Me doy cuenta de que crezcoCrezco como enredadera trepando los postesMe observo de arriba y crezco Crezco,Convirtiéndome en mujerDe la niña retengo la habilidad de soñarCon la mujer adquirí el dolor de la realidadLa Diosa me concede una sonrisaY piernas fuertes para bailar La barba del Viejo brillaPlateada bajo la luz de la lunaMe inunda de sus pensamientosAlimentando los míos Y crezco,Crezco porque no…

It would be a brand new blog. 1 chapter a week perhaps... FYI:  There are fairies,…



She sat in the living room and lifted her hair up above her head, fanning the back of her neck with her free hand.

Villa Tropical @ Shacks, Isabela, Puerto Rico

Isabela beaches are my favorite! The land is filled with natural pools, decent surf waves, and spectacular snorkeling opportunities. And to top it all off, Isabela has that laid back attitude peculiar to the Puerto Rico west and northwest coast. So I'm always looking for a decent spot to stay over there. And that decent spot, that "just right" place with…
