Wake up!

Wake up!

I dare you!

I dare you to open your lungs and embrace the fresh air sparking a new day!

Spread your arms like an eagle taking flight

I dare you to scream out loud, regardless of who is listening because you know how truly blessed you are

I dare you, no double dare you-triple dare you to wake and accept LIFE!


If they choose to be rocks then become water

If they choose to be the sand in your eyes then become wind

If they choose to be defiant then become persistent

You can always choose resilience at a crossroad.

Sometimes the right thing to do is to get up

Literally standing up is what makes sense

Words are as physical as we make them to be

Words can trigger tears, trigger joy, trigger justice and even trigger the trigger

In my history, some persons stood up just so that I can now sit with who I want, where I want and as long as I want.

Some persons stood, spoke, fight and marched for me.

Today let us remember that we too can stand, at any time for what’s right!



Someone forgot to tell you that you are a seed

Sometimes things will go off balance and in the midst of your growth you lose a few leaves here and there

Maybe your root is tampered with a little and you wither down somewhat

But then the universe grants you showers of rain and ray of sunshine

and before you know it, you are blossoming again

Someone forgot to tell you, that you are a seed.

Written in the stars : Ricardo & Erica

Imagine waking up beside your best friend every day

Sharing smiles, memories, struggles and joys with the same heart for years

Being able to read their emotion without a single word

Being able to predict a reaction without any subtle hints

You know them, like you know yourself, maybe even more than

Watching your children grow before you as testimony of the years of your love-

the fruits of that special bond-

and then to be asked a question that will, before God and all loved ones, formally testify how true this love this

Imagine your name written in the stars before you knew it

Imagine love


For: Erica and Nardo : Congratulations on your engagement!

Another chance

Let go of what was, and embrace what is

Be courteous to at least one person and let it trickle to thousands

One good deed each day changes at least 365 lives

All this power you never acknowledged you had

If you are reading this, you are alive

If you are alive, then you have the chance to do and be anything you think is best!

Happy new year!!!
