They were arguing all night. This one was especially bad. Nick and Alice were on the verge of a breakup for a while, but tonight it seemed he wanted a full stop. ‘That’s it. We are ending it.’ said Nick firmly, although his voice was trembling and did not reflect confidence of his choice. ‘It can’t be one sided decision,’ retorted Alice, walking out of the door, unwilling to accept it. ‘No more tears tonight’ she thought.
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays and times of the year. I am still not sure if Christmas beats it… Anyways, there is always something attractive in creeps in the dark, mysteries hidden in the shadows, secrets that may be unveiled. I think it is actually the main thrill and allure of the scare is to decide whether or not we want to know what's hidden, whether or not we want to see it and how far we can go to find out. Like, if you are at the graveyard would you actually want to know that afterlife exists and SEE a ghost? And if you do, then what?

Soulmates Never Die
It is all about special connection. When you hear each other in silence, you see each other, when one wants to hide. My best friend and I met on a train to a summer camp. I had a blinding hot fuchsia pink hair, and while everyone around (and present day me) thought ‘what the hell’, Maria said ‘Cool’. Since that moment it’s been eleven years we’ve known each other.
Perfect summer tunes
I believe that for the most of us music is an essential part of our lives. Creating a playlist is always a serious business, when it comes to perfect summer music, there is no time to kid around.
Colors of Isolation
A few days before the lockdown I was driving back from Utah. Shooting there was a wonderful experience as usual, however, my working days were filled with anxiety as the news about the spread of' unknown coronavirus began to escalate.
Privilege is the choice to look away
If only we started listening. Earlier. A long time ago. Every time. Every time someone told us something else besides, "I'm fine, I'm good' as an answer to 'How are you?’. If only we actually made an effort to listen what the other person had to SAY. Isn't it interesting how detached and disengaged the basic communication rules in Anglo Saxon culture are? Asking about other people's well being is a gesture of an etiquette and politeness, but no more than that. You are not supposed to have an intent to actually listen to an answer. No wonder we grew into such a deaf society. No wonder we are separated. No wonder we are falling apart.

Smooshy the Rabbit
Smooshy. We actually picked the name even before we were solid on the idea of getting a rabbit. I have been living with domestic rabbits since I was 5 years old, but my boy is another story. He was always a dog person, never even seen a rabbit in a close proximity before. So, it wasn't a surprise when I brought up a rabbit his first reaction was a sane confusion. Like 'what? those things that live in the bushes?' It took some time to explain the lifestyle, but after a year of living in LA without having a little furry friend, I couldn't wait any longer.
