Help on the Way

Paradise waits, on the crest of a wave, her angels in flames. She has no pain, like a child she is pure, she is not to blame. Poised for flight, wings spread bright, spring from night into the sun. Don’t stop to run, she can fly like a lie, she can’t be outdone. Tell me … Continue reading

No Coincidences in Colombia

This post is in honor of current events happening in Colombia… November 2nd, 2014 – Bogotá, Colombia – Casa Maria E.  Bogota has been great, the only drawback being Transmilenio, the maze of public transportation nobody seems to be able to figure out.
