Illustrations and short stories by Dario Garcia.
The world is full of interesting distractions.
Make this one of them.
Here are the most recent stories. Click here for a full listing.
Stories about the little things we take for granted in life, work, and relationships, inspired by imagination and my own meandering experience. Any resemblance to actual persons/events is likely intentional.
"TAKE WHATEVER DEVICE YOU'RE READING THIS ON, AND
SHOOT A BULLET THROUGH IT. SET IT ON FIRE, PUT IT IN A BUCKET OF CEMENT, SAIL TO THE DEEPEST PLACE YOU KNOW, AND SINK IT. THEN SAIL ON, PREFERABLY SOMEWHERE WITH NO WI-FI."
Ok, so it's not for everyone. Maybe not even for most people. But some of it isn't that bad. I can do better. And you can help me.
I collect people's comments, good and bad, real and imaginary.

PLEASED TO MEET YOU - I'M DARIO
I hit all the success milestones. Lived fast. And got really, really sick.
I had to make drastic changes. Turn my life around.
I returned to my passion for travel, books and writing. I discovered the importance of standing still, and noticing the little things, through the five senses, not a mobile phone.
I haven't looked back.
