2014

Sorry about that. Been away a bit. Some things have shifted, changed, improved and even flourished while I wasn’t posting.

First things first, happy new year. 2014, incredible. Ocean’s Twelve was released 10 years ago already. I am 35, and experiencing the real awareness that I am indeed getting older. I get upset when folks in the media, arts, entertainment industry start passing away much like my mother got upset at her own mortality hitting her in the face when a singer she loved for decades would pass away from old age and sometimes, not so old age.

Second, we have a baby girl. Best thing in the entire world. She is a wild child, with a huge smile and even bigger heart. She makes my heart swell with pride and joy and absolute, unconditional crazy love. What an amazing thing it is to be a father. I had no idea of course, and now I get it. She’s fantastic, and has taught me about real love and joy, and compassion. I am grateful to have the privilege to raise her alongside my wife. She means everything to me, and definitely drives me to be a better person and a person of integrity as I know now that it is my duty to be a good example and role model for her, no matter what.

Third, we purchased a home in the bay area. Unreal. Fucking awesome and a testament to hard work, commitment and GREAT credit. LOL. We have had this dream for years, and finally were able to make it a reality.

Fourth, I quit my job. There is a sense of panic there of course, but a sense of jubilation as well. New found freedom and time to spend with loved ones. I can read, paint, draw and just hang out with my family with ease and without the stress of BART, emails or phone calls. I am grateful for the experience but even more grateful for the future I will be able to provide for my family. Great things ahead for sure. Exciting year for myself and my family.

  1. I don’t know what to say…except congrats on your little girl! But I have a question, I got a random follow from
    A Mae Boscana on twitter. I say random because I see she hasn’t tweeted in a while. I find you via her blog and see you’re puerto rican so I’m assuming ‘Boscana’ is her married name.

    If this is true, I think you and I may be related as Boscana is my surname too.

  2. I’ve been doing a little creeping around on you sir. I just got hired as a barista at your new shop in embarcadero center and just wanted to say how excited I am. I have worked a few shops before but nobody seemed to pay attention to quality. Can’t wait to see what it is we’ll be selling and how the store looks.

    Congrats on the baby girl. Very much looking forward to meeting you.
