Words of Encouragement
The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone - that is the secret of invention: be alone, that is when ideas are born. - Nikola Tesla

A little on the Lot
I'm Elke Lopez and welcome to my Lot. As of late, the noise outside the confines of our intimate lives has been noisier than ever. I hope the Lopez Lot will be a quiet place to help you think, unwind and retreat away from it all. Even if for just a few minutes before having to get back to the many lots of your own day.

Pick of the Month
In hopes to inspire, challenge, uplift, and comfort
This week I visited the coolest bookstore in NYC called Kinokuniya Books. If you haven't had the pleasure, you need to make it part of your next trip there. It's more than just books. It's an experience! During this one visit I finally picked up Rupi Kaur's Milk and Honey and although I'm only one chapter in, it has been painfully beautiful. 'Milk and honey' is a collection of poetry about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. Each page, each poem, each line tells of the most bitter moments in life and somehow, by some miracle finds sweetness despite the pain. Talk about the ability to find the silver lining.
