Vivimos

Vivimos [we live]

for the free fall of life

as it meets the excesses of passion

If we have to die,

well then, we die

but in the meantime

we must celebrate!

RED!  the color of celebration, of sex and passion, of anger and embarrassment.  It’s not quite as popular a color as blue, a bit difficult to work with.  But it’s Oh So Wonderfully dramatic.  If you want to get attention for something, say it with RED.

I haven’t had any rum since my time in the Bahamas this March where I discovered Dark and Stormy Night drinks.  But the Bacardi advertisement certainly peeked my red attention with the passionate motto “Vivimos” and the Cuban revolutionary’s words about dying.
