The Isle of the Devil Moon

There is a sorceress that resides on the Isle of the Devil Moon, she sees far into the future and for a price, (that you may not wish to pay), she will give you answers that you may not wish to hear...

Birdie's castle is filled with magic, all sorts of wonderful things can happen there, The sun shines through the clouds and the lightning, letters fly in through the storms and are properly hung to dry and all who attend one of Birdie's magical storytelling sessions must dress for the occasion, it is a most formal affair...Marisol

Junio es un mes maravilloso para el azul, (aunque para mí, todos los meses son hermosos y azules), pero en junio, por el calor del verano, es aún más evidente. Aquí les adjunto unas magníficas imagines de azul!!!

The Garden of Dreams / El Jardín de los Sueños

Here in this garden, where the twilight shares its last rays
Where the wildflowers grow
And the breeze is a sweet caress upon my skin
Here, I gather the petals that the rose has wept and
Smooth out the creases of their pain
Their softness and their scent fill me with longing
As I sit by the fountain in my garden of dreams.

Aquí en el jardín, donde el crepúsculo comparte sus últimos rayos
Donde crecen las flores silvestres
Y la briza es una caricia suave sobre mi piel
Aquí, recojo los pétalos que la rosa ha llorado
Y aliso las arrugas de su dolor
Su fragancia y suavidad me llenan de anhelo
Desde mi asiento junto a la fuente en mi jardín de los sueños.

Un día azul / A blue day

Today is a blue day, in the best way possible…
Blue like those days of intense happiness, when life smiles upon us
Blue as the springtime, and like the waters of a river spring
Blue like the mandarins born of the rosebush that no one ever saw
Blue, simply blue…

 En el buen sentido de la palabra, hoy es un día azul...
Azul como esos días de intensa alegría cuando la vida nos sonríe
Azul como la primavera, como las aguas del rio
Azul como las mandarinas que pario aquel rosal que nadie pudo ver
Azul, sencillamente azul...

Another sweet blue moment / otro momento dulce y azul

It would seem that I'm a bit hungry for sweets today, the kitchen is calling hum!!! Maybe I'll bake a cake or maybe I'll let my little friends have some fun.
 Al parecer tengo deseo de comer algo dulce hoy, la cocina me llama, hum!!! Tal vez haga un biscocho, o quizás deje que mis amiguitos se diviertan.

A Blue Kitchen / Una Cocina Azul

I absolutely love sweets and of course I also love the kitchen, it is the coziest place to be. It's usually where all the good things are, specially the sweets. With this in mind I created the image below. And of course it’s blue… Enjoy!!!
Me encantan los dulces y claro está, también me encanta la cocina., es el lugar más acogedor y usualmente es donde se guardan todas las cosas buenas, especialmente los dulces. Con esto en mente cree esta imagen.  Y por supuesto que es azul… Espero les guste.

Domingo Azul / Blue Sunday

Todos los días pueden ser azules
Si hay momentos hermosos en ellos, momentos de quietud, de intensa alegría, de retrospección. Hoy es mi domingo azul

Every day can be blue
If there are beautiful moments in it, quiet moments
Moments of intense joy and reflection. Today is my blue Sunday

Felíz Domingo Azul / Happy Blue Sunday

Azul como la primavera del recuerdo aquel,
En ese lejano espacio donde éramos otros
Azul como las rosas
Del rosal escondido en los sueños de Aladino
Azul blindado de deseos…
Sencillamente Azul...

Blue, like the spring of that long ago memory
In that faraway place, where we were different
Blue, like the roses
From the rose bush hidden in Aladdin’s dreams
Blue armored with desire
Simply Blue...

La Violetera

Sarita Montiel, a wonderfully talented actress and singer has died today, I remember watching her movies and hearing her music as a child and thinking how beautiful she was.
I created this image in honor of her; it is titled “La Violetera” after one of her most memorable films. Sarita will live on in our hearts and our memories… May she rest in peace.

Hoy ha muerto, Sarita Montiel,una talentosisima actriz y cantante. Recuerdo que de niña veía sus películas y escuchaba sus canciones, que bella la encontraba. La imagen debajo la cree en honor a ella, la titule, “La Violetera” como una de sus películas mas memorables. Sarita seguirá viva en nuestros corazones y en nuestro recuerdo… Que descanse en paz.
