Born and raised in Costa Rica but have traveled quite a bit round the globe. I have lived in the United States, Sweden, Germany and currently reside in Denmark. I am currently poetry editor for Red Door Magazine.
I now have an official site for my art: www.pablosaborio.com
I have refused from an early age any form of formal education, and resist the idea of having a ‘brilliant career’. I prefer for the moment to embrace the vicissitudes of being.
Because ultimately we are:
Unknown currents inside a vast, incomprehensible ocean

I love your site. Keep it up !
My, oh my, you’re a messy painter, Pablo!
It makes me happy to have met your acquaintance!
I wish you the best of luck in this amazing adventure.
I wrote a piece (haiku monster) entitled, “Way Beyond Terms”.
Beyond Language is exactly what I was getting at.
I know what you mean. Uncle Tree
Thanks… it’s been nice getting your feedback and company. It’s cool to see other people aware of the “beyond-languageness” of reality.
Pablo…voy descubriendo las interesantes propuestas que planteas, ya te he dado link en mi blog…
supongo nos estaremos viendo… :)
” Nothing to fear, except fear itself “, I don’t remember to whom this quotation belongs, but you can hear it “The American Friend” , you know, a Wim Wenders’ movie of the late or the middle 70’s .
Thanks you two, your blog is the one that really kicks ***.
Keep those massive thoughts coming.
Tus poemas són magistrales.

Milan, check your email/junk folder. Wrote to you.
Hola. Ah yes the ‘bottomless’ present. Indeed.
You inspired me of your present life right now. I`m sure you are giving more life to people around the globe . Your paintings speaks a lot and it is very fullfilling to people who are lost. I hope i am right and that is my interpretation. My website is still empty but i assure you can we be friends.God Bless and i wish you the best.
Tus poemas siguen siendo para mi, magistrales.
Te admiro con creces.

You have some amazing work here. I’m glad I found you here! :)
Mi querido amigo Pablo. No sabés cuanto me alegra haberte visto en este site y conocer un poco de lo que te has convertido. Me alegra, y recuerdo con cariño, el haber compartido con vos en un pedazo de tu formación: jóvenes, felices, sin nada que perder y con mucho tiempo libre. A pesar de que hoy cuento con esposa, hijos, hipoteca… aquellos tiempos forjaron mucho de lo que hoy soy, de mi escencia y mi cosmovisión. Un abrazo Pablito.
the title of your blog reminds me of the existential state of nirvana or rather in arabic term ‘fanaa’ which basically means surrendering the self to the greater power… it may not have been your intention, yet i hope i am allowed to interpret it as such considering your words rejects the material and superficial world and strongly emerges the spiritual element of self
What fun you must have traveling and doing what you enjoy most. It’s great that you’re blogging all that goes on in life and all. Keep venturing!
awesome! so happy i found u! you should join my site i host for creative networking. its new, so be patient with the lack of activity at the moment, but there are a lot of great and talented members already! u can find the link on my contact page, its the “social muze” link :)
Queremos invitarte a participar en una página dedicada a la poesía costarricense. Podrías enviarme tu mail para explicarte un poco más?
Excellent insights, excellent expressions…..
de donde escribe pablo? a donde va?
Go on, Continua tronco, que me gusta mucho tu “trabajo” !
Prefieres que hablemos en Castellano o bien in English ?
Whatever the tongue, this Hateful of HOLLOW remains the same, ain’t it Brother ?
oh by the way , my e-mail is :
And remember the quizz : ” How many HOLES will be needed to fill the winding roads of Life ?”
Hi, I just found your blog by accident and am pleased to say that accidents can still lead to wondrous discovery. :) I also write poetry from an existentialist perspective and wanted to share some with you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I have subscribed as well. Looking forward to reading more your work.
I’m sorry that you’ve had trouble with my blog entries. I have tagged your name as the author and in my recent post cited your name.
If you still have problems ill delete those entries asap.
Do write back.
Ps: you write brilliant
I honestly love the way you desceibed yourself in your bio. That alone makes reading your work interesting. I like that you are self taught and have that, go out and get it attitude…
Thank you for doing what many are afraid to do…you appear to be called to intrepid journey, (like all of us- if we will listen) summoned by the self to go and be what you are meant to be. You explore and illuminate the world to those you come in contact with only to further enlighten and inspire others to do the same. You are the embodiment of what I think about frequently. I see a lot of myself in your work. I to have no formal education, appreciate music, art, writing poetry, searching and learning philosophy. Somehow I manage to betray my hearts desire- incarnating life through words, language, prose.
…sequestered in my pain,

*please tell us where your music comes from (sufferer- music-) sounds like Bill Evans! Sublime
Personally i will say this is inspiration to inspirations,thus you are a piece to reckon with.Very little have my minds in different times seen like this and nothing than a touch cold be worth it.
hey bro … i appreciate your work …
u brought me back …..
“Admiration for a quality or an art can be so strong that it deters us from striving to possess it. ” There are not my words but express ME. So rare to find blogs like yours :)
Cool site and you write really well i added it to faourites so will visit again
Pablo I have just discovered your site quite randomly… I was researching nihilism because I realised recently that I am a nihilist.
I fucking love your website!!! Your poems and paintings are simply amazing. I am a poet too and I just returned from a visit to your home country, Costa Rica! I was there for six months and I had a very rich and interesting experience.
So all in all I feel very lucky for having found your site. Not just lucky but inspired. As someone who likes to write poetry, paint, think and travel, I can certainly empathise with your perspective.
Is there somewhere I can buy your paintings?!!
Oh man i don’t want to sound overly ecstatic and cheerfully stupid here( coz it’s nihilism after all).
But the work demands respect…..
Really admirable writings there man
ITS SOMETHING SPECIAL
I do love your patterns of thinking, I wish that you might take a look over my own blog. I believe you will find a similar method to my thoughts.
Nan00k ha dit …: ( aquest Texte està dedicat al José-Maria Alonso GOMAR , Professor de Filosofia & Metge del Alma = Consciència Còsmica a Sant-Cugat “Centre del Mon” ) :
– Estar o ( bé ) ésser BOIG ?? ESSER ! … Només Consciència Musical del Meta-Logos ! ; Consciència lucida de la seva pròpia Bogeria , com en Leopoldo-Maria PANERO !! : “DEseo de SER PIEL-ROJA” ! … : Desig més fort que TOT , o sigui que tota la resta , Acràcia Absoluta d’ allò que ens és més intim a cadascu , l’ Universal del Inidividu … , i després l’ Infinit del NEGUIT , infinta Malencònia , Angoixa, “Morrinyo” , Spleen, Cafard …
Quan el Buit assolit està per sobre del NO-RES , (allavorans) QUÈ pot romandre i què pot esdevendre (en) la Consciència ? , vull dir enteneu-me, la Consciència aixi arrossegada pel Gòlgotha del Desert-Silenci ??!! … Què advindrà doncs ? : Angoixa metafisica del NEGUIT en front d’ un Forat Negre A-TEMPORAL …. :
Pot l’ Esser fer Boycott al “FER” , o transcendeix la Sensaciò total … per sobre tota mena de Concepte ?? :
” La Sensation est l’ Assymptôte du Concept , lorsque l’ Abstraction tend vers l’ Infini” … I tornem allavorans a la RESONÀNCIA INTERNA-INHERENT entre “Lògica Estructural” , i “Lògica Dinàmica ” !!
La Acràcia és l’ Asimptota de la dialèctica Hegeliana doncs !!
I això en el fons ja ho va sentir i fins i tot formalitzar en SPINOZA !!!! …. Bel.lesa Absoluta inextinguible de la Filosofia / Matemàtica , quin Goig d’ haver superat el forat negre del NEGUIT metafisic !

love all your works… they’re exactly my taste:) can i use ur works on my blog with your website link?:) nice to meet u by the way!
thnx 4 ur comment:) sure with your blog link pablo;)
Hello Pablo my name is Kostika Çollaku and I am composer from Greece, Thessaloniki. I want to speak with you about something. Do you mind send me an e-mail I just supscribed to your site. If you dont find my mail leave me a comment.
p.s: I nominated you for an award. :)
En un par de ocasiones llevado por el histrionismo de la sobriedad he dejado halagos de mis propias neurosis en algunas de tus lineas, gasto unas de mas para decir que ciertamente la percepción es intrasmitible y que no debí ser tan inmoral.
Me justifico pensando que en todo caso era sólo una posibilidad mas.
you know what, dude? i think we are born with poetry and art within our souls. i do not think one can be “taught” to really “feel” their *own* art. sure, we can learn all about other people, etc. – get educated; but that will not create it. i agree with what you say whole-heartedly. i’ve been daydreaming since i can remember, and that’s where art is made.
thanks disastress, i appreciate your comment
“…that nothing ever makes sense except the bottomless moment of the immediate present.”
Perhaps. I’m still finding that out myself.
interesting! i look forward to reading more of your material :)
I really like your painting ‘The Drunkards’, do you still have it? I took the liberty of reproducing it on my site http://www.alcoholfreetimes.com (About Us section) with a link to this page. Let me know if this is ok with you. Un saludo. Ben
PS “Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters – nothing really matters to me.”
No hay problema, go ahead Ben
Hello! I’ve nominated you for an award. Please check it out here: http://franticscribbles.wordpress.com/2013/08/12/thank-you-and-a-few-other-things-that-are-due/
Love your work. Keep it up!
I’d marry you.
Then I’d leave you for an older man with money.
If wishes were horses….
We’ll meet again then, as soon as we come back from our Silk Road …
Your poetry takes me deep dark beautiful empty places devoid of meaning and full of new music yet to be written. Thank you.
i found your work wandering around online looking for writers for Manniquinn Haus (http://mannequinhaus5.weebly.com/), an online journal of heartfelt linguistic weirdness. i’d love to get a piece of your writing in issue #7 if you’d like to submit something. you can email me at cassidyrioskane@gmail. thx
Wandering there. Just passed by your home. Enjoyed your tea. Thanks. Come to my cottage, have some tea.
