my blitz =).

It's hard to say,
Why I couldn't go to bed today,
I called a friend,
And tears led her away.

I got no answer,
Just a small message,
Which told me,
Her watered eyes, could not speak.

In times where I feel
like everything went wrong,
In times when I dont know,
where to go, or what to do,

I close my eyes, and wonder,
Where can I press rewind,
or fast forward,
Why cant I just move on,

But then I remember,
What a wise friend once told me,

For every tear,
There is joy,

For every tear,
You should smile,

For every tear,
Our heart has felt something,

And in the very core,
of our pumping chest,
lies something beautiful,
which few have seen.

I ask you to smile my blitz,
Smile because the only way
for one to cry,
is with feeling.

You have felt something,
deep inside, and in your heart,
and it is the very essence of feeling,
that makes us beautiful.

It is feeling itself,
that made me write this,

Because it hurts
to see a blossomed rose,
in the rain,

Because it hurts
to see my lovely friend,
in pain,

Because it hurts
to know that something,
caused you great disdain.

You're lovely blitz,
don't you ever forget that.

your co p,

Learning to float

First my apologies.
Perhaps I gave y'all the idea that
it was all spit without the gears
We aint about that shit

Words can leave you salivating
But sweat builds the fucking mountains
So don't ever forget that in a heartbeat
I could carry your dreams and forget I even did

You're swimming in it, but you can't even float
The irony of words is that they hold the strength of plans
Without the gunshot
You'll never be grand.

We can all aim high but precision does the talking
It's all too simple these days
With the chatter and spread of information
We're suddenly heroes and activists

But we haven't even blinked, the AC,
It's still running. It's near silence
but its not. The inaction,
It's deafening.

Heck I've gone mute,
I can't even rhyme shit
that could emphasize the prolonged
dream of a typeface, the letters were blank.

It was always that way,
It was always silent because at some point
We stop pinching ourselves and assume
that it was deserved…

On nature's sincerity

I wish I could But I spoke nonsense I wrote it rather To speak it back to you.
The trees spoke quietly I looked from above and smiled The sun tucked away and I hoped It would spill its secrets.
The picture was rightfully painted Had I blinked, I would have missed it. Do not use sincerity It is not becoming of usage.
Learn to become And you will see the world As it was born It will smile once more. x

My Barcelona Guide

Long overdue, but having been to Barcelona a number of times, I have been wanting to write some of the secret parts of the city that I encountered, and that are worth seeing. It's worth citing that a lot of the restaurants were originally gotten from an amazing list of restaurants my doctoral advisor shared with me, and that a lot of the places I love going to were first shown to me by our program director, who knows Barcelona better than anybody I know.

Additional note: Barcelona runs on a different time schedule than other countries. Dinner at 9-10pm is very common, and people start going out around midnight (to bars). Clubs start around 2am and go until about 6am, so keep that in mind as you enjoy the city. They also have afternoon naps (siestas), so in the early afternoon, a lot of things may be closed. The summer is usually pretty packed regardless because its booming with tourists. I generally do not like crowded toursit-filled areas, but you have to experience them once. You…
