September is here in full force and it always bring some kind of intensity in our lives. Whether it's finishing vacations, starting a new work cycle or remembering life changing historical events that could bring out the best and the worse in ourselves depending how we choose to see it. This past weekend we all stopped and remembered the horrific events of 9/11. It's hard to believe it has been ten years, it still feels like it was yesterday. As a direct witness from across the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; we all saw the world change right in front of our eyes, a jolt to the soul, that made us all New Yorkers closer and united in grief. My heart goes to the families that loss their loved ones on that day. Now we continue to carry on with our resilient nature hoping for a better day. Having said that, I thought to feature a song to clear the palette in a light and somehow escapist way appreciating the little things in life as we always continue to strive for happiness. "Bahia" by Wando was released in 1976 and in became a dance hit during that summer with a gorgeous tropical samba feel that somehow evokes a bitter sweet ending of the season. Enjoy!
