Kate + Paul {Married}

How they met, in her words:

“Cliff (our best man and mutual friend who introduced us) knew I was a musician and spent time at Hideaway Café & Recording Studio in St. Petersburg , so one night in August of 2009, Cliff brought Paul out to meet me there. The next week, Paul’s family was visiting and he brought them all out to Hideaway to see me perform, so I got to ‘meet the parents’ very early on! The next few days led to our first ‘official’ dates and we planned our first getaway together to Pier House Resort in Key West 6 weeks later. About a year later in December of 2010, Paul proposed on the door step of Hideaway Café & Recording Studio. We married 9 months later with our feet in the sand at Pier House in Key West. That night, I played him a song I wrote for him, called “Our Song”. The song will be on my first album, which is being recorded at Hideaway Café & Recording studio this Spring. The cd should release this summer :)”

Dilemma {A poem}

If I were mild, and I were sweet,
And laid my heart before your feet,
And took my dearest thoughts to you,
And hailed your easy lies as true;
Were I to murmur “Yes,” and then
“How true, my dear,” and “Yes,” again,
And wear my eyes discreetly down,
And tremble whitely at your frown,
And keep my words unquestioning
My love, you’d run like anything!

Should I be frail, and I be mad,
And share my heart with every lad,
But beat my head against the floor
What times you wandered past my door;
Were I to doubt, and I to sneer,
And shriek “Farewell!” and still be here,
And break your joy, and quench your trust-
I should not see you for the dust!

– Dorothy Parker


Margarita {Portrait of an Artist}

Tita Castro is a Colombian Visual Artist and Graphic Designer based in Miami who found in art, an opportunity to channel her emotions in a cathartic way. Her paintings and embroiders are a reflection of her own life, her frustrations, insecurities and fears. They are somehow emotional (and physical) nudes, and it is this exposure what makes it easy for people to empathize with her and her art. Her work has been shown extensively in Bogotá, Colombia and last year in a Colombian collective show at Hardcore Art Contemporary Space in Miami.
