Feel Good 5 Friday

7 Aug

Still under lock down stay-at-home orders it’s the one thing that I’m looking forward to …


Andy Casagrande.

Do you know him?

He’s the man. There are so many biologist and camera people that bring us the awesomeness and beauty of sharks. And we’re all excited to catch what’s gonna happen next week.

Shark Week is my jam. I nerd out and feel like George Costanza, that I too can become a marine biologist. With limited beach access it’s the one open-water thrill that makes me feel closer to the ocean and protecting the life that lives in it.

I’m looking forward to Sharkadelic Summer and Mako Nation. My son is a bigger fan than my daughter, but we all cozy up on the couch and watch. We learn something new every time and it’s been a good family tradition. As long as I can remember we watch this week-long event together, shark cupcakes and all.

The week has got me feeling all the great vibes and in honor of these warm smiley emotions I got my beach mixed tape playing all week. When you’re driving to the market and you hear that beat drop … mannnnnnn!

That irritability hides somewhere else in the background because it can’t share the same space as this music. The feeling dissolves and the smile happens. Just like that, you feel good and the frustrations of the day are on pause. Lightness of being is on play.

These tunes coming out my radio frequency and I imagine heading up PCH to feel the warm sand between my toes, and a bit a fresh air … far away from everyone and everything.

Tunes are magical that way. So is Shark Week.

Wishing you sunshine and waves …

Buen Camino!

      Yeah I heard about that one. It’s on Sunday. When in doubt always bet on Jaws 🙂 I mean if Michael Phelps couldn’t out swim one … 🙂 I’m still gonna watch:)

      But I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Sharkadelic Summer with Snoop Dog. I’m wondering what that’s all about. But every week there’s always something interesting and fascinating. Let me know if you watch what your favorite was 🙂

    Wow, again. This: Carlos Vives — La Gota Fria. I love it / Me lo gusta.

    My Cumbia from Paraguay:

    La Cumbia del Monstruo

    It seems that our music taste is quite similar.

    Enjoy Sunday!
