Acting in Films, TV and Theater

Acting in Films, TV and Theater

Acting started 8 years or so ago for me. My son Guille expressed some interest in doing commercials and I took him to a couple of Talent Agencies in San Juan I was able to get referrals to. Once there, I ventured with him and filled out some forms for myself. I had done some acting in High School, but nothing formal. I’ve always said that a Masters in Architecture prepares you for much more than Architecture. Surprisingly, calls started coming and I was sent out to casting calls and gigs. I started booking extra roles in Hollywood productions on the Island. I really liked the experience.

Finding The Perfect Blog Topic

Finding The Perfect Blog Topic

When I started this blog almost two months ago, I visualized it to be a blog about the sailboat, sailing, living aboard a sailboat and technical issues. All that goes into running and fixing a floating home. For some reason it has taken an unexpected turn every time I sit down to write. It became more personal and more spiritual.

Spiritual Connection

Spiritual Connection

Yesterday I received news that my birthmother died 20 years ago. She was 64 years old. Thanks to a special person in my life, I began my quest based on some documents my father gave me when I graduated College in 1985. I remember the time as if was today and Elton John’s Nikita made it all much palpable.

Things to consider when buying your first sailboat

Searching for a sailboat

It all started right after Hurricane María hit Puerto Rico, September 20, 2017, or maybe a little bit before that for me. Looking into old Affirmation and Planning documents I keep writing once in a while, I found that back in 2015 and 2016 I was already visualizing myself owning a sailboat.

Exploring Your Inner Self and Believing in Yourself

Exploring Your Inner Self and Believing in Yourself

I started meditating again. It’s been on and off for the past thirty years. I can pinpoint the starting moment for my spiritual journey. It was 1987; Shirley Maclaine’s Out on a Limb miniseries just came out. It opened in me a new and exciting way to experience life and I really made it my own.

IMAGINE YOURSELF LIVING ON A SAILBOAT

IMAGINE YOURSELF LIVING ON A SAILBOAT

I guess now that I took the plunge and decided to learn to sail and move into a sailboat, makes sense to talk about other moments in my life when I took the plunge and changed direction of my life.

Sailing the Cool Change to Culebra Puerto Rico

Sailing the Cool Change to Culebra Puerto Rico

First Sail Trip outside my comfort zone

No, I did not visit the Southern Hemisphere and witnessed the Southern Cross while sailing the Cool Change... but it felt like it.

I did cross my mental and physical boundary of Icacos and Palominos Keys and ventured almost 20 miles east from Fajardo to Culebra Island with three close friends.  Being a newbie at sailing and still decided to give it my all to motorless sailing, what was programmed to be a 3 hour sail turned out to be a 6 hour into the wind sailing.  I managed to get there and the experience was magical.

Three months living on a Sailboat

Three months living on a Sailboat

Back in April 2018 and less than a week after I turned 56, I bought my first sailboat.  A beautiful 1999 Beneteau 411 docked at Puerto del Rey Marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.  It took me about four months to find my floating home after I decided to buy a sailboat to call home.  Being a pilot and in love with airplanes, it came as a surprise the fact that I bought a sailboat before an airplane, but then again, this wasn’t just a boat, it was home for me.  Just short of two days of finishing my American Sailing Association courses, I was already sleeping over water.
