My favorite Spanish word
Aunque. Even though.
Even though… we will suffer, and cry, and hurt and die, we live: We work and play and drink and celebrate and eat, sleep, and exist.
Life, even though death.
Even though… failure, disappointment, disapproval and critics, we thrive: We design and create and make and wonder and try and try and try to bring magic and good to the world.
Create, even though failure.
Even though… apathy, regret, mourning and loneliness, we go deep: Vices, and love and lust and connection and orgasms and food and obsession and passion.
Now, even though later.
This is what it means to be human.
Anque. Even though.
