique." "Huh?" "Internalize." "What´s that mean?" "It means...

"Well", he replies as he smooths his hair back, "I want to get my good side." "Writer", I reply as I adjust the aperature on the camera, "you´re not very good looking--you don´t have a good side.  Let´s just take a picture that shows that your hole did catch a penguin. Your hole building skills are top notch--but you prob shouldn´t try to pay your bills with your face." "That´s rude." "Someone needed...

"It does if I want to keep my job", the writer responds, "I smile a lot." "Yeah--that´s kinda creepy.  I´m mostly wondering what you are thinking.  But, back to the topic, there are criteria upon which the salary range is calculated, based on a mean average in the industry.  Dorinto has a high standard of living so you´ll get a job that pays well, but after factoring in the cost of...

"I don´t know what you are talking about?", he stammers back to me as his hand starts shaking. "I can see it in your face", I reply as I take a sip from my taza and set it down on the table, "you project exactly what you are." "I project that I´m going to punch you in the face", he replies as he stands up. "And I project that you are all talk", I...

He pauses; that´s clever. "That´s your writing assignment", I continue speaking as I set down the taza. "I´m not hiding--I´m avoiding. I´m avoiding drama, anger and aggressiveness. By keeping to myself, I am able to, better, focus, on myself and what I want to do.  Besides being essential to happiness, to focus on your interests, it also will lead to more success--every action or thought not in alignment with what you want drains...
