An Open Heart

I met you one night,
At a party where lady
kissed her boy,
and shared her love.

Love was in the air,
As it is in our hearts,
Every day,
and every where.

And sometimes I sit there,
thinking of life's mistakes,
Loving something,
Which I already let go...

Sometimes I fear
That I wont go back,
That my past will stay there,
and that you, will be gone forever.

But that is not true love.
Every second that I close my eyes,
I don't think, I feel.
My heart is in my mind,
And you are in my heart.

At the very moment of fear,
where we follow our heart,
and risk everything,
Something beautiful happens.

My love, you are following your heart,
You are opening yourself,
To life's most beautiful gift,
The gift of love.

Don't worry about falling,
because everyone does.

I can't tell you you won't get hurt,
I can't tell you things will work out,
But I can tell you one thing,
What you are doing is right,

You are letting yourself feel,
You are becoming vulnerable,
You are becoming beautiful,
because you are following your heart,

Don't let the outcome of the trails of love
stop you from taking them in the future.
Love is rough,
and sometimes you will reach dead ends.

But the beautiful thing is
that you opened your heart,
and let yourself feel.
Remind yourself of one thing babe,

You took that risk,
and opened your heart.
And that very action,
is as beautiful as things get,

You are the diamond
amongst the many who never dared
to open their heart, in fear of love.

=] te quiero,

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…
