I didn’t say anything when JuanGa passed away; there was enough people talking about it either way (Even Obama tweeted!)… But, when I heard the idea about doing a tribute in his honor, I thought that was the perfect way for me to contribute and express what we as Mexicans and music lovers feel about it/his passing 😦 So, this September the 30th we’re doing a Tribute to JuanGa and I just wanted to invite you guys to enjoy one of the best Mexican gifts to the world, Juan Gabriel’s music (or as I call him for reference, the Mexican Elton John haha).
I haven’t being able to post for a while; I have excuses 😉 : I got a “You should learn how to write in English” comment, it was made with the best intentions, but it sure hit me and all of my insecurities pretty hard. I wish that suggestion came with a manual, that’s all I’m saying haha… It’s tricky! I know for a fact I’m not doing the best job at this thing but the best way to get better at something is doing it, practicing. Honestly, it took me a while to start for that reason exactly; every post took days, I would write something, review, write it again, have it edited by someone else, then reviewed again and I still didn’t feel sure of what I was doing, but because I wanted to get it out there I figured I might just do a few mistakes and go on. So, with all my heart I tell you, if you have suggestions, tips or whatever, please send them my way, I DO want to improve and fool you into thinking English is my 1st language, in the meantime, thank you for joining me in this Spanglish journey…
While the trauma was strong and steady, I started working a lot in different projects, for exampleeeee:
East Austin Studio Tour, 1st official “The Projecto” participation.
New Image for the website.
Tour dates for a few of the artists & More!
Also, I’ve been attending different really cool events that have been feeding me with great material; one of the really cool things that I’ve seen at such events is “Bella By Sara“a local Floral Designer that blew my mind! The featured image shows a few of the designs she made for ILEA’s “Deep in the heart of Texas” event. AMAZING! isn’t it?!
Well, keep in touch and I’ll be back in track really soon!
