I'm more of a autumn/winter bird. I'm counting down the days till pumpkin picking, applecider, hiking, skiing, jumping into my comfy sweaters and sipping hot coco while watching the snow fall down.

If you've never heard of the Celestial Classics then don't worry, most haven't heard of it by name. You have however heard most of them in the big blockbuster movies as their frequently used to give a sense of emotion or pace to a scene. Gustav Holst is the composer of the Celestial Classics that range from Mercury to Neptune (sorry they hadn't discovered Pluto by the time he passed away, which didn't matter now-a-days).

Today I found myself feeling somewhat artistic and adventurous, so I grabbed my Nikon and headed out to the trails behind my complex.
Here are some treats from the day:

I have to say that Clare Maguire's song "The Shield & The Sword" is a mesmerizing piece of music. Its simple in its strong beat, yet complicated and flowing with the orchestrated violins in the background.
Her use of lyrics is quite effective too, as she repeats "I no longer love you, no longer love you" you get the sense of complex issues behind such simple words.

Now before you read on you should know that I'm not exactly a Florida person. I hate the sun (due to my pale skin), I hate sweating, I hate large insects, and I hate horrid drivers. Florida, unfortunately, has all these things. However, this vacation was an excuse to get away from home for a short while and see my parents.
Florida is a land of "communities", basically meaning that there are almost no neighborhoods per-say. Most people live in "gated communities" and in between these "gated communities" is a whole lot of nothing. Now coming from a city like Buffalo, which is chocked full of neighborhoods and different districts, I found the whole place so oddly set up. It didn't help that all the streets are numbered, not actually named. So I frequently got last when I meant to take 101st Avenue, but there were 101st St, 101st Rd, 101st Blvd etc etc.
I did however manage to jet ski and "island hop" while in Florida. My parents own two jet ski's, and its usually their staple entertainment on a hot (and by hot I mean 95 and not a cloud in the sky) afternoon. We rode up and down the international coast way, hoping from island to island and basking in the sun. I myself sat under a tree with 45spf on my face, and 35spf on every square inch of my body haha.
It was relaxing, not really having to worry about work, or home, or whatever small things that get in my way. I did miss my boyfriend terribly though. I'm a big affection person, and not having someone to hug or hold hands with for a week was taxing on my mind.
Overall the trip was wonderful, I got to spend time with my parents, get away from the stresses of a normal life, and just be- well, be me. Here are some pictures from the trip.

Just a reminder Kimbra is a musician hailing from New Zealand (and based out of Australia now) her music is a mixture of rock, symphonic melodies, pop, and a dash of soul. Her latest video"Cameo Lover" highlights her unique balance of all these different elements.
Her music is yet unavailable on the US Itunes, but is expected to come later.
Check out her video below

Hailing from Sweden (though they seem oddly Texan to me) the duo is made of two sisters. Their musical styling seems like a toned down version of american folk music, but with a more modern twist. Their lyrics are usually simple, but effective and usually harbor a deeper meaning.
Here is their single off their 2010 album: I Met Up With a King.
Let me know your thoughts.
