Dear friend,

I was writing the name of this post and I thought about a passage from a book I’ve read last week.
And I haven’t been able to shake it.
The words ring in my ears. As if they were spoken from my own lips.
They remind me of you. Of us.
Of our friendship.
Of how we are in the world together.
Of all the ways I believe we were destined to be friends.
Like carbon copies of each other.
From another mother/father.

The passage also reminds me of what I wish for the world.
To truly be able to live within ourselves.
Without numbing. Without distraction.
With peace. With clarity.

Thank you my friend.
For daring me to live bolder. To dream bigger.
To open up to my sorrow and pain. To rise above.
For holding me accountable. For seeing me as I really am.
For loving me because of my silly quirks. And for standing with me proudly, when I fall.
For this and so many reasons more, I am honored to call you my friend.
Honored. Blessed. Grateful.

  1. Dear Mariano,
    Your pictures are great as always. I really love this outfit,as Vivienne Westwood is one of my favourite designers (I actually got a V.W.’s shirt in the same colours,LOL).
    Can I ask you where is that passage you’ve written from? It’s very beautiful and moving! It’s true that if one has such a friend,they’re blessed.
    All the best,

  2. I really love this outfit, but what about the shirt? Where can i find this shirt?

    Would really appreciate an answer! :-D

    Have a great day!

  3. Hi,

    I’ve found your blog by accident, but must admit – your style and outfits are outstanding.
    One question though – what brand of watch you’re wearing here?

    All the best!
