"In an ocean of noise
I first heard your voice
Ringing like a bell
As if I had a choice, oh well!"

-Arcade Fire's Ocean of Noise

 

A world of empty streets adorned my periphery just before I fell and lost myself in its charm....Absorbed-(a)mazed-bewitched…. Shipwrecked in her cobblestoned streets.

Oh, how a day in the City will, in effect, abuse your faith and leave you bloodbuzzed among the patron saints of lost causes. Stranded to the haunting idle of our sins and vices.

*San Sebastián (Saint Sebastian) was a Christian who was martyred for his faith. There is a street on the north side of Old San Juan named in his honor.

-           

Un mundo de calles vacías adornaba mi periferia justo antes de caerme y perderme en su encanto....Absorto-ensimismado-embrujado.... Naufragué en sus calles adoquinadas.

Oh, cómo un día en la Ciudad, en efecto, abusa de tu fe y te deja abarrotado entre los santos patronos de causas perdidas. Abandonado al ralentí inquietante de nuestros vicios y pecados.

*San Sebastián era un cristiano que fue martirizado por su fe. Hay una calle en el lado norte del Viejo San Juan nombrado en su honor.
