Business casual in New York City!!! The Jingle ;-)

What a great day it was today!

Even though it was rainy, there were no clouds in my sky.

Even though it was cold, I felt so warm inside.

Even though I had no more than a few hours sleep, I sensed the energy running through my body, right down into my feet.

Even though I missed my parents and family so badly, their voices never seemed so close and loudly.


Who knew this time would have come for me? How could I have ever expected it, when only a few weeks ago I was struggling with troubles and praying for an opportunity to knock at my door?


The truth is that, one day you’re up. The next day you’re down.

It is the balance of life that you can’t live without.


Yesterday I was a student in New Paltz University.

Today I’m a New Yorker facing hugeness, and diversity.

I live on my own in a beautiful apartment.

I have a wonderful job in a HR department.

I give people a chance to prove their value, and despite the difficulties, it is never a failure.

Every day is different in this incredible city and I can’t wait longer for new adventures and activities.


Sometimes you get the feeling that all is going well;

Luck is right there, ringing at your bell.


The world is smiling to you.
Your time has come to shine and all your dreams are on their way to come true.


When these days arrive, you better ride the wave! Push yourself to the limit and don’t go far away.

This jingle is a way to show you the truth.

You can always be serious but also funny and cool. 😉


Hugs and Kisses,




Whitney Museum of American Art

On Saturday, I went to Whitney Museum of American Art. It is a museum in New York that has 8 floors and has a focus on 20th- and 21st-century American art, with more than 3 thousands artists and more than 21,000 pieces, including photographs, sculptures, paintings, etc.

My favorite piece was:


The Rose

Artist: Jay DeFeo (1929-1989)
Title: The Rose
Date: 1958-66
Medium: Oil with wood and mica on canvas
Dimensions Overall: 128 7/8 × 92 1/4 × 11 in. (327.3 × 234.3 × 27.9 cm)

“Jay DeFeo began this monumental work simply as an “idea that had a center to it.” Initially, the painting measured approximately 9 x 7 feet and was called Deathrose, but in 1959, the artist transferred the work onto a larger canvas with the help of friends. She continued to work onThe Rose for the next seven years, applying thick paint, then chiseling it away, inserting wooden dowels to help support the heavier areas of impasto. Now nearly eleven feet tall and weighing almost a ton, the work’s dense, multi-layered surface became, in DeFeo’s words, “a marriage between painting and sculpture.”

First exhibited in 1969, The Rose was taken to the San Francisco Art Institute, where it was covered with plaster for support and protection, and finally stored behind the wall of a conference room. Legend grew about the painting, but it remained sealed until 1995, when Whitney curator Lisa Phillips had it excavated and restored by a team of conservators, who created a backing strong enough to support the heavy paint. DeFeo resisted offering an explanation or interpretation of the work, although she did acknowledge that despite the work’s enormous size and rough surfaces, there was a connection to “the way actual rose petals are formed and how they relate to each other in the flower.””


Can you believe it? It took her 8 years to finish this paster piece and weights more than a ton. It was so consuming for Jay Defeo that she took a break of 4 years after the creation of The Rose. You can actually see the making of “The Rose” in a short film by Bruce Connor entitled “The White Rose”.   I’m definitely going to watch it.

I am in the public eye

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

On Wednesday I went to the New  York Public Library to see the photograph exposition of “I am in the public eye”.

At the entrance of the exhibition there was a plasma t.v. with directions of Manhattan with the name “instagram”, so you would choose an address, then click on the photo and you could see all of the “free content” everyone posts on this app. Without them noticing, they are been watched at all times by completely strangers.

There was one project of a man that “posed” for 600 security cameras all around the world. He dressed in the same outfit, so we could spotted him easier. The whole point of this, is to demonstrate that we are being watched at all times, at all places. And it’s completely true, after seeing his project I started noticing everywhere I walk I could see a camera pointing in a direction.

“Thanks to the development of new technology and social media, more photographs are created, viewed, and shared today than ever before. Public Eye, the first-ever retrospective survey of photography organized by NYPL, takes advantage of this moment to reframe the way we look at photographs from the past. What are some of the platforms and networks through which photographs have been shared? In what ways have we, as photography’s public and one of its subjects, been engaged over time? To what ends has the street served as a venue for photographic practice since its beginnings? And, of more recent concern, are we risking our privacy in pursuit of a more public photography? Ranging from photography’s official announcement in 1839 to manifestations of its current pervasiveness, this landmark exhibition, drawn entirely from the Library’s collections, explores the various ways in which photography has been shared and made public. Photography has always been social.” – NYPL

Isn’t a scary thought to know that every time you walk or you are posting on social media, talking a picture on the street, or in the restaurant, it doesn’t matter where you are, everyone is watching…
