The feature photo was taken at a resort in Porto Seguro, Brazil—a coastal resort town in the Brazilian state of Bahia. This is also the location where I finalized the name of my first book’s main character, his name’s Rigil. Care to connect the dots? Read more about the Booj-Wah-Zee COLLECTION here!

Above shining and beneath your surface, a burning crust.
Dirty minds rhyme with what creates us.
It’s between us men.
A divided line of trials.
11 miles and for each a breath I smile.
You all respected in gratitude.
I created a beautiful mess; now here I elude.
Of the childish nature in I, the deed is shy.
Every moment walking into my why.
A runner’s bliss—why am I here?
Because the idea defends a cry.
My words are nothing to you.
But fate’s virtue; so, who is I?
A writing bird, protecting verbs.
In other words, I’m here to write.
Take action on my fights.
And you I look up to.
A hero tonight.
Running next to stars.
Wishing upon the hottest.
Bold next to the modest.
A planet I see is the brightest.
I run with you in view.
Like Venus, I could be running for you.
