¿Que creen? What says you? Should we go gently but with a smile on our face? No se, I'm Cuban- the smile esta bien, pero the "gently"? Ok, Si, I hear you. "Pero BB dear, you're getting older you should start doing gentle." JU SO FONII!!! Slower mayyyybbeeee pero gentle? So sorry, can't do it. It's not in my constitution, not in my soul.
Perhaps it was all the sofrito, but I need a bit of "oomph" in life, a bit of spice. I need the passion, the energy- everything felt and done with every atom of my being and down to my very essence. There is no gentleness there, for even in a tender caress the intensity of my beliefs come through, and though "this ol' gray mare ain't what she used to be", she can still give a pretty good kick!
"Life is but a dream"? No, no, no- it's not how most interpret that. Life is not something that happens to us while we're in a dreamlike trance. Bueno, if you think about it, maybe that's why it's usually interpreted that way- because most people are living lives that were pre-programmed by someone else. Por fa gente, MAKE your life YOUR dream. Set your own sights, chart your way, and since you picked the destination, don't fight the voyage. Si, in this way you truly can go merrily down the stream.
BB is living her dream merrily, still with gusto, focus and style. Perhaps the pace has slowed and the baile I dance is now a waltz, but the choice of song is always mine.
