A real woman doesn't need a man to make her dreams come true. A real woman makes her own dreams come true and share them with a man.
If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't step forward, you are always in the same place.

Flores de mi jardín

Una tarde de primavera, agobiada por el calor del trópico, la pereza de días tranquilos y el aburrimiento de las tardes de los domingo, tomé mi cámara y decidí simplemente observar las flores, los detalles. En el pequeño jardín de una casa de ciudad (por lo usual son pequeñas, a diferencia del campo donde las personas viven en casas amplias debido a la poca popularidad del lugar entre los habitantes de un país), utilizando el termino apropiado lo definiría como un jardín urbano, capté la belleza y colores de las flores que encontré, así como otros pequeños visitantes.

No hay nada mejor que las flores para levantar los ánimos, su delicadeza, belleza, colores, diversidad, texturas, en fin cada detalle hacen de ellas un verdadero regalo de la naturaleza.

Las siguientes especies, debo admitir que no las encontré en mi jardín, los encontré en uno de mis viajes al campo.

Hollywood Legends: Audrey Hepburn

There are three great women who made of Hollywood a glamorous runway, with their unique styles and sense of fashion, becoming unforgettable trend setters. Two qualities are undeniable, first the fact of having great genes and being gorgeous, each possessing a different type of beauty; and second, their talent shown in every movie they appeared.

I want to begin with Audrey Hepburn. With her delicate beauty and glamour, this Belgium conquered Hollywood and no one can forget that great performance in Breakfast  at Tiffany’s, which has become an iconic character and movie, and now at days many artist want to bring back that scene and copy the fabulous wardrobe. Somehow she became a Givenchy muse by accident. When shooting Sabrina, she visited the upcoming designer Hubert de Givenchy, he was told “Ms. Hepburn was coming to see him, the person who came to his mind was Katherine Hepburn. Once he saw Audrey, he was disappointed and not even nice to her, but time to time, Givenchy and Audrey developed a lasting friendship. She won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for her performance in Roman Holiday (1953). We can also see her in other movies like “The Nun’s Story,” Wait Until Dark,”  “Charade,”  “My Fair Lady,” “Robin and Marian”, and “Always,” a Steven Spielberg Film.

Audrey was no awarded just for being a talented actress, her great sense of fashion and chic taste placed her in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame 1961.  I find it quite interested how fate places us in different circumstances, from suffering, anguish, misery,  to happiness and wealth. Awarded as best dressed and years before she passed through a hard situation during WW II and her mother even had to change Audrey’s name to Edda van Heemstra, in other to sound less English, less dangerous. During this time, she developed acute anemia, respiratory problems and oedema. 

I really admire Audrey, not only because of how talented she was, and being a fashion icon, but because of her good heart. Even though her father was emotionally detached after the divorce with her mother, she kept looking for him and supported him financially until his death. Soon after Hepburn's final film role, she was appointed goodwill ambassador to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Grateful for her own good fortune after enduring the German occupation as a child, she dedicated the remainder of her life to helping impoverished children in the poorest nations. Her first field mission was to Ethiopia in 1988. She visited an orphanage in Mek'ele that housed 500 starving children and had UNICEF send food. She even visited Central American countries like Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Hepburn died in her sleep of cancer, on the evening of 20 January 1993, in Tolochenaz, Vaud, Switzerland, and was interred there. After her death, Gregory Peck went on camera and tearfully recited her favourite poem, "Unending Love" by Rabindranath Tagore.

A BLOG is a super in technology tool, is the evolution of a journal and also the door we open to show our inner thoughts and feelings. Personally i dont expect many to read what I write, but I do expect to enjoy what I write. My brain is constantly creating ideas, writting stories, telling others people's lives,  publishing articles where I talk about my country's beauty, change all the ugly perspectives into something beautiful, making the readers forget about the deffects and make them see just the qualities, it's always about the good, the beauty, the VIP, the perfect shceme, but now is time to share my story. 
Es el momento de contar  mi historia
