Introspection

Overwhelming desire to escape
Stuck in place
Sadness and fear, paralyzing

I hate this feeling
I want to break through the glass ceiling
But something is holding me back

My inner tragedy, glorious
And beautiful I think
At its core it is my captor and rescuer

Circles are fearful
Never ending and repetitive
Drudging depression

Alienation and isolation
I am a foreigner in an unwelcoming land
But the cruelest thing
Is that for a second, it is inviting. Deceptive.

Scars.

Ten silver dreams coming after me

Telling me that I must take

The godforsaken path 

 

So I tread with caution and wonder

And my godforsaken soul

Craves another

 

I’ve lost my innocence

I found myself relief

In cups of sadness and I escape

 

You brought me up and let me fall

And this is my sweet destiny

To destroy myself in passion

 

You think you’re different?

You keep on getting better faster

But I’ve lost my innocence

 

I’ve lost my purity

I’ve lost my confidence

I found myself relief in cups of sadness

 

Bring me up and let me fall

Build me and destroy me

Because my godforsaken soul

Would rather live a life that’s not my own

Celebrity portraits.

It’s been long since I last blogged. I was pretty busy procrastinating studying for exams. Either way, I’ve been riding a fairly large wave of creativity. Here are some of the drawings I produced during this short-lived artistic streak. Recognize any faces?

So there. Hopefully I get another surge of this artsy rush soon!

The gems of Los Cabos.

Los Cabos, a land of enthralling natural beauty.

Where the cool waters of the Pacific meet the warm Mexican sand. Whether taking a siesta under an umbrella sipping a limonata, or attending a fiesta on the beach, or even just relaxing on your room balcony admiring the crashing waves, this place is most likely going to entrance your soul.

Taken at The Marquis Hotel these pictures exemplify one of the better moments of my life.

The infinity pool.

We used to sit by the infinity pool every afternoon, under a sun umbrella, sipping cool drinks, watching the waves.

One of the best features of the hotel. The impressive arch framing the Sea of Cortés, also the lobby.

Overlooking a private casita, or small apartment.

Our friends, the seagulls, never failed to visit us during our afternoon tanning session. They were sometimes rewarded with the odd scrap of bread, or potato chip, although hesitantly, as of course, they’re not quite appreciated by the hotel staff.

One thing that’s so beautiful about the Pacific ocean is it’s deep blue colour. Although many people adore the warm green waters of the Caribbean, I feel the Pacific ocean represents the higher octave of this scale of oceanic beauty.

The waves were quite powerful, and it took me a lot to actually go into the water to take this shot. The hotel staff often told stories of how people were carried out into the ocean, because of the ferocious current.

Notice the allure of the water, the warmth of the sun, and the radiance of the earth, all meshing together to form a breathtaking scene. This photo that I took is a personal favourite, as it incorporates so many different elements. The desert is visible in the background, followed by the sandstone building of the luxurious hotel, and finally  the golden brown sands being pounded by the waves of deep blue ocean.

My favourite aspect of this photo, are the tiny footprints, running along the boundary, to the far left of the picture. Reason? Because it goes to show how futile and helpless we humans are, in comparison to the immensity of the earth. Also, I quite like the colour scheme. The browns and the blues work marvellously.

One of the most prominent features of Los Cabos are the rows and rows of eroded rocks, such as these. Taming the ocean a little, as well as providing a distinct feature to the plethora of wonders, these rocks add a rugged feel to the otherwise serene and synchronized landscape.

My sandals, heh.

So that concludes my 7 day visit to Los Cabos, Mexico. As you can see, it truly is a breathtaking place filled with natural wonders. The contrast between the barren desert and the blue waters is stark and awe inspiring.  What a perfect location for a world class hotel.

And the water… it dances.

…  “But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” – Khalil Gibran.

Another picture I took while in Cabos.
