A prohibited item. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 101 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

A gray men in a grey suit passes through the security gate, with his suitcase. The officer on the other side lets him know that he needs to go back and put it on the band, for revision. The grayness of his face hardens and, using a deep and demanding...


Pear. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 99 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

For the last five minutes, Pear has been going through the records at this local indie store. It's only a few blocks from her apartment. The owner is staring at her from the counter. Most people coming at 8 am are only here to get a coffee and leave. -...


Rewatching GofT: the first season

1 year ago, for day 98 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

For the next few months, that's all we'll be talking about, isn't? And at some point, it could get tiring, but I doubt it since not only winter is coming, but the end of this epic series. I should say two of my best friends hook me up into it...


1984

1 year ago, for day 96 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Yesterday I finished reading 1984. I'm 32yo and had never read it (I know, I know). Still, the ending was a bit like a deja vu, as if I knew it already. Not because I saw it coming as I was reading (I didn't), there was just something familiar about...


The Otomi rag doll (1).

1 year ago, for day 94 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Lele was told that her job was to represent her city and her culture, first all around Europe and then, maybe, the world. As she was being carefully accommodated across from an elegant building near a busy street, wearing her ribbon crown, an "Otomí" pink top and white skirt, she...


Democratic spaces

1 year ago, for day 92 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

-Do you want to meet by the library? -Sure, I'll be waiting by the steps to the main entrance. -Hey, what if we just stay and check the sketches there? -Sounds fantastic. Though if it goes for too long I'll still need a coffee. -Well, there's a cafeteria right inside,...


"Bootstrapping"

1 year ago, for day 91 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Pulling yourself up, starting from scratch, building yourself up, being a self-made men... all similar ways of depicting USA's greatest value: bootstrapping. Starting from nowhere and then becoming successful using your own means, such as wits, intelligence, talent and most importantly, hard work. I am not American, I've merely coexisted...


Sunday: What happened this week?

1 year ago, for day 90 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

So as each Sunday I'm looking back at my week and acknowledging the good stuff: things I'm grateful about, things I accomplished and things I'm proud of. This was a special week solely on the fact that I was visiting the city of Oaxaca for the entire seven days and,...


Zadie Smith and the two roads to fanhood

1 year ago, for day 88 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Today I was reading Zadie Smith's essay (from her book "Feel Free") on falling deeply in love with Joni Mitchell one day out of nowhere. Actually, having been vocal about her dislike for her music for more than ten years. The more fascinating part of the essay is when she...


Jesusa y Mariano

1 year ago, for day 87 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Jesusa, según varios historiadores y religiosos, nació en la Ciudad de México. Claro, en ese entonces, era apenas una región donde grupos nómadas se habían situado (hace algunas décadas o un centenario quizá) luego toparse con las fluidas bondades del lago de Texcoco. Las palabras del mesías se extendieron por...
