More of Italy!

[Currently listening to Damien Rice & Norah Jones]

I am back from New Orleans and I must say that I am…tired. I was suffering from the 5-6 hour difference from Italy and that jet lag is now accompanied by the hustle and bustle of this past weekend. Before I get to New Orleans though, I thought I would let you all see some more of my favorite pictures from Italy. It has been a week since my trip and I miss it more than anything; the smell of fresh pizza, the character of the people and most of all…frolicking around thousand year old ruins. I’ll go back one day! Enjoy.

Second Chances

Second Chances

I lost my Safe Haven book by Nicholas Sparks, But luckily Miss Maria Aurora Emilia (MAE) Yoinco found it at the hallway. She is really a gift from heaven.

Second Chances are everywhere, free, if you just allow it to enter your vision. -G

Madrid Day 3: Segovia by Day, Madrid by Night

convergent journey


Segovia! A quaint walled city thirty minutes from Madrid by the high-speed AVE train, Segovia is famous for the Roman aqueduct that marks the entrance to the city. It’s made without mortar—entirely a feat of engineering. So impressive.

The city itself is charming as well, and what started out as a cloudy day got even better once the sun came out. Segovia is near the mountains, which made it a fair handful of degrees colder than Madrid, and the sun provided precious warmth.

 
 
With a few stops along the way for lunch, postres and browsing shops with mudéjar style crafts, tiles and plates, we walked to the opposite side of the city to see the Alcázar. The word derives from al-qasr, the Arabic word for castle. On the way to Segovia, I learned from a podcast that back in the days of Moorish rule and…

Rhythm of the City

Overexposed + Underdeveloped

If you know me at all, you know I love the city streets.  The noise is soothing to me.  I find myself there again and again and again.  I see myself reflected on the faces of the people I meet.  I wander the back alleys and the garage rooftops.  I watch and listen.

I particularly love being downtown in the morning as it comes alive.  A harmony of sights and sounds unfolds.  I watch the street sweepers.  I hear snippets of conversation as people pass by.  I smell coffee brewing at my favorite local cafe.  Camera in hand, I walk on, capturing the rhythm of my city.

Would you share with me the rhythm of your city in the morning?

Good vibes had run away.

Out of the usual self, quite somber, and laugh hormone’s timid to evade. In layman’s term, we, psychology students, call it Flat & Blunted. This ain’t me. And I do not know why. Much has been said for an emotionless damsel at this time. All I know is that I miss

March 23 is National Puppy Day!  This unholiday is the perfect day to admire the ephemeral cuteness of puppies, and by admire I mean click through online photo galleries.  Here are a few puppy pictures (with a gallery link in the caption) to get you started:

Here is my own contribution, a pic of my spaniel when she was 4 months old:
