Full Moon #1

Today is one of two days that the month of August will have a full moon. Luckily, you all get to have me everyday… get it? a-moon-full?

(Ahem)… OK, so that was lame.

Anyhow, the full moon greeted me on this first of august with open arms and warm LOVE. And that makes me feel HAPPY inside and out!

Enjoy its magnificence ! 🙂

*I suggest clicking on the photos individually to appreciate them better.


(Reyes) in Spanish

… means Kings in English. It’s the only word I can make out from this wall. I took this photo one Sunday afternoon in Miami, Wynwood to be exact – right in the Miami Design District where all the streets and walls are painted with different kinds of art work. The area is filled with hipster bars, great restaurants, and a plethora of art museums.

I keep telling myself that I will go back just to take lots of pictures, but I need a real camera, which by the way is on its way in the mail! Right now I only use my Blackberry Bold 9700, and its nearing its death. It’s on life support. The letter Q is missing, the top is cracking in half, and I can’t use the phone unless I have earphones plugged in. But hey, I’m still able to communicate efficiently.

So I purchased this little video camera from Groupon for $40 – it’s worth $130. I’m sure it’s not of the best quality, but I thought it was super cool that I could take it under water! And I love the beach, so I will definitely put it to good use.

Soon, I will be posting more photos of The Design District. It’s really a great area.


In lavender essence…

He tasted like a summer night

Under a bright moon,

Sublime in nature;

An overflow of thoughts

Rippled to the perimeter of his mind.

Bloodshot – his eyes heard all

That mine could not see.

Symbolism expanded in my space

As it dwelled in his.

Shapes and objects in our cocoon

Filled with colors and textures –

Painted Ladies Mating

It soon became apparent that

Our realities were measured

By the intensity with which

Our convictions were expressed.

He’s shifted; I’m immune.

In his trajectory I find solitude.

He yearns for me; I give my all.

Still, alone I walk.

But it’s perfect in its existence.

With the stillness of our hearts

We succumb, but only momentarily.

From passion we’ve come this far,

Ever so enthralled with love.


Do you see what I see?

On a Sunday evening, driving back from the beach, I spotted this remarkable shape of a cloud. The lighting was perfect, creating a silhouette beneath the highlighted object in the sky.

I immediately recognized it for what I’m sure it had to be: A creature representing luck in many cultures, a creature symbolizing a God in some eastern religions/ideologies, but most importantly, a beautiful animal that can express sympathy for its circle of fam/friends and carries an exceptional memory.

What do you see? Tilt your head if you have to! 😉
