Lords of Dogtown.

No Lifeguard on Duty
Watch the video.
I went to Newport Beach early this morning. Surf was up... well, surfers were up, surf was down. A beautiful overcast day that invited to sit on the sand and breath the freshness from the sea.

This is some of the footage.

Shaving my Head; a wonderfully Therapy.

Halloween
Watch the video.
Some people go shopping, some eat chocolates, some visit the therapist... I shave my head (and all the above).
New start, clean new page, refreshing like the morning dew and it takes away the worries about how I am going to wear my hair next morning.

Try it,... Just don't do it while holding a camera with your other hand.
Music: March from A Clockwork Orange (Ninth Symphony, Fourth Movement, Abridged) by Wendy Carlos. One of my favorites.

Alex Gets His White Belt

Alex holding his trophy
Watch the video.
Today Alex passed his test for white belt at his TaeKwonDo school "Talium".
He did a great job. I was very impress, even more than with his masters and instructors whom have proven time after time so much patience to deal with all the little kids.

Alex has learned the "Ten closed hand blocks", forward taekwondo kicking: front snap, roundhouse and knee strike and the self defense wrist grab (we have to practice this one a bit more). And he came back home with his new belt, a trophy and a piece of wood he broke with his incredible "fist attack".

Cogratulations son!!

You can watch other of Alex's movies in his vlog.

My design Process

Watch the Video
Watch the video.
I've been quite bussy for the last couple of weeks, but I found time to start the design of the website for my studio; "Escorial Design".

I know, I know... the name is lame but didn't want to expent too much energy coming up with something smart, and witty, and clever that would define me and help to build a perfect image of me for my prospective clients. So it is "Escorial Design.

No additives, conservants or colorants, pure ED.
Anyway, I decided to film how the creative and the production process goes as I advance on the site. Today I talk about the first sketches.

Rain

Watch the video
Watch the video.
Today was raining and the colors of the street were beautiful.
It reminded me of Spain when I was a kid and in rainy days I would look out the window and observe how the water would take the leaves from the trees and carried them away.

The smell of wet earth, the fresh air, and the feeling that everything was being cleansed.
Our pains and our sins, our fears and nightmares, washed away by the rain.

Lux Aeterna

sparkle of light
We are like a sparkle of fireworks on a fourth of July.
We carry our own beauty and uniqueness.
We are born, existing for a moment and extinguishing. Nothing for ourselves and everything. Not different than the rest but unique in our own.
We are light for a speckle of time in the immensity of the universe, and in that short moment, we form a greater beauty we sometimes fail to recognize.
