This Month I'm All About.....

Can't believe summer has come and gone, and now September, the month where I tell myself for thirty days that I can still pretend its summer, is over too. Last year I told myself that I wasn't and didn't have to do another winter, and then winter turned out to be a breeze and I got all soft and make plans and obligated myself to all kinds of things that will keep me here in the cold. Have a lot of decisions to make, plans to hash out, things to either dive into or step away from. And all of those things are kinda what I'm about all about this month......

The #Chicago World #Music Festival and @CantecadeMacao

You know how I am always going on and on about my love for flamenco, flamenco fusion, flamenco rock etc? Well, its weeks like this, when Chicago puts on music festivals that I am in heaven and able to get my fill of the sounds that make me feel more alive than anything else. True, over the last few years there have been several flamenco based groups that popped up here and there in Chicago, but even though they are great and I love them, they just don't have that authentic sound that I crave.

About The Name

Now more than ever I find myself explaining the name, Unus Sed Leona. When I started this blog I pretty much just went at it like I did with all the others. No focus, no theme, no one topic in mind, just my sporadic ramblings--- and believe me when I say that I have a lot more rambling through my head than I have the time to sit up and think out through my fingers. 

The names have always been a necessity,

Hydrate at Raging Waves Water Park #Chicago

Less than an hour outside Chicago is a great way to spend the last weekend of the summer season, Raging Waves Water Park. The girls and I had the chance to have a little fun last weekend, not only on the water slides, but riding the Cowabunga zip line as well. Located in Yorkville, IL, in the middle of a bunch of cornfields, are more thrills than most can manage in a day.
