sometimes paradise is a love song part 10…

On of my favorite songs ever.!! Enrique Bunbury’s Infinito is hauntingly beautiful. I’m sure that I have posted this song at some point during my early blog years. But it has not made it onto the love song list. Therefore, I think it’s time to rectify that void and share this emotional song with everyone 🙂 Enjoy…

Boundless

“You made a deep impression on me
And now you hurt me*
If everything that’s born
Perish the same way
A moment leaves
And never comes again

And they used to say how beautiful
It was to see us walking
Loving each other boundless
They thought it’d always be the same

How did we let it happen
What did we do wrong
It was due to this damn arrogance
We didn’t know how to swallow

And lie to me a bit at least
Say that you love me even more
That in the meanwhile
You had a really bad time
That any of those fools
Knew how to make you laugh
And that the only thing you care about
Is this poor wretch

(chorus)

And the day I die
And I’ll die long before you
I only want one grief to be cried over
In front of my coffin
That this wound in my soul
Never got to heal up
And it’ll be desperate
Until it sees you coming

(chorus)

A moment leaves and never comes back
A moment leaves…”

sometimes paradise is “es un placer”…

full moon

The other night, one of my beloved former co-workers took this beautiful photo of the full moon in playa.! O.C. made my job so much more enjoyable when I worked in Mexico. He always had the latest gossip and knew everything about everyone. He was the go to guy regarding all the ins and outs of our hotel.

When I asked him yesterday if I could use the photo, he replied “Just do it honey, not problem for me.” Of course, it came with smiley kissy emoticons 🙂 After thanking him profusely, his response had me in stitches.!! He replied in our (former) required hotel speak to guests, “Es un placer” or “It’s a pleasure”. jajajaja

I hadn’t heard those words in forever. We were always proper with the guests when we used it. But with each other, we would try to outdo ourselves with different voices and exaggerated body movements. All those memories came rushing back and made me happy 😀

Oh yes, and the full moon photo was glorious too.!! Have a great week.!

sometime paradise is a ray of light…

ray of light

My wonderful friend, P. the photographer, took this beautiful photo yesterday. It’s been pretty cloudy and cold (70 degrees Fahrenheit – hahaha) the last few days in Playa. But yesterday morning, out of the cloudy darkness, a ray of light escaped.!

Breathtaking.! I hope everyone’s weekend was beautiful 🙂

sometimes paradise is a love song part 9…

I don’t know much about the band Tush. And honestly, “Acostumbrado” is the only song of theirs that I know. My ex introduced me to this particular song. It was one of his favorites. But it quickly became one of mine for many reasons. But ultimately, because I think deep down we can all relate to the desire to be close with someone.

We spend so much time working, running errands, being good and responsible citizens of our city…our world. Responsible creatures to a fault sometimes. Yet, in our lives there is such a dearth of those beautiful, quiet and intimate moments with someone we love. I hunger for that in my life now. More than I hunger for anything else. Enjoy your weekend everyone 🙂 And may love find you ❤

Tush – Acostumbrado (“Habitual” or “Used to“)

“How I love to hear
that game of words
when I am still awake
in the silence here in the bed

without hanging up the telephone
suddenly dawn is upon us
I feel time go so fast
even the moon dissipates

How I would like to have you by my side today
and tell you how much I miss you
huo…

and it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this

How I wish to be right next to your laughs
and feeling your caress all day, I would be there
For now this is what I have left, to find a way
to see you in my arms

How I would like to have you by my side today
and tell you how much I miss you
huo…

it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this

and it’s that I’m used to in the silence
hearing your voice that gets to my bones
and the warmth of your tone most intense
I overflow with love, how I wish you could feel this”

How appropriate that Soy Playense had this breathtakingly beautiful photo of the starry night sky last night. As if the universe itself was paying tribute to the Starman himself, David Bowie, who passed away on Sunday.

RIP David Bowie…what a truly beautiful, magical, and mystical man…

sometimes paradise is paamul…

On Soy Playense’s Facebook page today they had the beautiful picture of Paamul above with the following caption – ¿Ya conocen Paamul? Se los recomendamos para escaparse éste domingo soleado. (Already know Paamul? It’s recommended to escape there this sunny Sunday).

Paamul is a gorgeous town located 10 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and 25 minutes north of Tulum. It’s name in Mayan means ‘hill or destroyed ruin’. It’s not as touristy as either Playa or Tulum; therefore, it’s an ideal site when you want to get away and enjoy the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya 🙂

As I put on my winter boots to run errands today, I’m wishing I was putting on my flip flops instead on my way to the beach.!! Oh well….soon 🙂 Happy Sunday everyone.!!

sometimes paradise is a love song part 8…

I think Reik’s “Inolvidable” was probably the second Spanish love song I learned. I loved it because unlike some other tragic love songs it was happy and upbeat. What a great way to ring in the new year.!! Happy New Year and happy weekend everyone.! Feliz Año Nuevo y feliz fin de semana.!

English translation
Unforgettable

she was so beautiful, she was so beautiful,
her look still burns me,
how i would like to forget her,
but she nears and i can’t help it…

Because when she talks with her eyes,
she says things i cant understand,
and undresses herself little by little,
and converts into your skin.

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her ecape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable….

Was like a story,
she left like the wind,
sometimes i say
that maybe i made it all up…
if i could only,
have some proof,
some reminder that i was with her…

I am going a bit crazy
sometimes I wake
and I feel here my grief,
that whispers in my ear..
and says “where are you?…my love…” (or just ‘love’)

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her escape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable….

And i don’t know how to live,
if i can’t remove her from here,
what i wouldn’t give to kiss her
to embrace her one more time…
and i don’t want to let her escape
that’s if i ever find her again,
i don’t want to lose her
because its only her
unforgettable for my heart,
unforgettable…”
