An almost good-bye to August

It's almost the end of the month and I'm here... with more projects at hand since.... I don't know, the beginning of the summer, maybe.

I am happy.
I miss the Olympics.
I am still reading that book (Do Travel Writers Go to Hell?").
I am not so happy with my slow reading skills.
I am very excited about the new project.
I can't wait for the end of the week and the Arts Fest!!!
I got to eat my first yellow watermelon.
It was delicious!
I am still hooked on Café Tacuba... and some other music.
And... I present to you, my first faked lomo photo. Thank you to a handy little online tutorial.

a summer like this one

Retrato de mi madre

Past summers in this country have been busy. Scheduling around classes, work, conferences and family visits. This is the first summer I have had time to breath and look around me. I've fallen in love with the yellow and greens of this season and I don't want them to go away, although I know the orange and reds of the fall landscape also fill my heart. I wouldn't change a thing about my life, but I am really thankful this summer is slow.. That's my mom in the picture.

Friend... We messed up.
We had to go on an Elizabethtown-like adventure before you left this side of the country.
I've found how beautiful and magical this place can be.
I've also found the statue of the Christ, Dinosaur World and now I know where the bridge is... I found that yellow bridge!!!
Maybe you can come back sometime and we can go find things and take photos.
You can put some music and I'll put some more music for the soundtrack of a trip.

I used to rule the world

aaahhhhhh... dream
It's amazing how we can fall in love with times and things and we can get stuck there. I am excited about life and I want to travel the world. At this point in my life I think I'm meant for something different, though. I believe that my purpose in life right now is to ease the life of others in my family. Please let me know if I'm not fulfilling my purpose like I should be, and help me do it. Thank you God, thank you.

Fun Weekend

I had a blast this weekend. I spent a lot of time with my mom and it was good. We went to see The Mummy- Tomb of the Dragon Emperor today and she was falling asleep in the theater!!! I enjoyed it very much, thought. I'm a fan of all the Mummy movies :)

Saturday was really good too. We went to the farmer's market and here's my favorite picture of that morning:
Can't have a normal face...

It's been HOT everywhere these days... but nice. Summer days are going away! The sun went down at about 8:12 pm yesterday. These days also mark a year since Keren left for home. I'm thinking about her family a lot.

The set of photos from my daddy's visit is finally complete. It's on my flickr here (CLICK). I'm happy to have been able to enjoy him for that time and I hope I can see him again soon.

Tomorrow...farmer's market with my mom!

Happy weekend!
