Composite Photo Update, #3 …. 🇵🇷 Honoring my Country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

RedLineBSTatt

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 Hurricane María …. Six Months Later 🇵🇷 …. “!!

TIME DOESN’T STOP FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE

LIFE GOES ON

Hurricane María battered the American possession/colony of Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017.

Life in my country has forever been changed.

Even though this is not top news anymore, the 3 million + American citizens living there are hurting, suffering and dealing with their lives the best way they can.

~THE LADY IN READ WHO APPEARS IN THE VIDEO~

Jennifer González-Colón is the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico and is a Republican. She has served since Jan 3, 2017. González-Colón is next up for reelection in 2020.

Because Puerto Rico is a territory/colony of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate, called the resident commissioner, with limited voting privileges – González-Colón can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.

I don’t agree with her politics and I personally do not like her. 

(How can a woman, from an American colony, be a Republican, escapes my mind’s grasp!)

A little help would go a long way.

This short video explains a lot.

FIEBRE

(FEVER)

My favorite Puerto Rican singer, a man of my young teenage and young adult dreams, my favorite male representative of my LGBT community … he’s at it again!

And he delivers!! 

Need to take my mind off the usual routine and sad reality we are living

It’s Friday … a typical day for celebration and fun.

Enjoy his new video.

Ricky Martin just premiered his new song “Fiebre” featuring Wisín and Yandel and its music video.

Yes, that’s right, the dynamic duo is back!

The newly married singer decided on Puerto Vallarta as the location for his new music video.

And because the 46-year-old star never disappoints, this video is just as steamy as the song.

Rincón Beach Resort …. “🇵🇷 Our Favorite Spot in the World 🇵🇷 …. Before and After Hurricane María …. “!!


A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS

The red * marks the spot where our favorite spot on the world is located.

~RINCON BEACH RESORT~

Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.

The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.

As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.

Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.

BEST INLET EVER

AERIAL VIEWS OF THE RESORT

BEAUTIFUL SHORELINE AND SANDY BEACH

AWESOME, PERFECT RELAXING ATMOSPHERE

HURRICANE MARIA PATH OVER PUERTO RICO

*(the red * marks the spot where the resort is located)*

Image

NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS 

It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.

According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.

Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.

There was no place to hide!

NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE

*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*

It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.

The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.

The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.

THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS

THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE

CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE

INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION

THANKFULLY THE INNER COURTYARD SEEMS ABOUT THE SAME

Thank you to my friend Héctor
