On black friday…

instead of joining the frenzy at the stores, my cousin and I decided to go watch our favorite local band, Visions Band, for a bit of distraction from the craziness our family is going through right now.

Visions Band usually perform down in South Beach. So on our way down, instead of jumping on the highway to reach our destination faster, my cousin suggested taking the scenic route. We traveled on A1A (paralleled聽to the Atlantic Ocean) for about 25-30 miles.

Traffic was pleasant. We were feeling ‘irie’ a.k.a. extra nice. Bob Marley music was blasting through the speakers. Windows down, enjoying the cool breeze of beautiful South Florida weather. I caught a few pictures along the way.

Then I have a special treat from our favorite band! 馃檪


Here is one of my dearest and most talented of friends, Roy Robinson with Visions Band, performing a cover of Bob Marley’s聽Could You Be Loved. This video, by no means, does any justice to this man’s gift, rather it serves as a glimpse of what he is truly capable of. He is limitless!

Don’t be afraid to get outa your chair and dance! 馃槈


New phone, new cam, new features

So I finally got rid of my old phone. Since I still don’t have a reliable camera, I’m glad my new phone provides me with a pretty decent lens. Here are some photos taken with my new phone cam. They are edited through different apps.

After trimming my hair in Midtown, I stopped at the end of a street to capture the splendor.

Beach time in Hollywood.

Parked in the parking lot at work during lunch. I love rain!

Wearing my jade accessory in my favorite place, the beach.

Cloudy and rainy day at the beach in Fort Lauderdale

Waves crashing, i love it!

My favorite meal after a good run: Spinach & artichoke hummus sammich with cucumber, carrots and alfafa sprouts.

Taken with old phone but edited with new one.



Su Virtud

El tiempo me arrastro el otro dia,

Soltandome de las cadenas

Que una vez governaron mi existencia.

Me sac贸 de la cama, cobijas por el suelo.

Yo, medio dormida, abr铆 los ojos

Y se me apareci贸 la vida.

El tiempo nos present贸

Y al fin me solt贸, dejandome sola.

All铆 la vida me salud贸

Con un canto tan dulce

Que supo a flores

Apenas intentando a enderezarme,

Los pies flotaban sobre nubes que

Despojaban toda desilusi贸n y

Decepci贸n de mi ser.

De un momento a otro

Me encontr茅 en el mar

Revolcandome en la arena,

Desnuda –聽sin prejuicio alguno.

Con una libertad todav铆a empaquetada

Las olas enjuagaron la arena,

Llevandose mi pasado con ella –

La brisa besaba mi piel

Y el sol me recarg贸.

Derrepente me hall茅 en una monta帽a,

Casi alcanzando la eternidad.

Parada en su cima, respir茅 lo que nunca so帽茅.

Un aire fresco rozaba la mej铆lla de un recuerdo

Casi borroso.

Empez贸 a llover;

Y mirando hacia el cielo,

Tom茅 de su virtud.


The Leg Series (Haiku Edition)

I love taking pictures of my legs and feet – a fetish, perhaps?

Below聽are images I decided to put together after a friend suggested they would make a great photo series. I even added a haiku for each picture! Enjoy 馃檪


Drops of honeydew
And the scent of nature’s breath
Reside within flesh

Above & beyond
And with the travels of time
Summer鈥檚 in my soul

Sweet ripples extend
From the depths of the unknown
To heavenly skies

In magic city
Breeze flows in between my toes
Sun kiss at twilight



So… which is your favorite? I’d love to know!
