I wanna fly away

LATE NITE THINKING

Final tests of Third year are coming up on monday and tuesday. I have so much crammed into my head, from every ailment known to man and its treatment [and yet I still find time for some existential thinking].

Thinking about life and how people age and how people change is something I frequently think about. I always wonder how old people were when they were younger. When I see older people walking around I try to imagine, what did they do for fun? What kind of people were they? Was that sweet old granny, always like that? Things of that nature always pop in my head. I wonder if these people look at their lives, once they near the end of their journey, and reflect on what was or what could have been.

Life is about the journey and its all about the people you meet. The lives you touch and those that touch your life. We always seem to be so busy, living in the moment or focusing on whats next. I find myself drawn to the past, always eager to learn the back story,the steps in between the present and the very beginning.

All I want is you…


this ish is smooth. I am definitely feeling this.

Bailar = To dance


Love this friggin song. Its been on repeat all day.

ok… back to the books

How about that…

Forbes is good for their lists. They recently released their list of the World’s Happiest Countries. The top 5 are all Scandinavian countries. I was happy to see that my little spot of paradise, Panama ranked extremely high on the list. It was number twelve, two spots higher than the United States. As far as countries in the Americas, Panama was only behind Costa Rica and Canada.

I can see why, I mean its great down there. And yes there is a lot of hardship and people may not be rich. I just think a lot of people have it right. They focus on family more and value the little things. I guess amazing weather and no natural disasters helps too lol.

Cool Dudes

This is a pic of John Coltrane and Miles Davis in 1956… Miles was always the coolest cat around, but this pic embodies his timeless style. From the lighting to his hair, shades and clothes, everything is superb.
Porfirio Rubirosa, was a Dominican polo player, race car driver and international playboy. He was famous for his jet-setting lifestyle and all of the famous heiresses, actresses and even dictators daughters that he bedded. Rumor has it he had some black in him too lol.

Steve Mcqueen… enough said

5 HOT THINGS EARLY SUMMER

THIS SUMMER IS HOT….

Record setting, blisteringly unrelenting, heat stoke inducing HOT.
And so i find it pretty apropos to write down my list of cinco cosas calientes on my mind right now.

-Tech-

I  love the Range Rover Evoque which was just revealed last week. Its muscly and beautiful at the same time. Much like myself lol
-Read-
The July issue of GQ is great. I like the piece on the oil spill and the way the author personalized the story. It took the tragedy beyond news feeds and blurbs, and introduced the reader to the people present when all hell broke loose.  The workers who died that day have been over shadowed by the tragedy that resulted from the blast. In light of the GQ piece and my daily listenings to NPR, I also got some much needed perspective on the scope of this tragedy and others like it.  Kojo Nnamdi, who ranks pretty high on my list of radio personalities, recent dedicated his show to highlight the fact that this destruction that goes on much broader scale and more frequently in other parts of the world. In the Niger Delta, in Nigeria, there is a spill the size of the Exxon Valdez EVERY YEAR. The link is below if you want to hear the entire broadcast. This situation has reminded me that you always have to look deeper, and put things in perspective. Though it may be disheartening, its our responsibility to know and to tell others and to hear the cries of people whose voices are being dampened all over the world.
-Music-
Anybody who reads this blog should know by now that I love Bolero. Its an entire genre of music full of ballads overflowing with sappy romanticisms and tragic cries of love lost and never fulfilled. I like the harmonies and the guitar. I am especially partial to the Trio groups, those boys could sing and play those guitars like nobody’s business. Everything about Bolero it is great. I have two Boleros that have been on heavy repeat in recent days.
Regalame esta noche= Give me tonight
This song is about a love thats over. The girl is trying to leave and he’s beging for her to stay just this night.
Si tu me dices ven = If you tell me come
this is a song about a dude in love and how all the girl has to say is come, and he’ll give up everything and he’s that he’s lost without her.
-I also have a little something new that I found earlier this week.


ceo – everything is gonna be alright 


-Fashion-
I love the look of a slim summer khaki suit and a blue shirt. Nothing else is quite as cool and sophisticated as a slim summer suit, dark tie and cool shades.

-Food-
FRO YO!!!
