I’m a chronicler and I try to write honestly about things that others short change. I separated myself from what was the norm and from my corner I provided commentary on the city, the country, and the world. Right now, I’m healthy, I’m still writing, I’m still recording and working. And that, I will never take for granted. I will always appreciate it.

Many of these words are like a mirror, that Gabriel García Márquez created. His birthday is today and he would have turned 90 years young. Gabriel José García Márquez was born on March 6, 1927, in Aracataca, Colombia. He died on April 17, 2014, aged 87 in Mexico City, Mexico.

Gabriel José García Márquez was born on March 6, 1927, to Luisa Santiaga Marquez Iguaran and Gabriel Eligio Garcia in Aracataca, Colombia. The prize-winning journalist was best known to many as simply Gabo. With lyricism and marked wisdom, Marquez has been recognized as one of the most remarkable storytellers of the 20th century.

Gabo is on his way to myth: the new 50,000 peso bill, around $20 dollars carries the portrait of the Colombian Nobel prize winner.
