Spring Fever

A day mixed with April showers, warming rays and your sweet kiss marks the rebirth of spring. Take my hand and follow me through all the seasons of life.

PLAYING THE ODDS

I know why you associate Phil Collins’ song “In the Air Tonight” with Miami Vice. The song played during the show’s pilot episode on September 16, 1984. It was an iconic moment in television history, combining cinematography and imagery with music to cater to an “I want my MTV” craze. In a jet-black Ferrari, detective…

In the Air

I used to love to watch Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs work undercover for the Metro-Dade Police Department on the Saturday night television drama, Miami Vice. The creators were great at mixing moody music with colorful visual effects, and the end result was a mind-blowing experience.

That’s the word he uses when he writes, “Ordinary people touch me not. And I am homesick after mine own kind…

Look to the right, and to the left. Catch a glimpse of the surrounding beauty. A flower outside the window. A smile on the…

Forbidden Places

Claire, Our hearts, scorched from rage, were on the verge of turning to ash. The things you said. The things I said. It seemed like the pain of it all had smothered us for good. I was preparing for a life of celibacy and solitude. For who could I ever love but you? Like an…
