What will the new year bring?


For me, it is a new blog focused on showcasing my art, photography and poetry. It also brings the opportunity to visit good friends and make new memories abroad but more on that later. My new blog, entitled Walks in Beauty, is an attempt to make a small personal portfolio of my work available online as well as a way to connect with my readers and friends in a new and different way. Previously I often kept my work private and showed it to people only occasionally but I have decided it is time to share! So, what will this new year bring you?

IMG_0999Happy New Year everyone! I hope that as you celebrate the old year passing and the new one beginning you will look upon it with renewed hope for a better future for mankind and a more prosperous one for all. Here at home we celebrated with traditional Venezuelan food, a particular staple called the hallaca is what we were making and above are the veggies I assembled to make a vegetarian version for the first time ever. I must say it turned out quite delicious and the friends we had over to celebrate with us enjoyed them very much. The traditional meat ones for made, of course, but I decided to go for making these.

As we prepared for the celebration I took some fun photos with a couple of new apps I acquired on my iPhone. Have a look:

I think this new year is going to bring exciting things our way! What do you think? Here is a photo of my vegetarian hallaca, and let me tell you that it was delicious!!!


Have a very Happy New Year friends!

Happy New Year! Feliz Año!

Happy 2010 everyone! I know I haven’t posted anything in a while but there has so much been going on lately that I’ve not been able to gather my thoughts properly. Life changes lightning fast when we least expect it and the last two months of 2009 were not as I expected needless to say. My fam and I left Princeton in November and I ended up in Upstate NY while my folks went West to Washington State. I miss them but at the same time am so happy to be closer to NYC and a few steps closer to fullfilling my dream of living in Manhattan! It is what I have wanted all my life and I am eagerly awaiting the chance to do so.

As a new twist on a new year, I have decided to use this blog to showcase each day in my life through photographs. My goal is to write everyday starting today and add photos that I take each day. For me it is an exercise in writing and photography and something that I hope will help keep me inspired with the day to day. So, to start off this new blogging season I went out for a brisk winter walk today and took some fun pictures! Only I would think it great to take a walk in the snow when we’re experiencing what the weatherman called an “arctic blast” and nearly freeze my fingers off trying to take some pictures.

All in all, I found that it is quite possible to find hidden pockets of beauty in the most unlikely places. So, without further ado, here are a few shots from my walk this afternoon:

I hope you enjoy those shots! I look forward to hearing what you all think of my love of snow! Have a wonderful January! More to come tomorrow!
