Grammy Highlights

The 53rd annual Grammy Awards, the biggest night in music, took place Sunday night. There were several awards that came as a surprise to a lot of people, including me. Two of them, I never heard of before. These includes Best New Artist, Esperanza Spalding and the Album of the Year winner, Arcade Fire.

There were several good performances which included two performances by Rihanna, one with Eminem and the other with Drake. Katy Perry‘s segment showed a never-seen-before clip of her wedding with actor-comedian Russel Brand. Bruno Mars earned a standing ovation for his performance which also showcased his talent in the drums. I personally liked Ceelo‘s performance with Gwyneth Paltrow and the puppets.

It’s Love Day

On this special day, I want to post a poem written by my high school classmate, Rene San Andres for his wife. Rene has been working in Saudi Arabia for  8  years. The distance between him and his family  inspires Rene  to write poems, anecdotes and other literary works to lessen the pain and loneliness of being away from home. The heartfelt feelings that he can’t express personally to his loved ones are conveyed through his works.

In recognition of his courage, love, wisdom and aspirations, I would like to share this poem to you, readers on this special day.

Happy Valentines’, my dear.
It’s the day of the hearts deeply in love..
My wife greeted me this morning

Gosh, too many occasions that I let go off..
Birthdays, anniversaries and this special love day…
But I always have thing to say..
