Damnatio Memoriae - A Tale of Love and Loss .... and Passion.


Life is hard at the moment.

How many of us have questioned: “Is this the life we really want to live?”
Instead of numbing ourselves, how about we let passion guide us?

A recent trip to Cuba opened my eyes.

The buildings in Havana allude to the decay of its civilization, like a metaphor for the burden her people bear. But to let ruin one part of your soul is to let another shine brighter to compensate.
The Cuban people have a richness of spirit that belies hardship—a contrast played out in the daily choice of life over death - richness over decay.
