Last week was full of days that made it a pity to go work inside a building with no windows. The days were beautifully clear, it was warm but not horribly so, the ocean was calmer than last month and every day I would whine that we should be in the beach, soaking under the sun with a portable radio and beer; not freezing inside a secluded lab missing the sunset.
The weekend was for pay back.
Saturday I spend the day at the Luis Muñoz Rivera park, touching the trees and charging with sunlight. The park has a couple of historic structures but mostly it has trees. All sorts of huge, old, majestic trees. That kind of nature makes me feel so calm; time passes but life remains, history remains, roots remain and everything is going to be okay.
I think the park liked me too because I was wearing a skirt (!) with a poppy print and I found a perfect one for my ear, it was the best accessory ever.
I played around, enjoyed the day’s breeze in my face and then I headed to the concrete world to watch a movie at Fine Arts. It’s one of those fancy movie theaters that lets you eat and drink wine inside. I had never been there, but any place that lets me sit to watch a movie with a glass of wine by my side is an awesome place that I like even before visiting it. I watched Música en Espera, an Argentine comedy about two people that fall in love in a weird situation. It sounds a lot like a romantic comedy, but it wasn’t because a) it didn’t said those words anywhere in the promo and b) I HATE romantic comedies and I actually laughed during this movie so there.
I woke up Monday morning to see that it was pouring rain outside. It didn’t bother me at all.
