The fall colors

In Autumn/fall the leaves change their color and fall one by one. The beauty of the nature is over the top. It is this, in my opinion, the most dramatic season, where you can see the end of an era and witness the begging of another. Fall is that time of change and it is impossible not to feel that something is also changing on your.

Now, we are not trees, so we can't see how our leaves are falling, but the our colors definitely change. The cold wind make us dress in warmer clothes, most of then are on darker and earthy colors. Now are wardrobe is full of browns (darks, khakis, camels, terracottas..), blacks, grays and some greens, in some ways kind looking like trees.

I have to say that I do love fall/winter fashion, but in lots of ways I loved to brake this color theory of pretend the we are trees and dress on those colors. I know it is not that we are pretending that we are trees literally, and the scale of colors is more relative to the reflection of light and I agree with the color theory, about how dark colors absorb more light compared to light colors and therefore they help us to keep our selfs warmer, but don't you love a bright yellow rain coat, or a cherry red scarves? something that bring back the joy and the color of life?

Theres is not another season on the year where the colors are more intense or crazy, so way just play grey, when you can play yellow? The trees do it, why not us?

What we started a drunken night out

I met Justin in Medellin in May 2007, while he was traveling around Colombia before moving to D.C to attend school. He visited Bogotá and the coffee country before arriving in Medellin, where he stayed at a hostel where one of my best friends, and occasional I, used to work. While I waited for my friend to finish her shift before going out, I saw him first and everything about him grabbed my attention. I remember asking my friend who he was but she was in a bad mood and wanted only to go out and dance the day off. I was glad when I saw him again at the bar I was dancing with friends. Yes, he was good looking and a good dancer but there was something else that made my eyes glued onto him. It was kind of embarrassing— it’s not the Latina seductive style to stare— but I couldn’t stop. Anyway, I’m not really a shy person so, in the end, it didn’t matter that much. Eventually, we found ourselves dancing with each other, pretended to talk and kissed.

We run into each other again the next nig…

Pongamonos los guantes

Bien dice el dicho "EL que no llora, no mama". Yo llore y llore. Llore por twitter, llore por e-mails  y hasta llore por acá contando la historia de mi ultima aventura bajándome de un avión de Avianca ( leer Esperando a Avianca) y ahora pues me ha llegado la hora de mamar.

Yo no soy una experta en asuntos legales ni mucho menos, y cuando todo el incidente paso me surgieron algunas inquietudes sobre como proceder.  Sabia que tendría que hacer gastos extras por la fractura -  transporte en Portland, visita de seguimiento al medico, tal como lo indicaron en Colombia, etc. - y tenia la sospecha de que toda la responsabilidad no era mía. Quizás me resonó en la cabeza el modus operandi de las aerolíneas cuando sobrevenden un vuelo: ofrecen bonos en efectivo o boletos adicionales de vuelo como indemnización y analizaba a la chica que me acompañaba de avianca, notando como se mostraba  cada vez más y más diligente durante el tiempo que estuvo conmigo en la clínica en Bogotá... algo …

Ghost friends

When I was a single woman if after a couple of dates with a guy he stared to not call me, nor to appear on the weekends, we were over. No more dating, and not even care about that boy anymore. I'll take him out of the key chain! and eventually move on. I'll still talk with him time to time, but I'll no care. Now, What to do with a ghost friend? the type of friend that is never around, and when is around is because is "connivence" for him. That friend you feel you can not ask for anything, because you never know what to expect. That friend that just call you when is single again. Can you say then that those types of friends don't show interest on you?; therefore should you brake up with then and move on?

In general we have this idea of friends are unconditional, and we don't have to be around each other in order to be a good friend. It is also common to think that you have different types of friends; for example, some friends are your confidants, others …
